View Full Version : Powder Paints

Can anyone tell me where they get their powder paint from? I've been looking on the internet, and some tubs come in 200g, 500g or 2kg.

How much do you realisticly use when making up pots? Don't want to buy the 200g tubs if it's not really going to last long, but don't want to but the massive ones if that's way too much, as it works out quite a lot of money buying a few colours.

I'm lazy and use ready mixed from whoever is the cheapest at the time... usually Woolies! :D

Im the same but I get mine from ELC as I found the bigger ready mixxes dried up really quickly so ELC are smaller tubs and are only £1 each.

Have looked for the powder paint but no-where local seemed to sell it and didnt want to buy the huge tubs online.

Mostly use ready mixed paint too. But if you paint water on some paper and then sprinkle powder paint on top you can get some quite good affects.

When I worked at the school a few years ago a little boy had to get the green powder paint

He fell - the lid came off and being powder it went every where

The little boys white shirt was green - his hands - his face - shoes - my shoes it seemed to go everywhere

He started to cry untill he saw me laughing then we both could not stop

He looked like a mini version of the Incredible Hulk haha

So I would always use ready miixed paint now - imagine that all over your house ha

Does the ELC ready mix paint come out of clothes and off hands easily?
I brought some crayola stuff that says washable on it but my daughter used it and I couldnt get it off her hands for day, it stained them. I dont want to start using that for the minded kids, their parents wont be best pleased, Im sure!

I also use ready mixed try tesco, Asda or Wilkos if you have one

I use ELC - which when my daughter does her hand/foot prints it comes off so easy. Its really reasonable as well i think.
