Liquitex Modelling Paste is an extra-heavy body paste used to build heavy textures on rigid supports, and to create three-dimensional forms such as sculptures and bas-reliefs. It is made from marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion.
This Liquitex Modelling Paste is an excellent opaque substrate for acrylic paint, oil paint, oil pastel, oil bars, watercolour, graphite or dry pastel. It can be mixed with acrylic colours to create a coloured paste, and adheres to any non-oily absorbent surface. Liquitex Modelling Paste can be applied with knife, brush etc. in layers less than 1/4" thick. To prevent shrinkage cracks dry it slowly by covering loosely with plastic wrap. It dries as hard as stone and can be sanded, carved and painted with acrylic or oil colours once thoroughly dry. To increase flexibility Liquitex Modelling Paste can be mixed with up to 50% gel medium.
Liquitex Modelling Paste can be handled like clay if you so wish. Simply remove the top of the container and allow some of the water to evaporate slowly until it reaches a clay-like consistency. Liquitex Modelling Paste is available in various pot sizes.
