Tips & Tricks
+ To stretch the canvas iron face down onto a clean, flat surface and mist the back of the canvas lightly with water.
+ The paint can be cleaned up with water…do not add water to the paint
+ Water-based acrylic paints dry quickly if left open for too long. Always close the paint pot lids after use to prevent the paint from drying out.
