Details: Liquitex Modeling Paste Gel Painting Medium is 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, and 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.

APPLICATIONS: Apply with different tools (i.e palette knife, trowel, paint brush, or cake decorating tips) to produce different effects.   To prevent shrinkage cracks (mud cracking) dry slowly by covering loosely with plastic wrap. Apply less than 1/4" thick.   Mix with acrylic colors to produce a colored tinted paste.   When dry, Liquitex Acrylic Modeling Paste may be painted with acrylic or oil colors.   SCULPTURAL: Apply in thin layers, allowing each layer to dry before applying next layer. If cracks appear, allow to dry and fill in with additional thin layer of Acrylic Modeling Paste.  

Rigid support - Use straight from container.   Flexible support - Mix Liquitex Acrylic Modeling Paste 50/50 with Gloss Gel Medium, Matte Gel Medium, Gloss Heavy Gel Medium, or Super Heavy Gel Medium.
