ARTISTSIC TINTS: INFORMATION AND SAFETY DATA SHEET www.artopiamosaics.com

Thank you for purchasing this product. Artistic Tints are a range of intense liquid colorants for tinting grout, adhesive, paint and other coatings. Artopia stocks 25 Exciting Colours. See website for the full colour range.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: DO NOT OPEN TUBE BY REVERSING CAP. Instead, pierce with a small pointed instrument to prevent spillage and to ensure the cap is kept clean. You will also need to wash hands and wipe surfaces if even a small amount is spilt, otherwise the colour can easily spread to other surfaces.

Prepare grout or adhesive (or other coating) in the usual manner. Add a small amount of the tint and stir. It is best to add a little at a time with a small stick, otherwise you may end up with a colour much deeper than you intended. You can create pastel shades by adding just a tiny amount of tint. You can increase the intensity of your grout/glue/paint by adding more. Do not add more than 10% tint content to your grout/glue/paint, or you can compromise the integrity of the base product.

Colours can be mixed together to create other colours. Colours can be made lighter or darker by adding white tint or white grout/adhesive.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

WARNING: Artistic Tints are extremely intense and a little bit goes a long way, which means without undue care the colour can spread where you don’t want it. Will stain clothing, furniture and surfaces, so handle with care.
