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 Mixing Set of 12 features a split-primary mixing palette of colors in 3/4 oz (22 mL) tubes, plus a 2 oz (59 mL) bottle of Golden Gloss Glazing Liquid for extending and thinning color. The split primary mixing system includes a warm and cool choice for each primary color, allowing the artist to reliably mix any secondary color or neutral tone.
The colors included are benzimidazolone yellow light, benzimidazolone yellow medium, naphthol red light, quinacridone magenta, phthalo blue (red shade), phthalo blue (green shade), phthalo green (blue shade), phthalo green (yellow shade), raw umber, titan buff, carbon black, and titanium white.
