Iridescent Pearl - Heavy Texture

  • Chem. Composition: TiO2, Synthetic Mica
  • Lightfastness: N/A

What is Heavy Texture?

Heavy body acrylics claim to be thick, but they often fall flat. Gaffrey's Heavy Texture provides unmatched thickness and opacity, setting a new standard for impasto painting.

Heavy Texture is ready-made for gravity defying effects and lasting color. No mixing mediums required. Plus, it's fully compatible with 'regular' acrylics.

We’re a ragtag crew, crafting professional-grade acrylics from the ground up. Embracing a DIY ethos, we ensure our paints are accessible to all artists, supporting creativity without barriers or hefty price tags.

Professional Grade

  • 100% Acrylic emulsion
  • Water based formula
  • Conforms to ASTM D 4236
  • Lightfast quality pigments
  • Zero fillers

Transparency is key. Below are some crucial insights into how we operate and what you can expect: 

  • Restocking: We do not provide restocking timelines. Our stock levels depend on a multitude of factors, and we focus on quality over speed.
  • Production: We’re a lean team of five, with just two handling all production. We work hard to meet demand, but there are limits to what we can do. We appreciate your understanding.
  • Painting Classes: Our focus is on perfecting paints and getting orders out the door quickly, not on teaching. We're all self-taught artists here at GAM, learning through trial and error. Follow us on social media for occasional tips and tricks. We love sharing our discoveries in real time and learning from artists like you!
  • Dry Time: Our paints use a water-based formula. A thick layer of Heavy Texture will cure faster than a thin layer of oil paint. Drying times may vary, so consider using a plugin fan for quicker results.
  • Firm Pricing: Prices are set to reflect the quality and care we put into our paints. We don’t offer discounts—our goal is to keep our pricing fair and straightforward.
  • Modus Operandi: Our paints encourage bold and voluminous use. Don’t like heavy application? That’s fine, but our style celebrates abundance. Use as much or as little as you like, but we design with freedom in mind.
  • Product Consistency: Despite our best efforts to maintain consistency, batch variability is inevitable. It’s part of the charm of buying handcrafted paints.
  • Packaging: It’s what’s inside the bag that counts. Packaging aesthetics are secondary to the quality of paint we deliver. Some imperfections are to be expected.
  • Team Capacity: We started small and remain a small team. Expansions and improvements are ongoing, but expect some delays. We manage our operations with care, not haste.

4 easy steps to pipe heavy texture

1. Snip It

Cut a small piece off the bag, about 3/4 of an inch. Cut further as needed to increase flow of paint.

2. Twist it

Use dominant hand to twist the top until bag feels firm. Apply steady pressure to force air pockets outs.

3. Squeeze it

Guide the nozzle with one hand, applying pressure with the other to control paint thickness and shape.

4. Clip It

Flatten the open end and clip it for short-term storage. For long-term, transfer to airtight container.

Iridescent Peart

I started a triptych using the peart paint, but had to stop working on it because I ran out of paint. In the meantime, the paint I had applied dried. It looks fine on the service and has a nice texture, but, I wanted height to the painting and had built up about a 1/3 of an inch layer on one section of the painting. When it dried, it was about 1/8 in high, so that was kind of disappointing. I'm going to finish the painting with the extra paint I ordered, but, I was hoping for the effect of very thick planes of paint on my project.
