Wolfe New Formula?

Post by mpwifey on Mon Sep 16, 2013 10:22 am

Some are saying that Wolfe has recently changed their formula and it may be goopy. I love Wolfe for my line work and if it has changed and become goopy it won't be as good for that. Has anyone bought some lately. I am doing my restock and want to make sure that I am not getting something that will be useless to me. I have an event where I am doing 30 or so sugar skulls right before Halloween so I need to know. Very Happy

Dear mpwifey:
I noticed that Wolfe white and black became goopy gloppy blobby globs IN THE HEAT.
Wolfe still performs well at regular room temperature.
What has sent me on a search for a new brand is Wolfe's response to my query regarding the change.... Wolfe responded that the formula with the eye on it had NOT changed, in a badly misspelled letter. It had changed. It changed just before the eye was stamped on it. I did not like being lied to.
I have since been trying different white paints.

Darn! I really was hoping otherwise. Thanks for the info! I have the older version without the eye stamped on it and it's awesome.

i've just recently started using ben nye magicakes white and black. not so much the black, I still haven't run out of my wolfe. The white, I am well pleased with. it hasn't gone goopy on me during the last 2 festivals...humid, hot weather. it's a different texture and there is some learning curve to get it to the right consistency, but so far so good. I like it.

The Wolfe white is still okay to use, mostly. But no matter how dry the basecoat and how quickly and lightly the linework is done over it, the lines now become the color of the basecoat. No more crisp white lines over my blue swirl design. Still looks pretty. Wish it covered though.

Both white and black are different to handle, and not as slick and fun as in the past.

hi mpwifey, I don't know if you read this thread or not, but here is a discussion about the Wolf b/w from August that you might glean some more info from:

the wolfe is great in the cooler autumn months!!!

as soon as it gets warm though, it gets soft like snaz.

but i'm used to snaz, so it doesn't bother me much-just ANNOYING because i expect this from snaz but not from wolfe!

ahhhh...i was wondering why my white swirls and lines were so crisp and contrasting to the background color when i painted them, and then faded looking when i took photos after i was done.... like this:
