I live in Michigan and I went to order some water based paints today. The company I was ording from couldn't guarantee they wouldn't freeze in transit. Anyone run into this problem?
I'm looking for some Polytranspar or wildlife colors anyone know where to look localy?

The Wildlife Colors are freeze/thaw stable, check www.smithpaints.com

Thats good to know I wonder if polytranspar is the same?

I cannot find a manufacturer, or any info on those paints other than at Wasco, so call them and see is all I can tell you, but Smith adding that bit to their site would make it just as worry free as it could be for me.

Yeah besides that I wish I could find these paints localy I'm sick of paying a fortune for shipping.

I just got some kreatex the other day with no problem, also our temps will be in the 50's next week if they can ship right away.

The place I'm ordering from is in South Dakota. When I called he said thier temps werent suppose to get above freezing. The wildlife colors should be fine but I'm worried about the Polytranspar. I hate to spend $100 and chance somehting happening. I called UPS and they said if its being shipped ground servise chances are it could freeze. They just stick the stuff in the back of a simi truck. Those things get just as cold as outside they might as well put the box on the roof of it. Oh well I figure something out.
