Acrylic Modelling Paste

Modelling paste is used to build heavy textures and three-dimensional forms and rigid supports, either before or during any stage of the painting process. Also ideal as a ground preparation on canvas, paper or other painting surfaces. It is an opaque preparation of marble, dust and polymer emulsion. Dries slowly to a very hard surface, which can be carved and sanded.

Galeria Heavy Carvable Modelling Paste (Winsor & Newton)

 

This is the do-it-all version that is tough and fully "carvable". It remains flexible on a variety of surfaces. Modelling paste is formulated to have the least effect on colour change from wet to dry. It may also be over-painted.Colour may be added directly to modelling paste (note that colour will become lighter and more ‘chalky' and the resulting paste will have reduced body).

Galeria Flexible Modelling Paste (Winsor & Newton)

Flexible Modelling Paste is a lighter-weight modelling paste for use on canvas. It is finely textured with a soft sculptural consistency. It is also suitable for building multiple layers and dries to a matt finish. Colour may be added directly to modelling pastes (note that colour will become lighter and more 'chalky' and the resulting paste with have reduced body) or it may be over painted.

Modelling Paste (Liquitex)

A matte, opaque preparation of marble, dust and polymer emulsion. Dries slowly to a very hard surface, which can be carved and sanded. Is used to build heavy textures and three-dimensional forms and rigid supports. Add Liquitex Gel or Heavy Gel Medium for use on flexible supports. Mix with acrylic colour or paint surface with acrylic, oil, pastel or other artists' colour.

Light Modelling Paste (Liquitex)

Lightweight, airy, flexible and thick, sculptural gel specifically formulated to be used in applications where weight is a factor. Permanent, non-yellowing, rigid and water-resistant when dry.

Flexible Modelling Paste (Liquitex)

Extra Heavy Body and very opaque. Marble paste made of marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion. Dries more slowly than other modelling pastes to a hard yet flexible surface.

Used to build three-dimensional forms and heavy textures on supports that may be subject to flexing or movement.

Modelling Compound (Atelier)

Can be used for building impasto areas in a painting, either before or during any stage of the painting process. It dries to a white satin finish and remains flexible. Also ideal as a ground preparation on canvas, paper or other painting surfaces. May be added to Atelier Acrylic as an economical extender. For more textured effects, sawdust, sand, etc may be added.
