Face Painting

During festivals and celebrations, you may notice that there are a lot of people who paint their faces. Most have colorful designs, making them look like something else, from animals to cartoon characters. There are also those who put little amount of paint in their faces, adding a little glow like make-up. Little flowers and stars are decorated mostly on the faces of kids during school festivals.

If you are interested in face painting, here are some safety tips:

· Use only face paints. There are a lot of different paints available in the market, and yet not all of them can be used for the skin. The face has an extremely sensitive skin that reacts to toxic material. Face paints are non-toxic and are washable.

· Adding glitters. Make sure that the glitters you use are made of polyester. Make sure you buy glitter that is classified as “cosmetic size”.

· Do not use alcohol for cleaning your materials such as brush and sponge. Trace amounts of alcohol left in these materials are actually venues for bacteria to grow.

· Do not paint over irritated or open skin, this includes acne. The face paint you use may have some ingredients that would worsen the skin problem.

· Wash your hands. This promotes both health and cleanliness.

· Painting someone’s face will not be over in a few minutes, so make sure you and the person whose face you are painting are seated comfortably.

· Make sure your materials are handy. It is better if your materials are placed in a table beside you to reduce the need to stand and get the paint or item that you need. Furthermore, placing them neatly in a table lessens accidents.

Before starting the process of art painting, be certain that all your materials and design or pattern are ready.
