Golden Paintworks® produces an intriguing, eclectic series of architectural Textures. As a group they are all water based, tintable, acrylic coatings but each one has its own personality and unique decorative qualities.
This acrylic plaster is applied by trowel in thin layers, then burnished by applying pressure to the trowel’s edge while drying. It contains enough Titanium Dioxide that it can be used as a “white” or very light tint, however, it can easily be tinted to mid-tone colors.
A tintable, water based, acrylic paste that is highly pigmented with pearlescent, mica particles available in either a Pearl Base or Gold Base. It produces a unique, soft, metallic sparkle with varied sheen and movement across the finished surface. Traditionally applied by trowel, the final finish requires no burnishing, or top coating, which adds to its popularity.

Metallic Textures Trending Colors
See Application Examples
A unique, acrylic texture that contains no Titanium Dioxide and can achieve very deep colors when tinted with any pre-tinted flat acrylic paint. When trowel applied, it exhibits a subtle movement of color across the surface with little to no sheen and creates dimensional ornament without cracking. Once dry, the surface allows ample hold-out for applying Glazes and Mediums to embellish the decorative finish.
Available Sizes: Quart, Gallon
Item: 000D356 | Technical Data Sheet
A light grey, tintable, acrylic texture with a sandy, slightly course, uniform, aggregate that can be left rough, or troweled smooth depending on the desired finish. When dry, it holds glazes well, yet offers time to work a colored glaze before it sets. Sandstone can be colored with paint up to 25% of its volume without affecting its working properties. A wide variety of finishes, including faux concrete can be achieved.
A unique, acrylic, ready-to-use, granite-like material that contains a crushable, colored aggregate in a warm-white base. Apply with a Plastic Trowel to retain its original color and coarseness with a peppery, grained stone finish. If applied with a Stainless Steel Trowel, the crushable aggregate can be worked by adding pressure to deepen the base color and create a subtle, variegated finish.
Glass Bead Gels
Decorative, water based, acrylic gel mediums that dry clear, and contain a high concentration of either small or XL size, clear, glass beads. The clarity allows any color underneath to show through, while the glass beads reflect light in a sparkling cascade. Glass Bead Undercoat is an opaque, white, tintable, acrylic texture with a sandy, coarse aggregate that will not crush and can be applied by trowel or roller. The sandy texture grabs the glass beads and allows for a thin, even coat of beads. For best results, apply a coat of Metallic Paint before applying the Glass Bead Gels.
At Golden Paintworks, we believe the best decorative finishes start with the best products, applied with the best tools available. That’s why we offer PAVAN trowels from Italy.
PAVAN trapezoid stainless steel trowels contain a special stainless alloy that minimizes metal abrasion. The Inox Blade has rounded corners and tapered edges with a welded, hand-friendly synthetic grip. Our PAVAN Specialty Trapezoid Plastic Trowel is made from plastic-welded and reinforced, white, Sicodur Plastic. It has straight edges, rounded corners, and the same hand-friendly synthetic grip as the Steel Trowels. Perfect for final coats that have a tendency to metal-mark. For small, tight working areas, we offer Blue Blade Spatulas, which are great for applying Venetian Plasters, especially around door jams and windows. Blued Steel prevents rusting of the blade.
