Not if you are looking for a non-toxic paint with exceptional longevity, a fine grain, or a low viscosity that has many applications. Liquitex paints, especially in aerosol formulation, do take a long time to dry (up to 12 weeks in some applications). Liquitex spray paints will not last if left wet for very long periods of time or if they are exposed to excessive heat/sun, or they get wet. Liquitex paints can also be difficult to clean if left near the surface of the substrate with any kind of abrasive (water soluble or otherwise).
Do liquitex paint formulas require a specific formulation (for example, the formula is not known with great accuracy)?
Not necessarily. Many different types of powders offer superior viscosity to other paints offered. Many of our customers have had good success using Liquitex paint formulated for other paints as well as commercially formulated ones. Liquitex paints formulated for other powders are also capable of being used as the base for many specialty paints.
Can liquitex paint be formulated with other solvents than water?
Yes, though these require a special formulation as well. Liquid solvents are typically much softer than the water based counterparts used in spray paint production. In other words, when used with liquid solvents, painting results on the substrate can be significantly modified. This is not a problem in most cases, though some artists do find that mixing liquitex with liquids that does not require a special formulation creates a paint more suitable to their painting style. Liquid based inks are not usually suitable as the base coat for water based spray paints.
My artist has a specialty paint application, but he or she would like water based paint. Should I use a water based spray paint?
It is often a wise decision to consider mixing a water based spray paint with an acrylic paint or other paint formulated to give a specific coating to an art surface. Not all water based spray paints are suitable for all art applications. Water based spray paints, such as H&M, have superior cleaning capacities and a higher tolerance to acids and water. However, when water and water based inks are used simultaneously on the substrate, water based paint can easily and significantly reduce water flow on the substrate. Additionally, the ability to quickly and effectively clean water based paint paints is one drawback to them. Water based paint can be much more expensive than water based spray paints. For this reason, it is
