HOW TO USE CRAFTER'S ACRYLICS:
Shake well before using. Apply one well-brushed coat using a soft brush or sponge brush. Apply multiple coats when using more transparent colors. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying additional coats or varnishes.
TIPS FOR CRAFTER'S ACRYLICS:
Squirt a small amount out of the bottle at a time since acrylics dry so quickly. Masking tape applied over already-dried acrylic paint will not damage the existing paint, thus making it easier to produce a hard or sharp edge. Reusable glass or high-density plastic can be used as a palette because acrylic paints will not cling to them, making clean-up easy.
Typically, the shelf life for most paints is 5-7 years. If kept in a closed container under stable living temperatures, shelf life can be indefinite. Here are a few guidelines to follow to determine if your Crafter's Acrylic paints are still good to use:
If the paints can be re-mixed by shaking or stirring, they are fine to use.
If the paints can't be successfully shaken or stirred, they should be discarded and replaced.
If there are small pieces of dried matter in the paint, you can create a filter by unscrewing the paint cap, placing a small piece of nylon stocking or similar fine-weave, thin fabric over the opening, then putting the cap back on. When you squeeze out the paint, dried matter will stay inside the bottle, and only smooth paint will flow out.
If there are "strings" in the paint, it is best to discard and replace it.
Dry time can depend on temperature, humidity, thickness of application, etc. Crafter's Acrylic normally dries to the touch within 15 minutes or less.
