While going through my makeup, soaps, nail polishes, and more, I realized I hadn’t checked my art supplies. So, I contacted the company that makes the conventional gouache I had lying around from my university days, assuming they’d be able to provide the information I needed. I received this response:

‘Thank you for reaching out to us. Although we are unable to provide the EN-71 or Material Safety Data Sheet for the requested item, rest

Pamela Hoke, Eco Artist
