Does FolkArt Pre-Mixed Pouring Paint hold up well on outdoor surfaces?
No, FolkArt Pre-Mixed Pouring Paint should be used on indoor surfaces only as it is not designed to be permanent outdoor without an outdoor sealer or varnish applied.  When decorating an outdoor surface with FolkArt Pre-Mixed Pouring Paint, the completed project should be varnished with an outdoor varnish such as FolkArt Outdoor Sealers available in Matte, Satin or Gloss finishes.
How should I prepare my surfaces before painting with FolkArt Milk Paint?
Preparation depends on the surface. Read more to learn how to prepare unfinished (raw) wood, finished wood, walls, metal, concrete, and masonry.
  • Unfinished Wood – FolkArt Milk Paint is best applied directly to unfinished, raw wood. T Sand any rough areas using a medium-to-fine grit sandpaper. Wipe with a tack cloth to remove sanding dust.
  • Finished Wood – Finished wood surfaces would include previously painted or varnished surfaces. These surfaces are best cleaned with a household glass cleaner to remove dirt and grease and then brushed with a coat of FolkArt Milk Paint Bonding Primer & Sealer. Allow the primer to thoroughly dry (approximately four hours); then apply FolkArt Milk Paint.
  • Walls – Prepare your walls first by cleaning them to remove dust or grease. Clean areas of chipped or peeling paint. Slightly sand the walls to allow for better paint adhesion if walls were previously painted with semi-gloss or gloss finishes.
  • Metal – Wash all new metal surfaces in warm soapy water; allow to thoroughly dry. Moisten a paper towel or soft cloth with distilled white vinegar and wipe over surface; allow to dry. Brush on an application of FolkArt Milk Paint Bonding Primer & Sealer. Allow primer to thoroughly dry.
  • Concrete and Masonry – Apply a coat of white vinegar (to neutralize lime), allow to dry, rinse, and then allow to dry thoroughly. NOTE: FolkArt Milk Paint is not recommended for concrete areas subject to foot traffic such as a patio. FolkArt Milk Paint decorated concrete and masonry surfaces should be kept as indoor only decorative surfaces.

How do I apply paper napkins to surfaces?
  1. Cut the design out of the Napkin and separate the layers.; you want to use only the top layer of the Napkin.

  2. Using the Glue Brush, apply a coat of Mod Podge® Gloss, Matte or Sparkle Finish to the surface area where the Napkin will be applied. Let dry slightly – until it’s slightly sticky – then place the Napkin on the surface and press it down gently with your fingertips. The Napkin should not become wet. (If it does, you applied too much Mod Podge; apply a lighter coat next time.) Let dry.

  3. To finish, apply a second coat of Mod Podge® and apply it beginning in the middle and gently brushing out to the edges.

  4. Alternately, you may apply Mod Podge® to the area and let it dry completely (to speed up drying, you may use a hairdryer set on low). Then place the Napkin onto the surface in the desired position. Cover the Napkin with a piece of parchment paper and iron (on the cotton setting) to adhere the Napkin to the surface. Allow the parchment paper to cool and then remove. The Mod Podge® will melt and adhere the image to the surface. The advantage of this technique is that you can move the image until you iron it down. Also, the Napkin will not tear or show bubbles, and it will be completely flat like the surface it is on. Again, finish with a coat of Mod Podge® on top.
