Description

Molding, or modeling paste is an acrylic medium that is filled with solid material. The result is a thick €œpasty€ white substance that can create a controlled textural surface. Molding paste is an opaque white when it dries.

  • Extra heavy body and very opaque.‚ 
  • A marble paste made of marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion.‚ 
  • Used to build heavy textures on rigid supports and create three-dimensional forms.‚ 
  • Dries to the hardness of stone. It can be sanded or carved when thoroughly dry.‚ 
  • Can be handled like clay if the top of the container is removed and some of the water is allowed to slowly evaporate until it reaches a clay-like consistency.‚ 
  • Adheres to any non-oily, absorbent surface.‚ 
  • Drying too quickly causes mud cracking that is usually cosmetic, not structural.‚ 
  • When mixed with acrylic colors will act as a weak tinting white, while increasing thickness and rigidity.‚ 
  • Excellent substrate for acrylic paint, oil paint, oil pastel, oil bars, watercolor, graphite or dry pastel.‚
