Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colours is the original line of Golden Artist Acrylic Colour, and is known for its exceptionally smooth, thick buttery consistency. It contains the largest assortment of unique pure pigments in a 100 per cent acrylic emulsion vehicle available to the professional artist. These colours offer excellent permanency and lightfastness. There are no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners or dyes added.
Each Heavy Body colour is formulated differently depending on the nature of the pigment. Colours that tolerate high pigment loads dry to a more opaque, matte finish. Colours that are more reactive and do not accept high pigment loading dry to a glossy finish and tend to be more transparent. Heavy Body colours contain no additives, such as matting agents, therefore the gloss of each colour will reflect the characteristics of each pigment in their purest form.
Please note - Golden place a high priority on the health and safety of the artists's studio and materials. They feel the artists should be aware of any potential hazards so Golden far surpass the required quantity of health and safety advice on their labels. Their products are not more dangerous, just more accurately labelled.
