This is probably what most people think of when they think "fabric paint." This is the stuff that usually is used to write words on t-shirts for sports or fundraisers or whatever that end up being shiny and raised and it works pretty well for those sorts of projects! I, on the other hand, didn't want to use it for its dimensional properties and instead smoothed out the paint. But despite it being able to become raised/dimensional, I found this stuff to have pretty bad coverage when spread out. I actually found that it worked better if I painted down a layer of white and then brushed this on top of that, since otherwise I would have needed to layer and layer and layer on the yellow to get an opaque shape over the fabric (though my fabric was black, so that kind of comes with the territory). I don't really have any comment on the nozzle, since I squirted the paint onto a palette and brushed it on.

I will say that no matter how you apply this, it does dry "slick" as in it looks shiny/wet even when dully dried. The areas where this is applied look especially glossy, so that's something to keep in mind. Also, since this stuff is the slick version, it dries to a more rubbery/plastic consistency (which makes it easy to peel off my plastic paint palette if I don't clean it off right away and it dries) and is therefore much less flexible than the "soft" versions of fabric paint Tulip offers. This sits on top of the fabric more, rather than soaking into it, so there's probably a greater risk of it peeling off or cracking with time/washing/use, simply because the nature of paint is designed to be able to hold onto its dimensional shape.

Overall, not a bad product, but there are just a few things to keep in mind about using it.
