We're learning as we go and you're witnessing us develop exciting acrylic paints nobody has seen before in real-time. In order for us to test new Heavy Texture formulas, we have to make them larger scale (approximately 50 gallons at a time) for the formula to be super thick and ultra-smooth. Since these Heavy Texture acrylics have never been made before, there was no machinery or procedure to make paint like this in existence. We've clocked in thousands of hours engineering, experimenting, and perfecting the acrylic paint-making process. We did it! Not bad for a couple of self-taught artists with no college degrees. 

Raw Umber Heavy Texture is lighter wet and dries dark. Plan ahead for this effect. We'll be following up in the coming weeks with a fun and easy survey that will inform the final formula.

How long does it take to dry?

Dry times are based on the amount of paint used, temperatures, and humidity levels. You will notice the paint film forming after 30-60 minutes and the paint will be tacky to the touch. Once the paint film is set, the paint will take several days to a week to fully dry. Lower temperature and higher humidity levels will extend the dry time. Constant airflow from a fan will speed up the drying process, as will access to the underside of the canvas or board.

Does your paint crack?

On its own will not crack. Our formula is designed to be flexible and durable once dry. Certain factors may cause the paint to crack; such as diluting with water, mixing paints or mediums from other brands, applying the texture to uneven surfaces or canvas, adding too much medium viscosity colors, and extreme temperatures.

Do I need to varnish over the texture areas?

Varnish is optional. Our acrylics are archival quality and adding a varnish is up to the artist's preference. We currently do not offer varnishes so exercise caution when using from other brands. We are not responsible for the effects a varnish may have on your artwork if it causes unwanted effects.

What does the paint look like once dry?

Our heavy texture acrylics have a glossy finish that looks the same wet to dry in most cases. All acrylic paints will dry slightly darker due to the milky color of acrylic emulsion when wet. Shrinkage will occur once the water content evaporates from the paint. These effects are normal and hardly noticeable.

What surfaces can I paint on?

Wood panels are preffered due to their rigidity. This keeps your artwork's integrity intact.

Acrylics will adhere to most surfaces. With our paints, if it sticks, it fits.

How to use

Step 1

Hold the bag horizontally and simply snip off the end. We recommend cutting at least half an inch for general purpose.

Step 2

At a slight angle, twist the back-end and apply some pressure. The bag will be taught and plump.

Step 3

Use your hand to guide the flow of paint at the opening and use your dominant hand to squeeze with ample pressure.

Step 4

Cover the bottom of a palette knife with one of our Mid-Viscosity acrylic colors. Lightly glaze the knife over the Heavy Texture for a variegated effect or mix thoroughly for an opaque color

Step 5

Pinch the opening of the piping bag to remove a little bit of paint. Secure the bag with one of our gaffrey bag clips to store for later use.

That's it! Get to paintin'

Game changer!

Thank you Gaffrey family for creating and selling this amazing paint! It has taken my art to a whole new level. I’m obsessed!

Sandra Griffith
Raw umber

Color, texture and glossy is beautiful. I enjoy working with the heavy texture bringing a wonderful painting.

Tracy B
Raw Umber

This has been a perfect color for accenting Fall decor pieces I’ve created. It’s especially good for pumpkin stems and unique piped spikes and dots. I enjoy this color because it’s very different from the rest of the Gaffrey paints.

Lina Cooke
Chocolate Pudding

Raw umber is definitely a staple in my art studio. This colour is so rich, creamy and versatile. It looks just like chocolate pudding. It’s perfect for my pies, donuts and ice cream art.
