Tempura paint?

Post by Miss Ronnie on Tue Oct 09, 2012 11:56 pm

So this Mom sitting behind me at my restaurant gig tonight tells me how she'd love to have all my paints. Naturally that sparked a conversation. She tells me how she makes her own face paints with tempura paint and lotion.

Post away...

Tempera paint. It uses albumin or powdered yolk mixed with pigments. Think: ancient paintings and little kids poster paint.

Tempura is yummy, deep-fried Japanese veggies and seafood.

oops on the spelling. I knew what tempera paint is... but what do you think about this woman mixing it with lotion and calling it face paint?

Meh, it's probably not crazy harmful, but it's certainly not going to provide the same results that we do using the products we use. The pigments in kid-safe tempera aren't going to be inedible (unlike the pigments in craft paint or artist's acrylics) and the base that it's in isn't likely to be harmful, either. I know the blue stains, though, since there's a group of people at my alma mater who painted themselves blue every year to resemble Picts. They also resembled drowning victims for the next few days after.

Tempera paint is still classed as a craft paint and unless it's formulate for kids to paint using their faces as the brush, I don't think the company intended it to used on little faces. The fact that she mixes it with lotion just solidifies my perception that that concoction is hot mess in full effect!

The woman is silly!! I made my kids homemade face paint a few years ago (we googled recipes) we came up with one that we had the ingredients for, it included cold cream face lotion, corn starch, and food coloring....it went on nicely like paint and dried relatively quickly...but my kids informed me that the paint completely cracked and flaked off of them all day and was ITCHY....but their skin was well moisturized lol.

Why would she add lotion to paint?? It doesn't make it less toxic, maybe it's enough to make her think it's ok....not even all lotions are safe to put on your face! People are so cray cray!

Yeah... I told her it was probably fine to use on her own kids since she already has and they've apparently had no reactions; but she told me she does it at her kids' school!!
I wanted to call the Face Paint Police Department (led by Detectives Shannon Fennell and Perry Noia) on her but I didn't want to seem too obvious by asking her which school. No

I did my first festival 2 weekends ago and it was a Grape festival. There was a lady with acrylics in the parking lot painting grapes on people and I had multiple people come up to me and ask if I was the one in the parking lot the day before and I said No...they said, oh...cuz they messed up my face!!! I couldn't believe the people that had a rash in the perfect shape of a bunch of grapes! Shocked

Ronnie, got some background on this for you. Surprisingly enough, 30 years ago in the clowning community (there wasn't an actual fp community) tempera paint was mixed with the pink baby lotion to use for face painting. This was used by what were considered pros at the time, by most community groups like the Jaycees and churches. Now also people did cheek art then, seldom near mouth or eyes and mostly on arms. The knowledge and products simply were not available at the time....remember there was a time it was COOL to smoke. In the information age it is unforgivable to use such products. Google folks...google...if you are interested enough to apply a brush to a face find out what is available and how to use it. Smile sunny

Thanks, Sandy! That's interesting info. I think you should be on the Face Paint Police Department, too.

Okay, Tina, i have tried in the past to take only a sentence or two from someone's post as a quote and have not succeeded... how do you do it?

I'm always dismayed when I read things like this, but also a bit bemused. I'm anything but perfect, and I don't think I'm unusually intelligent or sensible (hah! on the sensible Laughing )...but when I first decided to paint Cian's face, it never even occurred to me to use anything but actual, safe, professional face paints.

I hope those people with the grape-shaped rashes manage to find the woman who harmed them, because that's exactly what she's done - caused bodily harm!

Sigh. It's not even like safe face paint isn't readily available. From what I've read on here, Snazaroo is sold at craft stores over there. It's like people just don't care...

You are absolutely correct!! My husband ordered my paint for me when he decided I could paint cakes, so I must be able to paint faces, and volunteered me for a church block party/carnival thingy. He went online and somehow ended up with a snazaroo palette....and I guarantee he didn't spend hours and hours researching paint options....and even he knew you can't just run to walmart and get craft paint!
