Small Batch Acrylics
“Embed thought in material.” — Roberta Smith.
So much is lost in mass manufacturing. Through constant experimentation and rigorous testing, we strive to make acrylic paints at the highest quality. Our color choices are informed by our collective experience as career artists.
As a self-taught artist, his work challenges the norms of art, pushing boundaries is usually the only way he will be satisfied. His work is constantly changing like a moving target, making it hard to pinpoint any particular genre or theme of art. Let alone, transform his paint studio into a mini paint factory. Justin is driven by his relationship to the highly sensory elements of material.
Our mission is to make art and materials accessible for everyone. We believe artists shouldn't have to sacrifice their vision due to cost. Our art materials meet the demands of the modern painter by cutting out the middleman and shipping our products directly to you.
This product is phenomenal. It is so smooth and dried a lot faster than I thought it would. I use it to pipe flowers with petal tips and piping bags. It holds its peaks so beautifully. I’ve never worked with a heavy body acrylic like it. So impressed.
I love everything that Y’all make. I have been working with textured paint for years and making my own. I cannot express my gratitude enough that fellow artists have created a company and are able to keep the cost of materials affordable with the best quality. Pigmentation is perfection!
I have yet to use it but one time..how to seal tubes?
This color is so intense and the texture is very smooth and easy to mix. I love that I can get a deep intense color or a light bright hue.
I absolutely love this paint. I have been searching everywhere for the perfect thick acrylic paint and I think this may be the one for me!
Recently received my essential spade ♠️ palette knife. Love the feel of this knife! It has just the right amount of spring to it! I love using this knife with all my Justin Gaffrey heavy texture products. Gaffrey heavy texture paints are the best on the market for impasto painting! I’m a addicted to this heavy texture paint and the beautiful highly pigmented medium textured paints by Gaffrey. I’m a forever loyal customer!
I have been an abstract artist for 20 years and Gaffery Art Materials has one of the most innovative heavy body acrylics on the market.
I highly recommend all of the Heavy Body Acrylics as very economical and produce excellent texture art sculptures.
This paint is so much fun to work with! It's very smooth, and holds it's firmness well, even when mixing with other acrylic paints. It dries quickly, doesn't shrink or peel, and has a nice shiny finish to it. I really love using the bag it comes in to pipe onto my paintings. I like the control it gives me. I've already bought two tubes, and will need another soon. Very happy!
Pyrrole red heavy texture paint
LOVE the smooth buttery texture of this paint! I especially like how the paint holds its texture and the glossy shiny finish when dry! Other heavy body paints don’t even begin to compare to this paint. The price and quality of this art material can not be matched! I’m hooked!!!
I paint with palette knives & heavy body acrylics & have tried so many different types to get the effect I desire...they do it up here! Really enjoy this paint!
Love the texture acrylic paints very good for my abstract arts . Will be ordering more very soon.
I love everything about the paint: the people who make it, how fast it ships and arrives, how wonderful it is to use. I often use pounds at a time for my paintings and I never worry about closing up the piping back, I just pull the dry paint off the tip next time I’m ready to use it. I’ve used every thickening medium imaginable and none of them compare to the puffy, shiny goodness I get from all Gaffrey’s heavy texture acrylics. They’re perfect for my flower sculpting. They dry super sturdy, too. I don’t know where I’d be without them.
The kit was amazing, and has more than enough material to do the project. It was easy to follow and made a really beautiful painting! I’m now looking at doing a bigger project with the material as I learned so much about handling the paint during this.
I made a picture of a textured cocktail dress on a 3D canvas. I absolutely love this paint. I will purchase some more very soon.
I do not like the bags for painting, they are cumbersome and unwieldy. I like the paint, however, I don't know that I'll buy anymore though because of the bags it comes in.
