  2. Golden 946ml GAC 200 Inc Film Hardness

    Golden 946ml GAC 200 Inc Film Hardness

    RRP £41.50
    SAA Price £37.35

    Please Note: Next Day Delivery is not available on this product.

    The hardest and least flexible of any Golden Acrylic product. Caution is advised when using this product alone.

    Used in its pure form, it is limited to applications on rigid supports, as its lack of flexibility may lead to cracking when flexed. When used alone it needs to be applied and left to dry at a minimum temperature of 70F / 21°C.

    Ideal as an additive to acrylic paints to increase film hardness and reduce dry film tack.

    Improves adhesion to non-porous surfaces; however some surfaces, such as glass and glazed tile, will not allow for a permanent bond
    Dries with high gloss and excellent film clarity.

    Promotes cleaner edges of hard-edge techniques. The harder paint film has less "pull" as the masking tape is removed. Learn More

    Used as a rabbitskin glue alternative when applied directly to raw canvas or linen.

    Allows sculpting and shaping of draped fabrics.

  6. Golden 237ml GAC 800 Pourable Techniques

    Golden 237ml GAC 800 Pourable Techniques

    RRP £17.50
    SAA Price £15.75

    Please Note: Next Day Delivery is not available on this product.

    Most useful as an additive for acrylic paints when pours/puddles are desired. Most acrylics will craze, which is the formation of valleys that run through a pour/puddle nullifying the uniformity of the film. Such crazing is the result of shrinkage forces exerted during the drying process. GAC 800 stands alone in its resistance to such film discontinuity.

    Dries with good gloss and film flexibility, but with a slight "hazy" quality.

    Useful as a modifier when adhesion to chalky surfaces is desired. Learn More
