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.

The consistency of the GAC polymers 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. Each GAC product represents a unique polymer that offers certain specific attributes. Therefore, each GAC will have its own unique benefits and applications. 

  • GAC 100 - Universal acrylic polymer.
  • GAC 200 - Promotes adhesion and film hardness.
  • GAC 400 - Stiffens textile fibers.
  • GAC 500 - Extends fluid acrylics.
  • GAC 700 - Clear-sealing poymer.
  • GAC 800 - Reduces crazing.
  • GAC 900 - Fabric painting medium.

Golden GAC Mediums is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GAC 800 reduces crazing As with all Golden products, GAC 800 does exactly as it is described. Used according to direction (10:1 GAC to paint) it does reduce crazing in pouring acrylic paint. However, to be practical and save money, you can increase the paint ratio to probably 3:1 and still obtain great results. I recommend GAC 800 to use in your acrylic pouring efforts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full coverage Sealing a wood panel with perfection. Easy to control the application and flow since the consistency is not too think or too thin. Drying time quick and ready to apply primer in a day. Love this product. I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pouring Medium I have used GAC 800 as a pouring medium for over a year now. It works excellently. Dries clear and prevents cracking with thick pours. With larger work buying a pouring medium in gallon size is the most cost effective way. GAC 800 in the gallon size is less expensive than Liquitex and more importantly it comes in a jug that's easier to dispense from than the Paint Can that Liquitex comes in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I think I am now on my second gallon of GAC 800. It is wonderful, especially if you are pouring your acrylics! It helps so that now I no longer get cracks when I pour or paint too thick! It is a must have in my book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Products I used for years. A great products for oil paintings. Using on raw canvas one cote GAC-400 to seal the canvas and two coats of GAC-100 take five to seven days between the coats to dried.Make excellent finish it's little more work but result is excellent finish.

    • The GAC 100 is a useful polymer for protecting against Support Induced Discoloration (S.I.D.).
    • The most flexible with a moderate level of tack and gloss.
    • Useful for diluting and extending colors, especially when film flexibility and integrity are important characteristics.
    • Wets pigment surfaces well. The most ideal for artists formulating their own paints.

  • LPP Lowest Price - This item is already at the Best Lowest Price Possible and no further discounts or coupons can be applied.
    • The hardest and least flexible of any Golden Acrylic product. Caution is advised when using this product alone.
    • Used in its pure form, it is limited to applications on rigid supports, as its lack of flexibility may lead to cracking when flexed. Under certain conditions, the medium alone may crack upon drying.
    • Ideal as an additive to acrylic paints to increase film hardness and reduce dry film tack.
    • Improves adhesion to non-porous surfaces; however some surfaces, such as glass and glazed tile, will not allow for a permanent bond.
    • Dries with high gloss and excellent film clarity.
    • Promotes cleaner edges of hard-edge techniques. The harder paint film has less "pull" as the masking tape is removed.

    • Unique balance of film hardness and flexibility.
    • Mix 2 parts GAC 500 to 1 part Airbrush Transparent Extender to produce a good spraying, fast-drying isolation coat.
    • Beneficial as an additive for acrylic paints for increasing mar resistance and decreasing dry film tack, without disturbing the balance between hardness and flexibility.
    • Useful when working on flexible or rigid supports.
    • Offers a self leveling working quality.
    • Dries to high gloss film with good clarity/transparency.
    • Useful to hard-edge painters to seal masking tape for cleaner edges. Apply over masking tape. Let dry before applying additional paint layer.

Product Badge:
  • LPP Lowest Price - This item is already at the Best Lowest Price Possible and no further discounts or coupons can be applied.
    • Most useful as an additive for acrylic paints when pours/puddles are desired to dry with the same film thickness and smoothness as when wet. Most acrylics will craze, which is the formation of valleys that run through a pour/puddle nullifying the uniformity of the film. Such crazing is the result of shrinkage forces exerted during the drying process. GAC 800 stands alone in its resistance to such film discontinuity.
    • Dries with good gloss and film flexibility, but with a slight "hazy" quality.
    • Useful as a modifier when adhesion to chalky surfaces is desired.
