Texture Paste may be used to create texture before or during painting and may be mixed directly into palette colors or used alone.  Ideal for various special effects or Faux Finishes, it remains flexible when dry. Available in tubes in both white and black and in jars in white only.

• Apply with dry brush, rubber spatula or palette knife to create textured background effects.
• Texture Paste may be tinted and piped through a cake decorating tube or bottle for textured decoration.  Apply to the surface or palette paper and allow to dry. When completely dry, remove from the paper. Apply to the surface by brushing All Purpose Sealer on the back to adhere to the surface.
• Texture Paste through a stencil using a palette knife to create textured designs on projects or walls. The thickness of the stencil will determine the thickness of the design.
• For textured brushstrokes, mix Chroma’s Jo Sonja Artists’ Colors beginning with a ratio of 1:1 and paint as desired. For strokes with less texture and more transparency, mix with Kleister Medium 1:1 before mixing into color.
• Use Chroma’s Jo Sonja Artists’ Colors to lightly pigment for a colored ground similar to gesso. Use Texture Paste for base coating to smooth coarse wood grain or imperfections in the surface.
• Drying time of Texture Paste will vary depending on climate, humidity and thickness of application. Allow a minimum of 24 hours for thick applications of the medium.
• When dry, Texture Paste may be sanded to smooth and will accept paint. Crackle Medium may be applied over the painted surface for added textural effects.
• Antiquing or color glazing using color mixed with Gel Retarder or Retarder Medium will emphasize textural effects.
