GOLDEN Retarder is an additive used to increase the open (drying) time of acrylic paints. Useful for wet in wet techniques and reducing skinning on the palette.

GOLDEN Mediums offer artists infinite control of changing acrylic colors. Use Mediums to control transparency, viscosity and surface sheen. GOLDEN Mediums can be thought of as colorless paints, as they are composed of similar polymers as are the acrylic paints. They are the glue or binder that dry to form continuous, durable films. They are made of 100 per cent acrylic polymers, which have proven to have excellent flexibility and chemical, water and ultraviolet radiation resistance. 

Admittedly, such a large number of mediums can often seem staggering and can confuse artists. However, with at least a general understanding of the various products available, and an inclination to experiment, artists can create new ways in which to express themselves, and probably apply materials in a way that GOLDEN has not thought about. We have put information on each of the different mediums on their own pages, and more can be found on the official GOLDEN paints website,

Please note - GOLDEN place a high priority on the health and safety of the artists studio and materials. They feel the artists should be aware of any potential hazards so Golden far surpass the required quantity of health and safety advice on their labels. Their products are not more dangerous, just more fully labelled.

Definitely prolonged the drying time of the paint by at least 20 mins (obviously changes with the amount you mix), and lets acrylic last longer both on the canvas and on the paint palette. Also for the smallest bottle it was still a good size



Does what it says very well. Brilliant for using with acrylics on my gelli plate.



Not tried product yet, but looks like it'll do what I want it do
