The GOLDEN virtual demo is a fun and informative 1 ½ hour Zoom session, which covers acrylics A-Z. Including videos of products in action and live demonstrations, the demo will cover a broad range of GOLDEN products, including:
– the different kinds of pigments and how they affect colour mixing; using different primaries; hues; the difference between the blacks and whites; iridescent and interference colors
– the different lines of acrylic paint and where and how to use each kind – Heavy Body for texture; Fluids for thin applications or a watercolor-like look; High Flow for an ink consistency; OPEN slow drying acrylics for extended blending, glazing and printmaking; and the brand new, velvety matte SoFlat acrylics
– the huge line of gels and mediums, the difference between types, and how to use them to change your paint consistency, create texture, enhance transparency, and extend your paints to save money
– molding pastes, and how to use them to create textured and unique painting surfaces
– the basics of varnishing
At the end of the demo, participants can sign up to get a free sample kit and product information folder sent to them directly from GOLDEN!
