PURE PIGMENTS Heavy Body Acrylic is known for its rich, permanent color. Our chemists use the latest basket beadmill technology to bring out the best in every pigment. Tiny reinforced ceramic beads give fine dispersion, great color development, strength and brightness.
HIGH VISCOSITY This is our highest viscosity paint. Good surface drag gives excellent handling and blending characteristics, with increased openworking time. Never too slippery, or too sticky. Heavy Body Acrylic delivers intense color in the ideal consistency for a range of techniques.
VERSATILE The lowodor acrylic resin base in Heavy Body represents the latest in acrylic resin technology, giving you increased open time and colors of great clarity and vibrancy, with minimal wettodry shift. The paint film is highly flexible, durable, nonyellowing, UVresistant and waterresistant when dry.
NONCRACKING A flexible, crackfree result. Even when you go in thick. Impasto and 3D applications dry without fracturing due to advanced acrylic technology which brings flexibility to the paint film. Giving you a durable, noncracking finish.
ARCHIVAL QUALITY On a client’s wall. In a gallery. Your work needs to stay as you intended. The pigments in Heavy Body are lightfast. This means your work will have the greatest archival permanence possible – at least 50 years+ in gallery conditions – with no color shifting or fading, to stay vibrant and true.
Heavy Body Artist Color, previously referred to as High Viscosity, has a thick consistency for traditional art techniques using brushes or knives, as well as for experimental, mixed media, collage, and print making applications. The high pigment load produces rich, brilliant, permanent color. This package contains (1) 2 ounce tube of Heavy Body Acrylic Color. Conforms to ASTM D4236 and D5098.
