The next step is to get out the tools you'll need for the acrylic application. In one dish, you'll have your acrylic powder, in the next dish; you'll have your liquid monomer. You don't keep your monomer in the dish, you want to keep it in the sealed container because it can evaporate out and you don't want to waste any of your product. Put just enough in there for the application that you're going to need. If you need more later, you can always add more, but you don't want to have too much, because you'll have to throw any excess away and you can't reuse it. You're also going to want to go ahead and get out your paper towel. Fold it how you need it and secure it down, and you want to get out your acrylic brush. When you get out your brush, you want to just go ahead and stir the powder up a little just because it's been sitting there. If the powder is too cold, it will be too runny when you apply it. If that is the case, you can usually tell if the temperature gets too cold in the room, you just want to put a light over it to kind of heat it up. That is the tools that you will need to start your acrylic application.
