How do I use Floating Medium in the One Stroke™ Technique?
FolkArt® Floating Medium (#868) helps paint flow more smoothly, thus aiding your brush strokes. It should be used when you are painting on any surface that is not slick. It's especially helpful when painting on walls. Use this medium for painting shadows or for watercolor effects.
  1. Squeeze a puddle of Floating Medium on your palette.
  2. Load brush with paint first, as instructed.
  3. Dip the tips of the bristles of the loaded brush straight down in the puddle of Floating Medium.
  4. Stroke the brush on palette 2 - 3 times, and you're ready to paint.
What is the best way to support my fabric project while painting my design?
Placing a wax paper or plastic wrapped cardboard form behind the area to be painted will not only give you a sturdy surface on which to paint, you will also protect the back or additional layers of your project. You may also find it helpful to tape a piece of fine grade sandpaper to the cardboard form; this will keep your fabric from shifting while painting.
Can I use photographs with Mod Podge?
We do not recommend using original photographs. Have a color copy made with a dry toner copier before applying Mod Podge.
Do I need to add a sealer for additional protection?
To further protect your painted surface, you may polish the surface with a neutral shoe polish or any type of household furniture polish. Apply following manufacturer’s instructions.
Do I need to clean my surface or window before applying Gallery Glass® Window Color™?
Yes. Prior to beginning your project, clean surface with window cleaner and dry thoroughly.
Help! I stained my needlework! What do I do?
The best way to try to remove the stain is to hand wash or soak your needlework project in a cold water/mild dish liquid detergent bath. Allow the project to soak. If desired, the project can also be slightly agitated with your fingers in the bath making sure all the soiled area is fully immersed in the soapy water. After soaking, rinse well under cool water. If necessary, repeat soaking in a fresh cool water/mild dish liquid detergent bath, then rinse well once again.

We recommend first trying to simply soak the project in cold water, mild dish liquid and vinegar (Use a mild soap like Joy or Ivory, and 1 ½ cups of vinegar for large projects. ½ cup for smaller project.) Freshen the mixture periodically. If that does not work, you can try a stain stick, but avoid anything that is detergent based.
 
How do I use the FolkArt® One Stroke™ Reusable Teaching Guides if I am left handed?
Reverse the start/end directions. Always start where it says end and end your stroke where it says start.
How is FolkArt® Outdoor™ different from Apple Barrel Gloss™?
FolkArt® Outdoor™ paints are formulated with rich and creamy consistencies in true artists palettes that deliver high hide with UV protection and weather resistance that makes this paint the perfect paint for outdoor use. It is self-sealing, no primers, sealers or varnishes are required. FolkArt® Outdoor paints can be applied on a variety of surfaces such as metal, terra cotta, wood, concrete, galvanized tin and more. It dries to a satin finish and is waterbased so clean up is easy with mild soap and water.
Apple Barrel Gloss paints offer a bright and clean color palette. They too are formulated to be weather resistant, can be used outdoors, and work well on the same types of surfaces. However, Apple Barrel Gloss paints dry with strong colors and a high gloss finish.
