|2011 is a milestone year for Faber-Castell USA as we celebrate the 250th Anniversary of Faber-Castell and 35 years of Creativity for Kids!|
Do you like to paint? I am not very good at it but I have always enjoyed it and still do. I'm the type of person to get right into finger painting along with the kids who cares about messes as long as were having fun! They can always be cleaned up. I was very excited to have been given the opportunity to review Faber-Castell's set of 12 washable tempera paints and a paint pad.
Young artists will love experimenting with the rich colors included in our non-toxic Tempera Paints. Endless color mixing possibilities!
The Paint containers looked at bit small at first but it didn't affect our amount of painting at all. I just put small amounts of each color into a palette and we went to town! We have painted a dozen times and still have paint left! Using the palette is needed with a toddler In my opinion because they don't remember to clean the brushes before using a new color usually by the time were done painting every color is brown ha ha. I was very pleased at how well the paint washed off I have used other brand name kids paints and they never come off like they are supposed to but these went above and beyond my expectations. They paint really well to nice and thick and go one smooth with bright vivid colors. We have had such a blast painting We paint a few times a week or more. My son is at school most the day so this is one activity I love to use to keep my 3 year old busy. Plus she makes beautiful artwork to put in daddy's care packages.
|Very serious painter!|
|yes I painted this hehehe|
