Q: Is the paint already on the image, waiting to magically appear when it gets wet? Or do you need to use the provided palette to transfer paint to the image?

  • A: Hi Marianne, The pictures need to be painted with the paint palette at the top of each page. You just wet the paintbrush, moisten the paint palette and fill in the pictures. Best, Your Friends at Melissa and Doug

Nowhere near enough paint. The color barely shows up. Frustrating for a child to use. This is not the quality we’ve known from Melissa & Doug products.

These did NOt work well at all! Too little water and can’t even see the paint… too much and the brush destroys the paper paint square. Not up to Melissa and Doug quality at all! Wish I would have stuck with regular paint with water book.

Terrible design that just frustrates my 4 year old. There's not enough paint to use and the thin paper crumbles and falls apart.

Pretty horrible. Paint doesn’t really work. I was surprised because Melissa and Doug is usually high quality

Hardly any paint comes off. I’d rather deal with a mess from regular paint.

My daughter loves these painting pages - even at age six. She has been using them since she was three. Parents love them because there is no mess! I have bought them over and over and am ordering more now.
