Announcement Regarding Availability of Gallon Sizes of Acrylic Glazing Liquid

January 25, 2012

GOLDEN Acrylic Glazing Liquid (AGL) was originally developed for use in Faux and Decorative Architectural applications. Its long open time was perfectly suited for sponging, glazing, subtractive techniques, marbleizing and wood-graining. Since its introduction, fine artists have also come to appreciate its slow-drying quality in their studio work. At the same time, Architectural VOC regulations have been gradually adopted by various jurisdictions (including California, Eastern Seaboard States, Great Lake Area States, and Canada), which prohibit the sale of gallon sizes of AGL for architectural uses.

While AGL is recognized as a fine art product, due to its history of marketing for use in the architectural field, we have decided the only way to ensure the product is supplied and used in compliance with the regulations is to offer it only in sizes of 32 oz. / 946 ml or less, such sizes being exempt from the architectural regulations. Gallon sizes of AGL in both gloss and satin are discontinued, effective immediately.
