I got these for a party of 60. When I opened them they were so coagulated that they barely came out. At the last minute I had to use sharpies instead.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChubbyGirl504 The kids loved these.
They were easy to use. The kids didn't need to fight for the same color because this kit came with three markers of each color. Great purchase!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tkatz Not very user friendly
I bought these so my kids and I could craft and they really haven't worked very well for any of us.

I purchased these for our children to use in Sunday School to do projects for our church's shut-ins. They were AWFUL. Most of them we weren't even able to use. There were no clear instructions on how to open them (luckily, one of the kids had used them before and was able to show me.) Many of the pens were dried out, or the liquid and paint had separated so that the paint was this giant play-doh like ooze and the clearish liquid would just come out of the pen. Total waste of money. If I could rate them half a star, I would.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buggin Great find
My kids loved the pens much more than the paintbrushes. The pens with solid color lids were more runny and translucent in the window. The colors with the white tip lids were very thick and if applied to heavy, you couldn't see through the sun catcher. Make sure you have a good ventilated area. The fumes are very strong.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by connie24sue The pens were messy for children under 10. It seemed like the paint was coming out too fast. I thought it was going to be more like a magic marker.
I was surprised at how much ink came out of the hole of the pen. It became messy, especially when painting in very small crevices. Older youth/teens did better than those who were let's say 10 and under. Each pen is individually wrapped and you also have to take a cap off before use. This took lots of time, especially doing the whole kit to prepare ahead of time and there were times that I squeezed the pen and got the paint on me. The paint is not easy to wash off. Took a little scrubbing with hot soapy water.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NatureCenterTeacher2 absolutely horrible
I have purchased these pens in the past and they were just fine. This time, the paint was totally gummy -- we couldn't use them at all -- it didn't come out of the tubes. We had over 100 children at an event at our Nature Center -- and the suncatchers and paints were nearly a fiasco. Luckily, I had some pens left over from last year and we eked the paint out. Terribly disappointed.

I purchased for my daughters art party with suncatchers and other items. There was no paint in the containers! Only white liquid, the paint had turned to glue! ;( Not happy with my purchase at all. And the sun catcher/windchimes broke apart. The chimes didn't even stay connected. I wish I would have known before the party started.

Okay, I read the reviews which said a few tubes were unusable. I figured I was getting 72 so if 3-4 ended up in the trash no biggie. After painfully unwrapping and uncorking 72 hermetically sealed packages only 38 were usable! To Oriental Trading's credit they took them back and said I could get a refund, but what a waste of time and money. And then I was left scrambling 3 days before my kid's birthday party for other suncatcher paint.

Along with suncatchers these pens were easy to use and safe for my grand babies. We painted quite a few pieces with very little mess. The only thing, we ran out is reds and greens very quickly. Should have extra main colors. But, great for kids to handle.
