Are FolkArt Enamels really dishwasher-safe?
Yes, you can wash your painted pieces with FolkArt Enamels in the dishwasher without chipping, cracking, or fading after first curing it in the oven by following the directions below:
  1. Allow painted item to dry for 24 hours to be sure all layers of paint have dried.
  2. Place project in a cool oven, as the glass must heat gradually with the oven to avoid breakage; do not place glass in a hot oven.
  3. Set oven temperature to 350ºF.
  4. Once temperature has reached 350ºF, allow the project to bake for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and let glass cool down completely before removing from the oven.
  6. Do not use for 72 hours.
In addition, using the Clear Medium over your design will help ensure the longevity of your painting. Learn more on curing painted glass projects.
Are FolkArt Pure Artist Pigments lightfast or fade resistant?
Whether a paint color is lightfast indicates the resistance a hue has to changing when exposed to light.  In other words, lightfastness can be equated to whether a color is fade resistant.  On each bottle label, you will find a key to indicate the lightfastness of that color.
✱✱✱ Good
✱✱ Better
✱ Best (most lightfast)
Can FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint be used on outdoor surfaces?
Yes, FolkArt Brush Lettering Paint can be used on outdoor surfaces; however, make sure to seal the project once dried and cured. Otherwise, the metallic finishes will tarnish and become dull when exposed to outdoor elements.
Can FolkArt Dragonfly Glaze be mixed with other paint products?
No, direct mixing of FolkArt Dragonfly Glaze with other paint products will compromise the color, finish and ability to shift colors. However, you can create a sheen story by layering a matte acrylic paint over sections of Dragonfly Glaze, or by applying Dragonfly Glaze over sections of the surface rather than creating an overall finish.
Can FolkArt Milk Paint be used on outdoor surfaces?
No, FolkArt Milk Paint is formulated for indoor surfaces only.
Can FolkArt Pouring Medium be used with FolkArt Pouring Paints?
No, direct mixing of FolkArt Pouring Medium with FolkArt Pouring Paint is not necessary as FolkArt Pouring Paints are already premixed with the necessary amount of Pouring Medium and no mixing is required. NOTE: FolkArt Pouring Paint (paint that does not need to be mixed with Pouring Medium) can, however, be used as one of the desired colors  when creating a fluid art project along with FolkArt Acrylic Paints (that do need to be mixed with Pouring Medium.)
Can FolkArt® Extreme Glitter be applied both horizontally and vertically?
Yes, you can apply FolkArt® Extreme Glitter both horizontally and vertically. Extreme Glitter will not run or drip if applied correctly.
Can FolkArt® Outdoor™ be used with other paint products?
No, mixing FolkArt® Outdoor™ with other paint polymers will compromise the color, durability and other key features of the paint.
Water should not be used with FolkArt® Outdoor™. Adding water will interfere with the durability and paint adhesion properties.
