What is the shelf life of Parma water paints if they are not opened?

I don't think I've ever heard a particular shelf life mentioned. If I had some old paint, & I do, I'd open some to see how thick they had become.. I'd then thin them down for brushing or airbrushing. Sometimes, even newly purchased acrylic paints are too thick for use direct from the bottle without thinning first..

As long as the seal isn't broken, I'd guess several years at least

I don't recall any of my Parma's having a seal. I have a few unused bottles, I'll dig them out for a look tomorrow.

Mine have been opened for years.  Seal or no seal.
They are lasting great.
