Have you noticed small droplets appearing on your fresh coat of acrylic paint? Don't panic – it’s a normal part of the curing process.
Sometimes when acrylic paints are drying small, light coloured droplets will appear on the surface. This usually happens if newly painted surfaces are exposed to moisture, either by dew, high humidity or other types of moisture such as steam.
These droplets cause no downgrading of the paint film's durability, they only affect the appearance. Once the paint is dry, wash the surface with , and then rinse with plenty of water. Sometimes droplets may continue to appear for some time and will need wiping down until they stop. These droplets are simply surfactants, which are drawn to the surface by moisture.
