Fancy Fabric Paint Set
Normally, I utilize a name brand fabric paint; however, I wanted to try Oriental Trader's in-house brand due to the price.
While the cost was almost 45% less, the product does not possess the same qualities. It is neither as vivid, smoth in its application and the containers were defective. To utilize the product, one must squeeze the bottle of fabric paint. Unfortunately, two (2) of the tips came off and ruined the project that we were working on. The red tip came off in an explosive manner and fabric paint went everywhere (not an exageration), which resulted in a shirt and a pair of shorts being ruined.
I have been working with fabric paint for several years and have not had a similar situation at any point. I experienced this on 2 of the 7 bottles that we used.
A savings is only a savings if the product is comparable, which this was not. We needed to use more than twice the paint to obtain the same result as with the name brand fabric paint.
Avoid this product.

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.
