How long will it take to make my print?
The estimated time for making your print is 30 minutes. We recommend that you allow time to practise first though!
What is the paint made of?
The paint contains no harmful substances. The ingredients are:
84.7% calcium carbonate (chalk)
8.5% cornstarch (often used to make crisps)
4.2% EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer â€“ widely used to make products such as babies bottles)
2.6% carbon black pigment
How do I remove the paint?
As soon as you have finished making your prints, remove the paint from your petâ€™s paws by rinsing with soap under warm water. The paint is not harmful but if allowed to dry, it could very occasionally cause temporary staining. In this unlikely event, several washes with warm soapy water should be sufficient to clean your petâ€™s paws.
When I practise, the paint is too light. What am I doing wrong?
You may have diluted the paint with too much water. Use more applications of the paint to create a deeper colour. Alternatively, the paint on your petâ€™s paws may have dried. Apply more wet paint and try again!
Would the paint stain my clothes or furniture?
We recommend that your work area is adequately covered by old sheets or towels. If paint does spill onto clothes or furniture wash the area with warm soapy water immediately. It is highly unlikely that the paint would stain.
I have finished â€“ how do I hang my canvas?
The easiest way to do this is simply to rest your artwork on a pin or tack hammered into the wall. You do not need to attach anything to the canvas in order to do this.
