Useful for diluting and extending colours as well as increasing flexibility and film integrity. In the production of homemade paints, it wets out pigments better than other polymers. It is a very good size for sealing fabrics and the best Support Induced Discolouration (SID)-blocker Golden makes. GAC stands for Golden Artist Colors but the GAC range of mediums are pure acrylic resins each with specific properties. ABOUT GOLDEN Golden Acrylic Colours are made by the Golden family in upstate New York. Sam Golden has been making paint in New York since the 1930s, and released the first commercially available acrylic, Magna, in 1947. Throughout the Fifties and Sixties he continued to develop his colours and mediums in close partnership with leading art practitioners. In the mid-Seventies, he attempted to retire to up-state New York, but too many artists protested that they were reliant on his products, so he started Golden Paints with his son Mark in the early Eighties. The Goldens pay special attention to the latest technological advances in pigment and binders, and continue to work closely with artists to develop new materials. They were the first to develop a water-tension-breaker, the first to use Quinacridone pigments, the first to develop Zinc White for acrylic, the first to use Interference colours, and their latest ground-breaking products include OPEN Acrylics and Digital Mix Media.
