This post contains affiliate links. Really, this is the last time I am repotting my paints for a looong time. My last set-up change was not as wonderful as I thought it would be. After reading about somebody else’s latest set-up idea, I decided to copy them. These are jewelry display cases and trays that I ordered […]
My eldest son has been interested in face painting for quite some time, but only recently has my next oldest expressed any interest. I let him paint from his brother’s kit the other day, but decided that they each need their own. Using storage containers I already had, I set out on this time-consuming task. […]
Here’s a simple neon crown for little girls. Use a square brush and split cake to make it whichever colors they prefer. Save
The basic concept of this design is so simple. Just load up a square brush on a split cake and swirl it around the eyes as shown. Poof on some cosmetic glitter while it’s still wet, then add stars and dots with white paint. You can really pep up the design if you have more […]
Some kids really go for zebra stripes. So why not give them a funky zebra-arm-name-thingy? Use whatever split cake they prefer underneath. Save
The girls really love this design. Use different colored metallic split cakes to really make the flower stand out. Save
Perfect for any 70’s event, or just for the lovey-dovey people out there! Save
I painted at a birthday party with a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theme. So I thought it would be cool to come up with an Oompa Loompa design. Not too difficult at all. Save
This shark can be made very easily from a gray and white split cake. Try it! Save
I painted this lizard design on myself from a Wolfe brothers book. It took me a long time, but that’ s because I don’t trust myself and I’m kind of a perfectionist. I wouldn’t recommend this design for long lines! Save
I really like how this Jack-o’-Lantern turned out. It’s good for fall without being too scary.
Here’s a fairly simple gecko that will please the boys. The body shape can change depending on how the gecko is moving, so it’s a lot more forgiving of painting inconsistencies.
I believe a fellow face painter came up with this design. It’s a cute one for little girls. Instead of my face, imagine a cute little 3-year-old under all that paint. Adorable. Save
This is supposed to look like a bicycle ran over his face. Some people make tire tracks that look like a car did the running over. Use a square brush to make the tread marks. Boys love this look!
Here’s a simple butterfly mask I used with a jewel rainbow cake. I love the colors! Young girls, or girls with dark skin look better with butterflies that have white lines. Save
This was the first Batman mask I ever did. I’ve since discovered that you do not want to cover the child’s face with yellow paint. It has a nasty tendency to tinge the skin yellow for a day or two. Save
This is probably the quickest butterfly design that I do. It’s good for toddlers. Just load a large square brush on a split cake and you can easily achieve each wing with one stroke. Outline in white and you’re done! Save
Boys, girls and even teenagers love having silly facial hair painted on themselves. Why, I don’t know. I just know it’s a fact. Have fun experimenting with different mustaches, goatees, full beard, and crazy eyebrows! Save
I believe this mask design is also from Mama Clown. It’s very popular with the boys who alternately call it a monster or a dinosaur. Save
This was probably my very most popular design. I called it a fairy mask, but some girls will think it’s a princess, mermaid, etc. The awesome thing about it is that it can be simplified if your line is long. The colors underneath are achieved with the Ben Nye Grande Lumiere palette. The original design […]
