Molding Pastes allow the artist to achieve a great variety of effects and expressions. Even though acrylic colors are offered in various consistencies and finishes, the use of molding pastes in conjunction with such colors will broaden the working properties and expand on the possible results. Pastes contain Marble Dust or Diatomatious Earth, clays or other fillers resulting in a white or clay-tone finish. Different pastes have been formulated to contain specific properties:
- Extra Heavy/Molding Paste--A blend of Extra Heavy Gel Gloss and Molding Paste. Dries to a satin, semi-opaque finish. Excellent for increasing viscosity and building surfaces.
- Molding Paste--Excellent for building surfaces and creating textures. Dries to a hard, yet flexible, opaque film. Blend with Golden Acrylic colors.
- Hard Molding Paste --Dries to a extremely hard, opaque film. This product is useful for creating tough, durable finshes for smooth or textured surfaces. The dried film can be carved with hand or power tools. Blend with Golden Acrylic colors.
- Light Molding Paste--Offers dramatic weight reductions when building thick layers of acrylic. The density of the wet product is over 50% less than Golden Molding Paste. This results in a significantly lighter film. This dramatic weight reduction will be beneficial in creating artworks that are large in size, have thick film build-up, or both. The product dries to an opaque, matte finish. The consistency is designed to hold stiff peaks to create a highly textured surface. Blend with Golden Acrylic colors.
