No, it is not necessary to seal or varnish project surfaces painted with FolkArt Home Decor Texture Chalk; however, for heavily used surfaces such as furniture, we recommend applying two or more coats of FolkArt Home Decor Satin Varnish for added protection and enhanced durability.
No, FolkArt Home Decor Texture Chalk is for indoor use only.
Allow a minimum of 2 hours of dry time between coats, depending upon thickness of application. Once dry, FolkArt Home Decor Texture Chalk will take a minimum of 48 hours before fully cured to the surface.
No, FolkArt Home Decor Texture Chalk does not contain latex; like all other Plaid’s paint products, they’re manufactured using synthetic acrylic resins.
One 8 fl. oz. jar of paint covers approximately 15 sq. ft.; however, the amount of Texture Chalk applied and porosity of the surface will determine how much coverage can be achieved with each jar of paint.
FolkArt Home Decor Texture Chalk paint can be applied to many different types of surfaces: wood, terracotta, metal, canvas, paper mache, plaster, ceramic or glass, and even fabric. Note that fabric surfaces painted with FolkArt Home Decor Texture Chalk are not machine-washable, and glass or ceramic surfaces painted with FolkArt Home Decor Texture Chalk cannot be washed in the dishwasher; such surfaces should be used as for decorative purposes only and lightly cleaned using a damp cloth only when needed.
Once heat-set, a project painted with Fabric Creations Plush paints can be machine-laundered on the gentle cycle; however, to preserve the life and durability of your decorated fabric, it is always best to hand-wash in cold water and allow to air-dry.
