HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT COLOUR

CLEANING OF HANDS AND CLOTHING

All the paints can be washed off of hands with warm water and natural soap or turpentine. Glue and lime paints can be washed off after they have hardened. 

CLEANING AND STORAGE OF BRUSHES

Paint-brushes used with linseed oil, tar and wax paints are best stored dipped in linseed oil. This way the brushes will always be soft and easy to squeeze out in a cloth. If a brush needs to be cleaned completely, clean it with linseed oil and turpentine first, and then wash it with warm water and natural soap.

STORAGE OF PAINT

Linseed oil, tar and wax paints are best stored in tightly sealed containers out of reach of children. The paint is resistant to cold and does not change its consistence.

Glue and lime paints should be kept indoors above 0°C. Glue paint should be used within 1,5 months. Lime paint can be stored for an unlimited period of time if the paint is not exposed to freezing temperatures and is kept air-tight.

Before ordering the paint we recommend to view the paint visually applied on a larger area, in combination with other colours and in different light conditions. The light colours will look lighter on large areas, the darker ones will look darker, and the bright ones – brighter.

The colour of the paint is affected by the roughness of the surface and the adhesive used. On a rough surface the colour will look darker. The tar paint can look slightly warmer.  The warmer colours, as well as brown, red, green and yellow colours are less affected by the tonal shift.
