Kids Washable vs. Non-Washable Paint

In this blog I want to educate you on the differences between washable or non-washable paints kids typically use.

Knowing these tips will help you pick the right paint for your project needs.

I’m also going to share one of my tips on how to check if the paints you have are truly washable or not as the label says!

So read up and you will be an expert on this subject by the end of this blog.

You can also find many of these cool kids paint tips in my new book Kids Painting©.

Washable paint

Ok, so washable paint is designed to wash easily off skin, fabrics, surfaces and walls.

These types of paints don’t bind to surfaces permanently.

Generally, washable paints are not long-lasting or archival.

These paints give your child the opportunity to have a painting experience, not long-lasting archival artworks.

Some washable paints have been known to disappear from paper after time.

Unless the label says washable, I would treat all paint as semi-permanent.

Non-washable paint

Now, non-washable paint is designed to have sticking power!

These types of paints have binders and pigments meant to stain and last long.

Non-washable paints can adhere to a canvas or fabrics as well as paper products.

Most non-washable paints will have long-lasting effects and archive well.

My Super Tip!

 

A great way to truly know if paint is washable or non-washable is to test it out ahead of time!

You can cut a small piece of paper or light fabric and paint on it.

Let it completely dry. You can dry with a hair dryer to speed up the process.

Try to wash the paint out or see how the paint dries on the surface.

You will then know if the paint’s claim is true.

This is how I test to see what paints will work best for what I’m trying to achieve in a particular project.

Remember, all paints are designed to stick or not stick to a surface.

To stay or not to stay!

 

There you have it, in this blog i explained to you what the differences are and why you would need each one.

I also highlighted my favorite tip how to test if a paint is washable or not.

Cheers!
