Face Painting Magazine

(For the Face & Body Art World)

My favorite Face Painting Magazine has to be the online e-zine called: BRUSH STROKES MAGAZINE. On this page I plan to feature all the main Face and Body art publications. These magazines feature the work of fabulous artists as well as keeping you up-to-date with news from the face and body art world, reviews, and step-by steps. Some are available by subscription online and others are posted via traditional "snail mail".
