Can FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint be used on outdoor surfaces?
Yes, FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint can be used on outdoor surfaces; however, make sure to seal the project once dried and cured. Otherwise, the metallic finishes will tarnish and become dull when exposed to outdoor elements.
Can I use FolkArt Lettering Brushes with other paints?

Yes, the FolkArt Lettering Brushes can be used with FolkArt Acrylics thinned with a touch of FolkArt Floating Medium or water.

Do I need to seal FolkArt Hand Lettering Paint?

Yes, projects using FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint should be sealed with a clear acrylic spray sealer to protect the project surface and to keep the paint’s metallic colors tarnish-resistant. After the paint has dried and cured, very lightly spray the project surface, then wait 60 seconds before spraying a medium application to seal; allow to dry completely.

How long does it take FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint to dry and cure?

FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint takes up to an hour to dry completely and takes approximately 48 hours to cure on a surface.

How should I clean my tools after using FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint?

Because FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint is solvent-based, you should clean brushes with nail polish remover, mineral spirits, or an enamel paint thinner such as xylene or toluene. After cleaning the brushes with one of the aforementioned solvent cleaners, wash the brush bristles in soap and warm water, reshape them with your fingers, and allow to dry upright.

If FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint has settled in the bottle, should it be shaken prior to using it?

Yes, before using, shake or stir Brush Lettering Paint well to mix until the color is uniform.

On what types of surfaces can I use FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint?

Many surfaces can be decorated with FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint: wood, papier mache, canvas, metal, glass, glazed ceramics, paper, and terracotta. This paint also works well on acrylic-painted or stained surfaces. Make sure to seal or basecoat porous surfaces such as plaster and bisque before applying Brush Lettering Paint. 

What are the best tools to use when lettering with FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint?
The three-brush set includes a 3 mm, 4 mm and 6 mm brush, each manufactured with long, flexible, flat-tipped synthetic bristles. The combination of the bristle length and shape makes these brushes perfect for creating smooth, clean edges when lettering. The longer bristles also hold more paint—meaning you can load your brush less frequently while you brush several letters at a time. The brush handles also have a protective coating to extend the life of each brush.
