Super Sun-Tastic Suncatcher Paint Set
Wonderful colors, easy cleanup.
I bought this paint to make suncatchers to hange in trees for a party. I am very pleased with the way all of the colors brought out conversation with parents at this party and the children even made comments on how pretty they were. I was pleased i had decided to go with these suncatchers and paints for the party. I told my family and friends about Oriental Trading, several are planning to order paints and other products for their parties.

Received Dried Up Paint
I ordered the paint and the suncatchers. While the suncatchers were fine, the paint I received was dried up--some bottles were solid blocks of hard paint. Unfortunately, I did not open the paint bottles ahead of time. I opened them as we were about to do the project with 18 kids during class. About half the bottles were not completely dry. There was some paint at the bottom that was chunky but more liquid-like. I put all the bottles into a bowl of very hot water in an attempt to "melt" the paint to liquid again. That didn't work too well. So we used what we could salvage from the "chunky" paints. The end result was so-so. I'm sure if the paint were in a liquid state, the project would have been great. But with the paint we received, it left a lot to be desired.

Perhaps the suncatcher paint set should only be sold when the sun is shining. It is winter, and they came from a warehouse in NE to our cold school far away. They appeared frozen, so were useless :(.

Would recommend with one caution...
... needs 12 hours to dry! Which is no good for party purposes so if you're buying for that, know this upfront. It was not on the website at time of purchase, but customer service was more than understanding about it and sent a free returns label and credited us asap. We found this fact on the To Use instructions after they arrived and it was printed on the side of each bottle. Anyway, couldn't rate higher either considering right now. Might give a shot in the future now that I know better.

Does not store well
If you purchase this product, be sure to use it within a couple of months. I stored many dollars worth of this product over the winter while my campground was out of the camping season and tried to use it again and the paint has turned to foam! Not impressed.

Best price for the amount of paint you get and it works well
There is plenty of paint for numerous projects.

Good paint set.
Overall a good purchase. Paint did have a strong odor and was hard to wash off of fingers but worked well for the suncatchers we were making.

A little disappointed.
I bought this product to do suncatcher ornimants for christmas. I was a little disappointed with the overall product.
It was really thick, one of them was half empty and when I went to open them a few had leaked out around the seal. I have never had any problems with things I have ordered before. But I guess in the many years I have ordered.... this was a first. It happens to the best of us.

I used these sun catcher paints to do stained art with 1-4 graders. All of the paints I could find which were actually made for stained glass took more time to dry than I could afford in my craft class. The sun catcher paints were a good alternative and worked well for this project.
