Apple Barrel FAQ

Thinning Apple Barrel 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.
 
No, FolkArt® Shinys are not the same as Apple Barrel Gloss. FolkArt® Shinys were developed to have a higher gloss finish than Apple Barrel Gloss. Also, FolkArt® Shinys are color matched to the corresponding FolkArt® Acrylic Color and have the same high pigment load and intense color.
No, shaking Apple Barrel Marbling Medium may only introduce air bubbles into the product.  It is best not to shake before using.
 
No, Apple Barrel 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 Apple Barrel Pouring Medium mixed with Apple Barrel acrylic paints, the completed project should be varnished with an outdoor varnish such as Apple Barrel Outdoor Sealers available in Matte, Satin or Gloss finishes.
