Gaffrey’s Heavy Texture acrylic paint is unlike anything you’ve ever seen from your regular heavy body acrylics. We like to think of them as texture acrylics that blur the boundaries between painting and sculpting.

This professional-grade artist paint is incredibly thick, buttery smooth, and heavily saturated with pure pigments, making it more like the consistency of an ultra heavy gel medium – on steroids. Formulated with 100% acrylic emulsion and pure pigments, our signature heavy body acrylic paint contains no fillers or toxic additives and is completely waterproof when dry (seriously, you can see a video of Justin hosing down one of his paintings on Instagram).

Create uniquely textured paintings by carving into the pigment-rich colors with knives, brushes, and other tools without additional thickening mediums. You can even use traditional piping techniques with our piping tips to get something really different.

Our acrylics work in unison with the full range of Gaffrey products. Mix and match textures and tools to evoke a sense of liveliness and depth in your artwork that only our products can accomplish.

Gold Heavy Texture Acrylic Paint

•Pigment Classification: Naturally Occurring Inorganic
•Color Index Number: N/A
•Opacity/Transparency: Opaque
•Sheen: Glossy
•Chemical Description: Ferric Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Mica
•Pigment Description: Glimmering sheen of bright gold from mica particles

Notes: This luxurious paint closely resembles 14k gold, guaranteed to turn heads at your next exhibit. Formulated with our Heavy Texture acrylic recipe (and a bit of magic), we have pushed the particle limits of iron and mica to their absolute thresholds to bring you a shimmering metallic gold sculpting paint. As the liquid Gold dries, it transfigures from a lighter color into a bright yellow gold, so plan ahead for this magical effect. Mix the Gold Heavy Texture with our Medium Viscosity colors to create unbelievable color combinations that flash and flip in the light. Just like the real thing, our Gold acrylic is quite rare. So, rush to collect this precious paint before it’s gone!

How long does it take to dry?

Dry times are based on the amount of paint used, temperatures, and humidity levels. You will notice the paint film forming after 30-60 minutes and the paint will be tacky to the touch. Once the paint film is set, the paint will take several days to a week to fully dry. Lower temperature and higher humidity levels will extend the dry time. Constant airflow from a fan will speed up the drying process, as will access to the underside of the canvas or board.

Does your paint crack?

On its own will not crack. Our formula is designed to be flexible and durable once dry. Certain factors may cause the paint to crack; such as diluting with water, mixing paints or mediums from other brands, applying the texture to uneven surfaces or canvas, adding too much medium viscosity colors, and extreme temperatures.

Do I need to varnish over the texture areas?

Varnish is optional. Our acrylics are archival quality and adding a varnish is up to the artist's preference. We currently do not offer varnishes so exercise caution when using from other brands. We are not responsible for the effects a varnish may have on your artwork if it causes unwanted effects.

What does the paint look like once dry?

Our heavy texture acrylics have a glossy finish that looks the same wet to dry in most cases. All acrylic paints will dry slightly darker due to the milky color of acrylic emulsion when wet. Shrinkage will occur once the water content evaporates from the paint. These effects are normal and hardly noticeable.

What surfaces can I paint on?

Wood panels are preffered due to their rigidity. This keeps your artwork's integrity intact.

Acrylics will adhere to most surfaces. With our paints, if it sticks, it fits.

How to use

Step 1

Hold the bag horizontally and simply snip off the end. We recommend cutting at least half an inch for general purpose.

Step 2

At a slight angle, twist the back-end and apply some pressure. The bag will be taught and plump.

Step 3

Use your hand to guide the flow of paint at the opening and use your dominant hand to squeeze with ample pressure.

Step 4

Cover the bottom of a palette knife with one of our Mid-Viscosity acrylic colors. Lightly glaze the knife over the Heavy Texture for a variegated effect or mix thoroughly for an opaque color

Step 5

Pinch the opening of the piping bag to remove a little bit of paint. Secure the bag with one of our gaffrey bag clips to store for later use.

That's it! Get to paintin'

Our Heavy Texture acrylics are fully comaptible with all acrylics. Make your work more dynamic using simple palette knife and piping bag techniques.

Love it!

This is the first time I buy Gaffrey Gold Heavy Texture Acrylic Paint. Just curious of how it worked, took a small amount and let it dry. It is spectacular the light that reflects and of course, the texture of it is dreamy! Here is my test of the paint with direct and undirect light.

The gold heavy texture acrylic paint is incredible to work with, both on its own and blended with other paints. Super-rich color!

YOU GOTTA LOVE SOM METALLIC AND SPARKLE IN YOUR HEAVY TEXTURE PAINT …and here I thought the silver was fab but the GOLD? ITS EVEN BETTER! Thanks for all of your work in creating these paints! They are game changers!!❤️❤️❤️

michael bassett
Absolutely amazing

I cannot get over how awesome this stuff is. I used an entire bag on one piece of art so I need to order some more now. I was a bit hesitant at first as the paint looks almost like an orange-ish salmon color in the bag, but when it dries it is absolutely stunning. Bright, metallic, and vibrant gold.

Erynne Fellinger
Beautiful paint color

This gold is seriously the best. I love the thickness of the paint for my specific style of art and this color is basically the perfect shade of gold.
