  • GAC 800  is a low-crazing extender for pouring acrylic colors. "Crazing" is the formation crevices in surfaces that develop as acrylic paints and mediums dry. The addition of GAC 800 promotes drying with a smooth, even film, good gloss and flexibility, but with moderate clarity. GAC 800 is also useful for adhesion to chalky surfaces.

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • Golden GAC 400

    7651,895

    GAC 400  Stiffens natural fibers and fabrics and is useful for stiffening unprimed canvas or sculpting and shaping fabric. Fibers saturated with GAC 400 will dry to a hard, stiff film.

  • Matte Medium reduces sheen when mixed with acrylic colors. It can be used together with a Gloss Medium to create a semi-gloss surface.
  • Out of stock
    Gloss Medium enhances brightness and sheen. To create a glossy finish, blend a small amount of this medium with acrylic color. Use larger amounts to achieve a transparent colored wash. If you apply Gloss Medium over top of an acrylic painting it will dry completely transparent, though it may appear hazy before it completely dries.
  • Out of stock
    When mixed with acrylic colors, Gel Medium provides a translucent effect. Being viscous, the drying rate is much slower than other acrylic mediums. When using modeling paste, blend it in a ratio of one part Gel Medium to two parts modeling paste to ensure an even texture resistant to cracking.
  • Golden OPEN Mediums help maximize working time of OPEN Acrylics and can be used to adjust color strength and translucency while maintaining consistency. OPEN Acrylic Medium will lower paint viscosity to create a more fluid mixture and increase flow.

  • Golden OPEN Thinner

    250490

    OPEN Thinner contains no binders and is used to thin paint mixes without altering open time, or to maintain and adjust workability on palettes without water mists and moisturizing palettes.

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • Satin Glazing Liquid [formerly Acrylic Glazing Liquid (Satin)] can be mixed with GOLDEN Acrylic colors to create glazes for fine art as well as interior application on walls or furniture. The slow drying formula provides sufficient working time for a wide variety of glaze and decorative finishes normally accomplished with oils. It is also excellent for soft transitions and color blending in paintings. Available in Gloss and Satin.

  • Airbrush Medium modifies GOLDEN Fluid Acrylics for spray application by reducing clog­ging and tip buildup during spraying. Recommended for spraying on garments, Airbrush Medium may also be used to thin other prod­ucts for spraying  such as Iridescent/Interference Acrylics and Gesso. NOTE: Airbrush Medium is NOT designed to mix with High Flow Acrylics (Use Airbrush Transparent Extender).

  • Golden GAC 900

    7651,895

    GAC 900  Fabric Painting Medium, when heat-set properly, offers a very soft hand and laundering stability. Mix with High Flow Acrylics to produce "tie-dye" effects, or blend with GOLDEN Heavy Body, Matte or Fluid Acrylics for brush or screen application.

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • GAC 500  Extends Fluid Acrylics for a unique balance of film hardness and flexibility offering increased leveling, increased mar resistance and decreased dry film tack. GAC 500 is particularly useful for extending Fluid Acrylic Colors with minimal property change. It can be mixed with Airbrush Transparent Extender for a fast-drying, sprayable isolation coat.

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • Golden GAC 100

    7301,240

    GAC 100  Multi-Purpose Acrylic Polymer is a sealer that helps prevent Support Induced Discoloration (SID) caused by impurities that are drawn up through a substrate as the acrylic paint dries. GAC 100 is also useful for diluting and extending colors, increasing flexibility and film integrity, sizing for fabric and sealing for wood. GAC 100 will wet out solids, including pigments, more readily than other polymers and is useful for artists formulating their own paints.

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • Golden Retarder

    515825

    Retarder is an additive used to increase the open (drying) time of acrylic paints. Useful for wet in wet techniques and reducing skinning on the palette.

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • Wetting Agent [formerly Acrylic Flow Release] is a concentrated additive used to reduce surface tension of the water in the acrylic emulsion, thereby increasing the slickness and flow of the paint. It is effective for achieving rich stains on a porous surface. As with OPEN Thinner and Retarder, Wetting Agent contains no binder and should only be used properly diluted per product instructions. Not for use by children. Eye Irritant. Inhalation of Spray Mist Harmful. DO NOT SPRAY APPLY

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • Golden Matte Medium

    7301,240

    Matte Medium is a pourable medium useful for extending color, decreasing gloss and increasing film integrity. It is also used as a nearly clear ground on canvas instead of gesso.

    Note: Packaging design may vary.
  • Golden Gloss Medium

    7651,300

    Gloss Medium is an acrylic liquid medium useful for creating glazes, extending colors, enhancing gloss and translucency and increasing film integrity. It has an oil-like feel and resinous nature that promotes flow and leveling.
