Paints for Warm Weather

Post by kingsmeadmama on Tue Feb 26, 2013 4:50 pm

I'm thinking ahead to summer when it gets hot (for us anyway) 35-40*C (95-112*F) and quite humid. I'm wondering what brands hold up best in those temperatures, and which are better to avoid.

Thank you Smile

Wolfe White and Wolfe Black both hold up fairly well in the heat.
TAG White was okay.

I placed my paint on top of those foldable, moldable freezer packs in the intense heat of the summer. One Strokes were kept in the cooler and swapped out every hour or two.

Happy Hot Painting!

That's great to know!

At this point, I don't see myself doing anything as big as the CNE, but my mom did ask if I could paint at a family gathering, and with my family, that would kind of be the same thing Wink LOL!

Everything looked like a sweaty mess in my experience, after awhile. I hear Starblends & Wolfe for line work is the way to go for crazy summer heat!

I got Starblends specifically because they're supposed to be good in the heat. In Tulsa, we get long stretches where it's 100F for days on end. Plus, it's good to have a few just to use on boys and very little kids.

Yup!

White & Red are what I use most.
Black is great for zombie eye pits.

Wow. Hairy chin AND you keep zombie eyes in your pits.

You poor girl.

If you ever need a (hairy-chested) friend, you know where I am. It must be harsh living with all these anatomical irregularities.

Just know that we love you anyway.

You're still our Fessy.

On the actual topic: I heard that FAB/Superstar is good in heat, though I haven't had a chance to truth-test this personally. I live in Scotland. We don't have sunlight here.

Dear Kammy:
Do you realize that I have roped you into hijacking a serious thread with our hairy, pasty-complected hi-jinks.

This was a very serious thread.

kingsmeadmama wanted to know about Pants for Warm Weather.
I try to wear flowy skirts and dresses for warm weather. I wear wackadoodle colors and wild colors for face panting.

I've heard that freezing your paints before a gig can also help a lot. And use ice water to dip your brushes! Smile

I live in Tonga (near Fiji) in the Pacific - and it gets quite hot and humid - starblends are pretty good but if its really really hot there's not much you can do really.....I try to paint arms as opposed to faces if they're really sweating...

Kammy, I live in the Great White North, and according to most of the world, it snows non -stop, there are wild wolves and polar bears everywhere, AND most of us live in igloos. I TOTALLY get the whole "no sun thing"

I don't know how Fesspenter manages skirts, because, well, it's just soooo freakin' cold and snowy here I can't even imagine wearing a flowing skirt.

Back to warm weather paints...

I wear electric socks.

They have a built-in perimeter alert for polar bears and wolves. Doesn't work on moose.

Also,
I live north of kingsmeadmama,
and Face Painting by Jessica lives even more north than both of us.
We dog-sledded out to FPbJ's for our last MiniJam.

Oh, yeah, Janna!
You live in a place that is just reckless with letters.
Sure,
they COULD have just spelled it
"SOO"
but, NOOOOOOO,
they had to put in all those extra letters because they had an excess of letters.

So there.
I bet you feel insulted, now.

Now you're just being silly. Moose don't exist. They're one of two things:

  • A cruel joke played by you Canucks to see how gullible us foreigners are. The Finnish are in on it too.
  • A mass hallucination brought on by too much maple syrup and poutine.

It sounds like the consensus is Mehron Starblends for bases (which is understandable because it is actual cake makeup), and Wolfe for line work. But which split cakes / one stroke paints do most folks prefer for hot humid weather?

Oh, and what manner of fish, foul, flora or fauna is "poutine", by the way?

Oh. My. Gosh.
Do not try poutine.
As an American...
The idea of fries with gravy and cheese curds on top all melty gooey stroke inducing plaque in your arteries I can feel my left arm tingling heart attack goodness.
There is NOTHING like it after a game of outdoor hockey ( um, which I joined to keep healthier in the winter).
Do not try poutine.
It is better to pet a polar bear.

Oh poor Kammy!
Moose exist.
I have unexpectedly inhaled the aroma of cooking moose entrails and burning moose hair.
