Where can I purchase face paints?
The Face Paint Shop offfers a full line of TAG Face and Body paint. Visit their site for more info: FacePaintShop.com (Members of the North Florida Facepainters Guild receive discounts on their orders.)


What are some good hygiene tips for  face painting?
Make sure you use clean, fresh water while face painting.  Clean your brushes and sponges thoroughly after every event. Do not allow wet sponges to remain closed up in your kit or a bag, as this will allow the growth of mold.
Is there anyone I should not paint?
Do not paint anyone with a fever, cut or open wound (like chicken pox). Suggestions to avoid these problems: To avoid painting around a runny nose, healed wound or acne, paint their arm or leg instead. For a child with fever or obvious open wounds, offer them a sticker instead.


What type of glitter should I use?
Only use polyester glitter or glitter gel made for cosmetic use. Avoid craft glitter as it is can be made from aluminum or contain pigments which are not skin safe.
