FAQs
Q:
A:
FolkArt® Extreme Glitter is a waterbased, non-toxic paint loaded with a high concentration of small glitter particles.
 
Q:
A:
Some of the FolkArt® Extreme Glitters use a tinted base to give the glitter a more uniform look when it dries. This also allows the user to apply the Extreme Glitter directly to a project without applying a basecoat.
 
Q:
A:
No, FolkArt® Extreme Glitter will not rub off or flake off of your project. The base of Extreme Glitter is formulated so that glitter particles are securely adhered to the surface once dry.
 
Q:
A:
FolkArt® Extreme Glitter can be used on most porous surfaces including wood, terra cotta and paper mache. It can be used on glass, ceramics for fabric (decorative fabric only).
 
Q:
A:
Yes, the FolkArt® Enamels should be baked on the project before applying FolkArt® Extreme Glitter. Follow the instructions on the Enamels label for proper use.
 
Q:
A:
It is not recommended that you mix FolkArt® Extreme Glitter colors together because the tinted bases would get muddy. You may paint one color of Extreme Glitter and let it dry and then paint another color on top.
 
Q:
A:
No, FolkArt® Extreme Glitter should not be mixed with extender or water as this will dilute the glitter content and reduce the adhesion of the paint to the surface.
 
Q:
A:
No, you cannot mix FolkArt® Extreme Glitter with FolkArt® Acrylics or any other acrylic paint. You may apply FolkArt® Extreme Glitter over any dry acrylic paint.
 
Q:
A:
Yes, FolkArt® Extreme Glitter should be stirred gently before using to mix the glitter into the paint. Do not shake Extreme Glitter as it will create air bubbles in the paint.
 
Q:
A:
FolkArt® Extreme Glitter should be applied in thin coats using the tip of a soft bristle brush. A foam brush may also be used, however, some glitter particles may remain in the brush instead of adhering to the project.
 
Q:
A:
FolkArt® Extreme Glitter has a transparent base, but the glitter particles are opaque.
 
Q:
A:
Yes, you can apply FolkArt® Extreme Glitter both horizontally and vertically. Extreme Glitter will not run or drip if applied correctly.
 
Q:
A:
If FolkArt® Extreme Glitter starts to streak, allow that coat to dry to the touch - approximately 20 minutes - then brush another thin coat in the opposite direction using a soft bristle brush.
 
Q:
A:
There is no set number of coats of FolkArt® Extreme Glitter that need to be applied. For best results, at least 3 thin coats should be applied. Too many coats of Extreme Glitter can dull the overall glitter effect.
 
Q:
A:
Allow FolkArt® Extreme Glitter to dry at least 20 minutes between coats or until the base is clear.
 
Q:
A:
Yes, you can speed up the drying process of FolkArt® Extreme Glitter by using a fan or a hair dryer on the lowest setting.
 
Q:
A:
FolkArt® Extreme Glitter dries in approximately 20 minutes and cures within 24 hours.

Q:
A:
FolkArt® Extreme Glitter should be applied in thin, even coats to prevent the appearance of brushstrokes.
 
Q:

Clean applicators while wet with soap and water.
 
Q:

FolkArt® Extreme Glitter decorative projects should be dusted lightly with a soft brush.
