Thinning GOLDEN Fluid Acrylics for Spraying


GOLDEN Fluid Acrylics can easily be made to spray and offer a larger palette of color choices compared to GOLDEN Airbrush colors. Some pigments will spray better than others, Organic Pigments Also called synthetic pigment are tiny particles and shouldn’t clog the airbrush. Inorganic pigments Or mineral pigments are gritty Irregular rocks and should not be used in fine air brushes where detail is needed. Unlike thicker paints Fluid acrylics won’t require any pre-dilution with water. Simply pour some paint into a container, and then add an equal amount of GOLDEN Airbrush medium with the paint. Stir the mixture until homogenous, the paint should spray easily and produce uniform gradations of color.

    Has anyone tried this through an atomizer?

    Unfortunately no. However we have worked with some other devices, such as air pump spray bottles or a Preval Spraygun. Do a search on the internet if you don't know this last product. Very inexpensive yet does a decent job.

    After you mixed the golden liquid acrylics with the airbrush medium, can they still be kept in a closed container? Like if you mixed a color for later use.

    @JustWonderingHowToDo The very simple answer is 'yes!' Might not hurt to gently stir things before use if it is stored a long time, but otherwise nothing wrong in keeping premixed colors.

    don't these paints say not to spray apply them on the back? is that just a general disclaimer that you guys have to put on there?

    @skatewhabitat – our recommendation is that you avoid inhalation from spraying (you should wear a mask when spraying any paint). The colors we do not recommend for spraying (like the cadmium colors) are not available in a fluid formulation.

    @startazz — sorry for the delay in response. Our Airbrush Acrylic colors are designed to be used full-strength in most airbrushes and should work great. This video is to help people who already have our Fluid Colors, which are significantly higher viscosity than our Airbrush Colors, prepare them for use in an airbrush. Airbrush colors will be OK straight from the bottle.

    Hello, how much Airbrush Medium should I use to create a “transparent look” with my regular high flow paints for airbrushing? (EX: Lets say Id like to spray “mist”)…..

    Will the paints still work with water in a spray gun?
