I never thought I'd buy something from Bob Ross, even though he was a cheerful little painter with his "happy trees." However, an artist friend of mine recommended this to me when she saw my hands with Cadmium Red paint permanently worked into the nails and callouses. Oil Paints contain many chemicals that are highly toxic, like Cadmium, so it is very important for painters to protect their skin while they work. Gloves are definitely NOT an option for me, as half the fun is feeling the paint, not to mention getting a firm grip on your brush! This product is a lotion that provides an invisible layer to the skin, and allows paint to easily wash off with soap and water. You do have to work a generous amount on to your hands and over the wrists, being sure to work it in well around your knuckles and fingernails.

I noticed that Michael's Arts and Crafts has this product on clearance, so I stocked up while I could. I wish it came in a larger size since I still end up with paint on my feet, arms and neck, much to my husband's wonder and dismay! What can I say? I get lost in my painting and have been known to let a brush drop now and then!

  1. I used to love watching Bob Ross on PBS when I was little. Kinda hypnotizing. But I had no idea he made painting products...thanks for the heads up!

  2. I remember watching him too! I don't care for his work but he he was such a calm and cheerful soul! Now I can't live without this product, so he has a special place in my heart!

    I used to love watching Bob Ross on PBS.. he must have studied hypnotism the way he talked ;-) I use his Painters Glove lotion for painting and any other messy job including working on my car.
