Face Painting For Beginners
Are you a new face painter asking, “What do I need to start face painting?” The basic things you need are some paint, applicators (brushes & sponges), clean water and a willing face to paint. Its usually easiest to start with a face paint kit, which will include several colors in smaller sizes, allowing you to learn to paint without breaking the budget. Many of our kits include a book of basic face paint designs, brushes and a sponge, and these accessories are also available separately. We even have kits that include just a few colors and teach you how to make a single face, making them ideal for theme parties!
One place to start is our Face Paint Guide

How Do I Apply & Remove Snazaroo Face Paint?
Snazaroo Face Paints are water activated, they are meant to be mixed with water. When using a sponge or brush, add a small amount of water to the sponge or brush and mix it onto the Snazaroo face paint cake. Practice to learn how much water Snazaroo Paints need - too little and you'll see skin through the paint, too much and it may look streaky or bubbly. When using a sponge, apply Snazaroo like shoe polish until you have color coverage and then pat the sponge on the face for a nice even coat.
You will find variations in consistency between Snazaroo colors due to the different pigments used, so some colors (like green and orange) will need more water than white or black. That is normal.
For sensitive skin, Snazaroo suggests a twenty minute patch test before painting on the full face or body. For a patch test, properly apply Snazaroo paints to a one by two inch patch on the inside of the elbow. After twenty minutes, remove the paint with water only and wipe dry. Look for anything that might be of concern. Snazaroo is hypoallergenic and when used properly it is highly unlikely there will be any concern.
Snazaroo products wash off with mild soap and water. For best results, remove with a high quality baby wipe or baby shampoo, water and a wash cloth. Avoid using low cost baby wipes as these can be irritating to young children's skin.
To remove Snazaroo makeup from clothing, wash by hand in cold water using soap or pre-washing agent. Do not try to remove the makeup from clothing in a washing machine. Avoid warm or hot water when trying to remove the paint from clothing. Avoid using near sensitive fabrics like silk that absorb pigments.
