Plaidie Laddie is back today, and ready to help tackle any urgent craft and painting questions. Don’t be alarmed by his fur and paws, he is a very skilled and knowledgeable crafter. Looks can be deceiving For those of you who may be new to our blog, Plaidie Laddie is our loyal Plaid pooch, and one of our blog contributors. Throughout the month he helps answer your most burning craft and painting questions. This week’s question is concerning the new paint from Martha Stewart, and tin surfaces. A customer called us here at Plaid to ask the following question:
“I wanted to use paint from the new Martha Stewart acrylic paint line, on tin. Is tin an appropriate surface I can use this type of paint on?”
This is a great question. Tin is a wonderful surface to decorate with Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paints. As with any painting project, surface preparation is key to proper paint performance. Tin can often times be a surface that many may not know how to clean. No worries, we can help you with that Tin must be thoroughly cleaned before painting with the new Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paints. Before painting on galvanized tin, you must first wash it with soap and water. When dry, wipe with white vinegar using a dampened cloth. Let it dry and wipe again with clean water. If you are unsure if the tin you are using is galvanized, clean as instructed above to ensure proper paint performance.
