Clementine Art Review and Giveaway



As everyone knows by now I have a wonderful little boy that is 2yrs old and well he has a big imagination for his age and already loves to create and build. I’m a very creative person myself, but my husband on the other hand isn’t creative at all so I was very happy to see “Bug” start being creative with his toys and such so I’ve been looking for different art products and projects that we can work on together to help keep him interested in arts and crafts so when I had the opportunity to review the Clementine Art natural paint set I was thrilled!

About Clementine Art (Taken From Website):


Our Thoughts:


“Bug” and I were sent the Natural Paints from Clementine Art for our crafting pleasure to review. The first and foremost important thing about these natural paints is that they are free from chemical dyes and petrochemicals since I was using them with my toddler. So after trying to decide how I wanted to test these paints I decided to cut a box into four different pieces and let him finger paint them the way he wished.

I started out by introducing him to all six of the colors, which he knew to begin with I just wanted to refresh his memory a little bit. Then I laid out the cardboard pieces so that he could choose the one he wanted to paint and from there I let him choose the colors he wanted to paint with and wiped his finger after every color.




I decided to get in on the fun and make my own art work just so that I would know how these paints worked, yeah right I just wanted to play! But anyways the paints are very smooth and thick enough that they don’t run and drip like other paints I’ve used in the past. Also if you don’t paint with the thickly they dry rather fast, which is great with a toddler.

Here is our Art Work:


The clean up was super easy! At first I was wondering if I had made a mistake letting “Bug” use this paint as finger paint (I knew he would never use a brush) but clean up was very quick and easy! Just add soap and water and the color came right off his hands and arms where he had painted himself just as much as the cardboard! Clean up on our table was very easy as well I just took our normal kitchen cleaner spray and sprayed the table and it just wiped right off leaving the table looking just as it did before with no paint stains at all!

Bottom Line:

I am very impressed with the Natural Paints from Clementine Art and will be using their products with my toddler for a very, very long time! I love that they come in 6 wonderful colors and that clean up is a synch! I would defiantly recommend Clementine Art products to any parent wanting to explore your child’s creative imagination and for teachers and daycares they would also be perfect! They are all very reasonably priced for the high quality art products you are getting and they have several products to choose from not just the paint! I’m looking into getting some more of this paint to let the kids and “Bug’s” next birthday create a huge “Happy Birthday Bug” card :0) to be kept in his scrapbook.
