Description

Liquitex Modeling Paste

Liquitex Modeling Paste is used to build heavy textures and create three-dimensional forms. Acrylic colours can be mixed into the Modelling Paste to produce a tinted paste. Either acrylic or oil can be painted over the Modelling Paste when dry. If it dries too quickly, it will develop shrinkage cracks. Dry slowly by covering loosely with plastic. Can be sanded or carved when dry. It dries to stone hardness and reaches maximum strength in two to three weeks. Apply to rigid supports only.

A marble paste made of marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion. Used to build heavy textures on rigid supports and create three-dimensional forms. Dries to the hardness of stone. It can be sanded or carved when thoroughly dry. Can be handled like clay if the top of the container is removed and some of the water is allowed to slowly evaporate until it reaches a clay-like consistency.

What it does

  • 100% acrylic polymer and marble dust putty builds form and structure
  • Dries to a very hard ‘stone-like’ opaque white matte finish that you can sand, drill or carve
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or painted once dry
  • Gives minimal shrinkage
  • 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 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
  • If cracks appear, allow to dry and fill in with another thin layer of paste
  • Ensure paste is completely dry before sanding, carving or drilling into
  • 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
