FolkArt Sign Shop FAQ

No, once fully dry, the paint has a no-smudge beautiful chalk effect.  As a matter of fact, if the message or design were sealed with a spray clear acrylic sealer, it would no longer be erasable and the surface could no longer be reused.  However, if the project is to be a permanent, non-changeable sign, then yes, of course, the surface can be lightly spray sealed with a clear acrylic sealer to seal and protect the design.

Yes, FolkArt Sign Shop Stencil Paste will mix well within the colors of each variety set.  Simply squeeze out a small amount of each color to be mixed. Begin by adding a small amount of the darker color into the lighter color, then continue adding small amounts of the darker color, a little at a time, until the desired color or value is achieved. It is recommended to use a palette knife to mix two or more colors when creating a custom color. 

No, FolkArt Sign Shop Multi-Surface Chalkboard Paint should not be mixed with water, mediums or other acrylic paints.  Mixing will destroy the properties that make this paint work as a chalkboard surface.

Yes, simply coat the inside of the pot with a brush-on varnish or sealer to prevent water from seeping through the terra cotta which could possibly blister the chalkboard paint.

If using a textured surface, it is possible that a raised textured surface area will prevent a FolkArt Sign Shop Mesh Stencil from making flat contact with the surface.  Therefore, there is more chance for a paint bleed or possible distortion the design.  It is advisable to select smooth surfaces when designing with FolkArt Sign Shop Mesh Stencils.
