Not your average acrylic paint. Heavy texture acrylics possess a super thick viscosity and buttery texture that’s suited for palette knife and sculptural techniques. Its consistency is smooth yet has the right amount of resistance to hold stiff peaks, glide effortlessly across painting surfaces, and paint 1-6 inches in thickness.
Heavy texture acrylics are made in small batches in Justin Gaffrey’s paint studio in Northwest Florida. Justin has been pushing the boundaries with acrylic paints for over twenty years making artwork that is highly textured and three-dimensional. Justin has been making his paints from scratch for over twenty years and now his labor of love for his paintings will be felt when you start using our paints. Our acrylics are made with pure acrylic resin, high-quality pigments sourced from around the world and we modified the paint’s rheology to its uttermost limit. What’s unique about our paint products is they don’t require a mixing medium to make them thick, unlike other art companies that require a ton of different mediums to achieve a highly textured painting.
Gaffrey and his family designed these paints with artist’s needs in mind. Art is for everyone and we believe the cost of art materials shouldn’t get in the way of your creative vision. These are not student grade or poor quality paints. Our heavy texture acrylics are saturated with pigment. There is no cracking or brittleness when your painting dries. Heavy texture acrylics allows you to express yourself in a physical way that is an exciting new medium entering the art world. Impasto painters will appreciate the readiness of our heavy texture acrylics and new artists will be excited by the endless possibilities you can achieve while painting.
We understand artists can be fiercely loyal to their paint brands so our heavy texture acrylics are compatible with other acrylic mediums. Although, we have you covered to set up your paint studio with our medium viscosity acrylic colors, palette knives, wood panels, artist’s brushes, paint kits, and misc art materials.
While we recommend wood panels as the primary painting surface due to its durability and sturdiness, they can be applied to just about any surface.
