SoFlat Matte Acrylic Sets – Golden

R1 299.00R1 549.00

Golden SoFlat Matte Acrylics are made with 100% acrylic polymers, using the finest pigments. The unique combination of low viscosity, flowing consistency, great levelling and increased opacity results in a silky-smooth paint that dries to a uniform, matte surface. The uniform matte sheen across the product line has gloss readings (Glossometer GU rating) between 0.4 and 2.8 – compared to a range of 13-100 for their Fluid Acrylics and 8-99 for their
Heavy Body Acrylics.

The flat matte surface is ideal when minimal reflectance is required, such as graphic design work, photography, and large colour field painting. SoFlat may be used similarly to traditional gouache and acrylic gouache.

SoFlat can be brushed, spray applied, used in refillable markers and more.

Product features:

  • Liquid paints formulated to dry uniformly matte.
  • Provide excellent coverage for large areas, while remaining suitable for detail painting.
  • Pigment load comparable to other GOLDEN Acrylic paints.
  • Water-resistant when dry with excellent adhesion to a variety of surfaces.
  • Most colours are rated opaque or semi-opaque, except for Fluorescent Colors.

Please note: SoFlat Fluorescent Colors are more opaque than their counterparts in other GOLDEN Acrylic paint lines.

Available sets:

  • SoFlat Pop Set of 6 x 59ml tubs of bold colours inspired by mid-century pop art and probably the best starting point and value for flat, matte painting. Colours included: Cadmium Primrose, Naphthol Red Light, Ultramarine Blue, Permanent Green, Black and Titanium White.
  • SoFlat Zing Set of 6 x 59ml tubs of bright, surprising, high-chroma and intense colour that will jump off your art. Colours included: Bismuth Vanadate Yellow, Cadmium Orange, Naphthol Pink, Red Violet, Cobalt Teal and Yellow Green.

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.
