This thickening gel is an archival additive specially designed for water-soluble acrylic paint and mediums. Used in small amounts, Liquithick produces handling characteristics very close to that of oil or encaustic paint. At higher concentrations, it will thicken paint or mediums to cake-like or sculptural consistencies.
Liquithick will not increase transparency and creates a matte surface sheen upon drying. Drying time is extended to be between 24 hours and 7 days depending on the amount of gel added to the paint or medium. Add Liquithick slowly to color in very small amounts, it's a strong additive, with a palette knife in order to achieve the desired effect. Too uneven a ratio can cause paint shrinkage and cracking.
