GOLDEN OPEN Slow-Drying Color Mixing - Modern Theory
OPEN Acrylics are a slow-drying paint with a slightly softer consistency than our Heavy Body paints. The increased working time of these colors expands their range to include more traditional techniques once only possible with oils. Thick applications can dry extremely slowly, so we recommend artists only use OPEN Colors thinly (< 1 mm). Drying time can also be accelerated by mixing OPEN with faster-drying acrylics like our Fluid and Heavy Body colors. The slow-drying capability of OPEN Acrylics also makes the suitable for some printmaking techniques.
Because OPEN Acrylics dry slowly, painters who cover their palettes or use sealed containers have been able to use the same colors for weeks, reducing the amount of paint wasted and preserving color mixtures for future use.
Seven - 22 ml OPEN Colors, One - 59 ml OPEN Titanium White, One - 30 ml OPEN Thinner. OPEN Slow-Drying Acrylics have a remarkably relaxed working property that facilitates blending, softening, shading and glazing and fine detail. This eight color set is capable of producing some of the cleanest, brightest mixes for a wide array of hues and shades. The set includes a reference guide/poster with proportions for mixing popular colors. OPEN colors can be mixed with Fluid and Heavy Body colors to control drying time.
