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.

Create your own acrylic skins: Learning to Blend with Liquitex Soft Body:

For smooth puddles and pools of color, graphic stripes, otherworldly effects and wet-look drips, you'll want to try pouring. To get a strong, flawless body of paint, use our Professional Pouring Medium with Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic colors. Here’s your guide:

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix one heaped tablespoon of Soft Body Acrylic with one cup of Liquitex Pouring Medium in a large bucket or bowl
  • Use a palette knife to gently and smoothly mix the color and medium - blend gently to avoid making bubbles and let it sit for 10 minutes for any to disappear
  • Using a funnel, take the mixture and pour it into a squeeze bottle or the applicator of your choice - pitchers or tubes can be used for a variety of effects
  • If you're mixing a custom color, do it before adding to the medium, to ensure color uniformity in the pour
  • Place your surface on a level work table and pour the mixture directly onto it in the style of your choice
  • Always work with a level surface to avoid uneven results and surface tearing
  • If your space is prone to dust, cover your work with a big cardboard box or similar, to stop airborne particles settling on the surface and damaging the perfect, super glossy finish
  • Pour evenly over the surface, allowing at least one day of dry time. Two days is recommended for thicker paint films

TIPS

 
 
  • Create multicolored compositions in one session, by prepping several colors together. Apply the next color directly after the first pour to achieve sharp dots or concentric circles
  • Using a palette knife or fork, drag and blend multiple colors across the surface for a marbled effect
  • Turning the support on its side creates thin drips. Play with the movement so that the paint runs down the surface for free-flowing effects
  • Apply additional coats over set layering for interesting color build-up effects
  • For sculptural applications, create an acrylic skin by pouring onto a glass surface - treat the surface with a mold release or quick release spray for easy removal when dry. Peel off carefully when fully dry; then sew, glue, hang or roll for different sculptural effects
  • Do not mix water into Pouring Medium as you will weaken the acrylic strength
