Post by kidcruze on Thu Jun 18, 2015 3:10 pm

In a few weeks i have my first wrestling match which I would like to be painted up for what is the best paint to use and way to apply for it not to come off to much while im in the ring sweating.

The forum shop sells ProAiir Water Proof Paint here : http://www.facepaintforumshop.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=1931

I would think this would be your best bet - but I have no idea, lol! I've painted mine like The Warrior but never wrestled in it Razz

Most stencils are made with a flexible plastic mylar, it's not that thick around 2 cardstock pieces thick I think.

Well a typical stencil that we use is made out of Mylar - BAM stencils are 7.5 mil - but based on a darth maul design, a stencil wouldn't be of much use if you or someone you know, knows how to paint faces.

Edit: I got beat to the punch, pun intended...

lol

Forest Fairy has a stencil shop, I think I remember reading that she can do customs.

I wonder if it would be better to air brush then?? Depends on your budget really, a sponge could work too. I do know that Mehron has a good barrier spray.

This one

That could help as well.

For best results you want to use ProAiir Hybrid Paint. However this requires an airbrush system. If you have that or know some one who does then buy a red for the base and have some one airbrush your face red.

Then you'll want to buy a bottle of a product called 'dips' to paint your black details over top.

You seriously don't need a stencil for this, it would actually be easier to do with out one in my opinion.

Stencils are NOT a quick fix to not knowing how to paint. In many cases they are much trickier to get the hand of and have more margin for error if not applied right.

I suggest one of two options

Option 1. Grab a friend who is good with a brush and have them paint the design on you.

Option 2. Practice. This is the best option because then you can do it all yourself. It's a pretty simple blocky style pastern of a single color with no blending, or fine line work required. It's as simple as it gets really. Paint it a few times on yourself and you'll be a pro pretty fast.

Best of luck.
