What You Will Need (Get started Face Painting)

  • Set of face paint (see our Face Paint Shop for a selection of different brands of paints and accessories) This can be a little bit overwhelming since there are tons of different suppliers. Some of the brands of professional face paint are reasonably priced and are much easier to use than the cheap acrylics. Stay away from the "craft paint" types of face paint and rather start out with a professional grade of face paint. Snazaroo for example offers a small startup palette at a reasonable price to get you going and you can order it online.

  • Set of soft paint brushes of various sizes. Again our online shop, or your local art supply store should be able to help in this regard.

  • Set of small throw away sponges and tissues and cotton wool. Ear buds and back of a match stick are also useful for making dots or fine lines.

  • A mist sprayer and glass of water for the water soluble face paints.

  • A comfortable chair for your model and one for yourself, plus a small table for your supplies

  • A mirror to enable your model to view their face once completed.

  • Bucket of clean water, soap and a towel, for washing of any excess paint.

  • Why not list yourself as an artist on our website: Face Painters Directory.
    Promote yourself, your face art, a website, your company or services, all with direct links that will send interested viewers and traffic to your contact info.

  • If you are based in the USA then also have a look at: Festival Network Online - Find craft shows, art festivals, and music festivals nationwide This is a site to find events in your area that may provide face painting opportunities. A basic listing is Free.
  • The Snazaroo website also has a page where face painters can submit their details. There is also a page where face painters can submit their work in competition.

Also if you have a face painting website it can help to get good images listed here, so as to get a link from one of the biggest free face painting sites, with a good Google page rank.

Free Face Painting Designs and Ideas

The most common designs that kids love are varied and follow whatever is popular at the movies and on TV at the time. The old classics are animals, fairies, super hero's, scary monsters, butterflies, bugs Etc. Kids colouring in books are a great resource for simple designs. Also the favorite story books are also good since it is a familiar design that the child feels safe with, especially for young children. Some kids just don't like being painted at all and kind of feel like you are invading their space. Don't force these kids but rather see if they would like a small pattern or temporary tattoo on their hands or arms.
