What Moms Should Know About Face Painting
6. It washes off.
At the end of the day, all makeup removes easily with soap and water. Warm water is best to open up the pores. Sometimes, face paint washes off before the end of the day. Like at a pool party, for example. These are things for the planner to consider. ;)
5. It rubs off.
Is your party held indoors with tons of white furniture or white carpets? Those kids will find a way…
4. What to do if your child has an allergic reaction.
Terminate exposure immediately by removing as much of the paint ASAP with JUST water. That’s the “official” advice.
3. The difference between craft paint and makeup.
If the paint in use is coming from tubes that you’ve seen at the craft store, feel prompted to ask what kind of paint the artist is using. The most commonly misused craft paints that I’ve seen are acrylic and tempera. These products do not belong on anyone’s face! Neither do Sharpie markers.
2. The risks of using craft paint or craft glitter on your child’s face.
Craft paints can cause allergic reactions, rashes, or even swelling. Craft glitter can irritate the skin, itch, and if in the eyes can scratch the cornea.
1. Why good face painters charge.
In my area, the going rate for a face painter is between $75-$150 per hour. Keep in mind, this is the East Coast. Why do these artists charge so much? Chances are, they are small business owners. Thereby making them full time bosses, and maybe even full-time mommies too.
