Wolfe Black face paint, from the Wolfe Essentials line, is without a doubt one of the best face paints on the market. Wolfe face paints are densely pigmented making it easy to achieve brilliant color and opaque coverage. Unique to the face paint world, Wolfe FX Hydrocolor Makeup has a wax base that allows paint to flex with movement instead of cracking, so your designs stay put for longer. Once applied, Wolfe Hydrocolor makeup will not smear under normal circumstances, remaining bright, colorful and comfortable to wear.

Wolfe face paint is preferred by many face painters because it produces excellent quality line work that goes on opaque, even when layered over other colors. The deep pigmentation of the face paint makes it easy to get a lot out of a small amount of paint, which is ideal for high volume face painting.
To use, thin Wolfe face paint by adding a drop of water from your brush and working the water into the paint thoroughly until it reaches the desired consistency. You may have to experiment to find the best consistency suited for your use. If the paint appears to become goopy over time, this just means it has absorbed some excess moisture. To fix this, add a little more water to thin out the paint, or remove excess moisture by placing it in a dehydrator for a while.
Generally, it is best to add water to Wolfe face paint in a separate container (rather than spraying the entire cake) so you can control the amount of moisture you introduce to the face paint.
Shelf Life: Once opened - 12 months. Stored dry and unopened - 3 years.
