OPEN Acrylics are a slow-drying paint with a slightly softer consistency than our Heavy Body paints. The increased working time of these colors 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 Colors thinly (< 1 mm). Drying time can also be accelerated by mixing OPEN with faster-drying acrylics like our Fluid and Heavy Body colors. The slow-drying capability of OPEN Acrylics also makes the suitable for some printmaking techniques.

Because OPEN Acrylics dry slowly, painters who cover their palettes or use sealed containers have been able to use the same colors for weeks, reducing the amount of paint wasted and preserving color mixtures for future use.

GOLDEN Iridescent Acrylic Colors used alone or with other colors, gels and mediums, develop nonfading, nontarnishing metallic finishes. Iridescent Pearl is extremely useful for mixing with other colors for pearl-like qualities. All GOLDEN Mica Flake products offer larger particles for more textural metallic surfaces. Iridescent Stainless Steel and Micaceous Iron Oxide are made with highly reflective metallic pigments.

Description

OPEN Acrylics is a new line of colors for professional artists designed with a unique set of working properties that represent a true departure from all other acrylics on the market and that dramatically expand the range of techniques that are available to artists.

OPEN Acrylic Colors are formulated with an optimum balance of pigment load and 100% acrylic polymer dispersion to produce a paint with a uniquely relaxed set of working characteristics and a versatility that allows artists to explore a wider range of techniques such as portraiture and landscape painting that rely on softening, shading, glazing, and creating fine detail.

OPEN Acrylics remain wet on the palette for prolonged periods without skinning over and can be blended with most GOLDEN Acrylics, Mediums and Gels, with the open time of the resulting mixtures being proportionately reduced.  To maintain the maximum working time of OPEN Acrylics, use OPEN Gel, Medium and Thinner.
