Liquitex BASICS Acrylic Paint is developed for students and artists that need quality at an outstanding value. Each colour is uniquely formulated to bring out the maximum brilliance and clarity of the individual pigment. Basics Acrylic Paint is a heavy body acrylic with a 'buttery' consistency for easy blending. It contains permanent artist pigments and it retains peaks and brush strokes. It is ideal for learning colour theory and colour mixing and is intermixable with all Liquitex Professional Acrylic Colors and Mediums. All colours hold the AP Seal from ACMI and are safe for educational use.
