- A thickening gel for water-soluble acrylic paint and acrylic mediums.
- Used in small amounts, produces handling characteristics very close to that of oil or encaustic paint.
- At higher concentrations, can thicken paint or acrylic mediums to “cake“ or sculptural consistency.
- Drying time will be between 24 hours to 7 days depending upon the amount of Liquitex Liquithick added to acrylic paint or acrylic medium.
- Liquitex Liquithick does not increase transparency.
- Liquitex Liquithick produces a matte surface sheen when dry.
- Paint and medium shrinkage will occur in proportion to the amount of Liquitex Liquithick added.
- Contains a unique polymer
- Start by adding a very small amount of Liquitex Liquithick to acrylic paint or acrylic medium and mix well with a palette knife. The proper proportion will vary with colour and desired effect.
- Proportions of 20 or 25 parts colour to 1 part Liquitex Liquithick will change the handling characteristics.
- Continue adding Liquitex Liquithick slowly until the desired viscosity is achieved.
- Add only enough for the desired effect and do not exceed a 1 to 4 ratio as excessive shrinkage and cracking may occur.
- Liquitex Paint Additives are similar to acrylic mediums in that they are mixed into acrylic paint and acrylic mediums to change consistency, thickness, transparency, sheen, drying time and absorption rate. However, they are different in that they do not contain acrylic polymer emulsion.
