GOLDEN Matte Fluids are specially formulated paints that provide a uniform flat finish in a wide variety of concentrated colors. Matte Fluids are thicker than traditional Golden Fluid Acrylics, but are made to self-level. This nature allows for more uniform films without brushstrokes. Matte Fluids have a low sheen and better overall opacity than Fluid Acrylics, making them ideal for traditional applications such as tempera and gouache.
Golden Fluid Acrylics are highly intense, permanent acrylic colors with a consistency similar to heavy cream. Produced from lightfast pigments, not dyes, they offer very strong colors with very thin consistencies. No fillers or extenders are added and the pigment load is comparable to Golden Heavy Body Acrylics.
Unlike mixtures of heavy-bodied paints and water which produce weak color washes and films by dilution, Fluid Acrylics contain high pigment levels suspended in an acrylic polymer vehicle. The result offers fine dispersion, high tinting strength, durability, flexibility and good adhesion.
Fluid Acrylics are ideal for spraying, brushing, staining and watercolor effects. They can be mixed with other Golden products.
