I think this should answer any lingering questions!

Link to Snazaroo's safety information-
http://www.snazaroo.us/safety.htm

Taken from Snazaroo's facts page, which addresses repotting issues-
(http://www.snazaroo.us/faqbreak.htm
Quote taken from that page, "Never transfer SNAZAROO paints into another container that isn't FDA compliant for cosmetics ... SNAZAROO as well as the other more popular brands can react with other non-approved containers. Always avoid any plastic that contains styrene. Also avoid any metal or wood product containers.

I know this is an old (yet extremely helpful thread!) but I was hoping someone might be able to answer me - I have some snaz that I'd like to get a bit more use out of. I'd like to make some split cakes and rainbows. You know how they come in a tiny clear plastic tray (the 18 ml anyway) and then that tiny clear tray is inside the tell-tale snaz blue container? If I remove the clear plastic tray, will snaz eat through its own blue plastic container? Do I need to keep the clear plastic in there?

Thanks!

Yes, it does eat at the blue containers and eventually will make them brittle and they will eventually start breaking off pieces. Some colors seem to eat the plastic faster than others.

Thanks Eva. I guess I'm stuck, would love to repot, but don't want to risk breakage.

I really do like Snazaroo's classic red for Spidey faces. TAG red is very nice in color too, but Snaz probably washes off more easily.

Thank you so much. I had only tried snazaroo and diamond fx from a small pallette but it looks more like a bright red orange instead of a red. I'll just order a snaz. Thanks again :0)

In my opinion the best brands are DFX and Wolfe. They have amazing bold colors that show up very nice and the consistency is easy to work with. (I tried Kryola and their paints are rock hard. I have to pretty much destroy my nice brushes to get the paint on). I have chosen DFX over Wolfe because it turns out to be cheaper per gram. I buy them at jestpaint.com. I also make my own cakes. I would avoid DFX red, though. I use Tag red and Paradise blood red which are awesome and I add those to my cakes as well.

Try GlobalFX red. I was sold on TAG's red, until I used Global's. It has better coverage, washes off easier. Going to stock up on their standard colors and make myself some cakes, as I got a couple of their FunStrokes and LOVE them. Bright colors, no staining. Sold! Smile

I am in desperate need of a good opaque yellow. I have mostly Tag and DFX which I love. I found their yellow to be very dry and to not have great coverage. I have purchased a few Global colors and LOVE their red and magenta. I was curious to see if anyone has any insight on different types of yellow and which you all prefer. Thank you.

all i have at the moment is snazaroo light yellow, which i created by mixing the regular yellow with a little snazaroo white.

the large area is several coats with a flat brush, the details are one coat with a fine round brush -

Thank you for posting the comparisons. Is "DFX" Diamond FX? We are just starting out and my partner in crime prefers that over TAG, which we've used mostly.

Yes. DFX is short for Diamond FX.
