USAGE AND CARE OF YOUR PAINTS
STOCKMAR paints are a worthwhile investment in quality art supplies for you and your children, so you want to make them last as long as possible. Here are our suggestions on how to make that happen based on our own years of use.
Dilution Ratio for Painting
We always start with a dilution ratio of 1 part paint concentrate to 9-10 parts water. But that’s the dilution we tend to like. Some people may prefer less or more but if you are new to STOCKMAR, it’s a great starting place.
Preventing or Mixing Paint if it Separates or Thickens
With age or lack of use, the pigment concentrate will thicken. This is normal. It’s still usable! We’ve found that storing your paints in a cool location or even a refrigerator helps prevent or slow this process. We also use a clean wooden stick, like a skewer, to stir the concentrate as it will usually separate upon thickening too. Scrape as much concentrate off your skewer back into your paint bottle! It’s too valuable to waste.
