Other artists have asked us...

  • Why does my Palette Wetting Spray keep clogging?
    It's probably because the acrylic resin in the formula has dried in the nozzle mechanism. See if you can remove the dried residue with warm soapy water and a stiff bottle brush, and try to give the nozzle a wash out after each use to stop it happening again.
  • Can I use Palette Wetting Spray on oils?
    No, Liquitex Palette Wetting Spray is designed to be used exclusively with acrylic paints.
  • What does Palette Wetting Spray do?
    Liquitex Palette Wetting Spray will keep your acrylic paints workable for longer and extend their open time.
