|Using Softly Flo Ball-Point
Before painting with Softly Flo, snap a tube protector in
place over the neck of the tube. This prevents the tube from being
squeezed or bent and ensures an even flow of paint. With the cap of the
tip removed, hold the tube vertically, tip facing down, and apply slight
pressure to the tip. As the ballpoint tip is depressed, the paint is
released. As long as the tube is held vertically the paint will flow
evenly. if the tube is held at an angle the paint will--not flow as well.
Excessive rubbing on the side of the tip can cause the ball-point tip to
drop out of the tube, so always hold the tube vertically. Never roll or
fold the crimped edge of the tube. The tube will flatten automatically as
you use the paint. Always store Softly Flo Paints with the cap on, tip
down, ideally, in a tube tray stand or Tri-Chem Rose Tote which holds all
48 basic colors.
Always keep tips clean, wipe tips
frequently with a lint free cloth, or use a Tri-Chem tip zip #0371 to
clean tips for optimal performance. Tips can be removed easily for
replacement. To remove, hold tube in a tip up position between the thumb
and index finger. Gently press the sides of the crimped edge of the tube
to pull paint away from the ball-point tip end. Then, holding the tube
upright, grip the tip lightly using Tri-Chem tip pliers #0641 and turn the
tube until the tip is removed. Replace with a new tip or a fast-flo tip if
covering large areas, or wonder-flo tip to produce a free flowing line or
dots of paint. (See painting ideas on other side.) Note:
with a brush, it is not necessary to remove the Softly Flo ball-point tip.
Simply depress the tip and hold the tip down onto a piece of Tri-Chem
palette paper. Paint will flow onto the paper until you remove pressure
from the tip.
