Face painting is a great way to for you kids to express what they would like to be – especially when it comes to animal faces – most of the boys usually goes for the lion faces, to show they are the head of the pack and the leader – It gives them that confidence to be on top when showing off his face painted like a lion or a tiger – and you could keep you children busy for quit some time painting their precious faces.
You don’t have to be an artist to do face painting – it is a very easy hobby to learn – all you need is a good guide to teach you the basics and make sure to use proper paint – rather buy more expensive paint that will last longer as well than struggling to get those little faces clean. It is just like purchasing cheap make up – you face gets spots and the make up sits on your face like you glued it their.
Always test the paint on a small area of skin before painting to see if the child is having an allergic reaction to the paint – and make sure you wipe their faces first – just to clean off the excess oils and that the face is nice and dry.
Start with the broader brusher for the base cover the whole face when doing the base of the design and then you can use the thinner brusher for the actual design.
Start with easy designs first and then work your way up – always remember to give at least 15-20 min per child at a birthday party – so practice quit a lot before attempting to book your first party
Good luck and have fun painting!!
