Q: I just ordered a 3 month subscription as a gift (April, May, June). Can you tell me what painting kits she’ll be receiving?Asked by Robyn V., March 2022

Your Paint Box answered...March 2022

Hello Robyn,
The April box will be a blue and white vase with tulips and a small painting of a rabbit. May will have a feminine Mother's Day theme and June will have a slightly more masculine theme for Father's Day (last year it was a sailboat and a mallard duck). Hope that helps! Thank you so much for your order, Kathryn

Q: I heard you may have a junior version. I was looking to gift for a 6 year old. Do you have a Junior version still? Asked by Jennifer C., December 2021

Your Paint Box answered...December 2021

Hello Jennifer, I did have a Junior box, but have put that on hold in order to spend more time marketing the adult box. I've had plenty of 11 years old and up use the adult box, if that helps!

I paid for 6 boxes but only received 4

Your Paint Box said...Jan 14, 2022

Stephanie, I've looked into this and I see that you cancelled your subscription after box #4, last July. I will send you an email with a screenshot of your order page, and discuss any credits or refunds with you; sometimes mistakes are made in a small business especially when we rely so much on technology. I am so sorry about any confusion and it breaks my heart to see a poor review. I wish you had sent an email to my customer service account any time over the last six months, and we could have cleared this up a long time ago. I do my best every day to make sure that my customers are happy. Kathryn

Great Products, just not for Beginners!

I think the products are great but for a beginner, this isn't the box for me. The main paintings were too hard for me. The 5x7 was easier. I had 2 boxes and tried one of the main paintings but couldn't finish it. It was a horrible mess! So maybe it is just me but I found them way too hard for a beginner but that is just my recommendation. The boxes did have great products that maybe I can use for something else but I really was looking for something beginner friendly its too bad as it could have been something great. The other major problem is I'm in Canada and with the shipping fee and exchange, it came to $100 CDN!!! which is kinda crazy if you ask me. But you find that with some boxes.
update: I did contact the owner and she had me try one of her other easier paintings the snowman and it turned out better! She was supposed to send me some paint to complete the project but it never came I just bought some myself.

Your Paint Box said...Oct 08, 2021

Oh Jennifer! I'm so sorry the projects were a little difficult for you :(
I have been teaching beginners for twenty years, so I've tried to use that experience to make these projects as easy as possible. Painting does take a lot of practice, so first attempts aren't always perfect! Feel free to email some pictures of your finished paintings and I can give you some coaching. The shipping to Canada is high, I absorb a good bit of it. Thank you for your response, keep practicing! Kathryn

This was just what I needed during the pandemic. Asked some facebook friends to do it with me and we did our first box together. The boxes kept coming and each one was made easy and fun. Not overwhelming and learned something new. Love it.

Very nice!!!

This was such a fun project to complete with my niece! She has minimal experience with painting (although she does love it and is wanting to get more into it) and also is only 9, but she was able to pick up the lesson rather quickly! I think the way Kathy talks through the steps is very easy to follow as is the way she instructs mixing the colors, etc. This was such an enjoyable activity for us and my niece has been quick to show everyone who comes to her house her new painting. She is proud of herself- I think she is amazed how well it came together! I am looking forward to completing another paint box with her soon!!

Very beginner friendly!!

I needed a distraction today of all days and decided to overcome my fear of making an ugly painting and just went for it by starting with the small Pumpkin painting.
The Video included was a must for me. I learn by seeing and not reading. Though directions were wonderful to have to refer back to in case you could not remember everything from the video or did not want to go back and watch it again for whatever reason.
I learned a lot from doing the small painting first. The first thing was to make enough paint. It needs to be thick to look correct. I got over being worried about mixing paints very fast so all in all not making enough paint had its good points too.
I needed this distraction today I am very happy with my lopsided pumpkin for my first ever oil painting.
Great Box!!
