Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics

"My choice for over 50 years" - Cisle Studio (Belfast, Maine)

Heavy Body Artist Color, previously referred to as High Viscosity, has a thick consistency for traditional art techniques using brushes or knives, as well as for experimental, mixed media, collage and printmaking applications. Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Colors are made with high pigment loads, which produce rich, brilliant, permanent color. Impasto applications retain crisp brush stroke and knife marks. Good surface drag provides excellent handling and blending characteristics with increased open-working time.

  • Flexible when dry
  • Smooth, thick, buttery consistency
  • Outstanding clarity and brilliance of color
    Perfect For:
  • Artists of every skill level

Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, body, but almost heavy After working nearly exclusively with oil paints, I decided to see "what I was missing" (anonymous quote) by purposely avoiding acrylic paints. I tried several brands of paints and surfaces before settling on Liquitex Heavy Body acrylics and 140 lb cold pressed watercolor paper (for now). I couldn't help comparing the paints to oil colors, for body, flow, hue, saturation, and dry time among other characteristics. My first attempts confirmed why I preferred oil paints - the acrylics dried way too fast, hindering working color into color and fluid brush strokes. In fact, they tacked up so quickly that it was like pulling wet tar over sand. The colors were pretty nice though even though they converted some after drying. I tried retarders and extenders with little success. After discovered one of those plastic boxes with a sponge and a wett-able liner that solved the working time problem, I am almost converted. The Liquitex acrylics now behave pretty well for me, allowing somewhat rapid working and reworking and even some over painting that is difficult with wet oil colors. They have good body and flow, but are not quite as heavy or color saturated as a rival brand that I had tried previously. But I am satisfied. They are definitely a good choice for a beginner acrylic painter like myself, and I will continue to work with them and report progress again. Here is my latest (third) effort.
