Soft Body Artist Colour, previously referred to as Medium Viscosity, was the original Liquitex acrylic formulation first made in 1956. The creamy smooth, pre-filtered consistency ensures good coverage, even-leveling and superb results in a variety of applications and techniques.
SOFT BODY TUBES ARE NOW DISCONTINUED. A NEW EXTENDED RANGE OF 100 COLOURS IS NOW AVAILABLE IN 59ML BOTLES HERE
• Extremely versatile formulation for most fine art and decorative art techniques
• Retains little or no brush marks
• Ideal for flat, large area coverage and fine line detail
Very smooth texture - I love using these but, I really miss the pots they used previously. Because this is very smooth you must take care how you squeeze the tube out, it will run away with you. I hate dumping paint I didn't use. Steve Urwin (Milton Keynes, United Kingdom) on 25 May 2012
I love this paint but is difficult to work with from the tube. The pots with the wee hole for squeezing out measured amounts was ideal.
Oh and where are all the fab colours in this range. I particularly liked Wisteria, Midnight Blue and Bright Aqua Green. Deborah Phillips (Dundee, United Kingdom) on 11 Sep 2012
I am also bemused by the change in the colour range! It is a bit of a disaster for me and any other artists who are planning to publish artwork based on a specific colour palette only to discover that those colours are either no longer available or have changed name and perhaps even formula! Naturally we cannot rely on the colour representation on this excellent website and so rely on the consistent colour identification - what do we do? Do we buy one or two alternative colours in the hope that one matches or is in fact the colour we need but now known by a different name? Liquitex - when you decide to up-date your ranges, please at least provide a key to lead us to the 'old' colour or state before-hand that the colour will soon no longer be available. A part from this grumble I am a tremendous fan of the products which is why I'm taking the trouble to grumble! Many thanks Deborah Mccahon (East Cosham, United Kingdom) on 24 Oct 2013
