What is Acrylic paint?

Fast-drying and water based, Acrylic paint is comprised of a pigment suspended in an acrylic co-polymer binder. This is then applied to a support such as a canvas. The pigment fixes to the support upon evaporation of the water, producing a slight colour change in the process. Acrylic paint dries to a water-resistant, flexible finish, making it the ideal medium for a number of craft purposes including screen printing and model making.

All colours can be thinned with water to pale washes, or used directly from the pot or tube. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work speedily, and a hairdryer may be used to further accelerate the drying process.

All Liquitex Heavy Body colours are fully intermixable and suitable for interior and exterior use, ideal for all art and craft projects. Different textures and effects can be created with these acrylic paints by adding a medium such as Super Heavy Gel or Glass Beads.

Once completed and dry, a thin layer of varnish may be applied, to protect and preserve artwork. Varnish is available in satin, matte and gloss finishes.

Acrylic paints are water-based, so brushes used to apply the paint need only mild soap and water to clean them after use. This video illustrates how simple it is to clean and care for acrylic paint brushes.

Why choose Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic?

Who are Liquitex?

Founded in 1933 by Henry Levison, Permanent Pigments, an oil colour producing company from Cincinnati, Ohio developed the first water-based artist acrylic paints. Their new formulation was launched in 1955, under the new company name Liquitex, an abbreviation of “Liquid texture”, which Levison believed better captured the product’s essence.

Today, Liquitex offers a vast array of intermixable vibrant acrylic paints and mediums, enabling artists to continually explore new and innovative ways of working with Acrylic Colour.

Liquitex is a great brand - it is very important to me to be able to rely on a stable an consistent set of paints - very useful with this one is the possibility to know the exact pigment they use.
