Golden Open Acrylics offer an escape from the studio, allowing acrylic artists to experience the warm sun and fresh spring breeze of plein air painting.
This is a professional line of colors and mediums formulated with a unique, relaxed set of working properties that stay wet longer, even in outdoor conditions. Their versatility allows artists to explore a wider range of techniques that rely on softening, shading, glazing, and creating fine detail.
Open Acrylics remain wet on the palette for extended periods of time. This means that color mixes are usable longer, resulting in less waste. Their remarkable working time makes them an ideal choice for many techniques, including plein air painting, portraiture, monoprinting, and screenprinting. They may be used with natural fiber brushes, and also work well with more traditional painting techniques.
These sets offer a fantastic way to experiment with this exciting line of acrylics.
