    GSW has a 'Paint Revitaliser'. It's possible that can help?    

    (I have a bottle, but haven't tried it, yet, because none of my paints have been frozen... )    

     

     I suppose it might.  But the paint didn't dry up.  I think the cold temperature just hits the additives or pigments in the paint badly.  It really has a cottage cheese consistency.

    I was kinda afraid of something like this happening. As I like to order from both Pippd & Reaper as far as Texas retailers. Hopefully the cold damage is minimal.

     

    Just the 3 bottles here, hope yours is as good!

     

    I normally order all year round (delivery north of Detroit) and never had any problems with paint.  It never sits on my porch at all as I am home working.  But this years Texas frozen tundra changed the playing field I am sure.

  3. Well I finally got to look at all my Swag paints.  Looks like 3 are not recoverable from sitting in the Texas cold for so long (cottage cheese texture, no amount of additives or vortex mixing helps).  Not bad given how many there were.  All 3 were metallic paints though, wonder if that had anything to do with it.  Email sent off, I'd be happy just being able to purchase replacements.

    Freezing weather is taking a lot of people by surprise this time around. I feel somewhat confident that my order will be unfrozen as it will wait for me at the post office indoors, but everyone else who just gets a box left outside for too long is at risk.

     

    I'm not worried about it being outside here.  Nothing sits on my porch for more than 1/2 an hour.  I'm worried it sat on a truck in Texas for days while winter weather stopped all movement.

  5. Thank you for the list.

     

    Now I just worry about frozen paint as my package has been listed in Texas for a week due to weather problems.  I normally order at anytime with no problem.  But normally Texas doesn't look like the North Pole!

  6. I just took Aaron's airbrush classes.  He uses Liquitex and DR inks through the airbrush quite a lot.  Everyone in the class as well with absolutely no problems.  In fact we went right back almost immediately to paint in some highlights right after we applied the inks to deepen some shadows with no problems.

    Yeah, I've found those etching-scrapers at stores.  I can't find that one that was spoken about and now I'm jealous because i can't find one for myself.  It looks to have been pretty well reviewed from those who used it so, yeah... i want one, too. The question is where the heh can i find one? 

     

    I sent you a PM with a link for a possible one to get, given we can't post links here to consumer sites.

    This would likely run afoul of the 'no trading' rules of the forums, I agree that an offline list and maybe keeping discussion on Discord? might be warranted.. but @Reaper_Jon would be the ultimate arbiter on how allowable that would be

     

    Perhaps I wasn't clear in my intent, but I was not saying we should have one person do a large order and then ship out to others and trade.  It's more of a community answer of "hey we have 10 people interested in this color", so let's all agree to order it around the same day so that Reaper does one run of it and perhaps saves them some effort as opposed to orders coming in apart and doing multiple runs.  I'm just trying to perhaps same them some color change effort since they are willing to provide this service.  Also it perhaps shows them what colors really are missed and maybe they would consider bringing back at some time, even if only as a special edition for an event.

  9. Well even if we just got a list of what colors people want.  And then say, hey let's all put in an order for color XXXXX on this date so they get an order for one color together.  Not necessarily rely on one person ordering and doing a re-ship.  Now of course you would be getting 10 bottles, but perhaps a few painters in a local area can split the order in person.

     

    Not sure any of this would work, but just trying to perhaps take some burden off Reaper as they are going to provide this great service and stop an order for a color coming in, they do it, then another for the same comes quickly after if we can all just think ahead some and organize ourselves!

    I wonder...  

     

    If Reaper is willing to schedule mini batches (for a price), but we must expect that it can take 4 weeks before that batch can be processed.  

     

    What if several painters all ordered the same paint?    

     

    Also, it was nice to know the approximate formula for deciding which paints gets pulled. 

    While we know that Reaper paints lasts for many years, it's good to know that the paint we buy is fresh. 

     

     

    I also wonder if we should perhaps have a thread somewhere where we can gather interest of what colors.  And then present a combined order to Reaper.  Where colors overlap they can then streamline a run for that color.

    I just wear a respirator and pull the booth away from the wall and just use the vent on the booth

    So anything that the booth fan pulls out that it’s filter does not catch just goes out the back at the wall?
