Liquitex was originally called Liquid Texture/Liquitex and was the first acrylic paint made....1955 by Henry Levison.
It is an acrylic polymer resin emulsified with water.
Retains crisp brush strokes and knife marks to thin watercolor and everything in between.
Increased open time.
Goes from thick to thin and adheres to everything. Canvas, wood, plastic, paper, etc..
On the Liquitex site you will find downloadable information in "The Acrylic Book" or as a computer based information center.
With over 50 years "on the market" I would consider it a reliable product with a
good track record base.
There are many mediums available and the product itself comes in Liquitex Basic
for beginners, Full Body and Soft Body paints.
Liquitex Full and Soft bodied paints are available on line and I am able to purchase at Michaels.
