With exceptional versatility, Soft Body gives you the freedom to paint, pour, glaze or print on almost any surface.

As our most versatile format, its low viscosity consistency takes you seamlessly from silk screen to fine detail illustration, large surface to air brush as your creativity drives you.

Its finely milled high pigment load guarantees smooth, even vibrancy whatever technique or surface you're working on.

Open up a bottle of Liquitex Soft Body today and unleash a world of possibilities.


If you thought Soft Body was just a watered down Heavy Body, you'd be wrong. This flowing low viscosity formula was actually created first. The two paints have compatible binders and pack the same high pigment load. But if you thin Heavy Body with water or mediums, you reduce concentration and get noticably weaker colors. Paint feel, performance and stability is also impacted, so choose the right consistency of paint for the job.


When you’re working, your tools need to work for you. Our ergonomic bottle and clear labeling have been designed in collaboration with artists, to help us create what we believe is the perfect format. It’s fully reusable and recyclable - and not a drop of paint will go to waste.

  • Stackable & squeezable
  • Easy-open and close lid
  • Screw-off top
  • Extra-wide neck with no shoulders to trap paint
  • Tapered nozzle with cut off marks
  • Technical info in one place

If you had to choose one paint – this would be the one you’d get most out of. Soft Body suits a wide range of techniques and applications. It loves almost any surface and dries flexibly and quickly for easy layering and masking. Want something new? Use a professional medium to change its character further.


If it sticks to it, you can use it. Use Soft Body on:

  • stretched canvas
  • photo paper
  • plaster & brick
  • clay & pottery
  • paper & board
  • wood, fabric & glass


On a client’s wall. In a gallery. Your work needs to stay as you intended. As with all Liquitex products, the pigments in Soft Body have passed extensive tests for lightfastness.

Each pigment is rated according to the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM), and we only use pigments rated ASTM I or II*. This means your work will have the greatest archival permanence possible – at least 50 years+ in gallery conditions – with no color shifting or fading, to stay vibrant and true.

*Some pigments, such as fluorescents, are not rated vibrant and true.
