Soft Filler has a shorter shelf-life of six months to a year. Refrigeration is recommended to extend shelf-life.
Rub ‘n Restore® Colors and Clear Prep+Finish™ are guaranteed for one year from date of purchase, though we find these products are shelf-stable for many more.
Store these products in a temperate, dark place with other paints and chemicals, away from children. Rubber band your stir stick to the bottle; you’ll need it again!
Separation is normal for all colors. The pigments settle to the bottom and form a thick, seemingly impenetrable sludge. So long as the color has never been frozen or left open to dry out, it should reconstitute. Use your stir stick to re-disperse the pigment until smooth and creamy. This may require several minutes of vigorous stirring, which may feel like an eternity. Any lumps that don’t disperse should be filtered through a paint strainer.
