What it does
  • 100% acrylic polymer and marble dust lightweight putty builds form and structure
  • Dries to a hard, opaque white matte finish
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or painted once dry
  • Gives minimal shrinkage
  • Can be used to add body to paint and create pastel tints
  • Can be overpainted with acrylics, oils, watercolors, graphite or dry pastels
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Use on rigid supports only
  • Apply with knife or tool
  • Tint with acrylic color to make a colored paste
  • Can be handled like a lightweight clay - for best results remove the lid to let some of the water slowly evaporate until you get the texture you want
  • For sculptural texture, build up in thin layers (each no more than a quarter of an inch thick), allowing each to dry
  • Dry slowly by covering loosely with plastic wrap to avoid shrinkage cracks
  • Overpaint once dry with acrylics or most other media
  • To use as a ground - apply a thin layer to rigid surface with knife/trowel/roller, leave to dry, sand smooth and repeat if needed
  • To make an absorbent ground, mix 1 part Modeling Paste to 3 parts Liquitex Gesso, apply with a trowel/roller, leave to dry, sand smooth and repeat if needed
  • For flexible supports, ideally use Flexible Modeling Paste but you can mix Modeling Paste 50/50 with Gloss/Matte Gel/Gloss Heavy Gel
  • For paper-mache, soak paper in a 50/50 mix of Modeling Paste and Gloss/Matte Gel/Gloss Heavy Gel
  • Can be mixed with acrylic-compatible powdered pigments or aggregates
How not to use it
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
  • Drying too quickly will cause cosmetic (not structural) cracks
  • Do not use on flexible supports unless mixed with another medium
