How do I use Genesis?

Use genesis thinly

When painting in genesis be prepared to use layers of colour rather than applying it thickly. Even with the heat gun it does take time to dry!

I find that Genesis dries in about 10 to 15 seconds a section which is amazing. You hold the heat gun about 8 to 10 inches above the area don't move it count out loud then move to the next spot if a large area and repeat when done place a tissue over it press lightly if it comes away clean it's dry if not repeat again and that should do it. Sure beats waiting days or weeks for regular Oil paint to dry enough to paint over. This way you get a 8 x 10 oil done in a day!!
