PVA is an acrylic co-polymer; a white glue made from acrylic rather than a white bone glue such as Elmers® It is nontoxic and water based with no VOC's.
Paints can be created using various dilutions of PVA with water and our pigments. Add pigment at no more than 20% by volume to your glue base. Pigment should be slaked before adding. Thin further with water as necessary.
