Having a bday party for my kids in 2 weeks (turning 3 and 6). I want to try doing face painting, but need advice on where I can go to buy good paint that is not too pricey, since this is just for fun. Please help, any advice is appreciated!
The .50¢ craft paints from walmart work great.
Why not make your own? 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon water, 1/2 teaspoon cold cream, and food coloring. In each cup mix the ingredients. Add a drop or two of food coloring a different color for each cup. Stir and paint to the delight of children and their friends. I don't remember where I found this recipe. I have not used it yet myself. Just thought it might be something to help.
Thanks, I actually found face paint in Michaels for about $22, a variety set that does 64-full faces, not bad. Much better and easier to use than Walmart's 'face paint'. I'm not an expert but the kids really enjoyed it.
