Golden Acrylic Polymers

GOLDEN GAC (short for Golden Artist Colors) Specialty Acrylic Polymers are based on 100% acrylic polymer emulsions. The GACs are useful as mediums or modifiers of acrylic paints. GACs can be blended with GOLDEN Acrylic Paints to extend the paint, regulate transparency, create glazes, increase gloss, reduce viscosity or improve adhesion and film integrity. The GAC polymers can also be used for binding pigment solids for various effects and surfaces. Unlike the other GOLDEN Mediums and Gels, GAC Acrylic Polymers have only a minimum amount of thickeners, levelers, defoamers and surfactants to ensure good film formation.


GAC 100 Acrylic
A liquid acrylic polymer emulsion useful for diluting and extending colors as well as increasing flexibility and film integrity. Wets out solids more readily than other polymers and is useful for creating homemade paints.

Golden GAC 100 8oz Cylinder — GD3910-5

  • For diluting and extending colors as well as increasing flexibility and film integrity
  • Wets out solids more readily than other polymers and is ueful for artists formulating their own paints
  • Also ideal as a primer for preventing Support Induced Discoloration (SID)

Golden GAC 200 8oz Cylinder — GD3920-5

  • A liquid acrylic polymer emulsion that is the hardest and least flexible of GOLDEN acrylics
  • For increasing film hardness and reducing tack. Increases adhesion to non-porous surfaces however some surfaces, such as glass and glazed tile, will not allow for a permanent bond
  • Used in its pure form, it is limited to applications on non-flexible supports
  • Generally recommend a maximum level of GAC 200 be 33% of the entire paint mixture

Golden GAC 800 8oz Cylinder — GD3980-5

  • Based on 100% acrylic polymer emulsions
  • Useful as mediums or modifiers of acrylic paints
  • Can be blended with GOLDEN Acrylic Paints to extend the paint, regulate transparency, create glazes, increase gloss, reduce viscosity or improve adhesion and film integrity
  • Can also be used for binding pigment solids for various effects and surfaces
  • Unlike the other GOLDEN Mediums and Gels, GAC Acrylic Polymers have only a minimum amount of thickeners, levelers, defoamers and surfactants to ensure good film formation
  • GAC 800 Acrylic A liquid acrylic polymer emulsion that does not craze in pours/puddles
  • That is to say that it dries with the same uniform surface and dimensional integrity as when wet (other GACs will craze, developing shrinkage crevices running across the surface)
  • Dries with good gloss and flexibility, but only moderate clarity
  • Useful to increase adhesion to chalky surfaces

Golden GAC 900 8oz Cynlinder (Heat Set) — GD3990-5

  • Golden GAC 900 Acrylic Polymer is very fluid and thinner than other Golden Mediums
  • Since they do not have thickeners added, these polymers will reduce the thickness of most Golden Acrylic Paints
  • Golden Fluid Acrylics are slightly thicker than the GACs, but will be the color line least changed in viscosity with any addition of a GAC polymer
  • Golden GAC 900 Acrylic Polymer is a liquid acrylic polymer emulsion which when heat-set offers a very soft hand and laundering stability
  • Useful to artists painting on clothing
  • GAC 900 can be blended with various acrylic colors to produce fabric paints that can be airbrush, hand brush or screen applied
  • A great addition to any collection of acrylic painting supplies or craft supplies
