Thin Stix Review & Giveaway #hsreviews #MessFreeCreativity #ThinStix







The Pencil Grip, Inc
Alaina is a very crafty kid, she loves to make cards, draw, color, craft, and she is always wanting to try new arts and crafts things. Her newest art supply is the Thin Stix 6 pk of Classic Colors from The Pencil Grip, Inc. 
Thin Stix by KwikStix
The Pencil Grip, Inc. is not a new company for us as we already own several boxes of the regular Kwik Stix. Alaina was so excited to get the Thin Stix because sometimes you need to make a finer line. We have had our Thin Stix for several weeks and Alaina has drawn and painted pictures, made cards, and even painted on mylar balloons. 

Thin Stix are actually solid tempera paint inside a plastic housing that looks like a marker. The paint is non-toxic and can be used on paper, posters, card stock, mylar balloons, wood, and canvas. The Thin Stix has a smaller tip than the original Kwik Stix so that you have better control over your artwork. And the best part about these art supplies is that they are completely mess free. You do not need any water to use this tempera paint and it dries in 90 seconds.  
The first thing Alaina did when she received her Thin Stix was to draw a palette so she could see all the colors, the 6 pack comes with yellow, brown, green, blue, red, and black. Every evening I read out loud to my family. My kids usually draw, or work on a craft of some kind. Several times Alaina wanted to paint, but I really didn't want her painting in the living room so the answer was always no until we started using the solid tempera paint sticks so now she can paint in the living room anytime. 

Alaina was so thrilled with the new Thin Stix because she could make things she had trouble creating with the Kwik Stix. She wanted to see if she could make a smaller eye & she was glad it worked.



The Thin Stix is thinner and taller than the Kwik Stix. Alaina doesn't just like them because they have a smaller tip, but she also thinks they are easier to use and fit her hand better.




Alaina wanted to try painting on a mylar balloon so she decided to make a birthday balloon for a lady at church. Her sister made some yummy chocolate peanut butter cupcakes and Alaina made the balloon. The paint sticks went on the balloon very smoothly. She messed up on one part and she used a paper towel and a little Windex to wipe the mistake off immediately after applying it. The funny part about the balloon was that I was cleaning our church building so Alaina easily packed up all of her boxes of paint sticks and balloon to paint while I cleaned. Kim happened to stop by the church while we were there and Alaina had to hurry and hide the balloon. Later when we dropped off her goodies she said she didn't notice exactly what Alaina was doing.

The Pencil Grip, Inc. offers the Thin Stix and the Kwik Stix in different size packs in classic colors, neons, and metalix colors. We received the 6 classic colors in the Thin Stix to review and we already had the Kwik Stix in the classic colors, metalix, and neon. Alaina loves having so many colors to choose from and they all create bright beautiful artwork.
