Golden Heavy Body Artists Acrylic Introductory Set 6 x 22ml
This set of 6 Professional GOLDEN Heavy Body Acrylics provides an excellent introduction into the working properties of a professional quality, purely pigmented, Heavy Body acrylic paint. Artists can explore rich, vibrant color as they investigate the abilities of these paints to retain brush strokes or "stand up" on the canvas. Set includes 6-22ml tubes in a reusable plastic case: Napthol Red Light , Hansa Yellow Medium , Titanium White , Mars Black , Permanent Green Light, Ultramarine Blue. The original line of GOLDEN Acrylic heavy body paints are noted for their exceptionally smooth, rich, buttery consistency. These paints have the ability to "stand up" and retain brush strokes or palette knife marks on the canvas. The HB colors retain excellent flexibility when dry, greatly diminishing the possibility of cracking that occurs in other natural and synthetic polymer systems. All HB colors are thixotropic in nature. This means that when brushing or stirring, the paints actually lose viscosity and feel much thinner. The faster the paints are moving, the thinner they feel. Returned to a state of rest, the paints gradually increase in thickness until they are again restored to their formulated viscosity. The Heavy Body palette includes the largest assortment of unique pure pigments in a 100% acrylic emulsion available to professional artists. These colors offer excellent permanency and lightfastness. There are no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, or dyes added. Each Heavy Body colour formula reflects the qualities of its pigment. Colours that tolerate a higher pigment load dry to a more opaque, matte finish. Colours that are more reactive and do not allow as much pigment loading tend to have a glossier, more transparent, finish. Because Heavy Body colours contain no matting agents, the gloss of each color will be different.
