Reduce surface tension and increase paint flow

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 achieved the desired effect, but additives can weaken the color and adhesion of the paint when overused. GOLDEN offers these two additives, which are a useful addition to any painters studio. Wetting Agent is an additive used to reduce the surface tension of the water in an acrylic emulsion, thereby increasing the slickness and flow of the paint. GOLDEN Retarder is an additive used to increase the open (drying) time of acrylic paints. Useful for wet on wet techniques and reducing skinning on the palette.

Key Features:
  • Increase open time
  • Reduce the surface tension of acrylic emulsion
  • Improve the slickness and flow of paint
  • No acrylic binders
  • Use them in correct proportions
Perfect For:
  • Acrylic painting
  • Minimizing paint waste
  • Classroom, home, and studio
  • Teachers and students
  • All acrylic-friendly surfaces

  • GOLDEN Acrylic Additive 4 oz Wetting Aid


    Wetting Aid (formerly known as Wetting Agent) is a concentrated additive used to reduce the surface tension of the water in acrylic emulsion, thereby increasing the slickness and flow of the paint. It is useful for achieving rich stains on a porous surface. The new formula is safer and is also less likely to be accidentally over-used by artists (overuse in the old version of Wetting Agent could cause paint to remain tacky, among other issues).


    Directions: Always dilute with water before use. Do not use alone or as a painting medium. Dilutions can be added directly to paint or used to pre-wet canvas or paper to increase staining or spread.


    Dilution: Add 1/4 fl, oz. to 8 fl, oz. of water, 1 fl, oz. to 1-quart water, or 4 fl, oz. to 1-gallon water. Aggressive shaking, stirring, or brushing may cause foaming. Overuse may result in tacky and water-sensitive surfaces.


    Not for use by children. Eye Irritant. Inhalation of Spray Mist Harmful. DO NOT SPRAY APPLY
