175Re: Liquitex acrylic (was alum)
- Mar 26, 2000This is not a question about alum, but since Liquitex acrylic was
mentioned, I wonder who has experience using Liquitex acrylics with
regards to paper marbling. I tried to use Liquitex for marbling but
the colors seem to end up being pale. I use Liqutex that comes in jar
form (medium viscocity).
I suspect I did not shake the bottle well enough. Should I open the
jar top and throughly stir the acrylic (so that the binder and
pigment are throughly mixed) or shake the bottle longer? Or maybe the
pale color came from adding too much water and Liquitex flow-aid.
Maybe should I abandon Liquitex altogether and try other arcylic or
fabric paint such as Setasilk etc. Anyone has experience using
Setasilk by Phoebe or Maruba fabric paint.
