Product Review: Disney Paint Stamps & Stencil Kit

I recently purchased a Disney Paint Stamps & Stencil Kit at Home Depot to use while painting my daughter’s room. The kit I bought is a Tinkerbelle kit, however there are several varieties available including Winnie the Pooh, Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear, and Mickey Mouse. The Tinkerbelle kit includes 2 paint stamps, one flower and one butterfly, and also a stencil that looks like pixie dust.

I chose this kit because the price was right and also it appears very easy to use. The finished room photos look so amazing and the instructions were simple, so I gave it a shot! After painting the entire room, I waited for the walls to dry completely, then I started with the stamps. The kit included the stamps but no instructions on how to properly use them. This concerned me since I had never used painting stamps before. I applied paint to the stamps and checked to make sure there was not an excess of paint in any area of the stamp. I then placed the stamp in the desired location on the wall. I gently pressed on the stamp to make sure that the image was successfully painted onto the wall.

After removing the stamp, I noticed the image did not fully transfer, and the paint was running. I immediately caught the dripping stream of paint running down my freshly painted wall. At first I chalked this up to me being new to stamps and tried it again. Only to still have trouble getting the image to transfer even remotely close to what it should look like according to the package. However, one I had started, I had no choice but to finish continue on to finish the job. Once the stamps were all completed, the finished product looks decent. However, in my opinion, it looks nothing like the example photo included to show the finished stamp.

The stencil was a totally different story. The kit did include directions on the proper use of the stencil. I followed the package instructions word for word. The end result was beautiful and my little girl loves it! It was so simple, she was even able to help me with painting the stencil. My only wish is that another stencil had been included in the package, or a longer stencil. It was a bit frustrating to move the stencil every few minutes. Of course they do sell additional stencils, I just had not purchased additional stencils since I was not sure how it would look on the walls yet.

If I wanted to purchase another Disney Paint Stamps & Stencil Kit, I would not buy it. I would only buy the stencils and forget all about the stamps!
