What it does
  • Allows you to create a spectrum of viscosities - the more you add the thicker it gets - from an oil paint weight, to a uniquely spongy, cake-like, aerated texture
  • Gives a matte surface finish
  • Maintains same levels of transparency and color
How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Start by adding a very small amount of Liquithick to your color/medium
  • Mix well with a palette knife, adding more (up to 25% maximum) until you get desired consistency
  • Once applied, leave to dry for five to seven days for maximum strength and flexibility
How not to use it
  • As this is an additive – with no acrylic binders - do not add more than 25% to your color/medium and do not mix with other additives. This can cause excessive shrinkage, cracking and the acrylic film to break down
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
