GOLDEN Heavy Body Fluorescent Acrylics are formulated using high pigment loads to ensure the most intense colors possible. Due to the high transparency of fluorescents, GOLDEN recommends applying over light colors of a similar hue to enhance the opacity of each color. To achieve higher intensity, use on as bright a white surface as possible, like GOLDEN White Gesso or GOLDEN Heavy Body Titanium White
GOLDEN Fluorescent Acrylic Colors are produced by surrounding dyes in a polymer coating. This coating allows for photo-luminescence to occur due to how ultraviolet radiation is absorbed and how the light is emitted back into the visible spectrum. Fluorescence then appears as intense, brilliant colors.
GOLDENs Heavy Body Acrylic Paint line is the original line of acrylic colors produced by GOLDEN. The Heavy Body line is know for its beautifully smooth, buttery texture and is the largest collection of 100% acrylic emulsion formulas available. When working with this line of GOLDEN acrylics, the colors retain brush strokes and knife marks, almost as if "standing up" off the medium.
Due to the exclusion of any and all filler, extenders, opacifiers, toners, or dyes added, GOLDENs Heavy Body acrylic colors offer exceptional permanency and lightfastness. On the other hand, due to no added matting agents, this line does not have a consistent finish. Considering each color has a different pigment toleration, those with a higher toleration will dry to a more matte finish. Those colors requiring a lower pigment load will dry glossier with higher transparency.
In terms of workability, GOLDEN Heavy Body Acrylics are thixotropic in nature, meaning the more the paint is moved, the lower the viscosity becomes. The faster the application, the thinner the paints feel beneath your tool of choice. When the colors come to rest they gradually return to their formulated viscosity.
