How are FolkArt Pure Artist Pigments different from FolkArt Acrylics?
FolkArt Pure Artist Pigments are compared to FolkArt Acrylics in that they are both acrylic, water-based paint formulas.  However, the paints differ in their consistencies, dry times, cure times, pigments, and overall paint formula.

Painting with FolkArt Pure Artist Pigments on most porous surfaces will not require a lot of surface preparation.  We suggest that your surface is thoroughly cleaned prior to painting.
  • Canvas – No preparation is required prior to painting on a stretched canvas as it already has been primed with Gesso.
