The Creative Process of Face Painting

There is something so creative and magical about face painting at kids’ parties! I love face painting so much and when I paint kids’ faces, I like to have them actively participate in the creation process.  Kids are amazing and totally imaginative and they come up with the best ideas!

My favorite part about face painting, however, is how the child, once transformed, really believes he or she is that character!

Face painting is not just limited to the face! Lots of kids (especially littler ones) can opt for a design on their hand or arm.

The possibilities are endless…from fancy tiaras, mermaids, colorful butterflies, rainbow princesses, or kitties/puppies for the girls to Spiderman, Batman, dinos, snakes, spiders, cars, etc for the boys. Plus anything else that the kids can dream up.

If you are a parent looking to hire a face painter, I recommend that you ask the face painter what type of paint they use. Professional face painters use top-of-the-line, high-quality face paints that are non-toxic (like Paradise, Wolfe, Snazaroo, Mehron). These are water-based paints that are applied with a brush.
