Description
  • Golden Retarder is a medium that will increase the drying time of acrylic colours, allowing you more time to work.
  • It’s equally useful for wet-on-wet painting, and for avoiding the formation of skin when using a palette.

We stock Golden Retarder in two sizes, 119ml and 473ml.

12th June 2019 Reviewed by Suzan Roberts-Skeats I've never used a retarder before so a new experience and can't make comparisons. However, I've found a tiny amount goes a long way. Used it to make an excellent glaze and for keeping paint workable on a rather slow going, intense piece. I will def use again.

8th May 2019 Reviewed by Barbara Taylor-Gell Having had to switch to acrylics from oils for health reasons, finding this retarder has transformed the way I can work, extending the ability to blend and work 'wet on wet'.

18th May 2016 Reviewed by Tim Thomson Great for making acrylics keep 'wet' for longer, and it doesn't dilute the colour or make it too transparent, unless you use too much - a little experimenting sorts this out quickly.
