Children’s liquid Watercolour School Paint – Is it a dye or a paint?
Is it a dye or a paint?
|Sargent Art “Watercolor Magic”|
The good news is schools looking to use either dyes or watercolours in the classroom can do all the art projects you find online for both the school painting dyes and school watercolours. They are both the same kind of product. An educational dye.

Dyes have no pigment in the formulation and technically real watercolour paint does. Real pigmented paint is brilliant for mixing colours together but dyes tend to get dirtier the more you mix two colours together. Dye tends to blend together rather than mix together to produce a bright new colour. They do mix but not as well.
These School Watercolour Paints and the School dyes are effectively the very same thing. Just branded differently.
Schools looking to use in the classroom either a school dye or a school watercolour paint for art projects can do all tradional school dye projects or the school watercolour paint projects you find online.
But If you want to mix colours and traditional way without getting stained hands, then look for Tempera (temporary) Paints. Like FAS Super Tempera or try the new FAS Super Dye that allows up to 90% of the dye to wash-off hands instantly with water.
