Quick overview of iridescent Heavy Body Colors from Golden.

Heavy Body Acrylics - Snap Shot

The first acrylic colors offered by GOLDEN, Heavy Body paints are known for their exceptionally smooth, buttery consistency. The Heavy Body palette includes the largest assortment of unique pure pigments in a 100% acrylic emulsion available to professional artists. These colors offer excellent permanency and lightfastness. There are no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, or dyes added.

Fluid Acrylics - Snap Shot

Fluid Acrylics are highly intense, permanent acrylic colors with a consistency similar to heavy cream. Produced with only lightfast pigment, not dyes, they offer very strong colors with a fluid consistency. No fillers or extenders are added and the pigment load is comparable to GOLDEN Heavy Body Acrylics.

High Flow Colors Introduction

In July of 2013 Golden Artist Colors introduced a new line of acrylic colors to replace Airbrush Colors: HIGH FLOW. This new paint has the viscosity of ink, with the integrity of artist quality acrylic paint. The 49 colors are a perfect pigment match for Golden's other lines of acrylic colors, but this formulation can go directly into an airbrush or empty marker without thinning. The low viscosity also makes this paint an excellent choice for detail painting, pen and ink, pouring and mixed media.

Golden SoFlat Matte Acrylic Colors

GOLDEN has developed a paint that helps artists create immersive fields of color without the distraction of texture and glare. The paint has a flowing consistency, offering exceptional coverage and a leveling capability as it dries. This unique combination of qualities can only be found in SoFlat Matte Acrylic Colors.

The Return of Genuine Cobalt Teal

Before it was discontinued in 2012, Cobalt Teal was one of our most popular colors. Now it's back in our Heavy Body palette, but just a little different from the pre-2012 version. This is great news for artists that love the qualities of genuine Cobalt Teal.
