Paints being shipped during winter months. Issues?
Posted by DMX512 on Sunday, January 27, 2019 12:34 PM

I am wanting to try out the Vallejo Mecha flat and gloss acrylic varnishes.

Since they will be shipped from some random warehouse during winter months / weather, will the Varnish be ok? The same question regarding acrylic paints.

If you’re worried about paint freezing up, no. I’ve ordered paint during winter months in the past and had no issues. I usually let it sit at room temperature once I receive them in the mail.

Can't say for absolute, positive sure but I've recieved lots of paint and other liquids by USPS, UPS, FEDEX, etc in the winter and like Sheep haven't had a problem yet.

After I posted the question I sorta had a “doh“ moment. Hobby shops and craft stores get paint shipments all year round. I imagine word would have gotten out of a certain brand of paint did not fair well being shipped in cold weather.

Really I only buy my Stynylrez primer online because we don't seem to have a local outlet. That I have shipped any time of year, never had a problem. I'm getting low too, so will be ordering soon, probably in Feb.
