    I wouldn’t think so. The colorant would be just a pigment that would not evaporate from the paint. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) aka Non-Methane Hydrocarbons (NMHC) in paint would evaporate into the air as the paint dries, but not much after the paint has fully dried. If the pigment is a natural plant-based pigment that was not fully separated from the rest of the plant matter, there may be low levels of VOCs emitted. For example: if you are using green pigment from spinach and the colorant still smells like spinach, then that smell is from a VOC. However, if the scented part of the spinach has been removed, then chances are that all of the other VOCs have been refined away. Low levels of VOCs occur in nature and many of them are in the form of benzene-based odorous molecules. Not all VOCs have an odor, but many do.
