Matte Black of my Dreams
from Minneapolis, MN
Comments about Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
from Lynchburg VA
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.
Great Brand for Great Results
from Oakland, CA
There's a reason Golden acrylics are so popular. While they cost a bit more, you can count on great pigment and great fluidity.
My favorite paint
By T E
from Bay Area, CA
These are not quite as fluid as Golden's regular fluid acrylics, but similar. Nice matte finish. I supplement the color pallete with fluid acrylics. I also use a lot of golden glazing liquid with these for even transparent glazes and longer working time. They come in great bottles. Expensive but I use paint very conservatively. Highly recommend.
Great paint, just what I'd hoped.
By Tim painter
from Berkely, CA
This is a great low viscocity acrylic. Dries evenly matte as described. The final look is similar to guouche. The bottle it comes in is great and makes dispensing paint really easy, just be sure to close it right away when not in use.

They are very good but not perfect
from New York city
The colors are intense and apparently have a good amount of pigment however when used undiluted they start to dry almost immediately causing a skin to form. I add a small amount of water which slows down the drying process but thins the paint so that I have to apply 2 or 3 coats to achieve the same results.
