Liquitex

Since developing the first waterbased artist acrylic products in 1955, Liquitex has always been concerned with the needs of the professional artist. All Liquitex products are formulated by a unique team of chemists and artists — chemists with a wide array of skills in resin technologies, and artists who help the company stay focused on the working properties. This combination allows Liquitex to create the most versatile ranges of intense, highly loaded, permanent colors possible.
