Sam Golden, co-founder of Golden Acrylic Colours, was a pioneer in the development of artist's acrylic paint in the early 1940's. His experience and innovative spirit are reflected in this excellent range of finest quality artist's acrylics.
Golden Artists Colours acrylics are known for their exceptionally smooth, thick texture. They include many pigments previously unavailable to artists in acrylic paints. All paints contain pure pigment in 100% acrylic emulsion vehicle. No adulterants of any kind are added. Each colour in the Heavy Body line has its own specific level of gloss. Colours that tolerate higher pigment loads dry to a more opaque matte finish. Those more reactive to large loading appear more transparent and glossy. These features along with meticulous quaility control and ongoing research, make Golden the world's finest line of artists acrylic paint.
NEW for 2019 - 32 oz GOLDEN Heavy Body Colors now available! Scroll down for prices.
Starting in January 2019, we are pleased to announce that select 32oz colours of GOLDEN Heavy Body Acrylics will now be a regular stock item in our store! See in store for a complete list of the colours that will be offered, and if you are looking for a particular GOLDEN colour (in any size) that we do not currently stock, we are always happy to order it for you. Please contact us for an estimated availability timeline. With the closure of Stevenson paints in 2018, we needed to find an alternative for large-size containers of artist-quality paint. GOLDEN was the logical choice, given their high quality products, extensive size range, and the popularity of their products among Saskatoon painters. Though GOLDEN is a top-quality brand, with a price point to match, the nice thing about their pricing is that they have a volume discount built into their pricing of larger sizes. When you up-size from a 2-ounce tube to an 8-ounce jar, for example, you get 4 times the volume of paint for roughly three times the price! The jump from 8-ounce to 32-ounce follows the same formula, meaning the bigger you go, the less you pay ounce-for-ounce. 32-ounce jars are obviously not the right fit for all painters, which is why we will continue to offer the broadest selection of GOLDEN acrylics in a variety of sizes, including the full range of colours in 2-ounce tubes, 90 colours in 5-ounce tubes, 56 colours in 8-ounce jars, 28 colours in 16-ounce jars, and 21 colours in 32-ounce jars. For customers looking for larger volumes of paint at an economical price point, we've also still got plenty of options.
