  • Light Molding Paste - Over 50% lighter than GOLDEN Molding Paste. This dramatic weight reduction is beneficial in creating large artworks and thick layers of material.  It has a consistency similar to cake icing, easily manipulated by a palette knife. Wonderfully high peaks maintain their height and appearance. The spongy flexibility opens up new possibilities.
  • Light Molding Paste dries to an opaque, matte finish with good flexibility. It is designed to hold stiff peaks for highly textured surfaces and it blends easily with colors.
  • Pastes can be used to achieve a variety of effects and expressions. When used in conjunction with acrylic colors they broaden working properties and expand creative possibilities. Unlike gels, pastes are opaque because they contain Marble Dust or other fillers that create a white or clay-tone finish with a variety of textures and properties.
  • Molding Paste can also be used to create foundations for painting either to create texture over a smoother surface, or to smooth out a textured surface. The absorbent qualities of Molding Paste make it suitable as a ground for nearly every painting and drawing media.
  • Light Molding Paste's unique attributes allow an artist to use this product in new ways. It can be used simply as a lightweight filler for paints, as a white tinting medium or as a ground.
  • Use as a Low-Weight, Texturing Medium:
    For creating thick textures, Light Molding Paste is extremely useful. Large projects that normally would have great weight are easier to move and have lower shipping costs. Using a palette knife, stucco-like textures or frescoed walls are easily developed.
  • Use as a Modeling Compound:
    Dimensional objects can be covered with Light Molding Paste and sculpted while wet. After drying, the Molding Paste can be "chiseled" or carved with a razor knife, painted or further developed with additional layers of product.
  • Use as a Substrate:
    A 1/4-inch thick layer of Light Molding Paste applied to a gessoed canvas can allow an artist to manipulate while wet by using a stylus to draw into the paste. Work quickly, and continually wipe off the stylus with a damp rag. Once dry, this image can be painted or can be developed further with subsequent layers.
  • Use as a White Tinting Medium:
    The whiteness of this paste can be used to tint an acrylic paint. Add 10% color into the Light Molding Paste to start. Keep paints additions low in order to maintain low weight. Offers a different feel and look than using Titanium or Zinc Whites.
