FAQs about Painting Supplies

Acrylic Paint Drying Time

The majority of acrylic paints tend become dry to the touch in a period of 10-20 minutes. However, some slower drying acrylic paint may stay wet for hours after being applied to the canvas.

Oil Paint Drying Time

Oil paints generally take longer to dry than acrylics, especially when solvents like turpentine are involved. Since these solvents in the paint need to oxidize in order to dry, it can take anywhere between 24 hours to 12 days for oil paints to dry.

Watercolour Paint Drying Time

Watercolours are much quicker to dry and only take 5 to 15 minutes for each layer to dry, depending how much water you have used. Obviously, if it really needs to be thoroughly dry, you will want to give it a few hours.

Gouache Paint Drying Time

Gouache paint takes up to 30 minutes to dry, sometimes even longer depending when the water evaporates. A hairdryer can be used to help dry the gouache paint quicker.

The shelf life of paints differ across the various types with some lasting longer than others. Here's a quick guide for how long paints last.

Acrylic Paints

Acrylic paint can be kept for over 10 years if stored well. As a general rule of thumb, if your acrylic paint has been opened make sure to look out for any mouldy smells as that is a sign it is time to get new paints.

Oil Paints

Oil paints can be stored for a very long time, lasting over 30 to 40 years depending on storage copnditions.

Watercolour Paints

Watercolour paints can be kept for 2 to 3 years, potenitally up to 10 to 15 years if you re-hydrate the paint yourself. Check in on these in case they have split.

Gouache Paints

Gouache paints have a shelf life for 2 years, but make sure to keey an eye out for any fungus or bacteria build up. Otherwise, it is time to get new supplies!
