Golden Heavy Body acrylic paints are known for their exceptionally smooth, buttery consistency.  Paints are made with unique, pure pigments in 100% acrylic emulsion having no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners or dyes being added.  Colours offer excellent permanence and lightfastness.  Each colour formula reflects the qualities of its pigment.  Colours able to tolerate a higher pigment load will dry to a more opaque, matte finish.  Colours which are more reactive not allowing as much pigment loading tend to be glossier and more transparent when dry. Colours sheens will vary due to no matting agents being used.  These paints have the ability to retain brush strokes or palette knife marks on the canvas.  Golden heavy body paints are thixotopic.  This mean when brushing or stirring the paints will lose viscosity becoming thinner.  The faster the paints are moving the thinner they will feel.  After returning to a state of rest the paints will gradually increase in thickness until they are back to their original viscosity.  Excellent flexibility when dry which will greatly diminish the possibility of cracking occurring.  They are able to absorb the constant stress and strain placed on canvas when shipped or as it expands and contracts with changes in temperature and humidity.  Fully intermixable with all Golden products.  Mixing too much water into the paint will reduce binding capacities as well as it tends to flatten out their sheen.
