Molding Pastes are water-based products formulated with 100% acrylic polymer emulsions, which give great flexibility and durability. Drying times greatly depend upon film thickness. They dry to an opaque, semi-gloss film to which subsequent layers of acrylic paint and mediums can be applied. All Molding Pastes can be easily tinted with GOLDEN Heavy Body, Matte, High Load and Fluid Acrylic Paints.
All GOLDEN Molding Pastes clean up with soap and water. Do not let products dry on tools. Keep tools wet while in use. Soak tools in soapy water to remove dried films.
Pastes can be used to achieve a variety of effects and expressions. When used in conjunction with acrylic colors they broaden working properties and expand creative possibilities. Unlike gels, pastes are opaque because they contain Marble Dust or other fillers that create a white or clay-tone finish with a variety of textures and properties. Molding Paste can also be used to create foundations for painting either to create texture over a smoother surface, or to smooth out a textured surface. The absorbent qualities of Molding Paste make it suitable as a ground for nearly every painting and drawing media.
