Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lisakell too thick to use
I purchased two sets to use for an Easter Sunday craft at our church. When I opened them they were as thick as glue. I was unable to use any of them. they would not shake. I tried putting some water in but that made more of a mess. I had to throw them all away. I was extremely disappointed.

Paint is thicker than others i have purchased. It can be thinned with clear isopropyl alcohol. Its inexpensive and can be purchased at any drug store. Make sure to mix well. The thinner the paint the more transparent. Panit can be mixed to create different colors. It will take awhile to dry

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OccupationalTherapist Pros and Cons about even
Vibrant colors (no brown)
Doesn't run, you could put a few dollops of different colors on a paper plate palette to work from.
Kids like using these paints and making suncatchers.
Not water soluble. Be careful.
Gloppy, really hard to spread evenly.
You can't see through the bottle so you don't know how much paint is left and how far down to dip your brush.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Flomyeb2 Too Thick, hard to get off Child's hands
I have bought suncatcher paints sets before, this one is too thick and does not come off a child's hands with regular hand washing. It would not come off a plastic tablecloth and also stains clothes. Normally I can get the paint out with prewash. Not worth the trouble...

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 :(.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AJR20 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RecManager 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.
