Key Features
  • 100% acrylic polymer and marble dust lightweight putty builds form and structure
  • Dries to a hard, opaque white matte finish. Gives minimal shrinkage.
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or painted once dry
  • Can be used to add body to paint and create pastel tints
  • Can be overpainted with acrylics, oils, watercolors, graphite or dry pastels
How to Use
  • Can be handled like a lightweight clay - for best results remove the lid to let some of the water slowly evaporate until you get the texture you want
  • For sculptural texture, build up in thin layers (each no more than a quarter of an inch thick), allowing each to dry. Dry slowly by covering loosely with plastic wrap to avoid shrinkage cracks
  • To use as a ground - apply a thin layer to rigid surface with knife/trowel/roller, leave to dry, sand smooth and repeat if needed
  • To make an absorbent ground, mix 1 part Modeling Paste to 3 parts Liquitex Gesso, apply with a trowel/roller, leave to dry, sand smooth and repeat if needed
  • For paper-mache, soak paper in a 50/50 mix of Modeling Paste and Gloss/Matte Gel/Gloss Heavy Gel
