I always spray a little bit of water after using my pastes, put a food foil and close it really tight and of course I store them upside down. I had problem only with blue patona and since then I do all this and everything is fine. So, now I keep my fingers crossed until friday, I won’t let go so I assume my boyfriend is cooking diner for next two days ;)) Wish me luck!

lou said...

Gorgeous! Store jars upside down helps.

Léna KNERR said...

Hi ! Thanks for the giveaway. I cross my fingers and I share on instagram (@elkahandco).
I keep my mediums safe and moist for long time... : I just close the jar very well... and I use them a lot and very soon... so... they have not the time to dry ah ! ah ! ah !!! Nut I saw how I can do with your rusty paste and acrylic paints on your last video. �� have a nice day. Hug from France.

Anja van der Form said...

I always give them one or two spritzers of water. Best is to keep a spritzer whit boiled water to be sure you get no mould. Store them out of the sun. Have my rustpaste for over a year and it works wonder ful.

Barb Kelley said...

I would love to win this set. The color are lovely. To keep my art mediums from drying out I cover with Glad Press and Seal wrap before putting the lid on. So far it has worked great.

Aristi Moorjackie said...

if you close the jars corectly and put them upside down you prevent them from drying. i wish to win them as birthday gift . your products look amazing

Cathy W said...

Omg! I would love love love to win these products as I am out of work at present and have no spare craft money to spend on them. I love them all!! I would stop the mediums from drying out by always keeping the plastic seal, or use glad wrap,closing the lid tightly to keep air out as soon as finished using them and storing upside down. I can add a spray of water and mix to help also. Thank you so much for this opportunity to own these amazing products. 😘

suruha said...

Oh, yeah! This is awesome!

These paints and colors are divine! Keeping the lid on tightly and storing the jars upside-down will help keep the paints moist and safe for long use!

Now, I just want to give this a try! I hope I win some!

Thank you! Good luck to all!

barbara said...

These products can be kept moist by not leaving the lid off for extended periods of time, by storing them upside down, by giving a little spritz of water before closing container. Better yet use it up and get more. 😊😊😊

Cathy (Katy) said...

Omg!!! I would love love love to win these new products. I am out of work at the moment and have no spare craft money to purchase anything. I would keep the mediums from drying out by always keeping the plastic seal or maybe using glad wrap, screwing the lid back on tightly to keep out any air as soon as I’d finished using it and storing them upside down. I can also add a spray of water and mix well if necessary. Thank you so much for the opportunity to own these amazing products of yours 😘 I have shared the competition details on Facebook.

Crea-red said...

1. Put plastic lit back
2. Put some water inside
3. Close it as tightly as you can
4. Store it upside down
5. Put some plastic rap under the draw
6. Some use glittering (?)

I am in love with these colors, so i pray

Tiitonyy said...

Unfortunately I miss all the translation of the video to know how to keep the mediums long. For my part no medium is never lost, there are always tricks, mine is that once opened a jar, I put food film on it again and I leave it until the end of the pot. This prevents this dries quickly. And if it dries a little, just add a little water and mix well. Nothing is really lost there is always a solution to everything. Thank you Anna for the luck you give to win these great products. Fingers crossed.

seal jars tightly & store upside down

Laineynich said...

Store upside down, inner lid in place and outer lid screwed on tight to lesson chances of air drying paint out. Spritz in jar with water.
Great products, have a number of your products now but looking forward to exploring and experimenting with the new range sometime!

Patricia Herrera said...

Hi there! Thank you for this opportunity - I love all of your beautiful products. I squirt a bit of water in the jar before closing up and if dry when reopening, another squirt and a stir. As the video states, I replace the seal when closing the lid and store it upside down because as you said there's less air that gets in that way!

rashmi Panwar Rana said...

Hello. Store it upside down, put some water inside, seal the jar tightly.

Lashea Workman said...

You can make sure the lid is tight and turn the jars upside down so no air can get to them. Yah love your new product line...cant wait!!!

Johnna said...

Add water and screw the cap on tight and shake. Store the jars upside down. Gorgeous colors this release. Can't wait to see the projects created by the design team using these. Shared the video and blog post.

Amy Martin said...

