First created on a custom basis for artists requesting a pigment-saturated, low-viscosity acrylic paint, Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics require no thinning with water or mediums to achieve a wide variety of effects.
Ideal for pouring, puddling, and dripping, Matte Fluid Acrylics can also be used as an alternative to watercolors for staining, and for spray application.
For optimal tinting strength and coverage in an undiluted acrylic paint, Golden's Matte Fluid Acrylics are an excellent choice.

I am so happy I discovered these paints
from Barre, MA
Comments about Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics:
I love these. I was already a huge fan of the Golden Fluid acrylics and now prefer them over the heavy bodied paints, as when I use those I tend to thin them anyway. The Matte line is the perfect addition to the other Fluid acrylics for the way I paint. I love the gouache like surface. But what really makes it is the opaque, self-leveling coverage when you need it. The color saturation is just right. I tend to use these in areas of the painting I want to be matte and opaque, or as a layer. I combine them with the Golden fluid acrylics and sometimes the High Flow. I also intend to do some work with these alone. Just awesome! Thank you for this addition to the Golden line. #sweepstakes

Great matte color
from Lynchburg VA
I use this as a background color in large non-representational acrylics. It is the best. The vinyl paints don't coordinate as well with the other acrylic colors in my opinion. It's expensive but worth it. Get lots of whote if you are going to mix colors

Not too heavily opaque
from Central Virginia
This is a somewhat translucent white, as compared with titanium. This quality becomes more pronounced with addition of matt-medium.
Matte Black of my Dreams
from Minneapolis, MN
I am greatly pleased with this matte carbon black - I just wish it were available in brick-and-mortar stores. The struggle of having to choose between matte finish and high opacity in black paint is over! This is slightly more viscous than the other Golden fluid acrylics - if fluid is 1 and heavy body is 5, this is a 2, similar in consistency to fabric paints or cheap ketchup. Naturally, the jet blackness of carbon black takes a slight ding to get the matte finish, but this is really the best combination of opaqueness and matte finish you'll find. I really wish Golden would make matte carbon black as part of their main heavy body and fluid acrylic lines, but am ecstatic that it exists at all.
Great for toning
from Los Angeles, CA
I use it for toning panels and canvases. Nice that it is already thin. I use the earth colors.
Abstract acrylic paintings. These are very intensely colored, thick paints. A little goes a long way. And the coverage is the best
I love the fact that it is a matte acrylic. when it's dry it looks like velvet. The colours are great. Great advantage, it doesn't dry that quick as the heavy body matte acrylics. Disadvantage, there are not that much colours to chose as the heavy body matte acrylics and I really miss the quinacridone nickel azo gold.
