Thin Stix Creativity Pack Review


Having reviewed Kwik Stix and Thin Stix in the past, we were excited to be chosen to review the Thin Stix Creativity Pack from The Pencil Grip, Inc. We love these paint sticks because they dry quickly and are easy to clean up.

The thin stix creativity packs comes with twenty four different colors to choose from. There are twelve assorted colors, six metalix colors, and six neon colors. They range from dark green to bright orange and everything in between.

IMG_20171104_110809_thumbI wanted to try something different this time and I saw these 5X7 canvases at the store. I used one to create a keepsake from my six year old daughter. I drew her hand on a piece of paper and cut it out. Then, I traced it onto the canvas with a pencil. After I copied it with pencil, I traced it with the black thin stix to outline the turkey. I used the metalix colors for the “feathers” and used the brown and red for the other part of the turkey. I added the year to it and used the gold metalix color on the outside for a frame.

The paints dry quickly, so we didn’t have to let one part  dry for hours before working on another part. Although, it did take a little more time to dry on the canvas than it does on paper, we were still able to finish our projects in under thirty minutes (which included drawing, painting, and drying).

It is so easy to use colors on top of colors without having to wait a long time for them to dry since the thin stix dry quickly.

We also used the thin stix on paper and drew some things to check out all of the colors.

I’m thinking of buying more little canvases to use to draw Christmas scenes onto. It would make a cute gift for a grandparent. Another idea is to buy a bigger canvas that you could write a Bible verse or quote onto and draw a little picture to go with it. The thin stix are thin enough that you can use them to write with, but they are also great for coloring in a drawing too.

There are so many ways to use the thin stix and the creativity pack gives you so many colors to choose from. These stix will always be number one in our house for creating, drawing, and making gifts.

You could even buy these kids art supplies for the artist in your family to give to them as a Christmas present.
