Liquitex Professional Flexible Modeling Paste 16oz

In stock




  • 100% acrylic polymer and marble dust putty builds flexible form and structure dries to a very hard yet flexible opaque white matte finish, on supports that may be subject to some movement, can be used on its own, mixed with color or painted once dry, dries more slowly than other modelling pastes that gives minimal shrinkage, can be overpainted with acrylics, oils, watercolors, graphite or dry pastels, and maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality.
  • Apply with paint knife or tool
  • Tint with acrylic color to make a colored paste
  • Can be handled like clay - for best results remove the lid to let some of the water slowly evaporate until you get the texture you want
  • For sculptural texture, build up in thin layers (each no more than a quarter of an inch thick), allowing each to dry
  • Dry slowly by covering loosely with plastic wrap to avoid shrinkage cracks
  • If cracks appear, allow to dry and fill in with another thin layer of paste
  • Overpaint once dry with acrylics or most other media
  • To use as a slightly flexible ground - apply a thin layer to rigid surface with knife/trowel/roller, leave to dry, sand smooth and repeat if needed
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media. Drying too quickly will cause cosmetic (not structural) cracks.
  • The Cincinnati, Ohio based company Permanent Pigments created Liquitex, the first water-based acrylic paint for artists in 1955.  The name Liquitex stands for "Liquid texture."  The Liquitex brand has been at the forefront of paint ever since, leading the industry with a number of firsts, Gloss and Matte Meduims, Hue colours in place of more expensive pigments, iridescent acrylics and many more.
