Face Painting is So Much FUN!

October 22, 2013 by Administrator

I have been face painting for community events and private parties for about 7 years now and I really enjoy it. I have found that the kids just love becoming various charactors and seeing themselves in a new way.

Here are some tips I have learned:

1. Always bring a mirror – but place the mirror so that the kids can only see your work once it is complete.

2. Bring a sheet or book of your designs.  You can find ideas for designs on the Internet or in books.  Practice them and make them your own.

3. Give the child a chance to choose their design but if the child cannot choose suggest a design to go with the clothes that they are wearing.

4. Censor your design choices to include only designs appropriate for the event.  This is most important for church events.

5. You may need to hold a child’s at the top of the head or the chin to steady them while you paint.  Ask the the child before you do and tell them why.

6. If you can get a helper to watch over the line of children and assist the children as they choose a design, this will be very helpful.

7.  Talk to the children about their design choice and customize colors when you can.

8. Most importantly – have fun!
