Kwik Stix tempera paint is unique because it allows the artist to enjoy painting without the hassle of the mess. I know messes can be fun for the artist, but sometimes this mama is not in the mood to clean up paint from the table, wash the many paintbrushes, and the palettes. Kwik Stix solid tempera paint comes in a tube similar to a glue stick. How cool is that? I wish that I had known about this product when the girls were a little younger although they both have enjoyed using the Kwik Stix to create a variety of art projects.
Because Kwik Stix is tempera paint it can be used on the same materials you would normally paint on such as paper, canvas, cardboard, and foam. The one thing that we all appreciated was the fact the paint truly does dry in 90 seconds. My youngest daughter takes such advertising seriously so she made it a point to verify that the paint really does dry in the amount of time which the company says it does. This was a wonderful perk because I didn’t have to wait for a long time for a piece to dry which made it possible to store when we were finished with art. With our other painting projects, I often would have to find a place to leave the work so that it could dry without getting wet paint everywhere.
Some of the projects the girls have enjoyed making with Kwik Stix include birthday cards and Mother's Day gifts. I am so pleased with the pieces the girls have made using Kwik Stix.
