Safety Info

Every product I use is FDA compliant and are professional facepainting products, water based and safe.  The glitters I use are all cosmetic grade and safe to use near the eyes.

• All professional face paints used have anti-bacterial properties and are specifically for use on the face and skin. Face paints are easily removed with face cloth and mild soap & water.

• Some colors (usually green and blue) may leave a light tint on the skin lasting a day or so.  Baby shampoo, makeup remover or baby oil are all good at removing any residual staining/tinting of the skin.  The natural oils in your skin will push any remaining paint out of your pores within a day and the stain will be gone.

• Face paint is a sun block, you may get a tan line where the paint has been if outside on a hot sunny day

• Face painters should not paint anyone who does not want to be painted.

• Children generally enjoy having their faces painted and experience has shown that it is more relaxing and enjoyable for them in a safe environment.

• Children should be well supervised (by a responsible adult) and not left unattended while they are waiting, to avoid disruption.

• Children (and their actions) remain the responsibility of their parents or party organizers at all times.

• For sanitary reasons, I will not paint anyone who is or appears to be sick or suffering from cold sores, conjunctivitis, ringworm, sunburn, eczema, any infectious skin condition or open wounds.

GLITTER TATTOOS

Glitter Tattoos are created using medical grade adhesive and super fine cosmetic glitter.  Each design will last 3-7 days, assuming no lotions are applied and the design is not scratched.  Glitter Tattoos will wear off over time, but can also be easily removed by soaking it with rubbing alcohol or alcohol based lotion and then rubbing off with a cloth.  Glitter tattoos should not be applied to the face or to anyone with sensitive skin.

PAINT REMOVAL TIPS

The best way to remove face paint with the least amount of staining (and squirming!) is to take a mild face soap or baby shampoo and apply it directly to the painted area WITHOUT water first.  Mush the soap into the paint until it looks like a giant mess, then wipe the paint away with a wet wash cloth.  (I suggest using a cloth you don’t mind getting stained ,as the paint lasts much longer on fabric than faces!).  This will clear away most of the paint with leaving very minimal staining, if any at all.  Then wash the face normally with soap and water to get any remaining product off.  Be careful to wipe paint of gently around the eyes, and not to scrub the face too hard.  For detailed instructions please see the Paint Removal tab above.

A QUICK WORD ABOUT ACRYLIC PAINTS

It is very important to understand that while craft paints like Acrylic, Tempra, or Watercolor paints are Non-Toxic and safe for use BY children, that does not mean that they are safe to put ON children.  Even craft store brands of liquid “Face Paints” are not professional grade and are not properly tested to be safe on the skin.  The picture below is a great example of what happened when two sisters found their moms craft store liquid paints, which WERE marked as “face paint” and got creative.  After an hour or two the paints began to irritate the girl and the result was a rash all over her face.  Please be aware of this when you are out and about and see anyone using craft paints on children.