I have to admit.. I got so caught up in the excitement and the video itself, I had to watch it twice because I forgot about the question the first time. Lol Loving all the new wonderful colors and the pastes.. Answer: keep the seal tab and make sure to put it back on before the lid, make sure the lid is snug. Also can add spitz of water before sealing. I do appreciate that you are looking at a new design for the lid to help with this too. Fingers crossed!!!!

Shirley Brown said...

Love and adore all your products and the few I have are keeping me occupied as I recover from very painful dental surgery! I store mine upside down now and before closing the lid tightly, I spritz with boiled water. What a great "pick-me-up" it would be to win this generous give-away. Txs for the opportunity.

Store upside down covered w seran wrap and add a bit of water if I see them drying out

Shirley Brown said...

Great fantastic products! As I recover from very painful dental surgery I'm playing with the rust paste. It's the one thing making me smile right now. I'm storing my pots upside down after spritzing with boiled water and tightening up the lids. What a great "pick-me-up" this would be during my recovery! Txs for the opportunity.

Julie Schinkel said...

Hi Anna, thank you so much for this awesome giveaway! I’m so in love with your products and these new colours are gorgeous! To best store you can spritz with a little water after use, place plastic wrap over the jar before closing the lid up tightly and store upside down. I also use glycerine with distilled/demineralised water to reactivate any pastes that have dried out. It takes a little work but it’s worth it as they perform perfectly. No need to throw them out at all ������

leslie tromski said...

placing them upside down keeps air pockets from forming which helps with medium not drying out

Jon David Lowe said...

I’ve tried to post a response but it is not showing up. I use plastic wrap on top, add water if they start to dry out and then store upside down.

Pooja Sharma said...

Hi Anna thank you for awesome product and mixed media minutes new realise summer 2018 is also fantastic gorgeous colors and paste as usual,as you said in video and other there I also use little water in my quick drying mediums and stir well after use,also keep them upside down,I make sure to cover it with plastic lit back and close it thightly

Wanda General said...

You can add a little water or glycerine if you are in hot areas.Close lids tightly with plastic wrap between liner and lids. Store upside down.
These are amazing products, as usual and I can't wait to try them out! Thanks Finnbair!

Saadia Nawaz said...

Thank you for the opportunity.
Replace plastic seal, spritz tz little water, keep the lid tightly closed.

Kathi said...

Wonderful new additions to your product lines! Keep 'em fluid by replacing the inner seal, closing the lid tightly, and store them upside down.

Preeti D. (aka Dutt Preety) said...

Gorgeous new products :) thanks for the chance ! In answer to tge question: Storing the products upside down & making sure lid & seal are tightly closed, squirting with water. Thanks for the useful tips!

mishala said...

These are so beautiful and I can't wait to try them all. Thanks for the opportunity to get a set from you! For my mediums, I spray a little bit of water in them, tip from you! and I close the lid tight. It's kept them moist. I have also used a baby wipe in my Inka Gold style mediums, which has worked like a charm...(another awesome tip from you)

Uto4ka Юлия said...

So far, the only life hack for me is to keep all the colorful products in a closed place from the light

Veena Chowdhry said...

I am so excited, fingers crossed. I love the new colors and can’t get them because they are out of stock already..
Place the bottle lid plastic back before closing.
Add some water.
Use cellophane sheet to cover the bottle opening before putting the lid back.
Close the lid airtightly.

Veena Chowdhry said...

Not sure my comment is not posting. Hope it is not posted multiple times.
I am so excited for this giveaway.. I just love Finnabair products like others. :). Keeping my fingers crossed as I couldn’t get them online, they already got out of stock. :(

Sue Kendrick said...

Sometimes I keep my products too long and they go bad. The thing to do is use them up. Now I know to store them upside down and spritz with water to make them last longer. The new colors are beautiful. I want to try them all! Thank you for the chance to win.

trish ely said...

put a small piece of saran wrap on top of the product before closing it and store the jars upside down. If needed spray with a little water to re moisten and stir. Also try and not use a dirty brush in the jar.. take some of the product out to use.... I am sooo looking forward to playing with the new rust pastes!!! love all the colors

Nina said...

To keep my art mediums from drying out I give them one or two spritzers of water,cover them with Glad Press before putting the lid on, and storing the jars upside-down .

Deborah Cox said...

Oh my you've done it again, your new releases are divine, thanks for the opportunity to win. Spray a little water, put that lid on good and tight and store upside down helps to keep the longer.

