Heavy Body Acrylics

by Golden

The original line of Golden Artist Acrylics is known for exceptionally smooth, thick, buttery consistency. It contains the largest assortment of unique pure pigments in a 100 % acrylic emulsion vehicle available to the professional artist. These colors offer excellent permanency and lightfastness. There are no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, or dyes added.

Each Heavy Body color is formulated differently depending on the nature of the pigment. Colors that tolerate higher pigment "loads" dry to a more opaque, matte finish. Colors that are more reactive and do not accept high pigment loading dry to a glossy finish and tend to be more transparent. Heavy Body colors contain no additives, such as matting agents.

Golden Heavy Body Acrylics produce a film with excellent flexibility, and chemical, water and UV resistance. The milky emulsion dries transparent, allowing the pigments to show their full color. Pigments are chosen for the greatest purity and permanency wihin each chemical class. Acrylics dry quickly, and may be painted over immediately, yet complete drying will take longer.

Colors marked (CP) are chemically pure, containing concentrated cadmium pigments.

Good quality, heavy body.

The best I have used and the only one I buy for acrylics.
Rated by: Frances S. in Pinehurst, NC
Always recommended and for good reason. Easy to manage and rsults are predictable.
Rated by: Russell W. in Warren, PA
Golden's products are the best. They are easy to use and the results are perfect. The Heavy Body Acrylics are the exact thickness for the projects I was working on. The color saturation was outstanding. MisterArt did an excellent job in packing my orders, each jar of paint was sealed so there was no spillage in shipping. I will be a repeat customer.

Great prices!

I don't use any other brand of Heavy Body acrylic paint unless the color I want is unavailable in Golden. The paints are highly saturated and the pigments very lightfast. I thin them with distilled water and Glazing Liquid for glazes and watercolor techniques. The results are beautiful.
Rated by: Ronald H. in San Jose, CA
nice and thick, great for silk screens. Stays liquid for a long time under plastic wrap and cures fast under a low speed fan.
Rated by: Devon N. in Valley Springs, CA
As a former die-hard user of a competetive brand, I was impressed enough with this paint to add it to my arsenal! It is a fantastic product, and the colors and conistency are outstanding.
Rated by: Wayne S. in Cottonwood, AZ
Shipment was right on time, although I ordered a green shade of blue and got a blue shade of green! Nevertheless I chose to keep it since I am a big fan of Golden products.

Great quality acrylic paints. The value and price were a great find. I'm glad I found Mr.Art.com instead of wasting money on paying full retail for the same product.
Rated by: Brett R. in West Des Moines, IA
I did a straight comparison of Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Grumbacher, Dick Blick, and Golden. Hands down, Golden is the best, most consistent acrylic paint out there.
Rated by: Sherrie H. in Phoenix, AZ
I love this stuff. I worked at an Art Store when this product first came out. That was eight years ago and I still use it today. I use all of the products.

Golden Heavy Body Acrylics colors, my favorite Acrylics, are high quality acrylic paints at reasonable prices especially on Misterart.com. They can be applied in different ways, dry with an incredible finish like oil-paints. The notable features makes this product one of the best on the market.
Rated by: Jennifer T. in Minneapolis, MN
Golden is the best paint I've used. It's a bit spendy but well worth the expense as the colors are vibrant, the thickness is easy to work with, and the selection and iridescent mediums in particular offer a lot of chances for experimentation. Definately professional grage and good.

This is great paint. The deep red and green gold are colors un-beat by any other brand.

I love these paints for the intensity of the colors. The staining colors make beautiful, luminous washes when thinned with water. Well worth the $, if you want your work to stand out.
Rated by: Ashley B. in New Paltz, NY
I love this product and it arrived promptly! This paint is amazing...has never let me down.
Rated by: Eleanor G. in New York, NY
I already knew I loved Golden Heavy Body Acrylics when I made my purchase from MisterArt. I will be coming back. I have been working with acrylics since 1999, and started with a few well known brands. The reason I moved up to the Golden paints is that, after I switched to Golden's gesso, my mentor told me that the colors have the reputation among people who know of being truest to color with the most pigment. So, since my career is progessing and deserves the best, I made the switch. I started with tubes, to experiment, but now order the little pots in the larger-than-tube sizes. I like to have my paints there for me in consistencies I like by adding water to the pot. I waste much less that way. MisterArt.com is my choice because of its prices and shipping costs. Artists have to watch the $ as well as the quality.

Once i used Golden Acrylic paint, I fell in love with the incredible texture of the paint! It is so rich and creamy, and smooth like butter. It's great to use as a medium and i don't think I'll go back to any other brands I've used in the past!
Rated by: david k. in denver, CO
Golden makes the best acrylics, hands down. However the color sguares on the site next to the paints are not accurate. My suggestion is to go to a local art store and decide what you want, then get online and order from mister art. great deals.

Golden acrylic's are the best on the market. Don't waste your money on other brands.
Rated by: Windi R. in Clarksville, TN
I love them!!! The colors are sooo rich, and yummy you could eat them...but don't do that.
Rated by: jennifer p. in College Station, TX
"It's like butta!" Golden never lets me down. I've had distributers try to sell me on other name brands, but I always go back to Golden. The extra money spent will save you in the long run.
Rated by: Judy H. in San Mateo, CA
Very versatile, saturated paints. I can scrub on undercoats of rich color, which dry fast. Then brush over with colors thinned with Glazing Liquid for delicate glazes that dry slowly. Wonderful for mixed media collage.
Rated by: Rosemary (Barnyardrose) B. in St. George, UT
High quality acrylics at an affordable price. Can be applied thickly for depth or watered down for washes and to extend the paint. Colors are brilliant. Dries with an incredible finish as if varnished.
Rated by: Sherry F. in Huntsville, AL
The Golden Acrylics are wonderful. The colors are vibrant and intense and the coverage is superb. These will be acrylics I use most frequently in the future.
Rated by: Darlene P. in Arlington, VT
These paints are great to work with. You can get beautiful glazes as well as opaque work. They mix well with other acrylic brands. They never separate in their tubes from the binder. Excellent colors.
Rated by: Deb C. in Hermosa Beach, CA
GOLDEN Professional Acrylic Colors are excellent quality.
Rated by: Andrew C. in Pusan, Korea....and, NY
Golden colors are by far the finest acrylic colors I have ever set brush to. Amazing consistency, strong pigments; able to be diluted without losing their integrity or elasticity. Great mixing potential, as they don't separate or become muddy. Wonderful...

Super smooth consistancy - beautiful colors and great control.
