OPEN Acrylics are a slow-drying paint with a slightly softer consistency than our Heavy Body paints. The increased working time of these colours 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 Colours thinly (1 mm). Drying time can also be accelerated by mixing OPEN with faster-drying acrylics like our Fluid and Heavy Body colours. 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 colours for weeks, reducing the amount of paint wasted and preserving colour mixtures for future use.
- OPEN acrylics remain wet far longer than other acrylics
- Working time varies according to how thick the material is applied
- Thin applications tack allowing layers to be applied and blended
- Tube Dimensions: 1 x 2 x 5 inches (2.5 x 5.1 x 12.7 cm)
- Weight: 1.6 ounces (9 g)
Golden OPEN Acrylics are unique paints that are a true departure from all other acrylic paints on the market. They have a unique and relaxed set of working characteristics that expands the range and techniques available to acrylic artists.
OPEN Acrylics remain wet for much longer than other acrylics, which greatly facilitates blending, softening, shading, glazing and fine detail. The drying time varies with how thickly the paint is applied. Thicker applications may be worked for hours.
The unique properties allow them to be used with both synthetic and natural fiber brushes. Try them for portraiture, plein air painting, nonprinting, and screen-printing. Use these paints with OPEN Mediums for ultimate control or with other Golden products for an unparalleled range of working options.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers. I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much. I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies. We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary. You have made our lives so much simpler. I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends.
Thank you again.
I will be back.

Thanks very much Bob, the parcel arrived last Monday and the paintings are already hanging on the wall. I appreciate your excellent service.
I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!
I hope I’ll be able to broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J