Geri Stuart said...

Store upside down is the best to keep these beautiful colors fresh! I wish I had the courage to just try making something with them but I'm afraid I'd mess up and they are too beautiful to do that! Maybe someday...

Luz Miranda said...

shared !! love your products, wishing you'll come back to Oregon !!! spray with water, seal tight & store upside down !! good luck to me !!!

Agnieszka Rzezutka said...

Hi
Thank you very much for so great opportunity to win your fabulous products.
To prevent them from drying the best is to store jars upside down. You can add cling film before put lid on it. Also you can add little bit water and stir well.

Agnieszka Rzezutka said...

Hi
Thank you for this awesome opportunity to win those beautiful opal magic paint and paste. I never win anything before then finger cross
To prevent them from drying the best is to keep them upside down. Also you can add cling film before put lid on the jar. And last trick it's add little bit of water and stir well.

Маги said...

Put some water inside the jar. Put plastic lit back and close it as tightly as you can. Store it upside down.
Thank you for the opportunity!

Sarah (Debbie) said...

Spritz a little boiled cool water. Use cling film over top of jar and tighten jar lid over this. Keep them upside down.

Bless you Anna for doing a give away. Always you care about your customers xxx

popi & my art said...

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a give away!
So I do all the above plus I have one extra mini mister with a bit of water and glycerin in it. I shake it really well and spritz in the jar before storing. I Usually use the lied of the jar as a palette take with my palette knife the amount I think I will need and put it there. So I have the jar closed. Sometimes it depends on the label printing some labels faint of or their color mixes with the paint.( I have seen that also on the modeling paste the color of the label was going in the paste). I think that doing these steps help me to save them from drying out and play with them longer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you Anna for the chance to winn fingers crossed!!!

Craftypurpledragon said...

Wow what a fantastic giveaway. I spritz then close the lid tightly with the seal in place and store them upside down.

Johanna's scrappy corner said...

This is really an amazing giveaway!

To keep my jars fresh I sprits some water and then plastic wrap under the lid and tighten...... have'nt thought about turning them upside down so I Will defenitly try that😊
Thank you for the chance to be able to win these awesome goodies!

Viktoriya Porechnaya said...

I close the jar very well and added some water if it becomes dry and mix it very carefully. Tnanks for chance to in these great release!

Pam said...

Gorgeous products, you make using them look so easy. I didn't know that it was best to store them up side down, it would be great to have an inner cap. I hope that these will arrive in your store soon. They are all beautiful but the northern lights and old wall sets are must haves.

Althea said...

Hi, if you store your paint upside down this will help them to last longer. Also spritz a little water onto the pastes & close lid tightly..
Absolutely love your products & all the above are on my must buy list !!!
Thank you for the chance to win ��

Arantzazu said...

Wow!!!!
Ok, spraying a little bit of water inside, closing correctly the bottle and having them upside down
Fingers crossed....��

Mary Gerald Phillips said...

Store them upside down. Love your videos and products!

Madame Doudou said...

Store jars upside down

Meraki said...

To avoid the products form drying it is good to add a little water after every time you use them, also keep them well closed even inside zip bags. And also store them upside down! It’s working for me. 🙂

Zvezdica Perlica said...

ooo i am in love
the answer: spray with wather, put the plastic top back on close the cover tightly and store it upside down

made by idaho said...

Hi!!! I would love to try all of your amazing products!
I have some similar trick to keep art mediums safe like: a bit of water, store upside down, close tightly. If I have a big jar with modelling paste I put inside a piece of baby wipes.

Giorgia Rossini said...

I would love to win, thanks! I keep my jar upside down to store them.

Megs said...

Keep the lid tab, spray some water, and close the bottle tight. Store the bottle upside down to minimize the air from coming into the bottle.
I totally love the new colors and the new texture pastes 😍💕

Roxana Carranza said...

Eek! They are gorgeous. The answer is to store the jars upside down. 💕😉❤️💕

Anita said...

I love your products - so much fun, awesome color and very adaptable. I keep my supplies in good shape by putting plastic wrap on container before screwing lid back on and storing upside down. I recently heard that you can get plumblers tape, used to seal pipes well, run that along the top edge of container and put the lid back on - I want to try this next. Thank you for the opportunity to create and win!!

Eva Jura said...

