Questions and Answers




How should I store my acrylic paint tubes to ensure they last as long as possible?  Are there special containers I should use?


There is no need for anything fancy.  Our acrylic colours don’t need any special storage conditions . Just store the tubes in normal indoor conditions.  A fairly constant cool temperature is best.  They should keep in good condition for at least 10 years.

When you replace the cap after use, make sure that the thread is clean so that you get an airtight seal. 

At the worst, if stored in quite warm conditions or with large temperature changes you may find a little bit of liquid separation.  This will be mainly water and can be discarded.  The remaining colour would be slightly more concentrated.
