The modeling paste is a marble paste that is used for creating heavy textures, including 3-dimensional forms and impastos.

Liquitex Acrylic Modeling Paste is a versatile product that can be used to thin and thicken your paint, or to create 3D shapes. By adjusting the amount of fluid or gel you use, you can control the shine levels of your paint.

 What the Modeling Paste Does

The Liquitex Acrylic Modeling Paste is an airy, lightweight acrylic putty that can be used to create heavy textures and 3D forms in places where weight is a factor.

Once dried, Acrylic Modeling Paste creates a hard, white matte finish that can be used on its own or with color added in. Its lightweight clay-like consistency can be used to add body to paint and create pastel tints. Additionally, it can be painted with acrylics, oils, watercolors, graphite, or dry pastels.

Acrylic Modeling Paste maintains paint adhesion, durability, and archival quality. Use it with acrylic paints and mediums.

Suggested tips

Modeling Paste is an acrylic paste medium used to create three-dimensional effects. When dry, it forms a hard, durable surface. It is not recommended for use with any non-acrylic compatible media, as it will cause cosmetic cracks. Modeling Paste must be mixed with another medium to be used on flexible supports.
