Post our paint
There is now a dedicated Facebook page for the Post our Paint Campaign. Just click on the picture to go to it.
However to briefly recap:
Royal mail told me that the Civil Aviation Authority and the Department of Transport were responsible for the water based paint restriction being imposed.
I’ve since written to the CAA and it turns out this isn’t the case at all. As all my Reaper paint comes in via air freight from the US I think they night have said something to me if it had been.
So, RM haven’t been exactly truthful, whether by accident or design. They are now saying its actually because paint in transit can leak and cause damage to other packages. This is a fair point, though why 600ml of paint is safe yet 650ml isn’t has yet to be explained. Oh and 1 Litre of alcohol is safe too, even in a glass container!
The dialogue goes on but if you want to help out please sign the petition or write to RM directly, and politely ask why they have brought in this restriction. If you tweet, that seems the best way to get hold of them.
