OPEN Acrylics feature uniquely relaxed working characteristics and a remarkable ability to remain wet on the palette during long painting sessions. Working time varies according to how thickly the material is applied.
Over time, thin applications will pass through several stages where the paint will begin to slowly setup and its tack increases. During this time, which can last for many hours, subsequent applications of any OPEN products or water can continue to reopen layers and allow one to continue blending and developing complex passages and fine details.
They are very versatile and can be used for techniques where acrylics are normally challenging to use including portraiture, plein air painting, monoprinting and screenprinting.
