Golden Artist Colors SoFlat Matte Acrylic Paint
ITEM #: PSF-01_PY_4ozPRICE: $16.39 Regular price
GOLDEN has developed a paint that helps artists create immersive fields of color without the distraction of texture and glare. The paint has a flowing consistency, offering exceptional coverage and a leveling capability as it dries. This unique combination of qualities can only be found in SoFlat Matte Acrylic Colors.
Artists have used gouache for centuries because of its matteness and opacity, but are restricted by its inherently sensitive paint film. SoFlat moves beyond these limitations, providing a velvety smooth, durable surface. The advantages of SoFlat are extended by its compatibility with other acrylic paints and mediums, increasing the range of creative effects that can be achieved.
Perhaps the most important quality of SoFlat is quality itself. Because it is produced using the same professional standards as all GOLDEN Acrylics, and is backed by our unrivaled service and support, you can depend on the performance and consistency of these professional artist colors.
OPACITY AND COVERAGE
When striving for that pure color effect, you need a paint that goes down evenly with full intensity in as few coats as possible. While some pigments are naturally transparent, SoFlat has a unique formulation that provides greater opacity from these colors than is normally found in acrylic paints.
Perhaps the most distinctive quality, and the one that might be most unique to SoFlat, is the paints natural leveling quality. The paint relaxes after being brushed out, making it easier to minimize the appearance of brushstrokes for uninterrupted fields of rich matte color.
Artists have always been drawn to the enigmatic quality of matte color, and SoFlat delivers with a glare-free surface that allows the depth and intensity of each color take center stage.
