No, FolkArt Glitterific Paint cannot be cured permanently to glass or ceramic surfaces, nor are these surfaces hand-washable or dishwasher-safe. Glassware and glazed ceramics decorated with Glitterific should be used for decorative purposes only.
No, direct mixing of FolkArt Glitterific Paint with other paint products is not recommended, as it will compromise the color, the finish, and the glittery effect of the paint.
Yes, FolkArt Glitterific Paints can be intermixed with one another to create a new and different glitter mixture. Mixing small quantities at a time, simply pour small amounts of each color to be mixed onto a palette. Using a palette knife, mix one color into the other until the desired color ratio of glitter particles has been achieved.
Like painting on glassware or glazed ceramics, FolkArt Glitterific can be painted on a fabric surface, most definitely. However, it should be created as a decorative purpose only project. Unfortunately, FolkArt Glitterific Paint will dry as a brittle film that is not flexible. When painting on fabric, Glitterific can be painted on a decorative pillow or other home décor fabric surface, one that will be used for decoration only and is not intended to be washed. Therefore, pre-washing and no heat setting is required. Simply paint the fabric surface, do not heat set and do not launder.
No, thinning Glitterific is not recommended, as it compromises the opacity of the glitter particles and may also impact the adhesive properties of the paint.
No, FolkArt Glitterific Paint is formulated for indoor-use only and should not be used on outdoor surfaces.
Depending on the thickness of application, Glitterific cures to a surface after approximately 24 hours.
Glitterific dries to the touch within two hours; however, the paints may take longer to dry when using heavier applications of paint or working in a high humidity area.
Clean your brushes while wet with mild soap and water.
Glitterific Paint does not require much surface prep; make sure to have cleaned your project surface thoroughly before applying.
No, projects painted on glassware or glazed ceramics using FolkArt Glitterific Paints are not dishwasher safe, nor should they be immersed in water. These surfaces should be used for decorative purposes only.

No, it is not necessary to seal projects created using FolkArt Glitterific. If desired, project surfaces can be sealed using a glossy sealer—such as FolkArt Acrylic Lacquer Gloss Finish or FolkArt Artists’ Varnish Gloss—for extra protection.
Many surfaces can be decorated with FolkArt Glitterific Paint: wood, papier mache, paper or cardstock, canvas, metal, rigid plastics, terra cotta, glassware, ceramics and fabric. Note, however, FolkArt Glitterific Paints will not be permanent on glassware, ceramic, rigid plastic and fabric surfaces and therefore should be used for decorative purposes only.
Glitterific should be applied to a surface using either a Taklon bristle brush or a foam applicator. The best application technique is to “lay” the paint onto the surface without excessive brushing or stroking of the applicator tool.
FolkArt Glitterific Paint is a high quality acrylic paint that contains multiple sized glitter particles suspended in a crystal clear base—perfect for those crafters and DIYers who LOVE the sparkle and pizzazz of glitter. Glitterific provides a dazzling, glittery coverage surpassed by no other glitter paint available on the market.
Apply Glitterific to a surface using either a foam sponge brush or a soft Taklon bristle brush. After loading the brush with Glitterific paint, position the brush horizontally low to the surface. While lightly brushing the surface, “lay” the paint down. Try not over-brush or over-stroke the surface, as doing so will move the glitter particles around.
For more reflective effects, FolkArt Glitterific Paint should be applied over a surface base-coated with a dark color. Use either FolkArt Acrylic Paints or FolkArt Multi-Surface Paints to basecoat the surface with either Licorice, Pure Black, or a dark color that is similar to the glitter color. For amazing glitter effects, apply multiple coats for maximum glitter coverage.
FolkArt Glitterific Paint is loaded with glitter particles of multiple sizes and unique color combinations, providing the ultimate glitter display on most surfaces.
