What is the mixing ratio of Bluebird Pouring Medium?
Bluebird Pouring medium is ready to use however with repeated use, it’s consistency will get thicker (due to contact with air) and that’s when we recommend max 20% water dilution.
Acrylics to pouring medium ratio is 80% pouring medium to 20% acrylics.
If mixing with water, do it before and then mix with acrylic colours.
What's the volume of paint in acrylic colours jar?
We try to keep our price range in uniformity across shades, that’s the reason we market in weight instead of volume. This is a 100 ml jar in volume but the paint in it is marketed and filled according to 100 gm. Higher the pigmentation of a colour, higher the weight and hence lower the volume in 100 ml jar.
So our paints range from 75 ml up to a 100 ml in volume of certain shades.
Which varnish is used to overcoat acrylic/oil paintings?
It won’t crack or change the colour of the painting if it’s diluted properly with turpentine (mitti ka tail) before application (max 30%). Always recommended to test on a surface first before applying on the final artwork.
We now also have water based Varnish available called Polyurethane Clear Coat. It’s diluted with water and gives semi gloss finish.
All the products above are to be diluted with turpentine (mitti ka tail) for better consistency. If the surface is pre-painted, it requires sanding too.
The alternate water-based paints for wooden furniture are called Chalk Paints which do not require any sanding or priming. You dilute it with water and apply with brush, roller, or spray. It is required to overcoat with Bluebird Polyurethane Clear Coat (Matt) for long lasting finish and acts just like a wax does on chalk paint. It is easy to use and low VOC which is not harmful for the environment or your family.
