Flow-Aid Fluid Additive Increases the flow, absorbency, and blending of any water-based paint, ink, or dye. Minimizes brushstrokes. Use with Liquitex Soft Body color to create very fluid washes without hard edges; create staining effects on raw canvas and produce a fluid spray when mixed with acrylics in airbrushes or air guns.
Gel Mediums add dimension to paint, extend drying time, create thick transparent glazes, enhance colors and textures and can act as an archival adhesive.
Modeling Paste Extra Heavy Body and very opaque. A marble paste made of marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion. Used to build heavy textures on rigid supports and create three-dimensional forms. Dries to the hardness of stone. It can be sanded or carved when thoroughly dry. Can be handled like clay if the top of the container is removed and some of the water is allowed to slowly evaporate until it reaches a clay-like consistency. Adheres to any non-oily, absorbent surface. Drying too quickly causes mud cracking that is usually cosmetic, not structural. When mixed with acrylic colors will act as a weak tinting white, while increasing thickness and rigidity. Excellent substrate for acrylic paint, oil paint, oil pastel, oil bars, watercolor, graphite or dry pastel.
Matte Varnish is will not crack as surface expands and contracts during temperature and humidity changes. Applicable for any acrylic painted surface (flexible and rigid) on canvas, paper, wood, stone, Plexiglas, etc. Not for use over oil paint. Flexible, archival, non-yellowing and water resistant when dry. For interior use only. This product is an essential for any collection of acrylic painting supplies.
Slow-Dri Gel Retarder retains brushstrokes and adds body when added to to lower-viscosity colors such as Liquitex Soft Body Artist Color and Soft Body Mediums. Add no more than 25% to paint, as the absence of a binder may weaken the stability of the paint film if too much is added.
