Additives serve a similar function to mediums. The difference is that additives don't contain acrylic binders (like mediums do) so you must follow the label and use them in correct proportions. Most mediums can be added to the paint in any amount until you've the achieved the desired effect, but it's possible for additives to weaken the color and adhesion of the paint when overused. Golden offers these two additives which are an effective addition to any painters experience.

Acrylic Flow Release - an additive used to reduce surface tension of the water in the acrylic emulsion, thereby increasing the slickness and flow of the paint. It is effective for achieving rich stains on a porous surface. Not for use by children.


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

Retarder does not contain binding agents. To ensure adhesion, it is recommended that the addition of Retarder not exceed 15% (1:6)when mixed with colors or mediums.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary Additive When you paint with acrylics, to keep them wet and workable, retarder becomes a vital additive in achieving a more successful work in progress. I also use retarder as a glazing method and it works fantastic for that. In terms of pricing, you cannot beat the prices at Jerry's anywhere, not even considering the convenience of a purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect product! Was introduced to Golden’s Retarder in an art class I started taking this past fall. I can’t live without it now! Keeps acrylic paints I am working with wetter and pliable for longer periods of time. Who knew glazing could be done so effortlessly using Retarder! Simple to use....convenient sizes for at home use or on the go use. Have purchased this a couple of times now and plan on this being a part of my everyday paint and art kit!
