Best to buy in the UK???

Post by lanya3 on Fri Mar 30, 2012 8:37 am

Never facepainted before and really not sure what the best brands to buy are, obviously since I'm new I don't want to spend megabucks yet cos the paints would be a bit wasted.

I'm in the UK don't have many shops for supplies, I'm not averse to ordering from the States etc. but I'd be blind buying and not able to test anything before hand, anyone got any good recomendations please?

Snazaroo maybe? They're based in the UK, and you can always get a smaller set to try before investing in more.

Have you looked at the UK forum? PM me and I can get you the address. I know that there are many UK resources for paints and the forum (run by a shop based there) is just chocked full of UK-ers.

Hi, I'm from the UK too and snazz is priced very well over here, the sparkle colours are great for bases so don't write them off yet, plus snazz is sold in hobby craft so you can go.and have a look. I use a mix of Tag, Diamond Fx and grimas in my kit, all if which are sensibly priced. If you PM me I can let you know where to find them over here. I'm alsoa member of the UK forum, I'm greedy and post on both! Hehe X

Thanks for all the replies. Had no idea Hobbycraft sold facepaints, I've been in so many times before for pencils and stuff, and never seen them. Defo gonna take a look next time I'm near.

I've just bought some Snazzeroo paints for now, should get them in a few days Very Happy

Snazaroo is great to start with especially for the price and availability. In my opinion they're are best for bases and the sparkle orange and sparkle yellow are great for tigers. All the sparkle colours make great split cakes using a sponge for application. You don't get the depth of colour if you make one strokes and using a brush but worth making some for practice as they are so well priced.The black and white really aren't that good for line work. Try buying Diamond FX.

I buy everything but snazaroo from here.

http://www.facepaint-uk.com/

They sell a wide range of products, the service is excellent and they are great for advice on all the products.

If you're looking for TAG, try this

http://www.fantasypaints4u.co.uk/tag-one-stroke-split-cakes-27-c.asp

I've used TAG one stroke and I really love them but I bought them from the Forum Shop as I was on hols in the States. I don't order from the States as a rule because of the cost of postage and the tax I'm charged here before I can take delivery.

I've also cut up Paradise paints and made my own split cakes. Paradise are a great consistency for one stroke.

Hope this helps.
