Tulip Paints

Post by bemusedart on Sat Mar 24, 2012 5:13 pm

Before I ordered my DFX paints, I picked up a handful of Tulips with my coupons for Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I practiced a bit with them before attempting to paint anyone else with them. Three of the colors I got (yellow, teal and purple) all stained badly and took about 2-3 days to get off completely. The white and silver did not stain, so they went in my kit. I had my first gig since getting these last night.
I hate them.
I didn't get a chance to use the silver. But I did a 2 hour gig doing about 45 faces. Probably 1/3 were cat faces and and I did about 4 zombies which also used a lot of white. But I used up that white. Didn't even make a noticeable dent in the blue DFX split cake I made, even though the majority of the cat faces were blue panthers. And the Tulip is about the same price as the 32gm DFX, which is the size of DFX I have. It also didn't blend near as nicely as the snazaroo white that I used in the past.
And as for the silver - it is way too translucent for me. I think I can see using it on adults for that sheer mask base, but that is about it.

Sorry you wasted your money. Think someone had said much the same thing about the Tulip paints on another thread.

I am making use of the colors that stain to practice designs on my arm, where I am ore concerned with getting shapes down than worrying about color combinations. But not on my daughter. And they don't work for practicing on wax paper or my laminated sheet either since they bead up.

Most of the colors are useless, but I love the silver, I bought a couple extra because they are discountinued at my local stores.

I am learning to like the silver for teardrops and line work, but it is very sheer for sponging. Maybe I am not getting enough on the sponge.

It may just depend on what you are use to. My first silver was snaz, and close to useless. It was only good for blending with other colors. I found the tulip silver to be very good with coverage, but you never know from lot to lot how new paints can change.

Try less water and REALLY load your sponge. I have some of the Tulip silver and don't have a coverage problem with it.

I've not tried it, just heard it was bad. The stuff in my Michael's looked so awful I never bought it. The dyes are all separated from the paints. It's hard to believe it comes from the same factory as DFX, Wolfe & TAG. I guess it just goes to show a real face paint company wouldn't stand for a junky product while a craft company will...

I posted in another thread that I had gotten the silver with a coupon. Even with the coupon, felt like it was a bad purchase after seeing how little paint is actually in it. The silver isn't bad to use and doesn't stain like everyone says the other colors do (except the black and white apparently). Just for my money won't buy again.
