Liquitex was the first water-based acrylic paint created in 1955 and since then we have partnered with artists to ensure that we continually evolve and innovate. Since there is no universal view on the potential harm of cadmium pigments, we have decided to acknowledge this and offer both alternatives side by side so that artists can make a choice based on their personal preference. We are proud of being first in the market to introduce a parity performance cadmium-free alternative to health and safety conscious artists.
