Compare Tulip glitter Tats & Paint

Post by Winger1200 on Wed Aug 10, 2011 2:14 am

Since I taught painting at Michaels, I tried out the Tulip glitter tats that were in the classroom.

Tulip glitter is ultra fine with a bit of sparkle as compared to the sparkling Professional www.SignatureGlitter.com in the brighter colors with larger cosmetic grade glitter. The Tulip glitter comes in a set with small stencils or two pack and I guess they would do in a pinch if you need a certain color. They would be great to try out using glitter tats, then order professional grade online.


Well, I was desperate for white paint and while waiting for my order to arrive, I stopped by Michaels to try out Tulip paint.

The Tulip white paint glided on just fine, almost as bright a white as DFX. For around $3.50 a cake with a coupon, it will do in a pinch in desperate times. I will try it out in a split cake for One Stroke florals next. I would only use Tulip white for now and as soon as my order arrives, will only use the professional paints I trust.

Here is a review of Tulip black; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgnW-KzxMfA

When the Tulip paints first came to Michaels I told our manager that four of the Tulip colors can stain for days. The glitter tats are the only Tulip Face & Body Art my store will demo, not the paints at all. It was nice to see a Snaz kit in the classroom, hoping that it will be demoed by one of the employees.

Happy Painting,
Susan

The comparison between Tulip, DFX and Snazaroo white paints was full of surprises!
Tulip was almost as bright as DFX and worked up much easier. Snaz is bright but leaves ruts in the strokes like the Tulip in these photos, so that's why I've been using DFX for my linework.

Video review of the black & white http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgnW-KzxMfA

What a shocker when I went to cut the Tulip cake to make a roses split cake! There is hardly any paint there! Advertised as 18g, I assumed judging from the size of the cake it had the same amount as Snaz, 18ml - NOT so! http://www.ilovetocreate.com/ProductDetails.aspx?name=Tulip%C2%AE_Body_Art%E2%84%A2_Face_and_Body_Paint
It was like handling plastic or latex as I pried it out of the cake - looks like it too. I added a bit to see if I could get it level with the DFX red.

Too layers of the Tulip didn't get it quite level with the DFX red ; (

In comparison I put a slice of the red in the tulip cake to show how little paint is in there and both are new cakes.

Tulip roses on the left and DFX is on the right. IMHO, the DFX looks nicer. The reason the tulip rose bud is bright is because I just started the new split cake, by the second rose it looked almost as good as DFX. A lot of Tulip was used as compared to DFX which is why the light shines off the first rose. Snaz uses the smallest amount of paint per design which is why it is so economical. I used light & Dark DFX greens for the foliage.

Much to my dismay, this is what the big Tulip rose looked like 30 minutes later, a faded pinkish blob ; P

Like I said below, Tulip white paint is good in a pinch while waiting for your professional paint order to arrive. It goes on well and comes off just as easily. For the small amount of paint in the cakes, USE coupons only to purchase them because they are overpriced at $3.50!

Happy Painting,
Susan

I love this thread!

I've been wanting to try Kryolan. I can't decide if I just want to order a few of the interferenz or go for the palette.

Thank you so much, Susan for all of that Tulip information!
I had my suspicions so it's nice to have proof.
Thank you!!!

I bought a bit of the glitter and was not impressed. After it's on a short while it seems to have no lustre and the stencils are really only good once, if lucky twice. They are just not worth the convenience, which is too bad.

I will say the glitter glue holds quite well though, so it's a nice pick up in a pinch.

Thankyou, glad to share the review because I really like to read all the other reviews before I buy <3
I did the glitter design freehand and used the Tulip glue like I do my professional glue, a very light coat except for the first two lines on the left which were the only ones that remained looking like this photo after a shower & one day. So if you need to buy the Tulip glitter, really lay on a thick layer of glue.
The sparkling lasts 3-7 days, two weeks on my dry skin Smile

Here are the pictures i made for myself. I might as well share it with you guys. Note that Superstar is from the same manufacturer as the Fab paints.

And also the PartyXPlosion is said to be the same as DFX (which i doubt but okay). K means Kryolan

P.s.: don't look at the mess behind! I'm restyling furniture ;-)

I was going to buy that pinkish purple wine color and the neon pink. I'm hoping they restock soon. I'm leaving for Disney World in less then a week and don't have another gig until the last weekend in September. I might just buy the palettes they come in so I can try out the other colors, too!

I really need info on the Interferenze Opal.....does anyone have any swatches? or comments on that????

KottonCandyKlown: I've just ordered a schwack of Kryolan, should have it in a week or two. I'll do swatches of my own and post I guess. I had to buy SOMETHING right away...so I just did it. Didnt bother with those peasly little aquacolor palletes. I went for the 2.5oz build your own from sillyfarm. When I priced it out...it was pretty fair. got the little extra colors in .14oz to try out like the verti gold, lime green, uv violet etc. ...I look at them as sample sizes. hoping they look amazing!

I'm sorry but as far as it goes for ALL brands that sell .14 oz sizes or close to it.....YOU SUCK! they DONT go a long way....and the colors fall out of the container! ...ok thats my rant for the day . LOL

Who is the best to buy face paint products from? I am leaning heavily towards the DFX paints and sponges, etc.

i'm looking for a good blue, the Paradise blue isn't doing it for me a nice bright dark blue, the powder blue I have is okay but kids want a dark blue and it fades to a greyish blue after it's been on for a bit..any suggestions.
I also want a new white the Paradise white tends to grey or absorb the color under it.

Thank you pinkundies! I placed an order with SF this week and they just happen to stock Wolfe neon pink so I snatched one Smile I just got it so I haven't had time to use it.

Of course, they sold out of Wolfe white the day before I went to place my order! Ugg! I've seen some FABAtv people use Paradise white, but I knew most people on here hate it. Very confusing! scratch It's probably a promotional thing Wink

I'm always looking for a good blue. I also have issues with blues turning grayish. TAG has a blue that turns a grayish periwinkle. The kids call it purple. Suspect

I've seen the people on FABA TV also using Paradise white, but they are using it as a base and blending, but using Wolfe for thier linework. I love, love, love FABA TV, by the way!!! My next white will be Wolfe. I have DFX, TAG and Paradise, but I really want to try Wolfe, because no matter what some say about DFX and TAG being the same, most people say that Wolfe is so much better.

Wolfe white was the first one I bought, works just fine but I had nothing to compare it to. Recently bought a tag pearl white, and find it to be quite sheer, I don't like it for line work AT ALL!!! BUT it makes a great background or base, and I've heard others talk about mixing it with other colors to make them shimmery or not so harsh. I had Wolfe Black and while it covers great, I found it got very chunky in extremely hot humid outside fair days here in MI, maybe it's the way I load my brush wherever it lands and it creates little 'roads' everywhere?? I've been noticing lately lots of people have little 'wells' where it looks like they must always stick their brush in the same little spot to load. Any pro tips on this would be great....anyway, I also found Wolfe black tended to be hard to wash off and so I tried Paradise Black, so far I'm quite happy with that (Smile). I JUST got my first DFX paint today, white, so I'm excited to give that a go and see how I like it for linework etc, seems to be the go to for many. As far as colors, I've bought a few TAG pearls recently, purple, teal, red, and I REALLY am liking TAG. It seems to go on really smooth and vibrant, prices seem a little better, and best of all, it looks like they are coming out with new 50g RECTANGLE containers now, which eventually it would be great to have a kit full of RECTANGLE containers that fit together neatly and nicely, are easy to swipe a sponge or brush across. Kinda makes you wonder why round is the go to shape for cakes all this time? Thanks everyone for all the great pics and advice.
