To the uninitiated, the claustrophobic confines of Wet Paint might be daunting. This store squeezes every usable inch out of its Grand Avenue space. But what you lose in breathing room you gain in merchandise and experience. The staff knows where to find things and how to use them—they are helpful to a fault. Nestled near the Macalester College campus in St. Paul, Wet Paint is the go-to spot for local students, but hobbyists and professionals will also find what they need. Wondering what kind of modeling clay is best for your son's elementary school project? Searching for a fancy refill cartridge for your pen? Just looking for inspiration? It's all here. Each visit to Wet Paint makes you feel like a kid again. So get out those crayons and go to town!
