A DIFFERENT KIND OF SPRAY

Low odor, high pigment. This is spray paint but not as you know it. It's come into the studio and designed for fine artists. Discover more about the range and the options it gives you here. 

MORE INFO

Low-odor

We’ve made our spray paint a lot more pleasant and safe to use when working both outside and in. Unlike solvent-heavy sprays, this solvent-light formula gives far less fumes.

WATER-BASED

Water-soluble when wet, yet permanent and water-resistant when dry. You get the best of both worlds. Once sprayed, all the water in the paint evaporates quickly, leaving a flexible acrylic film of color behind. The color is permanent and doesn’t move - which means you can over-paint without bleeding and achieve multi-layered surface effects. 

Using water-based technology means you can take advantage of a slightly longer open time than you get with regular sprays. Try using the extra time to work the paint in different ways. Spray color into the cap and apply with a brush. Blend your color layers, apply wet-in-wet and get new effects. 

Care

Fine art tools need looking after and our Spray Paint is no exception. It’s a pigmented paint and delivery system in one, so you need to treat it with as much care as you would your brushes and tools. Here’s a few tips:

  • Always start with a clean cap – paint doesn’t flow well through a dirty nozzle. If it’s dirty, replace it with a fresh one
  • Shake the can for a minute before you start to keep the pigment/binder evenly mixed
  • Keep it upright as you spray
  • Apply in short, frequent bursts 
  • After use, spray upside down until nothing comes out, then remove the cap and give it a quick clean (before paint dries) with soap and water or Cap Cleaner 
  • Keep the cap cover on when not in use, to stop paint from drying out

We've re-engineered our nozzle design to make it easier to avoid blockages and have a range of accessories to help you – from a bespoke Cap Cleaner to replacement caps in a choice of sizes. 

VERSATILITY

Low solvents means it’s safe for more substrates and techniques. So you can use Spray Paint where and how you like, on a wider range of materials, including styrofoam. Use it to paint, to create special effects, to intermix with other paints and media. To lay down an even coat of color over vast areas and uneven surfaces. Each 12oz can covers 21sqft/2sqm and the spray nozzle ensures color gets into every nook. Use it on stretched canvas, card, board, glass, wood, masonry, brick, ceramics and styrofoam.

PRE-MIXED SYSTEM

Most artists use our Spray Paint directly on their surfaces, without mixing. So to help you get consistent tints and shades, we’ve pre-mixed some colors by adding black and white pigments to create a complete tonal range. If the color name includes a number, you know it’s had a monochrome pigment added - here’s a guide:

  • Cobolt Blue Hue - our regular Liquitex Cobolt Blue Hue color
  • Cobolt Blue Hues 1–4 - these have had black pigment added to Cobolt Blue, to create a deeper shade
  • Cobolt Blue Hues 5–8 - these have had white pigment added to Cobolt Blue, to achieve a paler tint

ARCHIVAL

You can rely on the highest quality color-intense artist pigments when you use Spray Paint. Our pigments are processed using the latest basket bead-mill technology, where tiny reinforced ceramic beads give fine dispersion, great color development, strength and brightness. You get true color purity and archival stability in a spray.

Whether it's on a client’s wall, or in a gallery. Your work needs to stay as you intended. As with all Liquitex products, the pigments in Spray Paint 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.

*Fluorescent and metallic pigments are naturally less lightfast

Spray Paint FAQs

Other artists have asked us...

  • Can I use your pro Spray Paint with your regular Liquitex acrylic paints?
    Yes! You can use our Spray Paint with any Liquitex Professional or Basics colors or mediums - that’s the power of Liquitex intermixability. All our materials are formulated with compatible binder systems so you can layer, smudge, mix, blend in any combination to get something unique to you.
  • How does the drying time of Liquitex Spray Paint compare to solvent-based spray paints?
    Due to Liquitex Spray Paint's water-based technology, drying time is slightly longer than solvent-based spray paints. This offers the advantage of increased working time and the ability to mix with other Liquitex acrylic colors and mediums.
  • What coverage can I achieve with a can of Liquitex Spray Paint?
    A 400ml can of Liquitex Spray Paint will cover approximately 21 square foot/2 square metres.
