Well-pigmented paints with a thick consistency
16 Mar 2019 |

I really like these paints and have used Liquitex Heavy Body very successfully for palette knife work. You can scrape them on thinly to get a transparent or translucent effect, and lay it on with a knife for lovely textured strokes. Holds the form well. [I used to use Daler Rowney but the lids seemed prone to breaking off.]. The colour selection is a bit odd. Great to have 2 tubes of Titanium White. No Ultramarine Blue - pity. No Alizarin Crimson, but Quin.Magenta instead. Diox.Purple and Emerald Green are included, but I'd have preferred Ultramarine, and a cool/lemon yellow to go with the Cad Yellow Medium provided. You get Bronze Yellow - a new one on me - looks to be somewhere between Yellow Ochre and Raw Umber. The other colours are Ivory Black, Phthalo Blue, Brilliant Blue, Cad Red Light and Phthalo Green (Viridian).

Heavy Body artist acrylic paint previously referred to as high viscosity and has a thick consistency for traditional art techniques using brushes or knives as well as for experimental, mixed media, collage and printmaking applications. Impasto applications retain crisp brush stroke and knife marks. Good surface drag provides excellent handling and blending characteristics with increased open-working time. 

The set contains 12 x 59ml tubes: cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red light, quinacridone magenta, phthalocyanine green, phthalocyanine blue, brilliant blue, bronze yellow, dioxazine purple, 2 x titanium white.
