GOLDEN OPEN Acrylics are a slow-drying formulation with a slightly softer consistency than GOLDEN Heavy Body paints. The increased working time of these colors expands their range to include more traditional techniques once only possible with oils.
Because OPEN Acrylics dry slowly, painters who cover their palettes or use sealed containers have been able to use the same colors for weeks, reducing the amount of paint wasted and preserving color mixtures for future use.
A modern mixture replacing the pigment originally produced in the early 1800's by collecting urine from oxen fed only mango leaves. Our version is more permanent, more lightfast, totally humane and (best of all) urine-free.
