Re: Frustrated with paints

While the chalk is ancient rock, the acrylic binder can go snotty. Even a new container can be "off" if something happened to it somewhere in the distribution chain between the mixing machine and the art store shelf. Age can be a factor, but temperature is often the culprit; freezing weather while being shipped, a too-warm warehouse, a hot truck sitting in the sun, etc... Even sitting in your studio near a window.
