Tip! Flocking can be mixed into the Flesh Flexi Paint™ for translucent skin effects, as done by The Forgotten Imp here.
Flexi Paint™ is water based so brushes and sponges can be washed clean with warm soapy water.
If you get Flexi Paint™ on your skin just use warm soapy water and baby oil or a baby wipe to wash away.
To remove Flexi paint™ from a surface soak in hot water for an hour or 2, depending on the thickness, then try to peel the Flexi Paint away. If this does not work soak the item in baby oil, again for 1 to 2 hours depending on how thick the layer is, so the baby oil penetrates under the Flexi Paint™ and try to peel it away. Don't forget to clear up the baby oil afterwards as much as possible before recoating the piece.
Flexi Paint™ will dry and will have a tack to the surface.
The tacky surface is because of the high bonding qualities of Flexi Paint™, this means NO PRIMER IS NEEDED. Flexi Paint™ is its own primer and will bond to a wide variety of surfaces without peeling away or cracking.
The tack also makes Flexi Paint™ very durable and tough because of that extra bonding power; it grips acrylics, powders and glitters securely to its surface.
The Matt and Gloss Top Coats remove the tack from Flexi Paint™ and because they are water and weather proof they eliminate the discolouring of Flexi Paint™ when it is wet.
The Matt Top Coat gives Flexi Paint™ a Matt finish as well as removing the tack
completely. The Gloss top coat keeps your Flexi Paint™ surface Glossy and removes the tack completely as well.
Silicone oil or silicone spray can also be used to the remove the tack and is ideal for finishing Powder coated surfaces and glitter..
How compatible is Flexi Paint™ with acrylic paints for small details and weathering?
Very. Acrylic paints work well both mixed directly in with Flexi Paint™ as well as applied on top of Flexi Paint™. The tack will grip acrylics and powder pigments perfectly.
