Createx Colors 4040 Bleed Checker Non-reactive barrier

Use 4040 as non-reactive barrier over Candy2o or other Createx paints to inhibit bleeding. 4040 prevents dyes from migrating through top-coated colors, sealers and other Candy2o colors. 

To avoid bleed-through:

1. Always add 4030 Balancing Clear 30% or more per volume to Candy2o colors for improved flow & adhesion. 

2. Use 4040 as non-reactive barrier over Candy2o. DO NOT REDUCE.

3. Allow colors to dry matte before applying more coats.

    Must have

    Posted by Jeffery Davis on Oct 25, 2022

    The bleed checker is a must have when it comes to using candy2.0 paint. It really protects what you ate working on . Since the candy is a dye it really stops the bleeding into your other paints. Really glad I got it.

    Works very well over candy2o colors. Apply over a candy2o color before another color.

    A must have for covering Candies with other paint

    Posted by R.E. Klaus on Aug 23, 2022

    Candy2O is a dye based product and loves to "reactivate" and bleed through any paint applied over them. 4040 Bleed Check seals the candy so you can apply other colors, even white, with out the candy coming through.

    Invisible action

    There's a bad joke: "I know there's a ninja here, because I can't see him." The 4040 is kind of like that -- you know it works because nothing happens. Your candy doesn't bleed. Sure, maybe it wouldn't bleed without it. But given how much effort goes into a good candy, it seems like cheap insurance.
