Liquitex Acrylic Paint

Liquitex Acrylic Paint


(♪♪♪) Liquitex Acrylic Colours come
in four distinct consistencies that I’ve got here
in front of me. First one is ink. A lot of times
inks are dye-based, and they can
fade over time. This is pigment-based so it’s a really fluid
acrylic formulation, and it’s got
a squeeze bottle here, and a dropper. You can squeeze that
right onto the surface and you can see
how very fluid that is, if I actually tilt
my panel up here you can see
that just starts to move, it’s that fluid. Great for doing things
like airbrush, calligraphy,
dip pen, stamping, stuff like that. Got a lot of really
good fluid coverage, so if I want to do things that
are very graphic in nature, it’ll provide me with a good
flat broad area of colour. And moving up from
that in consistency, and it’s important to say here
as we’re talking about this, same pigments in here. All acrylic emulsion in here,
just formulated to have different thicknesses,
different viscosity, so all of these
can be intermixed. I can mix
different colours. If I want to mix ink
with soft body, I can do that, heavy body,
super heavy body, I can do that, and they can also be
intermixed with all the different mediums that Liquitex
has to offer, so that’s
important to note. Now with the soft body,
it’s the one that comes in two different
packages actually. It comes in a tube form
that I have over here, it also comes in
a little bottle right here and — make sure that I have
that shaken up a little bit– and I can squeeze that
right onto the surface of the bottle right there, and you’ll notice
that’s thicker, but I can really
spread that out and it’s great for
a lot of coverage. One of the things that people
like to use this a lot for is for murals,
it can cover so well and it’ll retain
little to no brush strokes, so you know,
I’m moving this around, I’ve got a lot on
the brush actually and I’ll wipe a little bit of
that off right now. But you can see
in the middle here, a little bit of brush strokes
but not a lot. Now that varies and differs
from the next one which is the heavy body, and heavy body,
when I squeeze that out, you can see automatically the
consistency change with that. Now this is going to
hold more brush strokes, so a little bit more
expressive in nature maybe, you want more of those
impasto brush strokes, you can see as
I just drag the brush back and forth through that how different
that is to the ink and then to the soft body. (♪♪♪) Captioned by GigEcast
