Getting Cold up here

12 November, 2010 (12:51) | General

We’ve been well below freezing for quite a few weeks now up here and I’ve forgot to take in my waterborne glues and paints from the barn. The Golden Acrylics are all protected for at least 5 freeze thaw cycles, but eventually the regular thawing and freezing will coagulate the acrylic making it into a cottage cheese consistancy. I’m sure good for some work, but typically pretty nasty stuff. So remember to take your paints out of the cold! I’ve got some moving to do this weekend……

Our studio is in the Rocky Mountain, Breckenridge, 11,000 feet. I can tell you without any doubts the paints will thaw well over 5 times and not loose any consistancy. Thanks for such great paints. Robert

Golden has always bean my top choice in acrylic paint and mediums it was an honer to get to talk with you and thank for your incuraging words.

Dear Allen, great to see you and your partners at Verge. It was wonderful to see your work. We were all exhausted by the end of the weekend, but I think it was truly worth it for everyone. 4 non-stop days of looking and talking about art with folks I really enjoy being with. Would love to visit next time I’m in Chicago and please remember that the invite is open for you anytime you get lost in Central NY. Best, Mark

My Golden paints/mediums have just withstood two of our coldest winters for many years in my attic /studio, with temps way below freezing for periods of many weeks. (Too cold for me to work in !)
When thawed they performed as usual . Very impressive.
