To Face Paint For Childrens Birthday Parties
Learning how to face paint for childrens birthday parties is far less
difficult than writing a check to a professional face painting
artist. Now, don’t get me wrong. Professional face
painters possess unbelievable talents. I could look at their work
all day long and wonder how they can create such beautiful, such
precise images on a face.
If you can paint by numbers, you can learn how to face paint darling
cheek art designs for your childrens birthday parties. Cheek art
face painting is simply painting small, fairly uncomplicated designs
that will excite a three, four, five, six or seven year old.
Here are seven keys to learning how to face paint for childrens
1. Use the proper paints. It is imperative to
select and use only FDA-compliant, water-based, face paints.
Acrylic, tempera, oil or craft paints are not specifically made for use
on the skin and therefore, can cause skin sensitivity or even allergic
2. If you’ve never face painted before, select only
7-10 different face painting designs to offer the children.
Practice those designs first on paper, then on skin until you are
comfortable. If you don’t have a willing subject, use your hand,
arm or leg to practice on.
3. Set up your face painting work area so you have
everything you need at an arm’s reach. Protect your table with a
festive tablecloth. Have at least two cups or bowls of clean
water to rinse your brushes out. Have a mirror on hand to show
the children their masterpiece. Paint the designs that you will offer
on poster board and post near your table so the children can choose
4. If the party has a theme such as Pirates or Princesses,
be sure to learn a few designs that correlate with the party theme.
5. Have a great and cheerful attitude. Be
patient. If the children are young, they may be fidgety or
nervous. Speak quietly to them and stay calm as you are painting.
6. Don’t paint on skin that has rashes or
abrasions. If you find a child whose face has a condition, offer
to paint on their arm instead.
7. Have Fun. After all, this is face
painting! Children are extremely forgiving. They will love
the attention and they love the face painting design that you paint.
