SoFlat Matte Acrylic Colors – Golden


GOLDEN has developed a paint that helps artists create immersive fields of colour without the distraction of texture and glare. SoFlat Matte Acrylic Colors has a flowing consistency, offering exceptional coverage and a levelling capability as it dries. Artists have used gouache for centuries because it has matte and opaque qualities, but are restricted by its inherently sensitive paint film. SoFlat moves beyond these limitations, providing a velvety smooth, durable surface. The advantages of SoFlat are extended by its compatibility with other acrylic paints and mediums, increasing the range of creative effects that can be achieved.

Because it is produced using the same professional standards as all GOLDEN Acrylics and is backed by our unrivalled service and support, you can depend on the performance and consistency of these professional artist colours. While SoFlat’s flowing consistency and excellent coverage make it ideal for painting large areas, it’s also great for detail work. For a uniform, matte finish the best results can be achieved with a soft synthetic flat brush over a smooth substrate. SoFlat can be brushed, spray applied, used in refillable markers and more.

Product features:

  • Excellent opacity and coverage.
  • Natural levelling quality – paint relaxes after being brushed out, minimizing the appearance of brushstrokes.
  • Rich matte colour; glare-free surface.
  • Available in 60 colours.
  • Available in 59ml (all colours) and 118ml tubs (selected colours).

SoFlat Matte Acrylics may be applied to any surface typically able to accept acrylic paints. Smooth substrates improve uniformity. Non-porous painting supports such as glass and metal may require additional preparation to improve overall adhesion.

ALWAYS stir before use. Separation may occur in some colours, which can alter performance, evenness and sheen. For the uniform paint application, use a soft, synthetic flat brush and apply paint as evenly as possible before setting up and drying.
Unevenly applied layers, as might occur when using a coarse bristle brush, may not completely level before drying.
Adding water up to 15% to thin the paint should not significantly impact adhesion; however, higher amounts of water will cause water sensitivity.

All waterborne GOLDEN paints and mediums should blend easily with SoFlat Matte Acrylics; however, most will compromise the matte finish. We recommend GOLDEN Super Matte Medium (Item # 3531) for extending colours to retain the matte consistency of SoFlat Matte Acrylics. Adding more than 25% (3:1 paint to gel medium) will noticeably increase gloss and reduce the opacity.

To slow drying time, add GOLDEN Retarder (15% suggested maximum amount) or GOLDEN OPEN Thinner (25% suggested maximum amount) to maintain the matte quality of SoFlat Acrylics. Because these additives do not contain acrylic binders, caution should be used when adding them to paint – follow the guidelines specified on the label. Too much thinner or retarder in paint results in weaker paint layers that may also remain tacky.
GOLDEN Airbrush Medium and GOLDEN Satin Glazing Liquid may also be used with SoFlat Acrylics. Adding more than 25% medium (3:1 Paint to Medium) will increase gloss and reduce the opacity. Testing is suggested if maintaining the low sheen is critical.

Multiple Paint Layers – Additional paint layers may be applied as soon as the underlying layers are sufficiently dry. Multiple layers tend to increase gloss slightly.
Thick Applications – Product consistency dictates how thick paint layers can be. However, thicker layers are more prone to cracking as they dry. For this reason, we recommend applying multiple layers or incorporating a thick gel, such as GOLDEN Extra Heavy Gel Matte when a thick application is desired.

Products that can be blended with SoFlat Acrylics without a noticeable change of sheen:

  • Super Matte Medium.
  • Light Molding Paste.
  • Fibre Paste.
  • Pumice Gel.
  • Crackle Paste.
  • Pastel Ground.
  • Color Pouring Medium Matte.

Clean tools with soapy water immediately after use and avoid allowing the paint to dry in brushes or other tools.
