Ever stumble across an art supply that was made for kids but you just had to try it? That’s what happened to me. Loved these paint sticks when I found them, used them a few times, and then forgot all about them.
The embarrassing thing is they were actually on a shelf where I saw them every day but didn’t really see them. But thanks to this month’s Let’s Play theme, I am redeeming myself and using these with some much older rubber stamps!
New to Let’s Play? It’s all about how to let go and embrace the fun of artful play. Each Tuesday, there’s a new link party where I’m sharing my play and you can link up to share your play. And yes, it can be any creative play! Plus there’s a monthly $50 gift certificate giveaway!
These are a kids supply…and they make me happy. Why? Because of the creamy texture and that when they dry they are dry and don’t smudge or smear easily. Now, if you hit them with a bunch of water they do smear since it is tempera paint…

Now you’ve seen my play…can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
