Golden OPEN Intro Set
Golden OPEN Acrylics are slow drying acrylics that have a remarkably relaxed working property that facilitates blending, softening, shading, glazing and fine detail. This Golden OPEN Intro set includes 6 basic colors in 22 ml tubes, as well as a 1 oz Golden OPEN Thinner medium.
OPEN Acrylics remain wet for a long period of time, unlike most acrylics. They also will not produce a skin on the palette during long painting sessions. Painters can control the drying time of OPEN Acrylics depending on the thickness of the paint application.
Use this versatile paint for techniques typically challenging for acrylics, such as portraiture, plein air painting, monoprinting and screenprinting. To speed drying time, OPEN Acrylics can be blended with faster-drying GOLDEN Acrylics or Gel Mediums.
- Colors (22 ml): Benzimidazolone Yellow Medium, Naphthol Red Light, Ultramarine Blue, Permanent Green Light, Carbon Black and Titanium White.
- 1 x Golden OPEN Thinner 1oz
About Golden Open Slow Drying Acrylics
Golden 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.
