Golden Open Acrylic

Manufacturer: Golden Artist Colours

Golden OPEN Acrylics are a truely unique acrylic paint that dry slowly with a slightly softer consistency than Golden Heavy Body paints. The increased working time of these colours expands their range to include more traditional techniques once only possible with oils. Thick applications can dry extremely slowly, so we recommend artists only use OPEN Colours thinly (1 mm). Drying time can also be accelerated by mixing OPEN with faster-drying acrylics like Fluid and Heavy Body colours. The slow-drying capability of OPEN Acrylics also makes the suitable for some printmaking techniques.Painters who cover their palettes or use sealed containers have been able to use the same colours for weeks, reducing the amount of paint wasted and preserving colour mixtures for future use.

  • Expands the boundaries of acrylics
  • Stays wet longer
  • Allowing artists to explore a wider range of techniques
  • Resists skinning, remain wet on the palette for extended periods
  • Ideal for Portraiture, landscape, Plein air, monoprinting and screenprinting

Golden Open Acrylic paints.
I now have a couple of colours in the open range, they are very good when you have a lot of blending to do as they stay wet for a long time can be mixed with other paints and mediums. Good colour range

Golden Open
These are acrylics are great.   From the pigments used to the slow drying, blending is easy and reliable.  Even when I had an issue with a couple of caps the company was quick to replace them.  Been using these paints for several years, and have loved them from the day we met.
