Welcome to dickblick
These mediums were developed specifically for use with Golden Open Acrylics. Use them to add versatility and extend working time while painting.
Open Acrylics expand the boundaries of acrylic painting, making them suitable for artists whose painting style benefits from extended working time. They can be used for a wide range of techniques, including portraiture, plein air painting, monoprinting, and screenprinting.
Supplied in the same consistency as the Golden Open Acrylic colors. Use it to extend the paints while maintaining their working properties.
Formulated to a lower viscosity than the Golden Open Acrylic colors. Use it to extend the paints when a more fluid mixture is desired to increase flow.
Use this to thin the consistency of paint mixes, or to maintain and adjust the workability of colors on the palette without the use of water mist and moisturizing palettes.

Comments about Golden Open Acrylic Mediums:
I had debated whether to purchase this medium for Golden's open product since I already had regular acrylic paint, but I did want the advantage of the extended time the open acrylic gives you. So after doing some research I found Goldens open medium could be mixed with any acrylic paint. So I purchased Golden open acrylic paint in a few of the colors that I needed. I also purchased the open thinner too and the open medium to use with the acrylic paint I already had in my studio. I love that I have more working time especially when using on my gelli plate for mono prints.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A small bottle came with my Landscape Srt of Golden Open Acrylics. It gives the paint a smooth flow without diluting the color like water does. So I ordered more.
I am addicted
I use it with my golden open acrylic and it is always a pure pleasure : )

Adding a touch of golden open acrylic medium to ANY of my brands of acrylics makes them glide across the canvas! I get at least an hour of open time and the paint dries with a nice oil paint type gloss.

So far, so good
from Cadillac, MI
I am just beginning to explore acrylic mediums. For years I did oils exclusively, but have had to switch because of health issues. I am really enjoying the gloss medium, matt medium, and thinner that I have used so far. They stand up to the advertised uses and more. I can't wait to try some of the others from Golden Open Acrylics.

A new staple in my stash
By Mixed Media Junkie
I use this for block printing, stamping, and monopriting. I've used it with every brand and type of acrylics imaginable, even the cheap craft acrylics. It's amazing what a good medium can do to increase the versatility of an inexpensive paint.
Golden Open Thinner

I love this stuff. It keeps the color true but helps achieve a nice wash without the washout of too much water. It is great to use when painting water pieces.
