Putty-like and easy to use, Modeling Paste is perfect for acrylic applications where creating different thicknesses of texture is desired. Liquitex formulated Modeling Paste to help build heavy textures on rigid supports and create three-dimensional forms. It adheres to any non-oily, absorbent surface. This paste is composed of marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion and dries to the hardness of stone where it can even be sanded or carved.
Modeling Paste can be handled like clay if the container top is removed and some of the water is allowed to slowly evaporate until it reaches a clay-like consistency. Cosmetic cracking may occur if the clay-like paste dries too quickly. Mix color into the wet paste or paint on top of dried textures for unique effects.
Light Modeling Paste is especially light and malleable, while still holding shape and texture well. It is often used with Liquitex texture gels and will not crack. It is the Modeling Paste to use when weight is a factor and a heavier medium could have an adverse effect on the painting surface.