I would so much love to win these amazing new products! I'm actually new to Finnabair products, so I don't have so many of them, but with those I have, I had never a problem with drying, but we live in an area, where we have lake and rain, so maybe, it helps. I also put the lid tide, and I never throw the seal that is under the lid away, I always keep it on the jars. It also helps to store them upside down or to spray a bit of water inside the jars.

Julie Wasson said...

I use water, either mixed in or sprayed on top.

Clemencia R said...

Making sure the medium is closed tightly and sometimes put plastic wrap before closing it :)

Louise said...

I seal them tight, store them upside down in a covered plastic bin
beautiful new colors, thanks for the chance to add them to my collection :)

Allie Dmi said...

I take a bit of medium I need for work and put it into a separate smaller jar, so I can use it while I work on the particular project, and the rest of medium sits tight sealed on the shelves, not disturbed by staying opened for some time while I am busy creating. Just like we use the palettes for paints)

Gerri Herbst said...

Oh what a lovely set to win. I cover my products with Sarin wrap before closing, some I store upside down and finally I spiritz waterbon top when need to keep them from drying our.

Nadia Fiortino said...

Wow. First of all thanks for this chance.... I store jar upside down, I put some water inside and I close very well the jar. Have a nice day to all

I use food foil for Rust pastes and for the paints I keep them upside down.

Kaz Hall said...

Love love love your videos, so inspirational! I would love the chance to create with the new goodies.... to look after the paints you need to spritz a little water, place the top back on tight and store them upside down xx

Anna Christina Allen said...

These are beautiful. I live in a humid climate but closing tightly, turning upside down, and storing in a dark place works well. 💖

Jannie Jensen said...

I spray a little water on it and keep it wrapped in plastic, if i need it again.

Marci said...

Hi! In your video you said keep the plastic seal paper, spritz a small bit of water, use plastic wrap and store upside down, lid tight. Beautiful new products!

jazzyscrapper said...

Loving your new products!
By keeping the jars tightly closed and upside down they should not dry out.

Giuliana Ballatore said...

I love your new product release: richness of colors...variety..and those wonderful gems♡ to prevent products from dry it is helpful to store them upside down, put a string of paper roll or washi around the cap tap. I do not put them in plastic bag becauseit helps moulds grow...in not sunny place such as wooden box for me is the best

Aya Elsheshtawy آية الششتاوي said...

Kristina Alshevskaya said...

At first, thank you so much for this amazing chance! It was really difficult for me ,cause I didn't use my English for about 10 years) )) The advise is: to close the jar very well and storage them upside down. I'm sure, that my friends in IG will be interested (profile @busy_mama.by )��

Jess Larios said...

I store my paints upside down, but if needed I use a little water to bring the paint back to life. As always I store all my paints indoors away from sunlight. This new release is fabulous! The colors look so luscious! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed. I was just at Michael's the other day and they were out of stock on pretty much all your products... I was so sad! But then I saw this, this morning! Thank you for this opportunity Finnabair! If I win I can't wait to share my projects!

LeeTeeIB said...

I’ve been fortunate and haven’t had issues with drying mediums. I store my mediums in a cool area. I’ve heard that if you lightly spritz them before sealing them correctly before putting away will help prevent this. Would love to win and am keeping my fingers crossed.

Unknown said...

Hi
just love all this stuff...I have bought almost everything there is.
I store them upside down...in an airtight container.

michboo said...

I store them upside down, and check on them every month. I give them a good stir and spritz them with water, thanks for this chance to win your beautiful products. Your products make me feel cosy and warm, being a vintage and industrial lover. I get so excited when you have new releases, and try and buy them when I can afford them. But I appreciate every single one I have, they are like little pots of magic. Thank you Finnabair, for bringing so much joy to our lives 🙂😘🙂

Cathy Frailey said...

I cannot WAIT to get my hands on these - I've been looking everywhere for pre-ordering and no one is offering it! Keep everything moist by closing tightly and storing upside down. I've also used a few drops of water and it brings everything back. But these new colors won't have time to dry out!

Lady Bright said...

I find that using a bit of plastic wrap and storing the bottles upside down solves the problem in my very dry room. I love the brilliant colors, and they are so easy to use with great diversity.

Katie Lamb said...

I store mine away from direct sunlight, keep the containers sealed correctly and i dont leave them open while i craft. I just take a bit out i need and seal it back up again.

