Playground friendly paint

Post by FUNtasy on Sun Jan 20, 2013 6:18 pm

Last weekend I was hired to do a face painting job, however the owner of the playground does not allow me to do it because the paint was water base and the paint might came off if the kids robe their faces against the inflatable games or any other area in the playground (I am using Snazaroo).
The owner told me that they used to have a face painter that used a brand that does not come off easily even if the kids are sweating.

Can some one with more experience recommend me face painting brand that can be playground friendly?

Thank you in advance for any help! Smile

I am not an expert and do not pretend to be either, as far as i know all face paint is water based, for the exception maybe of star blends which is powder.
i have a bad feeling and hope i am totally wrong, was the other face painter using Acrylic paint? which is NEVER suppose to be used on skin.
I am very curious to know what other face painter with a lot of more experience say.

It was probably airbrush designs they wanted. I got the same thing from an inflatable company here...

I thought the same Paola! I don't really have any idea about what kind of paint she was using even the owner of the place was not able to tell me what brand she was using but since I don't really have much experience with other brands or techniques I thought it might be other paint.

And same like you Paola I will be very interested if the airbrush technique is water base and will work just fine for kids?

Erica is right, there is airbrush paint which removes with alcohol or soap, like EBA's Endura: http://www.europeanbodyart.com/airbrush-tattoo-paint/
They're essentially water proof, so they're often used for temporary tattoos.

Also, Graftobian is highly water resistant, and can be used on faces.

I was just reading that! They last up to 7 days. Can really somebody like to paint their kids with alchol base paint and remove it with such methods? Not sure i see it suitable for kids faces? Am i wrong?

Can you use airbrush paint as brush/sponge-on paint? This sounds like a question for Shannon.

i found this product in Silly Farm too and this is what i read:

*Silly Farm does not recommend using alcohol based paints on the face of youths. Always consult with your customers prior to using alcohol based paints for full body art.

To use and remove: Shake your bottle of EBA paints vigorously to get the pigment moving. Pour directly into your airbrush or bottle and blast cap and spray. Remove Inks with baby oil or alcohol.

You're, right, EBA Endura is an example of a water proof paint but in contrast, graftobian is a hybrid paint that is often used on faces and is water resistant like Erica was alluding to.

Almost all water based airbrush makeup doesn't come off the same as the traditional stuff. It is very easy to remove with soap and water but won't rub off on bounce houses. When it does come off from too much sweat and rubbing it is like a temporary tattoo and crumbles off. I love it for hot sweaty events and find it stays on very well as long as they don't touch their face. I don't like the hybrid or alcohol based for faces personally. Although, I had a bounce house operator that doesn't allow face paints in his equipment and saw my traditional stuff and said I did it differently than 'his guy' and it didn't come off as fast in the house. I do pretty thin application and that makes a difference, also, Kryolan stays on very well once dry.

How about taking him some testimonials. I am a past inflatable company owner, I am a face painter, airbusher and have reped most the top brands of face and body paint makeups. And would assure someone Snazaroo is not going to stain their equipment. But yes it will on occasional require washing, as face paint can run off on the vinyl, but not so much as to notice, as much as any sticky little hand may disperse grime, but he cleans them regular anyway.. right....

Now I am sure the lady that was painting before in the play ground was NOT using airbrush so I have being reading about products and I found this:

"Star Blend is fade resistant, perspiration resistant and non-streaking" so I am guessing this brand will be the way to go for indoor play grounds

To be honest until today I have just used Snazaroo but with this experience I think that I will star open the doors to other brands. maybe in the future I will try air brush but for now I just will keep using my sponge and brushes.

Thank you guys for all your comments!
