  • Nope. It's just acrylic paint. Not harmful for kids to get it on them, either.

  • Finger pair? Do you mean paint? And acrylic paint or nails? Wait, do you mean finger painting like putting paint on a paper and using your fingers as brushes?

    I'm lost.

  • Kids have finger painted for years; I don't se why adults couldn't do it. Or do you mean does paint harm acryllic fingernails?

  • There is a new way for acrylic artists to paint with acrylics... Finger painting and I did just check with Liquitex. Paint which is non toxic so I guess that answers my question. Thanks for your I put.

  • You obviously answered the question yourself. Goofd for you looking it up/ I honestly was baffled by this one as I could not see why it would be harmful if we let our kids do it?
    LOL

  • Typo... finger paint not finger pair.ha. Sorry. I have gone to a seminar on a different brand of artists acrylics where the speaker did emphasize the toxicity of it. Thus my concern. Question answered and thanks all , girls.
