Liquitex Basics: Quality and Economy
“Basics gives you the perfect balance of quality and economy. Made for all artists, Basics acrylics are formulated with the exacting Liquitex standard and made with the same lightfast, fine art pigments we use in our professional range, but just a lighter load.
All Liquitex paints use the highest quality pigments and go through the same rigorous manufacturing process. The only difference is that with Basics we use a lower concentration of pigment than our professional paints. Fine art pigments are selected and milled using the latest technology. Pigments are ground to give fine dispersion, great color development, strength and brightness, before being added to the acrylic emulsion.”
“As with all Liquitex paints, the pigments in the Liquitex Basics set have passed extensive tests for lightfastness. The advanced acrylic formula is highly flexible, durable, non-yellowing and UV-resistant. Your work will have the greatest archival permanence possible, withstanding color shifting or fading to stay vibrant and true.”
