Q: How long can I keep face paint on my face? Are there any harmful effects?
A: Face paint manufacturers don't recommend keepinging face paint on fo rmore than a few hours - half a day or so at most. Face paint is water based, so it will come off with sweat and time, although using Barrier Spray before application and Final Seal on top of it will help it last longer.

Q: Some of my face paints stain the skin for up to 3 days and I wounder if there's a primer or something that can be put on the skin first to prevent this. Parents sometimes have family pictures or events planned later in the week and are unhappy if they can't wash the paint off.
A: Face Paints are water based and should come off easily with soap and water so there is not a primer that is made for face paints.  However, if you use a cleansing cream like Noxema or Ponds for the darker, stubborn colors that will help completely clean the face.
