Product Overview

Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste is a matte, opaque preparation of marble dust and polymer emulsion.

  • 100% acrylic polymer and marble dust putty builds flexible form and structure.
  • It dries more slowly than other modelling pastes to a hard, yet flexible surface.
  • Dries to a very hard yet flexible opaque white matte finish, on supports that may be subject to some movement.
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or painted once dry.
  • Dries more slowly than other modeling pastes.
  • Gives minimal shrinkage.
  • Can be overpainted with acrylics, oils, watercolors, graphite or dry pastels.
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality.
  • Recommended for use on supports with occasional flexing.

How to use:

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products.
  • Apply with knife or tool.
  • Tint with acrylic color to make a colored paste.
  • Can be handled like clay - for best results remove the lid to let some of the water slowly evaporate until you get the texture you want.
  • For sculptural texture, build up in thin layers (each no more than a quarter of an inch thick), allowing each to dry.
  • Dry slowly by covering loosely with plastic wrap to avoid shrinkage cracks. If cracks appear, allow to dry and fill in with another thin layer of paste.
  • Overpaint once dry with acrylics or most other media.
  • To use as a slightly flexible ground - apply a thin layer to rigid surface with knife/trowel/roller, leave to dry, sand smooth and repeat if needed.
  • To make an absorbent ground, mix 1 part Modeling Paste to 3 parts Liquitex Gesso, apply with a trowel/roller, leave to dry, sand smooth and repeat if needed.
  • For paper-mache, soak paper in a 50/50 mix of Modeling Paste and Gloss/Matte Gel/Gloss Heavy Gel. Can be mixed with acrylic-compatible powdered pigments or aggregates
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media.
  • Drying too quickly will cause cosmetic (not structural) cracks. Use withandcolours.
