Golden Paint night at Focus Art

Every first Wednesday of each month, Focus Art Group here in town has it's meeting. Tonight was a special presentation by the rep (who is also a "working artist") from Golden Paints! Her name was Andrea Warren and she gave a great presentation on Golden paints, the mediums and pastes, and the new digital medium transfer products. Andrea also gave a great talk on the new Open Acrylics and Fluid Acrylics! I really enjoyed it! Each chair had a very informative and packed folder on their products with large hand painted colour charts. At the end, she gave each one of us a sample package with:

- a 2 oz jar of Soft Gel (Gloss)
- a 2 oz jar of Light Molding Paste
- a 1 oz jar of regular acrylic paint in Cobalt Teal
- a small 15 ml bottle of Fluid Acrylic in Green Gold
- 3 x 8ml packages of Open Acrylics (alizarin crimson, phthalo blue and titanium white)

How great is that?! Thank you so much Andrea and Golden Paint for the very informative night and the great sample pack!

Can't wait to try these out!
