Fancy Fabric Paint Set
not just for craft projects
Bought these to personalize for a birthday party. I find I use them all the time - to label pencil cases for school, to decorate a nintendo game case, to ID glasses cases. Paint is durable. Bottles are large size - haven't used one up yet. Colors are bright.

Does not show up.
This paint did not show up on my colored canvas bags. I painted the bags twice and it still did not show up on bags. The paint is too thin but does leave a nice sheen. I tried it on white and barely showed up. Very disappointed.

I have ordered fabric paint from Oriental before in the 1 oz bottles. I loved that paint and was running low, so I decided to get the larger bottles to stock up and to make special family shirts for Christmas. This time, however, did not go well. The new paint was very lumpy, but I could deal with that. Unfortunately, after our projects were all done, the new paint washed off after one inside-out gentle wash! The old paint we used on the shirts worked great while the new paint came right off. The kids (and parents) were very disappointed.

Not worth it
We purchased these for our Sunday School Christmas party and these were horrible. The students had to squeeze very hard to get the paint out and some of the colors were very thick so they didn't look nice. About 4-5 of the bottles had the point pop off, causing paint to go all over the place. The bottles that didn't pop off, we eventually cut the tips and they worked a little better. I recommend getting the glitter paint, they worked much better.

Worst Fabric Paint
I bought this paint for my daughter's 10th birthday party to decorate tote bags. I thought that the paints would be great for the girls to write their names on the bags. Boy was I wrong! Every tube of the paint was so thick that the only way it would come out of the tip was with great force. And most of the tops of the paints came out of the tube when the tube was sqeezed, creating an awful blob of paint instead of a nice line. The girls ended up having to use paint brushes to apply this paint, which made their final product look more like a preschooler's and not a fifth grader's. I was very dissapointed with this product.

Some Colors Better Than Others
I used this on the natural canvas totes to write names. Some of the colors came out of the tube and went on easily, looked great, etc - The Blue and The Black we clumpy and looked horrible.
There is a TON of paint in these - I wrote first names on 25 bags and barely made a dent in these
I am going to use them again for my daughter's bday loot bags. Just wont use the colors that were clumpy
Note: LEAVE at least 24 hours to dry - I did the names in the morning for an afternoon party and some of the paint was still wet - AGH!

Good quality paint
Also used this for gift bags when one child did not like the bright neon colors. They are not as exciting as the neon colors, but they are good quality and will be used again and again for other projects. It was easy to write and decorate with them.

I purchased these paints for a project and they worked out perfect... It's a good deal for the money! When i run out i will probably buy another set.
