Liquitex Basics were developed for students and artists who required dependable quality at an economical price. Each color is uniquely formulated to bring out the maximum brilliance and clarity of the individual pigment.
These are heavy-body acrylics with a buttery consistency for easy blending. Their heavy viscosity allows for thick, oil-like painting, retaining peaks and brush marks. They dry to a satin-matte finish, eliminating surface glare.
Basics can be used for a variety of techniques from watercolor, airbrush, and printmaking, to thick applications that simulate oil paint. When dry, these acrylic paints are permanent, water-resistant, and flexible.
