  1. Hi Golden Paints,
    Just wondering if the Clear Pouring Medium (Thin) & Clear Pouring Medium (Thick) dry to a crystal clear finish? I have been using GAC 800 in pours and have found that it yellows. This tendency becomes more pronounced depending on the number of layers.

    • Hi Tina,

      They do dry to very clear films, and it is true that our GAC 800 does dry with a hazier film. Of course any water borne acrylic film will show a yellowish color if applied directly on cotton canvas or any wood based panel, due to support induced discoloration, so you may be seeing some of that as well in the GAC 800. This effect comes from water miscible compounds found in canvas and wood products that leaches up into drying acrylic films.

      The experimental Pouring Mediums will also discolor due to “SID”. This can be effectively blocked by applying a few coats of either GAC 100 or Polymer Medium to the canvas or panel first. These Pouring Mediums are still experimental and not generally available, unfortunately. We are working on them. The great thing about GAC 800 is how non-crazing it is and I have been using it a lot in my own work mixed with Fluid Acrylics. It makes beautiful pours.

      Here are some links with more information about discoloration and the natural “patina” of acrylic films:

      • Thanks Scott,
        Just wondering when the Clear Pouring Mediums (Thin & Thick) will be generally available? I’m anxious to start using them in my own art practice, as well as exploring them with my painting students.

        Best Regards,

    Hi Tina! At this point in time, we are still testing these products and have no clear time frame for when they might be regular products or even custom products. They are still in the experimental phase. But, if you send us your email address we can send you some more details about the products. Send a message to me at sbennett@goldenpaints.com and we can proceed from there!

    Best regards, Scott Bennett
