Love the shimmer! Good for all skin tones!

The colors are superb! When the sun shines on the skin with these colors, it has a beautiful shimmer! This would be great for anything needing some shiny effects such as butterflies and mermaid designs. I think it blends well. Looks great on both darker and lighter skin tones.

Love this paint! Love the color combo! Love the DOME!

Vivid color combo, and love the Dome!

What my kit has been missing!

So glad I got this when it was in stock!!!

A favorite

This is a shimmery purple combo that kids LOVE!

Me encantaron

Llegaron muy rápido y son muy buena calidad, estoy feliz.

Precisely what I needed

I keep a fairly small kit but really like to have a good number of solid colors available. Because I already have a few Fusion palettes that I’ve used up and saved I was able to fill the empty containers and give myself a nicely sized selection of my solids. This fits perfectly in my kit and gives me the color range I want on hand.
The box is sturdy, opens and closes correctly, my saved containers fit perfectly.

Bright and smooth!

They smell good and the pink is really bright and easy to work with

My GO TO White.

This is basically the only white I keep in my kit if I can help it. Definitely the best on the market.

Wonderful color palette!!

Absolutely love these colors together

4th of July Staple

Opaque and smoooooth! The ombre effect makes for nice dimension.


The consistency of this glitter is amazing. A little goes a long way.

Favorite Rainbow

I love this rainbow. It’s my favorite primary bright rainbow, very much the classic all occasion type. As with any split cake, artist caption is needed when loading to avoid muddying, but the cold in this cake help make that a little easier.

Love these Kraze Round Brushes

First off, I absolutely love Kraze products! This set of round brushes does not disappoint. They hold their shape after many many uses and are just all around Amazing brushes!

Must have split cake!!!

This is one of my favorite split cakes. I like to make my sunset design with it. The colors is vibrant and the paint is smooth with a great application. TAG is always reliable.

💯 buy again

My son was the Incredible Hulk for a 5K superhero race for a little boy battling cancer we painted him at 5:00 a.m. that morning and he ran the marathon and it looked like he just got painted it withheld sweat water this paint was amazing and went on flawless highly recommend this paint. The first pictures are Before the Race and the last one is after the race this paint was phenomenal

Kraze FX Dome Splitcakes

I am thrilled with these split cakes! They are creamy, vibrant, and gorgeous!

Perfect to practice left side

The texture and quality of the board is perfect for both practice and event display.

I love Sparkling Faces Painting Boards

The texture and quality of the board is perfect for both practice and event display.
I created a design of cherry blossom for a Japanese Festival using the arm practicing board.
The reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the back of the board gets stained with paint and is very hard to remove it. Would be wonderful if the back would be black and with the same texture as the front.

Love superstar shimmers

Gorgeous with the extra shimmer and so easy to blend.

Love this color!

Beautiful color,, blends like a dream.

Beautiful shimmer color

Love to mix with regular white for muzzles, I also dip the inner corner of my loaded petal sponge with it to get more of an airbrushed look for my butterflies.

for stencils

I don’t use this for my line work, but it is great for stencils. I discovered after many mistakes that there’s different types of whites and this one is best for sponging and stenciling.

A great base to any painters kit

I've gotten Kraze split pallets in the past, I find them excellent. I wanted this one as it's compact and I really like a compact kit. I love that you can replace cakes & they're affordable per cake. Great tidy pallet

Smooth and perfect!

I loved this brush for dolfin. I did not try any other design with it. It was the perfect size. Very comfortable to hold as well.

Mehron mixing liquid

I live in the humid hot Midwest, so I use mixing liquid to help designs stay on better throughout the day.