Shawna Pagano said...

I’m as excited as you are about this new line, the color combinations are gorgeous. The art mediums should be stored upside down to keep as much air out. You should use the barrier between the lid & jar of paint, or you can use some plastic. If the mediums are getting too thick, a light spray of water can also be added before closing the lid.

Autumn Clark - SewPaperPaint said...

Congrats on a great new release! Storing them upside down is a great tip and adding mineral water so there is no mold issue. Thanks for the chance to win, Autumn

Joan Currie said...

I so love my rust paints and my opals! They brighten a dull day🌞 my trick if cling film under my lids.make super they tight and then store them upside down (when I remember!) Thank you for the opportunity to be apart if your fabulous giveaway. (IG ✔ FB✔)

Uroocreations said...

OMG!!!! This is such fantastic giveaway. I love everything about Finnabair.
Thank you so much for sharing such amazing tips and concepts about how to maintain our so precious art medium. As being microbiologist, I always use boiled,and clean water to give them one or two spritzers of water, which definitely makes it out of mould and any type of microbial contamination. I keep all bottles tightly packed. Store all of them on ambient temperature. I bought my rust paste and patina pastes since I started my crafting, for over a year and all work wonderful.
I love them all and really excited to many more.
Thanks so much for this incredibly awesome giveaway.
Shared and keeping my fingers crossed to win these so delicious and yummy goodies.

Lots of love

Margarita Shkludova said...

Hello! I am very excited about new products. I've just recently been able to buy opal magic and sparks while I went to my vacation, because in my country its are not for sale. Now I'm doing work with its and this is an extraordinary feeling, delight!
Thank you for the opportunity to win new items!

My answer is to close the jar very well and storage them upside down.

But if the paints or pastes have already thickened, I add a little bit of water and mix well.

I sprits a little bit of water and store them up side down. Love the new colors and hope for luck.

Darianna Neko said...

So inspirative new products! Thank you for the opportunity!
To prevent the drying of paints and pastes I use a food film and also whenever possible I try to leave a protective metal foil which usually are located on the top of the bottle by the manufacturer!

Shine said...

Wow so sweet. Would add some water nd place bottle upside down this will save the color from drying

Becky Best said...

Hello Finn from Indiana in the U.S.

I took your last class in Merrillville, Indiana, in May.

Love, love, love the new products. Always put the lids back on to keep out air, store them upside down to help with air, and you can also spritz some water in the jar before putting the lid back on.

Thanks for the giveaway and I hope my lucky stars are shining!

Hugs, Becky

Ash x said...

Add a little water to the product before putting inner seal back on, or use cling film. Then screw on lid securely and leave upside down. I love all of your new releases and hopefully I will either buy them or win them. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Koteshwar A said...

lovely! just love these❤..

I usually keep the caps of the container as tight as possible, sometimes put plastic wrap over the neck before closing the lids.
I always make sure that the wet crafting materials are in normal room temperature and keep it away from direct sunlight.

Theresa said...

I keep them fresh by closing g them tightly. I also store them upside down. Then...before all that, I put a wiper in there to keep it fresher!!!

Mirabelka said...

What a lovely giveaway! Tips that were helpful for me : storing jars upside down, adding some water inside, closing jars very tight.

Aga said...

Store jars upside down with properly closed lid, few drops of water inside. Also I’m keeping them away from the sun inside of plastic zip bags.

Марина Коваленко said...

Store upside down by first adding a little water))
Wonderful materials))

Peggy Elvington said...

Love the products, and the hints I received for the giveaway are to closely tighten the lids and store upside down. The rust paste textures may need a spritz of water, and I think they all might beneifit from a spritz of water when needed, covering with a plastic wrap, even a seal of glycerin. I would love the built in inspiration of using these products, and thanks to the video I believe I am ready to jump in and try them. It would be something lovely to do during our Texas heat wave as I recover from cataract surgery.

Pixie Bitter said...

I love this new products! To keep it safe you can put some water inside and always put plastic lit back

Heather Thompson said...

I store my mediums upside down and I spray a little shot of water in them after every use. Makes them last a boat load longer. It doesn't alter the consistency or colour. Its worked great for years! Thank for this awesome chance!

Nora said...

Lovely products! I close the jars tight... Untill now I have not had any problems...

