Liquitex Cadmium Free paint is a non-hazardous cadmium-free range that performs on par to genuine cadmium paints. The paint qualifies for the AP seal certified by ACMI as non-hazardous and safe to use. This Professional Heavy Body Acrylic paint features a buttery, thick consistency that, when dry, retains the peaks and textures you create with your brush or painting knife. Ideal for artists who enjoy impasto techniques and experimenting with dimension. The colors are not intended to be a mixing palette but rather a tonal palette.
