How to make the most of Liquitex products

 

Step 1: Liquitex modeling paste and light modeling paste are fantastic mediums that can be used to create thick paint applications without using up all your paint. The light modeling paste creates softer peaks and is ideal for applications where the weight of the finished piece is a concern. Mix a little paint with the paste and apply it with a palette knife to create expressive textures. The amount of paint you mix with the medium will determine how concentrated the colour is. Because modeling paste is a mat white, mixing it with your acrylic paint may change the colour and finish of your paint. For a glossy finish without diluting the colour try Liquitex heavy gels instead.

 

Step 2: Liquitex acrylic inks are opaque inks that can be applied with a brush or using a drip method. These inks are water resistant, dry quickly and can be applied as a watercolour on paper or over other acrylic paints for vibrant splashes of colour.

 

Step 3: Liquitex string gel changes the viscosity of your paint to a honey-like texture, making it more elastic and stringy. Mix a little bit of paint with the string gel and drizzle it over surfaces using a splatter brush, paintbrush, palette knife or spoon. Don't worry, although it appears cloudy at first, this medium will dry transparent and let your colours shine through.

 

Step 4: Liquitex Freestyle brushes come in a variety of shapes and sizes to help you experiment with texture. The flexible bristles of the Freestyle splatter brush bounce with a slight flick of the wrist creating perfect splatter patterns instantly. Experiment with other ways to make texture with this unique tool.
