My media of choice is acrylic. A lot of my work is textured acrylic. I add a gel medium to the acrylic or on occasion another compound to achieve the thickness I want. Layers are added to complete the desired effect. I use a variety of tools including, palette knife, spoon, putty knife, trowel, spatula, pastry bag, & a paint brush. I often just grab whatever is handy & fun to experiment with. I'm always on a treasure hunt for new tools to use & explore new ideas.
