A Paint Line With The Muralist in Mind

  1. Can I please ask what the issues are with using PR122 (Quinacridone Magenta) outside? There is nothing I can see on your normal acrylic ranges for this pigment warning of any issues.

    • Thank you for your question Richard. While Quinacridone Magenta has a Lightfastness rating of I, this is based on an ASTM interior museum lighting guideline. An exterior setting has a higher and more concentrated light intensity and environmental factors and in our testing, we have seen tints made with this color change faster than we are comfortable recommending for use outside.

      We hope this is helpful and if you have any other questions, feel free to email us at help@goldenpaints.com.

  2. Thanks Stacey, that’s interesting. I see you have pure Quinacridone Violet (PV19 – the dark shade version) in there, and you didn’t see any issues with that outside?

  3. Please tell me more about:
    We also offer a Mural Adhesive Gel for adhering parachute cloth to the wall.
    I adhere fabrics to walls for street art/mural commissions and I’ve never heard of this – please explain this technique further. Is this a common practice for muralists? What are they doing?

    Also, will you please consider selling a sample set of these paints for muralists to try?


    • Hi Meredith,

      The Mural Adhesive Gel is a heavy acrylic gel that can adhere elements that are compatible with acrylics. Polytab fabric is used for exterior murals because after proper priming, usually holds up well in an exterior setting and the painting can be done offsite to be installed later. This gives the freedom to work on exterior murals in all seasons. We do not recommend canvas or cotton fabric in an exterior setting, as it will not hold up to the elements. If you would like more information or to inquire about samples, please feel free to give us a call at 800-959-6543 and ask to speak with someone in our Golden Paintworks division.
