Liquitex BASICS Acrylic Colors are specially developed for students and artists that need quality at an outstanding value. To make the BASICS line as economical as possible, Liquitex uses pigments that in most cases require fewer resources so that they can be milled more quickly and efficiently.
BASICS is a heavy body acrylic paint that will retain peaks and brush strokes, as well as blend easily and smoothly. The pigments are permanent and all colors dry to a beautiful satin finish. These paints are intermixable with all Liquitex Professional Soft and Heavy Body Acrylic Colors and Mediums.
Ideal for learning color theory and color mixing, these paints hold the AP Seal from ACMI (the Art & Creative Materials Institute) and are safe for educational use. Sets of BASICS paints are perfect for beginner and experienced artists alike.
