3m is kinda small, I like the pfs it'd 20m nice size.

I just don't like the size of estes, maybe if it come in bigger size ill use it.

3m comes in more than one size. Even still, spraypainting sand just sounds strange, although it could probably be safe. I'd still rather have something that won't wear off.

I think Estes' is perfect, large enough to sink fast, keep just enough space between grains to let oxygen in to the whole sand bed, but still be sand. You may have gotten a small batch. I have noticed from time to time that a box will be smaller than usual. Hopefully that is all that was.
