Do I need to use a sealer over FolkArt® Shinys?
No, sealers are not necessary when using FolkArt® Shinys. They were developed as a self-sealing acrylic paint. FolkArt® Outdoor Varnish will improve weather resistance if a project will be in the elements.
Do the FolkArt® Shinys stick to each other after they have cured?
Yes, FolkArt® Shinys will stick to each other after they have cured. Any paint with a gloss finish will stick to itself. To prevent sticking, apply a coat of FolkArt® Outdoor Varnish.
Does my surface need to be primed before I use the FolkArt® Shinys?
FolkArt® Shinys can be applied to unprimed porous surfaces, however, painting on a primed surface will reduce the number of coats required for a shiny finish. The initial coat on an unprimed surface may not appear shiny because the paint is absorbed into the surface. The shine or gloss appearance builds with additional coats.
How are FolkArt® Shinys different from FolkArt® Outdoor?
Both FolkArt® Shinys and FolkArt® Outdoor use the same acrylic polymers. The difference between the two is the finish. FolkArt® Shinys have a glossy finish and FolkArt® Outdoor has a satin finish.
How can I increase the amount of shine on my FolkArt® Shiny project?
To increase the amount of shine on a project, apply multiple coats of FolkArt® Shiny. If still a higher gloss is still desired, apply FolkArt® Gloss Varnish after paint is dry.
How do I apply FolkArt® Shinys?
FolkArt® Shinys may be applied using a soft brush, roller or sponge applicator.
How do I clean up after using FolkArt® Shinys?
FolkArt® Shinys should be cleaned up while wet with soap and water.
How do the FolkArt® Shinys compare to the Liquitex Glossies?
FolkArt® Shinys were developed for use on wood and most other porous surfaces. They are not for use on glass and ceramics like the Liquitex Glossies. Plaid developed FolkArt® Enamels for use on glass and ceramics.
