Use Golden's GAC Mediums to achieve complete technical control over your acrylic paints and painting environment. GAC Mediums are the raw materials from which other acrylic mediums are created. Use them to modify the working characteristics and appearance of Golden Acrylics and other acrylic paints.
Golden's other acrylic mediums are a blend of GAC mediums, the raw polymers themselves, with each other, and with other structural elements such as gels or powdered marble dust.
GAC 100: Universal Acrylic Polymer
useful for diluting and extending colors, as well as increasing flexibility and film integrity. Wets out solids more readily than other polymers, and is useful for artists making their own paints.
GAC 200: Acrylic Polymer for Increasing Film Hardness
The hardest and least flexible polymer. Mix with acrylic paints to increase film hardness and reduce dry film tack. Useful for adhering acrylic paints to nonporous surfaces such as glass or plastic. Dries to a clear, gloss finish.
GAC 500: Acrylic Polymer for Self-Leveling Applications
Adds a self-leveling working quality, and dries to a high gloss with good transparency. Increases mar resistance, and decreasing dry film tack.
GAC 800: Acrylic Polymer for Reducing Craze
Use when puddles must dry with the same evenness and smoothness as when wet. Other GAC polymers will "craze" when drying, developing shrinkage crevices across the surface. GAC 800 dries with good gloss and flexibility but with moderate clarity. Also ideal for priming chalky surfaces.

Comments about Golden GAC Acrylic Polymer Mediums:
I use GAC-200 so I can paint on tinfoil. Acrylic paint won't adhere to metal unless you mix it with this medium. It also will toughen the paint to an incredible degree so it can be used for something like a book cover that gets banged and scratched - the paint will be protected. A killer product. #sweepstakes
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Use this with 500 to seal taped lines or shapes for crisp reveal
A great product
from Lafayette, IN
This is a great product to use for pouring acrylic paints. It mixes well with the acrylic paints and is a much better product than 'Floetrol' that a lot of people are using for there pours. Golden's products are an exceptional product that I will use for all my paintings.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE GAC800
GAC800 is remarkable; creating a very nice surface of blended paint and leaves a beautiful smooth glossy surface

I use this product to prevent crazing in acrylic pours. My paint is thin, and I'm using cradled pallets rather than canvas. Even on a 12" square pallet, I get crazing unless I tent for slower drying. Maybe it's partly a problem of the dry climate here
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
