Golden Heavy Body Acrylic Paint is a range of excellent-quality acrylic colours.
Made with pure pigments and without fillers or extenders, these are smooth and thick colours that produce outstanding results, holding peaks and brush or knife marks particularly well and with high permanence and lightfastness.
Unlike other acrylic colours, Golden Heavy Body Acrylics vary in gloss according to the pigment used; this leaves you the option of adding mediums to influence the effect produced. Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colours work well with the wide range of Golden gels and pastes.

QWhat is the difference between the ‘series’?
Artist quality paints are priced in series numbers. These numbers are determined by the pigments used to create the paints, and depending on the how these pigments are sourced, these will differ in price. Colours of paint that are made using a pigment derived from precious stones for example will be more expensive than colours of paint that are made from an easily sourced pigment such as carbon. Only artist quality paints are priced in series numbers because they will only use ‘genuine’ single pigment, whereas beginner/student quality paints will often mix more economic pigments to create ‘hues’ of more expensive pigment in the interest of being cost effective.
QWhat brush should I use to paint acrylic?
The versatility of acrylic paint means it can be applied in various ways, using either brushes, foam, palette knives and even sponges. The best kind of brush to use depends on the desired outcome. A soft synthetic brush for example will work well for a smooth application of paint, whereas a hard bristled synthetic or hog brush will create a more pronounced brush stroke. Brushes with good ‘spring’ are ideal for use with acrylic paint as they have the strength required to lift the paint.
QWhat are the benefits of painting acrylic as oppose to oil or watercolour?
All three types of painting offer very different experiences. Acrylic paint is a versatile media, available in varied forms and viscosities. It can be applied onto many different surfaces and with a variety of mediums, making experimenting with acrylic both easy and satisfying. It is also water mixable and fast drying, which presents the artist with a fuss-free approach to painting.
QWhat surface does acrylic paint work best on?
Acrylic paint works best on cotton or linen stretched canvases or canvas board, as these will offer a resistant surface for thick/heavy applications of paint. If you are looking to paint on paper, a paper designed specifically for acrylic painting would suit best. However, theoretically speaking you can still paint directly onto any heavyweight paper as acrylic paint is water based and will not “sink” like oil paints might. Acrylic paint can also be painted onto surfaces such as wood, plastic, metal or brick, just so long as the surface is primed or prepared where suitable.
