Sketch Paint – FAQ Sheet

What is Sketch Paint?

Sketch Paint is a dry-wipe paint. It is a waterborne, two compartment, PU acrylic dispersion topcoat that can transform almost any surface into a dry-wipe area. What colour is Sketch Paint? Sketch Paint is available in White and Transparent. Transparent Sketch Paint can be used over any existing colour wall, door or board you have within your home, school or office to turn any area into a dry-wipe surface.

Can I change the colour of Sketch Paint or tint it? Sketch Paint should never be combined with another paint product. As Sketch Paint is available in Transparent you can use that to paint over your existing décor and have a dry-wipe surface which is a colour of your choice.

What size tins are available and what is the area they cover? The 0.5 Litre Tin of White or Transparent covers approximately 3m˛ with one coat. The 1.0 Litre Tin of White or Transparent covers approximately 6m˛ with one coat.

What should I do before I begin to apply Sketch Paint? Prepare your surface well; a clean, dust-free, solid, smooth area will give a better base for Sketch Paint. If the Sketch Paint is to be applied onto an untreated surface, such as wood, we recommend that you apply a primer or base coat first. Sketch Paint comes in two parts; separate the small tin from the large tin. Empty the contents from the small tin into the large tin. If necessary, dilute with a maximum of 3% water. Mix the paint thoroughly with a stirring stick and leave to stand for 5 minutes until most of the air bubbles have disappeared. For full instructions please refer to the ‘TO USE’ section of the Sketch Paint Leaflet.

How should Sketch Paint be applied? Sketch Paint is best applied in one coat using a sponge roller which can be cleaned with soap and water after use. Apply Sketch Paint within one hour of mixing as the paint does harden quickly. PLEASE NOTE: THE PAINT WILL BE TOUCH DRY AFTER 24 HOURS; HOWEVER PLEASE ALLOW 5 DAYS BEFORE WRITING ON THE SKETCH PAINT WITH DRY WIPE MARKERS TO ENSURE THE PAINT HAS FULLY CURED.

Which dry-wipe markers are best to use with Sketch Paint? For best results we recommend using Sketch Paint Dry Wipe Markers but any good quality dry wipe pens can be used. Avoid poor quality pens that can contain some permanent ink blends as they will mark your Sketch Paint.

How do I clean the area I have painted with Sketch Paint? As Sketch paint is a dry-wipe paint, cleaning with a soft cloth should be sufficient. However, any stubborn marks can be cleaned with Sketch Paint Cleaner Spray. Cleaning with our Cleaner Spray regularly will also keep your dry-wipe surface looking neat and bright.

Is Sketch Paint safe to use in my home, school or office? Sketch Paint is a waterborne, two compartment, PU acrylic dispersion topcoat that is safe for use indoors; it is low on odour, complies with European Safety Regulations for Children’s Toys (EN71-73) and has 0% VOC.
