Liquitex Basics is developed for students and artists needing quality at outstanding value. Each colour is uniquely formulated to bring out the maximum brilliance and clarity of the individual pigment. It is a heavy body acrylic that retains peaks and brush strokes and contains permanent artist pigments. All colours dry to a satin finish and are intermixable with Liquitex professional acrylics and mediums. All colours also hold the AP Seal from ACMI and are safe for educational use.
