The Pencil Grip, Inc. Kwik Stix Thin Stix Creativity Pack Review

My family had the privilege of trying the Thin Stix Creativity Pack from The Pencil Grip, Inc. for this review to use in conjunction with our own homeschool curriculum. This is a Homeschool Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.

Kwik Stix are from The Pencil Grip, Inc. They are solid tempera paint sticks that can be used without paint smocks, water, brushes, and drop cloths. These are simple to use, are mess free, and have no smell. You use them how you would a glue stick and they are about the same size too. Just uncap, twist up, and paint with it. Once you are done using that particular color twist down and recap. They are fast drying and the paint dries in about 90 seconds. The paint's texture and consistency is a cross between lipstick, oil pastels, and crayons. These work great on paper, poster board, cardboard, wood, canvas, and more! These are egg, peanut, & gluten free. These are AP Certified non-toxic and safe for little artists.

Kwik Stix Color Chart

The Thin Stix are a wonderful product from The Pencil Grip, Inc.! These come in a pack of 24 paint sticks: 12 Classic, 6 Metalix, and 6 Neons. These come in a rainbow of assorted classic colors including: white, yellow, orange, red, pink, light green, dark green, blue, indigo/dark blue, violet, brown, and black; metalix colors including: magenta, emerald green, sapphire blue, royal purple, gold and silver; neon colors including: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. The colors are bright, bold, vibrant, and vivid. The Metalix colors shimmer in the light and the Neons are a lot like highlighter colors. They are longer and thinner than the original Kwik Stix, for more control and finer detail.

Top and Right: Metalix, Bottom: Neons. Notice how the Metalix shimmer in sunlight.

How We Used This and Our Thoughts:
We received our first boxes of Kwik Stix 12pk of Classic Colors, Kwik Stix Neons 6 pk, and Kwik Stix Metalix 6 pk not too long ago. Now we have the Thin Stix 24pk of colors too. These are longer and thinner than the original so you get more precision with every stroke. Even though they are thinner they still have a blunt end. Like the originals the paint dries quickly for no mess kids art and there is little color bleeding into the next. Just don't leave the cap off too long or the Kwik Stix will dry out.

Teela and Zari's Artwork with the 24 pack.

These are also easy for little hands to operate. My daughters, Teela (9 years old) and Zari (7 years old), love them! They made some fun art with them and enjoyed using them too. I absolutely love that there is not any cleanup required! These are a wonderful addition to our kids' art supplies! I would highly recommend The Pencil Grip, Inc. Kwik Stix Thin Stix Creativity Pack for art projects, homeschool, extracurricular art, or just for fun!
