A crazy thing happened this week.
 I fell in love... with paint..
My poor kids never get to paint.
I hate the mess, the smell and did I mention the mess?
and they love to paint.
This last week I was the lucky lady who got introduced to
Glob paints
They are amazing! And the smells.....
ah... the sweet the smells
I am in love!


Each paint color truly smells like the fruit, vegetable, flower or spice on the packet. My favorite is lemon verbena.
Yummy!
Here is a little blip from the Glob site:
A vast color source for GLOB's blends comes from anthocyanins, which range from bright red to blue in hundreds of fruits and vegetables from grapes, elderberries, black currants, purple carrots, sweet potato, red radish and red cabbage. These pigments have been used to color food since historical times. In flowers, bright reds and purples are adaptive for attracting pollinators.
Perhaps the most obvious natural color comes from beets. Beetroot cells easily 'leak', leaving a stain. Beets create a brilliant scarlet to purple color.
GLOB also uses carotenoid (or beta-carotene) color pigments found in oranges, tomatoes, carrots and marigolds.
Another orange source is the annatto seed, a natural herb that has been used for centuries by indigenous tribes and can be traced as far back as the ancient Mayans. Annatto seed's deep orange color is used today in cosmetics and to color cheddar cheese!
Other color sources include the sticky orange pulp of the gardenia fruit and chlorophyll, which is extracted from alfalfa to make a grassy-green.




I even let Molly paint.
And that little lady was in heaven!
She usually only gets a few light colored crayons.
This was such a big deal to her, she took it very serious.

 some more info from the site:
GLOB botanically crafted colors are made from fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices with natural food-grade ingredients and organic extracts.

These water-soluble pigments become paint just by adding water. Similar to watercolors, GLOB paints can also be used for a variety of arts and crafts activities.
The vibrant pigments in GLOB™ have been used by different cultures throughout the ages in food, artists' paints and body products.
GLOB™ paints are unmatched in quality and environmental synergy. Created with a focus on sustainability, GLOB pigments are all natural and biodegradable.
From the garden to the studio, GLOB handcrafted paints naturally inspire. Go ahead, GLOB it on™.
GLOB partners with the California Autism Foundation Work Activity Program for assembly and packaging services, which provides vocational skills and experience to people with autism and other developmental disabilities.
GLOB also donates paints to the art program at the California Autism Foundation's Better Chance School.


These little containers are perfect for mixing the right amount of paint.
And clean up was super easy.


for our little craft adventure we only used a quarter of each packet and it was the perfect amount.


Because I love this paint so much I want to share one of Glob's awesome paint kits with someone.
In the kit:
2 bamboo brushes
6 compostable jars with lids (not the metal one's in my picture, these ones are clear)
6 color paint packets (each makes between 1-3 oz of paint)
colors: pomegranate, lemon verbena, berry blue, plum purple, tangerine, and basil green.


All you have to do it leave a comment. Super easy!!
I'm going to let it run until Sunday because I need to get the word out as much as I can about this awesome company.
If you want more info on Glob check out their website where you can order the paints and also find a store near you to buy your own paints.
You can also like them on Facebook under Glob.

So go for it! Leave a comment, let your friends know and as they say over at Glob
Glob it on!

  8. What if I eat it? I read that they're food-grade, but seriously, can I add the Berry-Blue to my smoothie? And if that Lemon Verbena smells the way I imagine it does, then it might wind up sprinkled on a muffin. . .

  9. Love it! My kids are obsessed with paint too and it's a special occasion when I'm willing to break out the paints. Typically my kids just pretend they are paint with their paint brushes which is actually a bit sad. Thanks for sharing such a great product.
