FAQs

Can FolkArt Pouring Medium be used with FolkArt Pouring Paints?
No, direct mixing of FolkArt Pouring Medium with FolkArt Pouring Paint is not necessary as FolkArt Pouring Paints are already premixed with the necessary amount of Pouring Medium and no mixing is required. NOTE: FolkArt Pouring Paint (paint that does not need to be mixed with Pouring Medium) can, however, be used as one of the desired colors  when creating a fluid art project along with FolkArt Acrylic Paints (that do need to be mixed with Pouring Medium.)
Can FolkArt Pre-Mixed Pouring Paint be used with other paint products?
No, direct mixing of FolkArt Pre-Mixed Pouring Paint with other paint products will compromise the color, the finish as well as the ability to achieve the desired marbled effect. 
 
Can I mix two FolkArt Pre-Mixed Pouring Paints to achieve a new color or different value of the same color?
Yes, FolkArt Pre-Mixed Pouring Paints can be intermixed with one another to create a new color or different value of the same color.  To mix small amounts of color at a time, simply squeeze a small amount of paint to be mixed into a cup.  Using a spoon, stir stick, Popsicle stick, skewer or palette knife, blend a small amount of darker color into the lighter color.  Continue adding small amounts of the dark color until the desired value is achieved.  
 
Can I use water to thin FolkArt Pouring Medium?
Thinning FolkArt Pouring Medium is not necessary, as it is manufactured to the perfect consistency to create a variety of marbled effects using either the Direct Pour Method, the Dirty Pour Method, or the Flip Cup Method.
