I have built up a section on my current WIP on canvas with acrylic gel. The texture has become bothersome and out of control.
How can I reduce it? Sand it down?

Well, you have nothing to lose by sanding! :)
It's accepted practice to sand the surface of the canvas/gesso, so why not the gel medium? Good luck!

Go ahead and sand it down. This has happened to me before also.

Thanks for the replies. I was probably going to do it anyway. Just wanted some affirmation. :wave:

In case it's not obvious, be careful not to inhale the dust when you sand any painting materials, they can have some hidden ingredients you really don't want in your lungs :D
