To store jars of paint
- Keep jars in cool place. Otherwise they may ferment, change texture or develop odor.
- Never put water in the primary jar.
- Always use a clean tool to dish out paint.
- Protect paints from freezing.
These paints are very good quality, but they are not meant to be used without water, and cannot be used in thick layers. If you do so, the paint may crack or fall off after a few weeks or months. You should use enough water for the brush to move smoothly on the paper.
