Liquitex Professional Heavy Body Acrylics are made to have an exceptionally smooth, thick, buttery consistency, ideal for traditional art techniques that employ brushes and painting knives, as well as experimental, mixed-media, collage, and printmaking applications.
A high pigment load produces rich, brilliant, permanent color, combined with good surface drag that provides excellent handling and blending characteristics with increased open working time. When used for thick and impasto applications and techniques, Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics retain crisp brushstrokes and knife marks.
Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics remain flexible when dry, and thick films remain free of cracks and chips over time.
Liquitex also offers seven Cadmium-Free Colors - Finally, an alternative to cadmium colors that measures up. This innovative line delivers the same performance, vibrancy, and lightfastness as genuine cadmiums, but without the potential hazards. These paints were developed over a three-year period and underwent rigorous lab tests and artist trials to ensure they were truly equivalent. Cadmium-Free Heavy Body Acrylics are certified AP non-toxic.
