The magic of Liquitex Basics acrylic paints

Thick and creamy, with a satin finish… Liquitex Basics Acrylic paints can be used for so many techniques!
Finger painting, watercolour, airbrushing, and printmaking… You can even apply it in thick layers just like oil paint.
When dry, they are permanent, water-resistant, and flexible.

If you love finger painting in your art journal or on canvas, this is a great acrylic paint for mixed media!
It is easy to work with, straight from the tube and dries to a matte finish.
And best of all, all the colours in the range are simply vibrant and delicious (and how gorgeous are the metallics??? Love!)…

Each tube contains 118ml of quality acrylic paint!

Mimi’s notes:
If you have been following me for a while, you will know how much I love my Liquitex heavy body acrylic paints – they may have appeared in a tutorial or two!!
For me, the consistency of the paint is ideal (not too liquid, not too thick) and perfect to squeeze onto my fingers (for finger painting), straight out of the tube.
I also love how they remain a little transparent when applied in thin layers or can be opaque in thick layers.
These lovely Liquitex Basics paints are hard to find in Australia and expensive in other shops.
But, I have made a special effort to bring them to you (and at a lower price than any where else) as I know how good they are.
Give them a chance as I am confident all of you mixed media artists will love them 🙂
