International shipping

Wet Paint is happy to provide service to our international customers, if shipping to that location is possible. You may place your order immediately; however, no shipping estimate will be given online. Once the order is received, Wet Paint staff will contact the customer by e-mail with the best shipping estimate possible. Orders with low dimensional weight average $25-50 USD to many locations. No international order is processed until the shipping & handling cost is approved by the customer. You may also write directly to us at with a list of the items you are interested in (add them from the store and copy them to an e-mail, for instance) and a Wet Paint staff person will contact you and give you an estimate. We will adjust the order upon receipt to include the approved shipping costs.

Please note: In some cases, there can be difficulty processing international credit cards online. If you receive a decline message referencing Address Verification, please email the store so that we can more directly assist with the order.

Canadian customers

Our website payment processor sometimes cannot verify Canadian addresses. If you see an address verification error when ordering, please call the store to order or email us a list of the items you are interested in and we will reply with a shipping quote. Payment will be taken by phone, but we can often prepare the order in advance.



If items are not in stock, the customer will be notified. No additional shipping charges are assessed for backorders, unless the customer wishes to add items to the backorder, in which case standard shipping rates are applied.



Shipping is non-refundable. Shipping errors made by Wet Paint or product damaged in shipping are the responsibility of Wet Paint; in correcting the error, no further shipping charges will be assessed, unless the customer adds product to the original order. If the customer has made the error in ordering, they are responsible for shipping and must return the product in saleable condition to Wet Paint before credit for the product can be issued. In the cases of customer error, Wet Paint can arrange shipping for the customer, but the customer is responsible for payment of the additional shipping.


Coupons Codes and Special Promotions

We do not distribute coupon codes to marketing websites. Valid coupon codes will be distributed directly from us or a partnering organization or artist, specific to a particular promotion. Any coupon codes found online are invalid and likely a phishing scam.

Some promotions, like Buy X Get Y, do not compute during ordering and are handled manually.


California Customers

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. Some common art materials that contain these chemicals are solvents and solvent based products including paints, mediums and adhesives & heavy metal pigments.


Gift Cards

Wet Paint Gift Cards are not currently compatible with our website payment processing system. Please call the store to place an order using a Gift Card. 651-698-6431


Scam & Fraud Statement

We screen diligently for credit card fraud and pursue fraudulent orders to the full extent of the law.



All customers are notified if any variances from these policies are necessary due to the nature of their order. In these cases the customer must approve any changes before the order is processed.
