Can I Paint Over Crayon?
Whilst we might adore the art work of the younger generation, the selection of their canvas might be called into question. Painting over crayon is quite tricky if not done correctly. It will require some really good cleaning and preparation to ensure no future problems. Crayons have a wax-resist effect. Using paint alone will not work to cover crayon marks because once the paint dries – even if you have applied layers and layers of paint over crayon – the crayon wax will displace the paint and appear again.
Ensuring a clean well prepared surface is critical, give the surface a really good clean with our using our Maalipesu Cleaning Agent ensuring all grease and oil residue is removed, do this twice if required. It may require a really good scrub to remove all the crayon marks
