Seeing is believing
You'd think we had to get hit on the head with a rock to recognize that if we provided visual artists with visual tools, we'd probably make our efforts to share information much easier. Well now we think we've got something to more closely meet your needs and desires. Due to requests from consumers, GOLDEN has begun creating technical videos that cover many of the common product questions the company's Technical Services Department receives on a regular basis. The power of video allows complex topics to be explained quickly and clearly with minimal subjective interpretation. GOLDEN is committed to producing a substantial number of videos covering many diverse technical questions. Below is a list of the videos currently available, along with short descriptions of content.
Each video can be found on the www.goldenpaints.com Web site in the "Technical Info" section as well as on the GOLDEN Company page of www.youtube.com. Artists can download the videos or link to them using a simple cut-and-paste method from the YouTube™ video page.
