Included in the promotion are four different Williamsburg Oil sets and two QoR Watercolor Sets

An adjusted promotional MAP of up to 40% off is active on these products beginning October 4, 2021 and continuing through December 31, 2021

PB60 Returns in GOLDEN High Flow Acrylics

Our supplier for PB60 has finally resumed manufacturing the grade of pigment we utilize in our paints.  As a result, we have begun manufacturing items that utilize this pigment and will begin turning them back on as inventory becomes available.  The first two items to enter production are both from our High Flow Acrylics line and are Indigo (#8522) and Permanent Violet Dark (#8536).  Both of these items are expected to be available again in early October.

B-T-S Promotional Period Reminder (MAP)

The last date for additional promotional advertising for BTS is October 1, 2021. Please revert to the maximum 30% off MAP beginning October 2.

“Breaking Glass” – How to varnish a watercolor painting on paper using GOLDEN Archival Varnishes

This new video details the products and applications techniques required to varnish your watercolor painting and present it without glass while providing the same level of protection from UV light and environmental conditions as museum glass. This new technique allows artists to protect their work without the barrier between the viewer and the work that glass creates.
