Questions (5)
I have a half finished tablecloth from years ago, it has been done in a dark brown. Recently I have purchased some earth Brown(77) and some Brown(14). Neither of these colors are dark enough. Is there any Dark brown available that are not on your chart.. Thanks Mariee

Hi Mariee, thanks for your question. The darkest brown we have is 14 Brown. You can always make your own colours by mixing the paint together with some black but then you would need to paint it with a brush which is quite hard to do on a cloth. I can only suggest painting the other half in 14 brown or a completely different colour. Of course, if you still have the 94 Dark Brown paint from years ago it may still work with a new tip on it. Regards Jenny

Do these paints come with a tip cover? Thanks.

Hi, yes they come with the Dome (little lid) that fits over the tip. Regards Jenny

I have previously purchased the following colours. Pink 7, Lime 17, Dark Green 22. Are these colours still available as they do not show up on your listing? Thank you. Julie Moore

Hi Julie, thanks for your question. We haven't had those colours for over 20 years but you can substitute other colours if you like. 7 Pink = 72 Blossom Pink, 17 Lime = 76 Sweet Green, and 22 Dark Green = 73 Fresh Green or 67 Avocado. Trust this helps. Regards Jenny

Just wondering how long does the paint last as l have a blue case from years ago full of the paints as l used to sell it in Geelong.

Hi thanks for the question. The paints last for over 20 years as it is a spirit-based paint. You may need to simply change the ball-point tips and they will be working like new again. Unscrew the old tip using the Tip Wrench or pliers and if the paint flows freely then you can simply screw in a new tip. Keep the paint tubes stored upright in the Tube Toter for maximum life. You can also use Jumbo Tips or squeeze the paint into a glass jar to dilute with the Thinners and use with brushes. Regards Jenny

How does the paint turn out on denim textiles? Will it survive a pass through the washing machine? If lasting, will the paint have a hard textured finish when applied to fabrics? Thank you!

Hi Kyle, thanks for your question. The paint is ideal to go on denim. It will be permanent. It may be a bit stiff when first painted and will soften with washing. Leave for 72 hours after painting and before washing. Regards Jenny
