Frequently asked questions

Is it all natural?

Yes! All pigments used are natural. Binder is natural as well as the preservation used.

Do pans have a expiration date?

Yes and no. I recommend using a paint within 2 years of purchasing. I like to tell people to look at it like this. Your makeup has a expiration date right? Well funny enough makeup and watercolor other than binders used are quite related! I just don’t want you to open your palette one day and be disappointed! So use your paint friend! I make more all the time!

When are colors or sets added

Shop updates are every other Friday 10am cst and the Wednesday following each update I usually have a small update noon cst!

Why is my paint sticking to the foil?

It’s totally normal of handmade paints! Since my handmade watercolors are the purest they can get with no additives, it leaves room for them to be a little more fickle. We call these “sticky” paints! Here are some tips to make sure you don’t lose any paint to the foil!

-stick your paint in the freezer if you notice the foil sticking.
-place in the freezer without taking foil off for 15 min. Remove carefully
-contact me with any problems! Happy to help

Are your paints toxic?

NO! I mean don’t munch down on them or anything! But, no I take a lot of pride in curatoring the safest pigments.

However please note these paints are not suitable for children.

*cobalts and some premium pigments do have metals or coppers, which if eaten in large quantities can be harmful. Don’t eat paint.

Shipping times

Shipping varies depending on the update! However I work really hard to make sure your paints are DRY before shipping. This can delay the shipping process. Please refer to my Instagram stories or message me for any shipping updates! Happy to help!

Why is there never paint in your shop?

I sale out. I tend to sale out within the day of the update. I recommend people be available 5 min early!

Shop credits and how to use them!

I offer shop credits at random! The best thing about shop credits is the “right to reserve”. You get to reserve you order from each update till your credit runs out! Simply go to my Instagram on Thursday around noon and in my stories you’ll find all that will be available in the following Friday shop update. You pick what you want and message me HERE on Etsy before 8pm cst on Thursday. I’ll tell you what you have left or tell to how much you owe. If you owe you’ll just need to pay the difference. Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions about them!
