Golden Open are a range of slow-drying acrylic paints. Their increased working time expands the range of techniques you can use to apply your paint, opening up a world of new methods previously limited to oils. You can even use them for some print making techniques! Those who cover their palettes or work from sealed containers can find that they are able to use the same colours for weeks, therefore minimizing waste and preserving your colour mixtures.
Golden believe that artists have the right to know what chemicals they are working with, and so have developed their own Health & Safety labelling system. You should follow basic precautions when using any Golden Products. Each label gives pigment identification information as well as general guidelines for safe use, and on Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) which list hazards of product components without incorporating the use assumptions of toxicological risk assessment. Golden's label advice for using chemical products safely, while conservative, emphasizes the need to err on the side of caution when using art materials. It's a lot of information to fit onto a label, Golden believe it's the best service they can offer. More information about Golden Health & Safety Labelling
