I find it very odd that it never says anywhere on the packaging or instructions exactly what kind of paint this is.
If you prime your car as another reviewer suggested it actually makes things worse. The paint doesn't stick and goes on very thin where the brush pushes it and gums up in globs where you lift the brush.
Over raw wood it looks *ok* for the first coat (but still a bit gummy). On subsequent coats the existing paint is "re-liquified" and mixes together as others have mentioned.
Unless the prospect of sanding your car completely down to bare wood and starting over sounds fun to you, I'd go with a high quality acrylic as suggested by many online sources.
I should add that we tried using an artist's quality brush in addition to the foam and plastic ones in the kit, but this did not improve the result.
I primed the car as I've done in the past and put a white base coat on so my son could accent it as he pleased. Paint goes on extremely thin. Anemic would be a good word. He tried going a little thicker and after letting it dry it could be scraped right off. I figured it wouldn't adhere to the base coat. So, I sanded it down and reprimed the car. Sanded with 220 grit and let him go for it again. Thinnest pain I've ever dealt with. Despite that, if you catch a dry section with another color, as any 7 year old will do, they'll mix.
My wife is going to the arts store tomorrow to pick up some quality paint.
I still have my pinewood derby cars from my childhood (and the paint is still on them). Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Don't settle for this set.

Agree with other reviews - awful paint that coats poorly and runs when you try to paint one color on another. Buy Apple Barrel instead.Published on January 29, 2014 by Michael T. Towns
