Soft Body FAQs
Other artists have asked us...
Is it true that Soft Body was the first acrylic paint ever invented?
Yes it's true that it was the first commercially available water-based acrylic paint designed for artists, back in the 1950s. Then it was called Liquitex Medium Viscosity.
Are you doing cadmium-free colors in Soft Body?
Yes! We are now offering Liquitex cadmium-free colors in Soft Body and Acrylic Gouache, so you can choose your consistency. We might look to offer these colors in our other ranges in the future.
Is the Soft Body the same paint as before?
Yes. Nothing has changed in the formulation of Liquitex Soft Body, it's just the outer packaging that has changed.
