The GOLDEN MXR (Virtual Paint Mixer) is a tool which allows the artist to virtually experiment with and explore color options within the GOLDEN palette.
The history of Golden Artist Colors is the history of acrylic paint. The late Sam Golden, along with his paint-making uncle, Lenny Bocour, developed one of the first commercially available acrylics at the midpoint of the last century.
In 1972, after 30 years experience in the business, Sam retired from paint making and moved to picturesque New Berlin, New York. Bored and restless in retirement, he began Golden Artist Colors, Inc., in 1980, based out of a 900 square foot renovated cow barn in his back yard.
Golden embodies Sam's lifelong dedication to serve the professional artist. Sam described his work as simply "making tools" for artists, actively searching out ways to maintain extraordinarily high pigment load, thick and smooth consistencies, flexibility, and excellent brush and knife stroke retention.
Today, Golden is respected as a leader in American paint making, maintaining a laserlike focus on acrylic paint. Their concern for artists has yielded constantly improving paint films and safer products for the studio.
Sam's son Mark continues the legacy of Golden, as the company continues to win awards for both the quality of its products, and the quality of its business.
