FolkArt Enamels FAQ

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.
No, thinning FolkArt Enamels with water compromises the integrity of the paint formula and will prevent the paint from properly adhering to your glass surface. 
  1. Clean glass or glazed ceramics with alcohol.
  2. Shake paint before applying.
  3. Paint design. For best results use Clear Medium over your design to help ensure there is enough paint for the design to properly adhere to your surface. Do not wet paintbrush with water. To change colors while painting, use a paper towel and pull out excess paint.
  4. For best results, cure your project in the oven by following the steps 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.

Cautions:
  • Do not use in direct contact with food.
  • Do not paint within 4/5” of top rim of glasses or mugs.
  • Reverse painting on the back of glass plates is recommended if plate is to be used with food.
  • Do not apply Clear Medium to the entire surface as streaks may appear. Only apply Clear Medium over your design.
  • Items painted are not microwavable.
FolkArt Enamels dry to a translucent to opaque finish. However, if you’d like to create a more transparent look, combine one part FolkArt Enamels with one part FolkArt Clear Medium. Paint as normal.
