Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jcustomer Awful. Paints were opaque so not suncatchers
Paints dried opaque not transparent. Have used many other brands and they all dry transparent (stained glass effect). These were not SUNcatchers. I had to run out and buy tubs of other paints.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ActivityDirGirl Great Idea, additional supplies needed
Got this for a craft hour with a senior group. Things we learned: The kit does not come with the suction cups to hang them on the window, and the paint does not spread well from the tubes. Best to use the tubes to squirt the paint and then spread it with paintbrushes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1067FRG Great for all ages, but requires some prep-time.
We always buy crafts from oriental trading, for our military events, because of the cost, quantities, and quality. We had 90+ kids attending the picnic, and this was a great addition to our other kids' activities. Just a heads up though, you need time to get this ready. Each "pen" is individually wrapped. Then, you have to unscrew each cap, unscrew each nozzle, remove a little plug, then place nozzle and cap back on. So there was more prep work than anticipated -- and when you order multiple sets, you need to set some time aside to do this. Kids did this craft on their own, but they needed supervision, as a few younger ones proceeded to squeeze mountains of goo on their sun-catchers, wasting the pens.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AshM Nice craft activity for kids
Nice activity for kids 8 and up. The younger the kids are the more supervision you will need though.
The paint amount is more than enough. Vibrant colors. But it is a bit clumpy and pastey. The smell of the paint wasn't too bad.
The kids enjoyed it. Good product.

2 dozen markers and 2 dozen sun catchers- I expected 1 dozen markers and three dozen sun catchers, based on the illustration. This experience taught me to read deeper!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CubmasterLisa Completely useless!
This product was unusable. The paint was completely dried up. It left us with no craft for our Cub Scout Blue & Gold banquet. Very disappointed . . .

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by genfoley8 Way too messy
These are really cute but the paint pens were a disaster. They took forever to open and they were so easy to squirt the kids made a huge mess and the paint did not wash off easily. If you could do this project in a one-on-one environment it might work but it was not worth the mess for us.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Briixain Lacks instructions and smell warning
The 'paint' was hard to open, then some leaked at the neck. There were no instructions so I had to use common sense and practice. The kit does not come with paint brushes, yes you need many brushes as it is NOT washable. Kits in the retails stores do have brushes. When you use the pen paint applicator you have to use a light hand and if you squeeze to much out you have to spend time using the tip of the applicator like a brush to move it around so it dries correctly.
Once completed you can achieve some decent results but not without hovering over your little crafters.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kmportraits paint was a disaster
I was not expecting the paint to smell so toxic, and it did NOT come off clothes OR HANDS! there were no warnings that I could find that you needed to wear gloves or use extra ventilation.
The paint was also pretty thick and hard to get a small enough among onto the sun catcher.
I would not recommend it.
