Covering eyelids with color.

Post by LizzyAllen on Sat Oct 18, 2014 5:18 pm

Little kids wrinkle their eyes when they close them so how would you get solid color without lines? Like say on a 3 year old boy who wants a pirate eye patch.

there was a recent thread on this with lots of helpful suggestions. if you type "little boys eyes" in the search box above, it will pop up.

many face painters would probably recommend not doing eyelids on very young kids, though, just paint around them as close as possible.

I have them look at me and show them how to close their eyes like they are sleeping, not scared. Bottom line is that some kids (especially little boys) will instinctively shut their eyes real tight no matter what you do or say.

Thank you for the link. I'm on my phone and there's no search option otherwise I would have done that. I'm sure the topic had been discussed several times before.
