Heavy Body Artist Acrylic Paint, previously referred to as High Viscosity, has a thick consistency for traditional art techniques using brushes or knives, as well as for experimental, mixed media, collage and printmaking applications. Impasto applications retain crisp brush stroke and knife marks. Good surface drag provides excellent handling and blending characteristics with increased open-working time. High pigment load produces rich, brilliant, permanent colour.

Review by Ade Turner
I'd never used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylics before, and so was keen to compare their Cobalt Blue Hue with W&N's pukka Cobalt Blue Artist's acrylic.The viscosity of both seems very similar as does their open time, and I've comfortably worked with both makes for around 30 minutes in a warmish room.One of the reasons I'd been using W&N is their lack of colour shift from wet to dry. I was pleasantly surprised to find Liquitex give them a good run for their money. To my eyes any colour/tonal shift was minimal.So how does Liquitex's 'hue' compare up to W&N's real thing? Extremely well. It was maybe very slightly warmer and a tad darker, but really very little in it. Given that this 'hue' version is substantially cheaper, a difference so slight is forgivable. Finally, the plastic tube makes dispensing the paint very easy - a small point maybe, but very welcome.Verdict? I'm a convert, and after comparable experiences over the past two months with other colours in their range I'm inclined to switch Liquitex. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
