Rosco CrystalGel is a non-toxic, water-based material which provides a clear, plastic-like coating on virtually any surface used in modern stagecraft. It air dries quickly - usually within hours - to a flexible, translucent surface. When dry, it can be painted with any Rosco Scenic Paint, or carved, or safely rolled without cracking, peeling, or sticking. Such products as sand, sawdust or powdered clay can be added to it to create unique textures. Paint, dye, glitter, mica powders may also be added to CrystalGel and then applied to a substrate.
CrystalGel is a styrene resin, providing the greatest adhesion power of any non-oil based product. Among the soft surfaces to which CrystalGel will adhere are styrofoam, ethafoam and, of course, muslin and fabrics. Among the more rigid surfaces to which CrystalGel will adhere are metals, glass, plastics, wood, Luan and fiberboard. It is particularly effective in adhering to plexiglass without cracking or falling off.
Rosco's CrystalGel is an extremely versatile and useful tool for stage, TV or film. Perfect addition for set designers, scenic artists or anyone who needs to spice up the stage. It remains flexible, can be painted or carved, can be tinted and, because it sticks to just about anything, it can be used as an adhesive. The uses of CrystalGel are only limited by your imagination.
Please Note: Do not apply when surface or air temperature is below 50°F (10°C). Protect unused product against freezing. CrystalGel will freeze and become unusable at temperatures below 32°F (0°C). Do not take internally. Use with adequate ventilation. Keep out of the reach of children.
