Use with

  • Acrylic paints & mediums

Use on

  • All acrylic-friendly surfaces


  • Textile painting
  • Textile stenciling, stamping & printing
  • Watercolour textile effects
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • For best results mix in a 1:1 ratio with Soft Body Acrylic, add more if using Heavy Body to get your desired consistency
  • For watercolour effects use 5 parts medium to 1 part Soft Body
  • Stir gently to avoid creating foam - if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear
  • Paint on with brush, roller etc, using a thin layer to avoid cracking
  • Can be added directly to textile when paint is still wet to blend colour
  • No need to iron to set

How not to use it

  • Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
  • The thicker you apply it, the less flexible it becomes
