About This Experience

A 2-hour Golden Artist Colors Conversation and Demonstration! 

Discover the possibilities of Acrylic Color! This event focuses on GOLDEN’s Acrylic Paint lines. You will gain a broad understanding of each paint line and the unique qualities each can offer. We will touch on the differences between Heavy Body Acrylic Colors, slow drying OPEN Acrylic Colors and SoFlat Matte Acrylic colors. We will compare Fluid Acrylics Colors to High Flow Acrylic colors, which have an ink-like consistency.

You will be shown how to find Pigment, Temperature, Opacity and Tinting Strength on the product label, and how these choices effect color mixing. We will share insight about transparency vs opacity, Mineral colors vs Modern colors, color wheels and how to use our Virtual Color Mixer.

Come learn the wide range of techniques that the lines can be used for, traditional uses, print making, college work and much more. Learn how to extend your paint by as much as 70% and create many desired effects. We’ll also include the specialty paint lines; the Iridescent and Interference Colors along with the Fluorescent/phosphorescent colors.

We will share how to modify the paint to change drying time, sheen and texture using GOLDEN Additives, Mediums & Gels. All of these acrylic products can be applied to a wide range of surfaces such as paper, canvas, wood panels and so much more.

You’ll learn valuable information about GOLDEN products and network with other artists. Samantha Williams-Chapelsky GOLDEN Working Artist will also share several examples, techniques and answer your questions during the event.

This informative hands-on workshop will happen at the Opus Art Supplies Granville Island location from 6:30 - 8:30 (PST). There is a $10 fee to register for this in-store Event. At the end of the Demo, you'll receive a $10 Opus Gift Card, and a coupon for 10% off and FREE SAMPLES too!
