Its simple to use and clean up.
" Our water-based colorwash and paint clean up easily with soap and water.
" Invite your children to help! And play it safe: avoid eye contact and wash hands after use.

How long does it take?
Although it varies with each person, the average person can wipe a 8 foot high wall by 10 ft long with a coat of colorwash in about 25 minutes. The second coat usually takes 10 to 15 minutes. The clouds can be done in stages. After you put the shapes on the wall using the chalk that comes with the Cloudwash kit I suggest you take a break.

By taking a few minutes to walk away and come back you can take a fresh look at the layout before begining to fill in your clouds. If you want to move a cloud, just wipe off the chalk and put it somewhere else. It is as easy as that. The next step is to fill in the clouds by wiping the Cloudy White Paint in one cloud at a time. The first coat should take about 45 seconds to a minute per cloud. Move from one cloud to the next, by the time you have moved across the wall you will be ready to put the next layer on.

These will show you how our product is different from regular house paint. Our Colorwash and Cloud Paint have been formulated to go on with just enough pigment to allow you to form your sky in layers. This allows you to mess up a cloud layer and still fix it with another coat. Our colorwash is semi-transparent so it will get more interesting the more layers you put on. Regular paint is not semi-transparent, with multiple coats it becomes solid and lifeless.

TIPS
Keep an extra rag handy to wipe the back of your hand after you dip your cloth in the bucket.
If you are colorwashing over carpet it is best to cover it up. If you have a drop cloth or plastic great. If you have some of those funky old curtains that have the rubber backing and have been looking for an excuse to purge them for your life, now is your chance. They make great drop cloths. If you do get some colorwash on the carpet, clean it by dabbing with a most cloth and then wiping with a dry cloth like you would with water-based paint.

If you are colorwashing over hardwoods and need to wipe some off. Use a damp cloth and some elbow grease. The same is true with light switch covers.
