I had a shock last night while working on a LO. I use my Distress Stains on most every LO. I have over 30 colors and it is one of my FAVE products. I pulled out three colors and found that two of them, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick came out of the bottle like brown water. I was shocked. Worn Lipstick is a bright coral and Victorian Velvet is a softer mauve pink.
I am pretty confident that I have them stored where this should not happen. They are stored upright in a box so there is no light or extreme temps on them. I plan to write to Ranger Ink but I wonder if this is a fluke or if some of you have had a color degrade or fade? Needless to say since I have so many I don't want this to become a habit!
I did a test of all of my bottles and those are the only two this had happened to so far. Most of my bottles are still pretty full, I have use only 10% to 25% of the product.
HERE IS THE TEST ON MY LABELS SHEET: (you can see at the bottom another test of the Worn Lipstick.

I LOVE MY STAINS! I hope this is just a weird thing that happened to those two.
Today I got in touch with Ranger via Customer Service on their website. They responded to my messaged immediately and ask me a few questions about when the daubers were purchased and the codes on the bottom of the bottles.
Thank you for your note and enthusiasm for Ranger products! Sorry for the trouble with your Distress Stains. I checked out the link and it looks like there could be an issue with the preservative in the stains
So I sent them the info and they are mailing me replacement Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick! YEA RANGER!
