What do you mean by 'not lasting long'? Do you mean the paint is flaking off? Or smudging/smearing off? Fading?

I've personally never encountered a problem like that with TAG. I've worn it myself for 8 hours straight and it still looked perfect by the end of the day.

Once a kid leaves your area, don't expect your work to come back without being messed up in some way. No

what I have found about paints is that if you have dry skin they are more apt to flake and bleed. I practice on my arm and noticed it disappeared in about 1 hour, the next day I put lotion on and went to paint again and actually went on much smoother and stayed a lot better without the flaking or fading...Just something I noticed.

Just smearing thought I may have been using too much water

In ideal conditions the paint will dry quickly and stay unsmudged, but if you're dealing with humid weather, sweating, eating, drinking... It's definitely going to mess up the paint job.
