  • May be thinned up to 10% with water to achieve more subtle/softer look.
  • Close the container after each use. Keep air tight. Keep the sides and edges of the container clean. Do not allow dried product to fall into the wet material. A sheet of plastic wrap pressed onto the materials surface will keep it from drying and protect it from foreign matter.
