Several artists have done reviews of the Craft-n-Go, but after a year of use, here’s my take on what I consider an excellent product and great piece of equipment which has made my job as a face painter easier.
The only thing I didn’t mention in the video is the weight of the Craft-n-Go when it is filled. Face paint is surprisingly heavy, and once my kit is loaded, it weighs about 32 pounds. That’s fairly heavy if you’re lifting a Craft-n-Go, but it’s not bad for rolling it along. Still, for longer distances or over rough ground, I do strap it on a luggage carrier, which has larger wheels, just to make it easier to transport.
I hope this review is helpful, and if you’ve purchased a Craft-n-Go portable paint station, please share your own experiences in the comments.
