Golden Light Molding Paste - Size: 8 oz
SKU: GAC03575-8
Golden Light Molding Paste - Size 8 oz

Originally developed as a custom product for an artist whose large, abstract paintings were literally ripping the canvas from its stretcher bars. Mixtures made with this lightweight material allow an artist to work larger with less overall weight.

This product has a white, low-density filler that replaces the traditional marble dust. Aside from being much whiter in color than the other molding pastes, Light Molding Paste is approximately 67% lighter by weight! It has a consistency similar to cake icing, easily manipulated by a palette knife. Wonderfully high peaks maintain their height and appearance. The spongy flexibility opens up new possibilities.

Light Molding Paste's unique attributes allow an artist to use this product in new ways. It can be used simply as a lightweight filler for paints, as a white tinting medium or as a ground.

Use as a Low-Weight, Texturing Medium
For creating thick textures, Light Molding Paste is extremely useful. Large projects that normally would have great weight are easier to move and have lower shipping costs. Using a palette knife, stucco-like textures or frescoed walls are easily developed.

Use as a Modeling Compound
Dimensional objects can be covered with Light Molding Paste and sculpted while wet. After drying, the Molding Paste can be "chiseled" or carved with a razor knife, painted or further developed with additional layers of product.

Use as a Substrate
A 1/4-inch thick layer of Light Molding Paste applied to a gessoed canvas can allow an artist to manipulate while wet by using a stylus to draw into the paste. Work quickly, and continually wipe off the stylus with a damp rag. Once dry, this image can be painted or can be developed further with subsequent layers.

Use as a White Tinting Medium
The whiteness of this paste can be used to tint an acrylic paint. Add 10% color into the Light Molding Paste to start. Keep paints additions low in order to maintain low weight. Offers a different feel and look than using Titanium or Zinc Whites.
