This heavy high viscosity acrylic paint has a thick consistency, ideal for many mediums including wood, leather, paper, silk and canvas. It glides on smoothly like an oil paint, but spreads easily with a brush or knife. These paints are highly-pigmented, thick and rich, making them perfect for professional art projects. There is little to no wet-to-dry color shift and when dry, they will retain clean-looking brush and knife strokes. These are incredibly durable paints meaning no cracks or chips. They are water soluble when wet but permanent, water insoluble and flexible when dry. The iridescent white offers a metallic satin finish. The iridescent paints are designed to mimic the effect of bronzing powders without the fear of tarnishing. Use this color alone or mix with other Liquitex Acrylic Colors to create a variety of metallic colors.
