Review of Kwik Stix #KwikStix

Kwik Stix The Pencil Grip, Inc. Review

My daughter is a DIY queen! She is so creative, artistic, and is always searching out do it yourself projects to complete. Lately, she has been using the Kwik Stix 12 pk from The Pencil Grip, Inc. to create her projects and I am loving the no mess kids art supplies!

Kwik Stix are available in several different sizes and styles. They are an amazing solid tempera paint stick that really does dry in 90 seconds! We even found that depending on the surface, the drying time can be even quick than 90 seconds.

Sarah said the stick had the feel of a typical glue stick and the paint texture reminded her of lipstick. She painted this egg which had a wood surface. The drying time is right on and we tested it out (see video). On the finished project, the colors were vibrant as well.

She also used the paint sticks to add color to some fun task sticks she made out of plain wooden craft sticks.

Sarah and I also make a Scripture Art Journal weekly so I wanted to give them a try too. I used them for my verse on normal sketch pad paper. 

As you can see below, when I've used markers in the past, they actually bled through the paper.The Kwik Stix had no bleeding through at all! I also colored over the colors to test out how they would work. I thought the top color showed up beautifully even when it was a lighter color than the bottom color. There was also no mixing of colors on the paint stick! It remained clean and in tact.

Using Kwik Stix
If you are sick of unwashed paint brushes or paint splattered in your sink when the brushes are washed you must give these a try!  No smocks, no water, not even paint brushes are needed to make great masterpieces.  They are simply amazing!  They also come in metalix and neon colors for even more fun.  You can use them on a variety of surfaces including wood, canvas, paper, poster paper, and cardboard. 

Here's another fun project put together by The Pencil Grip, Inc using white paper and white Mylar inflated balloons - perfect for Mother's Day!

The Pencil Grip, Inc. also sent us one of their Pencil Grips to try out. We received the original pencil grip and Sarah loves using it. She said it makes writing much more comfortable instead of feeling like you are writing with a piece of wood. Their pencil grip is rated #1 by teachers, doctors, and occupational therapists.  It is a great fit for adults and children and it does not matter if they are left handed or right handed.  Invented in 1992, the pencil grip continues to be a #1 best seller on Amazon.
