Original Flexi Paint™ is water-based so brushes and sponges can be washed clean with warm soapy water.
If you get Original Flexi Paint™ on your skin just use warm soapy water and baby oil or a baby wipe to wash away.
To remove Original Flexi paint™ from a surface soak in hot water for an hour or 2, depending on the thickness, then try to peel the Original 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 Original 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.
Original Flexi Paint™ will dry and will have a tack to the surface.
The tacky surface is because of the high bonding qualities of Original Flexi Paint™, this means NO PRIMER IS NEEDED. Original Flexi Paint™ is its own primer and will bond to a wide variety of surfaces without peeling away or cracking.
The tack also makes Original 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 Original Flexi Paint™ and because they are water and weatherproof they eliminate the discolouring of Original Flexi Paint™ when it is wet.
The Matt Top Coat gives Original Flexi Paint™ a Matt finish as well as removing the tack
completely. The Gloss topcoat keeps your Original Flexi Paint™ surface Glossy and removes the tack completely as well.
Silicone oil or silicone spray can also be used to remove the tack but is ideal for finishing Powder coated surfaces and glitter.
