Glob Natural Paints {Giveaway!}

We've been painting a natural rainbow
Having young children, I'm always on the lookout for natural art supplies.
During my search, I came across 
(botanically crafted paints and eco-art products)
I contacted Glob and I'm thrilled they were nice enough to send us some paint!
In fact, they sent me two,
one for me and one to giveaway to you!!!
(find out how to enter at the end of this post)
Check out this nifty packaging!

These paints are made from 
The consistency of the paint depends on how much water you use.
I wanted to use the paint as a watercolor first so I used about a 1:3 (paint:water) ratio
The paint went on smoothly,
the colors looked nice and earthy on the paper
(bold and bright in the jars)
The colors blended seamlessly
notice, how they seem to just run together in the painting below?
 The next day, I was a little disappointed to see the color was all gone,
I soon realized that I diluted the paint too much.

Watering down the paint is perfect for process art activities 
(if you aren't worried about the end product)
a tiny bit of paint powder goes a long way.

We also tried the paint a bit thicker.
I mixed the rest of the powder with about 1.5 tbsp of water.
The consistency was a tad thinner than fingerpaint.

Little A practiced painting circles,
her new favorite thing to do.
Miss C used a permanent marker to draw a garden on a canvas and then painted it in.
I love how transparent the paint is, the permanent marker shows right through
 Here's her finished piece hanging up.
The red flower is a "duck flower"
and the purple flowers have their roots dug deep into the ground
Every time she passes this painting, she tells me it's moving.
 I've been informed by Glob that the paint is not archival quality,
however,
if you keep the art away from direct sunlight you will be able to enjoy it for years to come!

I also want to point out that even after painting a 16"x20" canvas and about a hundred million pages of circles we still have paint left over 
and 
(thanks to food preservatives)
 the leftover paint does not need refrigeration!

Keep in mind, it is best to only use as much paint as you need.
The fresher the paint, the more vibrant it is.

  1. These look REALLY nice! We seem to have a lot of things go in and near our little mouths here, so botanically made is tremendously important. I tend to avoid the activity all together if I can't provide a non-toxic, natural version. Would love to try these!

  2. I love natural products! Mostly because I have a couple of "mouthers" but also I like the idea the we are adding a bunch of chemicals to our environment. My 2 year old would love these since she lives all things messy!!!!

  3. I'd have to say we don't use a single product that isn't non toxic. So how awesome are these! Even if we don't win we are buying some! :) thanks for the opportunity.

  18. i like to use natural ingredients as much as possible because my son has eczema, so some commericial products irritate his sensitive skin. we also try to reduce our imprint and use of chemicals as much as we can.

  19. These will be perfect for my little artists that still put things in their mouth.

  20. What a great giveaway. I've actually had my eye on the paints for a little while now. With a young daughter that still puts things into her mouth fairly often it's important for us to use materials that are safe for her but still fun for my oldest.

  21. I would love to use Glob with my preschool art and nature lessons! The more children know about nature, the more they will appreciate it and want to preserve and care for it in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  22. VERY impressed with how the colors look!! I would love a them due to all the crafts I do with my children,I would know that they are a little safer when they are having fun family time!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. These are great! I've looked for natural paint in the past and couldn't find any that I though looked good. It's really important to me, especially while my daughter is young, to have natural art supplies for when she inevitably tries to eat them!

  35. I would love to use this type of paint because for the fact they are organic. Learning is a trial and error expression of themselves, so with this type of paint we are learning hands on how much makes a brighter and bolder color. It also may help with the sensory learner, the textures, smells, colors all aid in the learning process. I want to play with those paints along side my students, this is not only fun for the students but a teacher aswell. my email is bobandannharmon@yahoo.com ( I am ann)

  48. With so many unnatural ingredients in EVERYTHING these days, it is so refreshing to find a product-especially a children's product that is made from natural ingredients!! I have and have a lot of students with skin sensitivities and all types of allergies so I look for natural products whenever I can. I would LOVE to win these paints :D

  56. With paint or products used for Little Ones I often look for non toxic or something that isn't harmful or I make my own. I'd love to have paints for my little one to use without having to be completely concerned if a bit gets into his mouth.
