Big Imperfect Tube: Solvent-Free Gel (Qty. 1)
Ever since we introduced Solvent-Free Gel in 2013 it’s been a top-seller, year-after-year. It’s a staple for Plein Air and for artists looking to remove any and all solvents from their process.
These Big Imperfect Tubes are full of perfectly good Solvent-Free Gel. And they’re full of potential.
Here are their two main issues:
- Lables. Our Solvent-Free Gel and Galkyd Gel labels are twice as big as the Artist Grade labels and they're put on the same size tube. For our Packaging Team, these jumbo labels are a lot trickier to get straight and wrap evening. And because they go in a window-ed box for retail, it's important that the labels align with the window.
- Density. Unlike oil paint that’s packed with pigment, tubes of Solvent-Free Gel and Galkyd Gel are made from safflower and soybean oils. It’s softer, lighter, and more fragile to handle. So we get more dents than with paint. But hey, all tubes get dented with the first squeeze of use anyway.
