Since their development in the mid-20th Century, acrylics are now established as one of the most important innovations for artists in paint technology. The popularity of acrylics with painters can largely be attributed to their versatility and the wide range of acrylic painting techniques that can be achieved. Appreciated for their own merits of color brilliance, quick drying time and use with water, acrylics can also provide great results using both water color and oil color techniques, enabling artists to bring their ideas and creative vision to life.
With a wide range of acrylic paints, mediums and tools, Liquitex provides you with all of the materials you need to achieve a variety of acrylic painting techniques. With the widest array of acrylic paints in the world, including different viscosities and specialty paints, in addition to a broad range of acrylic mediums, Liquitex enables artists to explore the full range of tactile as well as visual properties of acrylics.
As acrylic mediums can be a difficult area to understand, we’ve tried to simplify their usage by classifying our products into three distinct areas: Prep, Paint, and Finish. See our Mediums section and Resources section for more information and to gain more inspiration for how to bring your acrylic painting ideas to life.
Finally, tools. Liquitex offer a range of professional quality knives and brushes to help you apply your paints and mediums and to take your creativity to a new level. We cater for artists working at all levels and scales of artwork with products that are suitable for both large murals/ canvases and for more intricate artwork.
