Americana is an all-purpose, premium quality acrylic paint used for decorative painting, home décor and general craft painting projects. It is water-based and has a matte finish that can be varnished to create various sheens. This versatile paint can be used on almost any surface.
Neons are fluorescent acrylic paints made with bright, concentrated neon colors. Neons' fluorescent content make them super bright and reflective of light.
Neon Lights apply a subtle pastel fluorescent color to craft, fashion, and home decor projects. Neon lights also glow under a blacklight!
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.
Glass or high-density plastic makes a great reusable 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 Americana Acrylics are still good to use:
If your 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. Americana Acrylics normal dry to touch within 15 minutes or less.
Americana Acrylics can be used on surfaces such as metal, glass, or fabric, as long as you use the proper medium. To paint on metal or glass, first prime with Multi-Purpose Sealer or mix it directly with the paint. Mix Fabric Painting Medium with paint for painting on fabric. The painted design should be heat-set with an iron once the paint has cured.
