Face Painting

Do you like to get your face painted? It’s fun! The most important thing about getting painted is to make sure the artist knows exactly what you want. Be clear when asking for your design so you’re not disappointed with the results.

The next important thing about getting your face painted is to sit really still. The face painter can’t do a really good job if you’re wiggling and jiggling about.

When the face painter is done, make sure you say thank you!

Have you ever wanted to be a face painter? You can! There are some really great kits out there. My favorite is “Face Painting” by Klutz. The designs are clearly explained with fabulous photographs to show you step-by-step how to paint them.

The first secret to being a good face painter is to look at the shapes within the designs. Everything you want to draw can be broken down into basic geometric shapes: circles, ovals, squares, triangles, etc. The second secret to being a good face painter is to practice, practice, practice! Happy painting!

Do you have a picture of you with your face painted?  I'd love to see it!  Ask your grown up for permission then send it to me and I'll post it!
