Liquitex Acrylics Soft Body Glossies 2-oz.

  • Product SKU: LYQ-ASBG

Quick Overview

Liquitex Glossies are waterbased acrylic enamels that are formulated for use on slick non porous materials such as glass, tile, ceramics, stoneware, china, enamelware, primed metal, wood and other non-oily surfaces. They dry to a high gloss finish and are non-toxic. While supplies last.

Colours are lightfast. They mix beautifully to achieve any hue, and dry to a glossy, enamel-like finish. Thin them with no more than 25% water.

Although Glossies contain no toxic ingredients, and conform to ASTM D 4236, they are not recommended for use on surfaces that come in direct contact with food and beverages. Finished pieces can be cleaned with soap and water and a soft cloth, but should not be cleaned with strong chemicals and abrasives.

Glossies are packaged in 2 oz (59 ml) flip-top jars, which are easily resealed to maintain the freshness of the paint.

Use this colour chart as an approximation of the real colour. If exact colour matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Liquitex Glossies are water-based acrylic enamels that are formulated for use on slick non-porous materials such as glass, tile, ceramics, stoneware, china, enamelware, primed metal, wood and other non-oily surfaces. They dry to a high gloss finish and are non-toxic.

  • All Glossies colours are intermixable and can be easily blended to achieve any colour

  • Heat-set Liquitex Glossies will soften when soaked in hot water or exposed to heat and return to proper hardness upon cooling. Allow to cool prior to rubbing, cleaning or wetting surface.
  • Hand wash in warm water with mild dishwashing detergent.
  • Do not place extremely hot pans, etc. on baked Liquitex Glossies.
  • Not recommended for shower stall tile installation. Repeated exposure to hot water adversely affects adhesion.
  • Not recommended for "heavy use" applications, such as kitchen countertops, floors, etc.
  • Do not clean Liquitex Glossies (heat set or air-dried) with scouring cleaners, as they will abrade surface.
  • Care should be taken if using grout in between heat set Liquitex Glossies tiles. Grout is abrasive and can scratch surface. A non-abrasive acrylic tile grout is recommended.
  • Do not use on flexible surfaces.
  • Do not use in food contact surface applications.
  • May be used on outside of mugs, bowls, etc. Do not paint within the top 3/4" (20mm) of drinking vessel. May be painted on underside of clear glass dishes.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers.  I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much.   I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies.  We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary.   You have made our lives so much simpler.   I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends. 

Thank you again.
I will be back.

I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

Great job!

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!

I hope I’ll be able to  broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J

Take care
