This introduction set from Golden is a great way to get started with Heavy Body paints, or top up your current collection. Featuring six 60ml tubes, this set has been curated to allow the broadest range of colour mixing and experimentation.
The high pigment load in each paint produces rich, brilliant, permanent colour with an exceptionally smooth, thick buttery consistency which retains brush strokes and palette knife marks. Great for thick/impasto applications and painting techniques. The paint is flexible when dry; the thick films remain free of cracks and chips.
The Heavy body colors retain excellent flexibility when dry, greatly diminishing the possibility of cracking that occurs in other natural and synthetic polymer systems. This means you can even use Liquitex Heavy Body paints on fabrics including Leather.
Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Colour is ideal for experimental, mixed media, collage and printmaking applications.
There are no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, or dyes added.
Because Heavy Body colours contain no matting agents, the gloss of each color will be different. Colours that tolerate a higher pigment load dry to a more opaque, matte finish. Colours that are more reactive and do not allow as much pigment loading tend to have a glossier, more transparent, finish.
