Although FolkArt Watercolor Acrylic Paint dries to the touch very quickly, it will take approximately 48 hours before it is cured to the surface.
A standard brushstroke painted on a porous surface will be dry to the touch within approximately 25 minutes and completely dried within an hour, depending on the amount of water used to dilute the paint. On sealed surfaces, the same standard brushstroke painted on a will be dry to the touch usually within two hours. Actual dry times can vary based on the application of paint and the humidity of the work environment.
FolkArt Watercolor is formulated as a gel-based acrylic paint that can easily be spread or brushed out very smoothly when used as a concentrate. It can also be diluted with water to create soft painted wet effects with varying layers of color.
Many surfaces can be decorated with FolkArt Watercolor Acrylic Paint, such as wood, papier mache, paper, glass, canvas, and fabric. On sealed surfaces such as glassware, ceramics, tin, metal, and plastic, FolkArt Watercolor should be used for decorative purposes only.
Projects created using FolkArt Marbling Paints MUST be sealed. Project surfaces can be spray sealed using FolkArt Acrylic Lacquers (Matte, Satin, or Gloss Finishes) or brushed with FolkArt Artists’ Varnish (Satin or Gloss).
Note: Before storing finished marbled projects, surfaces should be sealed to keep projects from sticking to one another.
FolkArt Marbling dries to the touch within one hour and will be completely dry within 24 hours; however, variables such as the type of surface being marbled, the thickness of paint application and the humidity of the work area will all affect the individual drying time of each marbled project.
