About This Product
Golden Heavy Body Acrylics are the gold standard in artist-grade acrylic colors, particularly for artists in the United States. Golden is based in upstate New York, and since its founding in 1980, this homegrown American color house has pushed the limits of pigmentation and permanence. Long-term outdoor tests are conducted in the New York snow to determine whether pigments are truly lightfast, and Golden's labs publish detailed information about every product.
Heavy Body is Golden's signature product—a buttery, substantial acrylic color that retains brushstrokes and builds texture. Unlike mass-market acrylics, these professional grade colors are never thin or inconsistent. Golden uses the maximum pigment load that can be suspended in each tube, plus a highly versatile acrylic polymer that ensures perfect brushability.
This new Intro Set of 6 features a balanced selection of colors in 3/4 oz (22 mL) tubes. The colors included are benzimidazolone yellow medium, naphthol red light, ultramarine blue, permanent green light, carbon black and titanium white.
