Golden SoFlat Matte Acrylic Paints


“SoFlat was formulated to make it easier for artists to create uniform fields of rich matte color in fewer layers than our other color lines. SoFlat artwork is easier to photograph and looks fantastic online.

Golden has developed a paint that helps artists create immersive fields of color without the distraction of texture and glare. The paint has a flowing consistency, offering exceptional coverage and a levelling capability as it dries. This unique combination of qualities can only be found in SoFlat Matte Acrylic Colors.

Artists have used gouache for centuries because of its matteness and opacity, 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.”

“SoFlat Matte Acrylics go down evenly with full intensity in as few coats as possible. While some pigments are naturally transparent, Golden SoFlat Matte Acrylics have a unique formulation that provides greater opacity from these colors than is normally found in acrylic paints. Most colors are opaque in one or two coats.”

“Perhaps the most distinctive quality, and the one that might be most unique to SoFlat, is the paints natural leveling quality. The paint relaxes after being brushed out, making it easier to minimize the appearance of brushstrokes for uninterrupted fields of rich matte color.”
