Great paint for active painters
on July 24, 2010
- Quality paint, vibrant colors, not thin or transparent
- Great price per ounce
- Need different containers use paint out of.
- If you buy a bunch of colors, storing the bottles of paint starts to take up space
I was looking for inexpensive paint so my kids could go hog wild painting anytime they wanted without breaking the bank. My girls would burned through typical paint sets in no time. This fit the bill. I bought 10 different colors of Crayola Artista II paint. You get a lot paint for your money with these 16oz jars, but you need to buy something to store the point in that is kid friendly. You're not going to be able to dip you paint brush in these paint containers. If you just squirt some on a palate, then you will end up through a lot of paint away after each painting session. You also lose a lot of paint if you rinse out a single brush between colors. My solution was to buy 10 paint cups and 10 paint brushes one for each color. It works great; my little girls have fun and don't have to worry about running out of paint.
For paint containers and paint brushes I bought
- Chenille Kraft No-Spill Round Paint Cups
- Chenille Kraft Preschool Paint Brush Assortment
I like the bushes; a lot of brushes with good variety of styles and widths.
I'm not a fan of the paint cups. They work alright, but they don't seal very well so the paint may dry out over time. See my review on the product page: http://www.amazon.com/Chenille-Kraft-No-Spill-Round-Assortment/dp/B000JL54II/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1280030345&sr=8-3
