Hi everyone, Mox here,
So I am Brand new to face Painting. I am not trained in painting either, learned everything through trail and error i guess. I just want to be safe about what I am getting into; proper hygiene between clients, how to paint in general.

I am using an Air brush and bought some safe airbrush paints and have bought
other things too; Snazaroo 22 Color Deluxe Kit,Wolfe FX Essential Palette 12 Colors, and there Fundraiser Kit. Plus one or two extra things, so that i can practice.

But I want the Clients to be best looked after, Tips suggestions??

Welcome to the Forum, themoxart!
You have a very good start in supplies.  
Our "language" in face painting is line work.
Start by practicing lines from thin to thick to thin to thick.
Teardrops: from the thick end to the tapering end, and then from the thin to the thick end.  Go from right to left, then left to right to create both types of teardrops.  
Scrolls and Swirls.

There is a place to post and share your art with a kind, non-judgemental audience in Show and Tell. There is a game of Face Paint Tag going on in Tag You're It! Join us!

You don't live too far from me, and you are welcome to join my team at our jams.   Rose Winkworth (Winky the Clown) hosts monthly jams on Sheppard Ave., just north of Downsview Park in Toronto.  

Happy Painting!
