Tips for Pouring:
Pouring Medium is a water-based product, designed to be mixed with water-based paints. Introducing water or other additives other than DecoArt's Pouring Medium into your paint may compromise the integrity of the paint's adhesion to the surface.
Care should be utilized when using tape to mask edges or other areas of the surface. When removing the tape, wait until the paint is dry to touch. Use a craft knife to score along the edges of the tape. This will ensure the paint will not be pulled up with the tape.
