A fun, clean, simple and very convenient way to paint, Little Brian Paint Sticks has fast become the latest must-have toy for any arts or crafts fan! And what’s more they can be used on all kinds of surfaces; like paper, card, canvas, wood and even glass!

Water soluble and child friendly, the Little Brian Paint Sticks contain solid colourful paint that you literally twist up and down, exactly like a glue stick! So, there’s no need for water (that always gets dirty!) or brushes (that you only have to clean afterwards!). Available in packs of either six or 12 different colours, these super silky paints give strong vibrant colours.

How do they dry?
There is no need for a washing line of paintings across the kitchen with Paint Sticks! The Paint Sticks are extremely versatile and dry within seconds too, so unlike traditional paint there’s less chance of getting paint on those sleeves! However, for those with advanced artistic ability, the Paint Sticks can also be used with water to produce wonderful ‘wash’ and blended effect artwork so they will take a little longer to dry.

Little Brian Paint Sticks (the barrel and the lid), are made from #5 polypropylene which is a recyclable plastic material.  The paint inside the stick however is not recyclable, so must be removed before recycling the Paint Stick itself.
