Would you guys say it's worth the price premium/size difference in the Liquitex heavy body paints over their normal paints?

I keep seeing lots of the Liquitex heavy body stuff on Ebay and it's super expensive locally (in Canada, it's like $18 a pop at Michaels, absurd!) so I was thinking of ordering a paint lot on Ebay.

Alternatively, if anyone has suggestions for a better value paint lot on Ebay/any other site, I'm all ears! I'm upgrading from my old Americana paints, haha.

Depends on if you know they will work together or not. Some acrylics wont stick to enamels and if using a thinner with enamels it can screw up your acrylics.

Would need to do some tests to see if it works or not before going all out on a paint up using both.

sorry i wasn't clear, i meant on some parts of the model can you use acrylics and on others use enamels. For instace on skin can you use acylics but on arour can you use enamels?



cheers

Sure can. As long as its the end result you wanted, go with what ever works. I just know mixing acrylics and some enamels dont work, but for different parts of the kit it will be fine.

I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

Citidel no longer makes "inks" now they have a collection of 8 "washes" that you can get either single or as a set. I was very dissappointed when I found this out. Still, I picked up a full set and I will see what they have done to them.
A lot of the time if it I have the time to sit down and focus on my piece, I will use Artist Oils for my flesh tones. I have yet to see any other methods that will give me the flexibility and workability that they will as far as blending. Down side to that is the drying time. It can take as long as a week for the paints to completely cure
