Whether you're having an at-home painting party for adults or for kids, you want to make sure that your party is as mess-free as possible. Many people assume that because acrylic paint is water-based, it's washable. But that's just not the case! Acrylic paint dries into a hard plastic that is nearly impossible to remove from fabric furniture and a challenge to remove from clothes.
So how can we protect your home and your guests from the mess? It's not as challenging as you might think! Let's cover three hacks to make sure that you get all the creative fun and none of the mess during your painting party.
Using easels for your canvases is another way to reduce mess. It won't prevent spills completely, but it'll keep the majority of the paint on the canvas, rather than on the table.
We prefer using disposable plastic aprons, because they are easy to toss in the trash at the end of the party. They also don't have to be washed in between parties in order to be sanitary. That said, there are some adorable, customizable options for fabric aprons on Etsy that can make your party feel extra special!
Baby wipes are recommended, because unlike other types that contain harsh cleaning products, they are nontoxic and can be used on your guests as well as on your furniture.
