Wolfe White 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 white 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 white 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.

How To Apply Recommended: Always start with a clean dry face before face painting.
Step 1: Moisten applicator with a small amount of water. Rub the wet applicator on top of the face paint until a creamy consistency is created. It is better to have too little water than too much, as more water can be added.
Step 2: Apply face paint to the face with the applicator with consistent even strokes. Allow the base color to dry for at least 5 minutes before starting your line work.
To Remove from Skin: Wash with soap and water or baby wipes. Work into face painted area for 15 to 20 seconds to loosen face paint makeup from the skin. Some traces of color may remain for a short period after washing.
To Remove from Fabric: Avoid contact with fabric, carpet, and upholstery. In case of accidental contact, spot treat with baby shampoo, liquid dish soap or OxyClean-like product and help loosen the face paint makeup with a toothbrush. Do NOT add water until the soap had loosened the face paint makeup. Once the Wolfe makeup is thoroughly loosened, add a small amount of warm water. Blot or wet vacuum the area. Repeat this process as necessary.
To Store: FacePaint.com recommends you use the product within eighteen months once you have opened the container. Older face paint can start to dry out and be less effective. Store the face paint covered in a clean, dry, dust free area out of direct sun light.
