Both products use totally natural ingredients, removing any concerns about accidental poisoning. For example, the Eco-Glue contains rice flour, water, sugar, citric acid, corn starch, potassium sorbate and rosemary oil; while the paints get their colour from ingredients like carrots, spinach, red grapeseed, purple sweet potato and gardenias.
Every product is made by hand and part of a family-owned business.
The paint is quite concentrated, so you get a lot once you mix it with water (1:1, powder to water). We tend to make smaller batches because it thickens a bit over time.
The glue works really well, and dries clear.
The paint hues are pretty muted. You won’t get vibrant reds, blues or yellows with Eco-Kids’ all-natural paints. As they dry, they get more and more toned down so you’re left with an almost pastel look. However, this doesn’t bother my kids and I’m happy to let go of colour saturation if it means my kids can lick their fingers after they’re done painting. Not that they do, but I think you know what I mean.
4/5 for both
