What is the difference between heavy body and regular acrylic paints? I've been working with fluid or soft body acrylics, so I think I understand what they are, but I'm not sure if there is a difference between heavy body and regular acrylics.

heavy body refers to the consistency of the acrylics. look at this video - even tho it shows how to thin heavy body you see it right at the beginning how heavy body acrylic behave.
