Please tell me why anyone would seek to misinform the masses with this nonsense?

Holy Crap...Acrylic paint. and then food coloring on the face.....you have got to be kidding. That just shows that we can't believe everything that we read.

How do you tell these guys that this isn't safe?

Well... if you have to join to comment, that stops lots of people. And, they are probably moderated so the owner can choose not to allow the comments through (you can do that with blogs too).

I just commented. It shows up at the bottom of the article. It also sends all comments to the author of the article.

Can you imagine how dry and itchy that oatmeal/cornstarch mix is gonna get when applied all over the face?
Also, how many kids are gonna get bug bites and stings from all of the Karo syrup?

I actually arrived at a church function where they put me in a room with a bunch of washable markers and told me to use them. They did not want me to use my "real" face paint. (Never did find out why). I refused and left.

What the heck were they thinking? Do they seriously think that when Crayola says washable they mean that it's skin washable and therefore safe for use on the face!!! Seriously?? Did they say anything when you left? Serves them right to be left in the lurch, I wouldn't want anything to do with that nonsense!

I do not know what happened after I left. I believe a parent stepped in. I was not a member of the church. I kept the deposit. Very Happy

well, crayola markers would be safe... they will wash off skin just fine (my daughter has taken to colouring herself regularly) BUT no matter how good you are, it's gonna look like crap. And why?? I see no benefits whatsoever and it would be far less hygenic than using antibacterial/antimicrobial face paints.

I don't know that I would consider Crayola markers "safe" when the Crayola company has specified in writing that none of their products are designed skin-safe for use in face and body painting. Of course that was before they recently came out with a transfer type tattoo kit that is skin safe......but they still state that none of their other products are..

I can't believe they would hire a professional face painter, and then try to make her use Crayola markers. That totally floors me.

Well, that would fall under the "unsafe and adverse conditions" clause of my contract, so I think you did the right thing in leaving....I would if anyone insisted I use products not intended for skin. I value safety and my business too much to put them at risk by using such products. Could they have just been misinformed and not understand the safety concerns, or did they simply not care?

I'm not saying that I would have agreed to doing it... at the very least I would need to know why in the world they were asking such a thing in the first place, then inform them of why it's unwarranted. Besides which, it would make me look horrible professionally because the work would look just awful.

I was busking by the riverfront on fireworks night this summer and a kid came over with marker all over his face that looked just awful and he said his mother did it. She asked me to wash it all off and do something nice instead... they knew it looked bad but it was all she could think of to do for him since she didn't know there would be face painters there. I mean really, his face was green with red spots.

When I was in elementary school, on football game days the teachers would let the cheerleaders paint paw prints (our team logo, we were 'the bobcats') and team numbers on students' faces with makers and acrylic paint! x___x When I was little I didn't know where was anything wrong with it, but great googly moogly, teachers should have known better. You'd think so, anyway....
