How are FolkArt Milk Paint Brushes different from any other brush?
FolkArt Milk Paint brushes are manufactured with 100% natural black hog bristle. Available in two 1 ¼” and 2” sizes, FolkArt Milk Paint brushes are created with flag-tip bristles which hold more paint as well as spread it more smoothly.
FolkArt Milk Paint brush bristles are filbert shaped, creating “rounded corners” which reduce hard edges and brush marks.
Should I “scrub” the FolkArt® Fabric™ Brush-on Paint into the fabric while painting?
When applying the paint, use enough brush pressure to press the FolkArt® Fabric™ Brush-on paint into the fabric, by doing this, you will increase the adhesion of the paint to the fabric.
Is FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Paint permanent on glass or ceramics?
The paint is developed with extra adhesive properties making it a perfect paint for glass painting without using a primer or sealer. To ensure extra durability, it is recommended that painted glass/ceramics be cured by baking.

How do I properly load my FolkArt Milk Paint Brush?
Whether using FolkArt Milk Paint directly on an unfinished surface or applying Folk Art Milk Paint Bonding Primer & Sealer to a project surface, load a FolkArt Milk Paint brush by dipping into the prepared bowl of milk paint or bonding primer, then wipe the bristles along the inside of the bowl to remove excess paint/primer drips.
