New Liquitex acrylics packaging for the Soft Body Acrylics offers a new range of bottle options: 2 ounce, 8 ounce, or 32 ounce. The bottles are stackable, squeezable, and come with a tapered nozzle. Black and white are also available in a huge 128 ounce bottle. The Soft Body Acrylics are a low viscosity professional acrylic paint that gives excellent surface coverage, a satin finish and high levels of artist-quality pigment for archival brilliance. It’s incredibly versatile and available in a range of 100 colors. Use it to paint, pour, glaze or print on almost any surface.
If you thought Soft Body was just a watered-down Heavy Body, you’d be wrong. This flowing low viscosity formula was in fact created first and actually gives triple the coverage area of Heavy Body. The two paints have compatible binders and pack the same high pigment load. But if you thin Heavy Body with water or mediums, you reduce concentration and get noticeably weaker colors. Paint feel, performance and stability are also impacted, so choose the right consistency of paint for the job.
I can see this new New Liquitex acrylics packaging in squeezable bottles with nozzles being so convenient for certain painting techniques. Is this a painting technique you already use? Is this something you’ll be trying out? Let me know in the comments below.