Wendy Lambert said...

OMG! Would love to win these, I am a huge fan of your products. I have some waxes and paint but none of the opal magic yet. I didn't know about storing them upside down, what a great tip. For my mediums I use plastic wrap before putting the lid on.

Lisa Amiet said...

All you need is alight spray of water and for the liner and lid to be tightly closed and you will have loads of time to enjoy your new treasures! Thanks for the chance to win!

Kate Yetter said...

I have found out the hard way...close the lid tightly! I have wasted so many expensive containers of texture paste this way.

Jackie Clark said...

I watched the video avidly when it came out, and was hoping that my local scrapbooking store would have them in stock when I was there on Tuesday, but alas not.

The tip you shared to help keep the mediums from drying out was to store them upside down.

Fingers crossed!

Audrey Mislan said...

Spritz with a light mist of water as needed.

kari said...

Use plastic wrap over paint before closing lid, store upside down, moisten paint a bit after using.

Sherry Tipton said...

Put the lid on tightly and store upside-down out of direct sunlight. Pick me, pick me...LOL...loving all the colors, just magical!

Supriya VP said...

To keep the product moist we close the jar tight and store it upside down so that even lesser air gets in

moni said...

Spritz the pastes with a little water, place some plastic wrap on jar before replacing lid, make sure lid is closed tightly and store upside down. Love Finnabair products! ��

leannes scrappy stuff said...

Awesome new products can't wait! Keep lids on tight, add spray water and turn upside down. Just love your products, and your share so much valuable info thanks Anna.

Ксения Веснина said...

Oooh... new products are amazing! a few days ago I had a dream about how I worked with a new paste)))How to keep the mediums dry? it is very good to close the lid))) And do not keep the jar long open when you work. Sometimes you can add some water if the manufacturer allows

Anindita bose said...

Hi it my first ever participation in giveaway...thank you so much...just love ur products...n the new release is awesome....i keep my fingers cross...I keep them safe by keeping them upside down and...keep the original seal intact...closely them tightly of course...thank you love anindita.

Unknown said...

Love, love 💕 all of your products. I am obsessed. I close my jars well, add a little spritz of water if it starts feeling a little dry.

Toni said...

After use I always spray a bit of distilled water and mix. Making sure around the edges of my jars are clean and then I apply lid tightly and store upside down. I've only had the drying happen once with my brown rust paste and ever since then I have taken a bit more care and haven't experienced any problems.

Fantastic colours. To keep them fresh: Close the lid, and keep the plastic circle inside the lid on. Store them up side down. You can also add some water or glycerine :)

If they are stored upside down and with the extra inside lid on they stay moist longer. You can also sprinkel a little water in the paste before closing the lid.

Store them upside down will help prevent drying

I think the products are already designed by the manufacturers so they do not dry out. But I take care of all the mix media products that you used is to carefully clean the thread and the lid before closing it. That's enough, because they actually dry with the bacteria that are in the air, so the product that was on the air was not cleaned. is in contact with what is inside that is from my experience in several of the many mix media products that I normally use. I know it's already closed. but I wanted to leave my opinion. Very good week for all.

Woweee! I have 3 art alchemy paints and love them !!! Best way to keep them from drying infuessnisnto keep the seal, make sure jar is well closed. I’ve had my rust paste, all my mediums for quite a long time and they are all still good to use. No drying up. Of course I do t contaminate products - always use a clean brush ♥️

Hey It would be amazing to win these products! I just can't get enough of them! To keep the mediums from drying out add a spritz of water and make sure they are sealed tightly with the liner and cap. Also store them upside down!!

Oh no I missed the give away but that’s ok I think I’m going to share anyway, these colors are just too gorgeous not to. As someone who lives in the very dry high desert of Southern California, I’m happy to say I’ve never had a problem with your products drying out on me. It’s very easy to prevent that from happening, all you have to do is make just sure when your finished using it, just close the lids thightly sonthey are nice and snug then simply store them upside down. This not only ensures it won’t dry out because now the air can’t get in but it also lets you see more of the products beautiful colors, though I admit it at times it maybe be more challenging when you need to just select one color. Finnabair thank you once again for sharing your magical creativity and inspiring people around the world, it has definitely made it a much more colorful and beautiful place. Also I just can’t wait to get my hands on these and try them all out!
