This Golden Open Acrylic Intro Set 6 x 22ml contains six tubes of artist quality, slow drying acrylics in modern colours. The colours included in this set are:
Golden Open acrylics are specially formulated to have a slower drying rate than traditional acrylics. Not only does this mean that you have more time to mix and blend your colours, it also means that your colours will stay fresher for longer on your palette! Some artists find that in a sealed or covered palette their colours remain workable for weeks, resulting in much less dried and wasted paint. As they have a longer open time they are usable with techniques previously limited to oils, and can even be used in some printmaking methods. They have a slightly softer consistency than Golden's Heavy Body Acrylic colours.
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
