  • Start by adding a very small amount of Liquithick to paint or medium and mix well with a palette knife. The proper proportion will vary with color and desired effect.
  • Proportions of 20 or 25 parts color to 1 part Liquithick will change the handling characteristics.
  • Continue adding Liquithick slowly until the desired viscosity is achieved.
  • Add only enough for desired effect and do not exceed 1 to 4 ratio as excessive shrinkage and cracking may occur.

  • Excellent stuff

    If you like to work with thick gutsy paint then this is the gel for you. You only need a little (about a pea size amount to a table full of paint) to thicken up you paint. A good tip is to mix it together quickly. I use Liquithick with W&N artists acrylics and it work a treat. I contacted "ColArt" who own both W&N and Liquitex and they confirm that it is archively safe to use these products together. Paul Milner (Hull, United Kingdom) on 19 Jun 2012
