OPEN Acrylics are a slow-drying paint 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 our Fluid and Heavy Body colours. The slow-drying capability of OPEN Acrylics also makes the suitable for some printmaking techniques.
The Golden OPEN Acrylics - Modern Colour Set contains 6 x 22ml tubes in the following colours: Hansa Yellow Opaque, Pyrrole Red, Quinacridone Magenta, Phthalo Blue (GS), Phthalo Green (BS) and Titanium White, making it an ideal introductory set.
Golden Acrylics are one of the leading manufacturers are artist grade acrylics, only using the purist pigments and with all colours having a high pigment load.
