Golden Heavy Body Acrylic is noted for it's exceptional creamy consistency and uniquely pure pigments blended in a 100% acrylic emulsion. Formulated without fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, or dyes, these colors offer excellent permanency and lightfastness.
Each Heavy Body color formula reflects the qualities of its pigment. Colors that hold a higher pigment load dry to a more opaque, matte finish. Colors that are more reactive and do not allow as much pigment loading tend to have a glossier, more transparent, finish. Because Heavy Body colors contain no matting agents, the gloss of each color will be different.
Unlike other natural and synthetic polymer systems, Golden Heavy Body Acrylics maintain excellent flexibility when dry, greatly reducing the possibility of cracking. They also are excellent at maintaining their integrity on canvas as it expands and contracts with changes in temperature and humidity or the stress in shipping.
