Slow Drying Fluid Acrylics are acrylic waterborne paints designed with ideal color strength and a thixotropic consistency for decorative painting techniques. Can be used to color all Proceed® system acrylic mediums.

  • These are ready-to-use, out of the container slow drying acrylic paints.
  • For murals or ornamentation, can tint waterbased materials.
  • For tinting light colors in texture bases without changing product consistency.
  • The pigments used in the Dispersions are the same in the Slow Dry Fluid Acrylics.

How are they different from Golden Fluid Acrylics?

The Proceed Slow Drying Fluid Acrylics:

  • are slow drying.
  • won't dry on brushes: dried paint can be washed out - even after days, depending on ambient conditions.
  • thicker than Golden Fluids but not as thick as the Golden Heavy Body Acrylics.
  • designed for decorative painters giving extra open time to blend, however, you can recoat in 45 minutes depending on the ambient drying conditions.
  • can be used to tint faster drying materials to allow for extra workability but speed up the recoat time.
  • can be mixed with fast drying acrylics.
  • are thixatropic in nature, meaning, they thicken at rest. They are fluid and easy to blend under a brush but won't run all over your palette!
  • will skin over on your palette however, there is usually still usable paint underneath!

How are they different from Golden Open Acrylics?

The Proceed line was formulated for the needs of decorative painters and has not been tested against our stringent requirements for the GOLDEN fine art acrylics. So essentially, while they perform adequately as architectural coatings, we cannot say with confidence that they possess the long term, archival qualities expected of professional art materials. Therefore, if needing a very slow drying system and expecting the type of tested durability of our Golden Acrylics, we would encourage you to look at our OPEN Acrylics or use our Acrylic Glazing Liquid or OPEN Medium with our regular Fluid Acrylics. On the other hand, if the application is more decorative in nature, or your expectations of durability and longevity are more limited, then the Proceed Slow Drying Fluid Acrylics can certainly be used on canvas.

GOLDEN Open Acrylics have substantially longer working and open time than the Proceed Slow Drying Fluid Acrylics.
