“Dear Plaidie Laddie, I was very inspired by the Just Another Day In Paradise Plaque, I saw posted on Paint Me Plaid. In the project a FolkArt stain was used. I have used paint stains before in other crafts, but I wanted to know if I can mix stain colors? Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.” – Nicole from D.C.

Hi Nicole. Thank you so much for following our blog, and asking your question. All colors within the FolkArt® Stain line can be poured together to create a new color. They can also be mixed wet on wet to achieve different colors. Wet on wet simply means, that you brush the first stain color, then immediately brush the second color on. finally, wipe off both with a clean soft cloth.
