FolkArt Color Shift FAQ

No, direct mixing of FolkArt Color Shift Acrylic Paint with other paint products will compromise the color, finish and ability to shift colors. However, a sheen story could be created by layering a matte paint directly over a section of FolkArt Color Shift OR basecoat paint a matte finish then add a large color blocked section over the matte basecoat, perhaps even layer a large stencil design.
 
Yes, FolkArt Color Shift Acrylic Paint can be used in basic decorating painting techniques, however, it works best when painted on larger sized areas rather than incorporating it on smaller detailed brushstrokes.
 
No, although FolkArt Color Shift Acrylic Paint is water-based, the use of water to thin the paint is not recommended as it will reduce the adhesion properties of the paint.
 
Yes, once cured in the oven, glassware painted with Color Shift can be washed by hand and or in the top shelf of the dishwasher without chipping, cracking, or fading. Do not soak in water.

Absolutely. FolkArt Color Shift Acrylic Paint is formulated so that it can be used on interior surfaces as well as a permanent outdoor paint. By the nature of the acrylic polymers used to make FolkArt Color Shift, it is weather resistant.  When cured to the surface, it is self-sealing, making it unnecessary to seal or topcoat, when properly cured (48 hours). Once cured to the project surface, it is water and fade resistant under normal conditions.
