What is the Shelf Life of Stuart's Art Materials?Updated a month ago
In general with art paints, I would stick to 1-2 years as standard for acrylics. A lot will last longer but that's always a safe bet.
● Powders and pigments should last for at least 5 years as long as they aren't in direct sunlight, and don't come into any contact with water.
● For most metallics, a shelf life of a year is about average as the pigment can sink out, but again they usually do last quite a bit longer.
● Diamond dust and glitters should have an infinite lifespan in their containers. Never ending sparkle for everyone!
● Rainbow Liquid will have a much shorter lifespan and it will really depend on how it is kept, but it should keep at least 6-9 months.
