Golden Heavy Body Acrylics are known for their exceptionally smooth, thick buttery consistency. These 100% acrylic colors are offered in a large assortment of unique pure pigments. There are no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners or dyes added. They render excellent permanency and lightfastness. Each color is formulated differently depending on the nature of the pigment. Colors that tolerate higher pigment loads dry to a more opaque, matte finish. Colors that are more reactive and do not accept high pigment loading dry to a glossy finish and tend to be more transparent.
Golden has always concentrated its efforts within the niche for the professional artist. Meeting the demands of professionals has encouraged them to pursue the highest standard of quality for all their products. Heavy Body Acrylics was the first line of products produced by Golden in 1980. These paints have the ability to "stand up" and retain brush strokes on the canvas.
