FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) Can Paint Pucks be used in Mineral Solvents, Paint thinner, and/or Turpentine?
The Ultimate Rinse Cup™ cannot be used with these; only water. These chemicals will form cracks in the walls of the cup, eventually causing it to leak.
The Original Paint Puck® can be used with these harsh chemicals. However, as the soft rubber soaks, it absorbs the chemicals like a sponge.
Paint Pucks expand to twice their original size when used in these cleaning chemicals. If your container is too small, the Paint Puck will swell up and no longer fit in the container. Make sure your turp container is large enough to give it room to grow!
Or, we also decided to make Mini Paint Pucks - specifically for use in mineral solvents and turpentine. They start out quite small, but after soaking in solvent for a short time, they too will grow.
These Minis stop growing once they reach the size of the standard Puck size (apx 2.25 inches), allowing you to use Paint Pucks in the smallest of turp cups, without outgrowing it. The video below goes further into detail.
2) Are Paint Pucks SAFE to use in thinners when I'm painting?
Yes, Paint Pucks are safe to use in these chemicals. The Paint Pucks do not and will not "break down," or disintegrate when used in these chemicals. As explained above, the Paint Pucks swell up to twice their size, and that's about it.
When removing your enlarged Paint Puck from turpentine or mineral solvents, be careful as they are more delicate in this state. Remove them by peeling back the suction cup first, then place on a paper towel. After several hours, the Paint Puck will sweat out the chemicals and shrink back to its original size.
Always use care when handling harsh chemicals like Turpentine and Mineral Solvents!
3) Do Paint Pucks work with Makeup Brushes?
Yes, Paint Pucks can be used with your cosmetic makeup brushes. While Paint Pucks were initially conceived to revolutionize the artistic painter's common rinse cup, there is no reason why makeup enthusiasts can't find a use for Paint Pucks in makeup application and brush cleaning.
