Craft Paints FAQs

How to get acrylic craft paint out of clothes

As the saying goes, prevention is better than a cure - aprons and smocks are the best way to protect your clothes when using craft paint. To remove craft paint from clothes it's best to deal with the stain immediately while the paint is still wet. Remove the stained item and turn it inside out, and rinse the paint from the back of the garment with cold water. Don't rub fabric as this can push the paint into the fibres and make it harder to remove. Launder the garment as per the care instructions, and use some stain remover if the first wash doesn't remove all of the paint.

What paint to use on MDF craft

Craft paints are ideal for decorating timber & papier mache craft supplies, as they provide great coverage and are more cost effective than using artist's paints. You can create custom wall hangings & room decorations with Spotlight's range of MDF shapes or letters & numbers - simply choose some multi surface acrylic craft paints in your favourite colours. They're designed to adhere to a range of surfaces, are non-toxic and water soluble for ease of clean up.

How to thin craft paint

Most craft paints are water soluble, allowing you to thin the paint of your choosing with a few drops of water. You can easily create watercolour effects - even with fabric paints- by adding more water and layering the paint gradually onto your chosen surface.
