    How long do I let the paint dry before sealing it? Is there some kind of test I can do to see if it dry enough? I have seen the time frame from 1 day up to 3 to 4 weeks!

    Hi, do you have to seal? I have never sealed any of my paintings. BTW, very cool! 😎 Thanks!

    Am very interested in trying this. What is ratio of paint to medium? How many ounces of paint for a medium size canvas?

    I have a question, what is your ratio of paint and pouring medium.

    by the way, I like the brown, it’s very earth and contrast the purple.
