OPEN Acrylics are a slow-drying paint with a slightly softer consistency than heavy body paints.
The increased working time of these colors expands their range to include more traditional techniques once only possible with oils.
Thick applications can dry extremely slowly, so we recommend artists only use OPEN Colors thinly (< 1 mm).
Drying time can also be accelerated by mixing OPEN with faster-drying acrylics like the Golden Fluid and heavy body colors.
Because OPEN Acrylics dry slowly, painters who cover their palettes or use sealed containers have been able to use the same colors for weeks, reducing the amount of paint wasted and preserving color mixtures for future use.
Due to the slower drying time, and therefore longer workability, the Open Acrylics are an ideal alternative as mono/relief/collagraph printing inks.
