Product Questions and Answers

Ask a Question

Can this paint be used outdoors?

- Asked by Kathy on 24-Apr-14

Try DecoArt Patio Paints instead as they are waterproof and more durable for outdoor projects.

- Answered by MisterArt on 25-Apr-14

Can I use this on concrete?

- Asked by Nancy Carr on 18-Feb-14

The Americana Acrylic Paints are not recommended for use on concrete. Try Patio Paint by DecoArt on concrete.

- Answered by MisterArt on 25-Feb-14

What PSI can I use if using with an airbrush?

- Asked by lure painter on 08-Nov-13

The PSI to use with an airbrush is 30-35.

- Answered by MisterArt on 11-Nov-13

What thinner and ratio-to-paint is recommended in order to airbrush?

- Asked by Lee S. on 07-Aug-13

Just thin it with water, but these paints are pretty thin already, so just add a little at a time, until it is the consistency of the paint you normally use in your airbrush. Acrylic is sort of plastic (polymer) so be sure to clean out your airbrush right away when you are done. Acrylic dries very quickly.

- Answered by MisterArt on 07-Aug-13

Can Americana acrylics be airbrushed?

- Asked by Audette on 30-Jun-13

You can thin down any paint to the consistency to run through an airbrush.

- Answered by MisterArt on 01-Jul-13

great price, shipped well
Rated by: Helen in West Palm Beach, FL
I just received my fourth order of Americana acrylics. I am especially pleased with the wide array of colors -- the pastel shades such as baby blue and baby pink are my favorites, as they are both delicate and vibrant. Also, I appreciate the easy clean-up.
Rated by: Joy P. in Raleigh, NC
I actually use these to mix with metallics or pearl medium to create colors that I want. They mix well, apply easily, and the finish lasts longer than some other paints out there.
Rated by: Terry G. in Gap, PA
I use this paint all the time and never have had problems. Very smooth and does dry nicely
Rated by: Denise G. in Austin, IN
I was very pleased to find this site for there was one paint color I used to make my trees in my paintings and yes MisterArt.com had the very color I needed and was so delighted that I purchased a good amount and will surely come back for future orders that this paint is really good to paint with and very smooth when it comes out of the bottle. I have been painting for over 20 yrs. and I'm so happy I found a good reliable company that sells everything I need to continue my passion of painting. Thanks Mister Art for being out here for me and so many others.

Great color selection. Paint goes on very well with nice vibrant color.
Rated by: Irma M. in Allagash , ME
I ordered a few colors to make a geometric painting and these paints have wonderful color saturation and also even the light colors will go over dark paint if you want to change the color. Again MisterArt.com has great quality products.
Rated by: Pauline L. in Bullhead City, AZ
Nice smooth acrylic paints with true to color samples. Blends nicely and can be sprayed with acrylic for longevity and protection.
Rated by: Cindy S. in Springboro, OH
I used this paint to decorate a hardened pretzel roll wreath I was making. My project turned out very nice. Thank you!
Rated by: Alexandra V. in Lanoka Harbor, NJ
Very smooth paints, go on easily and dry quickly. Sample colors are very accurate and I like that there is such a varied selection of colors.
Rated by: cindy h. in oregon, IL
Very nice paints. They go on smooth and dry quickly. I use them on my bisque ceramic pieces.
Rated by: judy m. in Lucerne Valley, CA
Bright clear bold colors, easy to work with.
Rated by: Dawn M. in new york, NY
I love these paints! Very affordable, easy to mix. I actually use them to paint portraits, and anything around the house that needs a touch up, so they're versatile too.
Rated by: Sharon G. in Miami, FL
Good quality, great colours and price. Goes on smoothly and my paintings are quite vibrant.
Rated by: minnie l. in Parkland, FL
very good paints, would use again. The only thing is sometimes depending on color they are very thick and need to be watered down a small bit.
Rated by: Terry G. in Gap, PA
I have been getting the AMericana paints since I have been using MisterArt and they are the best for my ceramics they are fresh paints and brush on smooth I will never use another brand again.
Rated by: Phyllis Z. in Green Valley, AZ

I am taking a decorative painting class and really enjoying it very much. I ordered my initial supplies from Mr. Art and have been very happy with the products I purchased. They are of excellent quality and I hope to take more classes in oil painting later on. Thank you again for your excellent service. Dorothy Scaggs
Rated by: Deborah M. in Antioch, CA
GREAT colors. Always satisfied with any product ordered. Fast service is a real plus!!!!!
Rated by: Casandra G. in Richmond, TX
I decided to try these paints on a project once, and now I don't want to use anything else. The colors are accurate, and the paint quality is very good. They blend well, too. It's not what you'd expect for the money you pay.
Rated by: Jacquelynne E. in Medical Lake, WA
I prefer this brand of paint. I find it easy to use, creamier, colors are true. Mixing also works well.
Rated by: steve b. in elkton, MD
excellent coverage and blending qualities. will never use anything else.
Rated by: Holly S. in Oak Ridge, NC
I find the DecoArt Americana line of acrylic paints to be of good quality, flexible for many different crafts, and the colors to be consistent from batch to batch. I look for them first when ordering acrylic paints, and MisterArt is my favorite source because of their broad selection (so I can combine paint needs with other craft supply needs) and good prices especially for customers who opt into their discount program.
Rated by: Jennifer W. in Littleton, CO
Good quality paint. Great color selection. Colors are quite vivid.
Rated by: Donald S. in Elizabethtown, PA
I nice discovery. An N scale RR modeler and these paints have opened a whole new world of color for my buildings and scenery.
Rated by: Terry G. in Gap, PA
All the paints I have gotten are easy to work with, they are not in chunks as some paints can be in the bottles, using them when painting goes on my pieces smooth.
Rated by: Wendy T. in Mesa, AZ
I use Deco Art Paint for nearly all of my small painting projects. I am consistently impressed with the myriad of colors, low cost, easy clean up and short drying times. Deco Art Paint is always a pleasure to work with.
Rated by: Peggy G. in Polo, MO
I customize model horses and the Deco Art paints are tops for painting them. I do hand painting and these paints come in natural colors and mix reliably and I really appreciate their quality.
