Professional Acrylic Modelling Paste

Acrylic Modelling Paste is a lightweight thickening medium that, when added to acrylic, increases the body of the paint. It can be used to make a hardening coloured paste that you can apply with a palette knife or brush to a board or canvas. Because it is lightweight, you can use it on a canvas without having to worry about buckling. You can also paint it directly onto a surface and then carve it with a blade, sand it and paint over it. Whether mixed into or used under your paint, Acrylic Modelling Paste is a useful addition your acrylic paintings.
