After doing a few of these tests I learned to lightly rub the tip of the tester into the paint for 30 seconds, don't mash it in too hard or you wont get good results.
All in all this worked great. They really should put the information on there website in the instructions though.
*I tried another brand, the First Alert Lead Test Kit, and it does have an option for testing dark-colored items, with a quantitative result chart that shows approximately how much lead is present in your sample, as opposed to the quick swab yes/no (more like "huh?") result this lesser Homax test. Get The First Alert Lead Test instead.
**FINAL EDIT: Both of the aforementioned lead test kits gave false positive results. Unfortunately, I found out only after I'd already hired a lead abatement firm, whose professional detection equipment confirmed there was no lead where these little test kits had shown positive results. Save your money for the pros and get an accurate result before you start worrying like I did for no reason.
With this test's inability to register unsafe lead levels at around 5 ppm, I have to wonder, why take a test if you can't trust the results?
A false negative is a false sense of security.
