Is it necessary to seal or varnish FolkArt Marbling Paint?

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.

What are FolkArt® Shinys?
FolkArt® Shinys are a line of high gloss paints that are heavily pigmented just like the original FolkArt® Acrylics. They were created to allow consumers to achieve a “shiny” finish without applying a varnish or sealer.

Does FolkArt Color Pouring Medium hold up well on outdoor surfaces?
No, FolkArt Pouring Medium 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 Pouring Medium mixed with FolkArt acrylic paints, the completed project should be varnished with an outdoor varnish such as FolkArt Outdoor Sealers available in Matte, Satin or Gloss finishes.
Does my surface need to be primed before I use the FolkArt® Shinys?
FolkArt® Shinys can be applied to unprimed porous surfaces, however, painting on a primed surface will reduce the number of coats required for a shiny finish. The initial coat on an unprimed surface may not appear shiny because the paint is absorbed into the surface. The shine or gloss appearance builds with additional coats.
Do the FolkArt® Shinys stick to each other after they have cured?
Yes, FolkArt® Shinys will stick to each other after they have cured. Any paint with a gloss finish will stick to itself. To prevent sticking, apply a coat of FolkArt® Outdoor Varnish.
Do I need to seal Martha Stewart Crafts ® Liquid Gilding?
Once thoroughly dry, projects should be sealed with Martha Stewart Crafts Gloss Enamel Finish Spray for protection and to maintain tarnish-resistance. Very lightly spray surface and allow 60 seconds before spraying a medium application to seal; let dry.
Can I use any paint over Martha Stewart Crafts ® Magnetic Paint Effect?
Yes. You can use satin, high gloss, metallic, pearl, or glitter paint. Brush or spray on using the Martha Stewart Crafts Spray Paint Kit and appropriate spray medium.
My Mod Podge surface is still sticky after it dries. What do I do?
Hard Coat Mod Podge dries clear with a non-tacky surface. If using Gloss, Matte or Satin Mod Podge apply a clear acrylic sealer to the surface after it has cured 4 weeks.
