For painting projects that require a smooth, deep black that doesn't fade or crack, there's High Viscosity Ivory Black from Liquitex. Coming in a 7 oz. tube, this Ivory Black is a rich, dark hue that can be used "as is" or can be easily blended with other colors to create different shades. A thin coat takes between four and seven minutes to dry, but once it is fully dry the paint remains flexible to prevent cracks and chipping (which can be a problem with many other acrylics). Like all Liquitex paint products, the High Viscosity Ivory Black does not contain any egg products, wheat products, dairy, peanut oil, formaldehyde or latex.
