Why is my DFX white all gloppy?

Post by DeannaB on Wed Apr 27, 2011 3:18 pm

I have a big problem... my DFX white is all soupy and gloppy. I use Snazaroo white for my bases but DFX white for line work and dots. The Snaz if fine but the DFX is more like gelled liquid goo and not a 'cake' anymore.

This reminds me of the 'dippy pot' description - but I never heated my DFX in the microwave. Could the hot weather do this? I bring my kit inside the house at the end of the day so they don't overheat in the car. Has anyone else had a problem with this? Does anyone know what I can do to fix it?

Please help in Texas Sad

My DFX white gets gloppy after I've used it for a while in the heat. I usually spray some water on a lid, load the brush with glop and then thin it out on the lid to the consistency I want. Works like a charm! Very Happy

Angie, good tip with the lid! I'd have never thought of that - my DFX white was starting to gloop a bit (technical term) after the crazy weekend...

Deanna, are you leaving the lid off when you're home, so it dries out?

I am now - LOL - I pulled the paint case out of the bin and I've been letting it air out for the past few days. Hopefully this will work but as of two days ago the DFX white was still gloppy. I have an open slot next to the DFX white in my 'bead bin' so this would be a good place to 'thin it out' as needed for line work. I'll give it a try tonight. Thanks!
