I'm a Paradise black user as well. And I use Snaz Black for my bases.

I also use the baby shampoo method like Ash.

So Lynn of Sparklynn Designs turned me into a tiger (pic from current illusion mag) at our late night jam and I accidentally fell asleep till the next day with it on! I removed most of it with bb wipes and then I just took an nice long shower and worked in a lot of lather of facial cleanser over my face. I also wash my hair 2x plus conditioner and work it in a bit as this helps get the blue/green stain (snazz) from my fingers...which reminds me I need to buy disposable gloves for long events! Here's a pic which was smugged while i slept

I keep snazz black in my kit for bases only and hardly ever use it. I try to use paradise on the kids line work -but love the crispness of dfx. When I want the most control I use the DFX.
I have directions on my card and on the web and always explain to the parent how to remove. I have never had anyone complain to me and I have repeat customers all the time.

Yes, I have this problem too with Diamond FX black and metallic blue, its extremely difficult to get it off. I can remove black (if I also remove the first layer of skin Razz) and the metallic blue stays like a stain for indeed about three days or so. While others tell me that works ok for them. The skin of my face is not very dry, but it definately has to do with differnences in skin type.

I guess it all comes down to people's individual skin types and pigmentation. I paint on my daughter and myself all the time using both wolfe Fx and DFX black on the face and body... and not ever had an issue with staining or shadowing. Every time I go to take it off... I reactivate the paint by just rinsing/splashing warm water...and that takes most of it off. I follow up one time with soap and goneeeee.

Baby wipes do not have an alcohol base, only water. The very best product for removing face paint stain is Wet Ones Brand wipes. I tell the parents if there is any type of staining on the skin, to use skin toner to lift it out of the pores.

Wet Ones are your best bet, you can find them in the picnic isle at Walgreens or CVS drug store.....

IF you use alot of these in a day for practice on your face, you will want to use a moisturizer after to balance your PH back to normal..

Once you use these, you will wonder why you ever tried anything else Smile

I've been using Neutrogena Make Up Remover wipes and it took the DFX black right off. The Wolfe black was another animal and I could've sworn I heard it laughing at my wipes! I also use a good thick moisturizer on my skin prior to doing any practicing and it seems to keep the paint out of my pores pretty well.

Here in Oz we have a type of wipes made by Johnson and Johnson called 'Sticky Fingers' they are in the baby section in Woolworths, they are the best thing I have ever discovered, they remove everything, from face paint off your skin to foundation off your clothes! They smell great ( you can get fragrance free too) are hypo allergenic and leave no residue, they are also PH balanced, so your skin never feels dried out.
I have no Idea if these are available overseas, but it would be worth finding out. I have loved them since my daughter was a baby, and they are the only thing I will use on myself or my clients. I regularly have people ask me where I got them.
I swear by them and would never be without them.

I just bought some dfx black. I love my paradise because it comes off SO easily , and parent appreciate that. Sometimes I wish the black and white were a little more like wolfe fx, but I think the safety and easy removal for kids events is far more important. I always hear parents tell kids they can't have their whole face painted because it was too hard to take off last time. I feel confident chiming in that my makeup is very easily removed with soap and water or even baby wipes. I also had a mom tell me that her kid is allergic to face paint that was difficult to remove, his face swelled up and could barely open his eyes. She said they told her it was professional paint, so I'm guessing it was Wolfe FX. I've never heard of a reaction from paradise, and I use it on myself all the time no acne or rashes on my sensitive skin!
I just bought some dfx black and white. Paradise white doesn't always have the opacity I want if I put it over another color. I also have used wolfe black and I do like the crisp lines, and I know dfx is similar. I think I'll keep it for use on adults, photography, and competitions (should I enter any). I also use baby wipes...Kirkland from Costco is fragrance free without alcohol and it says hypoallergenic. I have moms tell me all the time they use them because they don't ever irritate their kids skin like other brands. I use them on my face too, and my skin is super sensitive.

Everyone once in a while, I'll get a client who wants to be able to wipe them right off at night, BUT then I get these parents who ROCK! The batman mask using that black might stain longer or be harder to remove? PERFECT! Hey jonny you might be able to wear it tomorrow too! LOL! I tell them it will rub off, but they dont mind. I <3 them!

This is the exact reason why I love my Paradise paints, as beautiful as the DFX and Wolfs blacks are, I cannot justify putting it on a childs face and having them go through the stubborn removal, just to make it easier on myself. With the right consistency, brush and practice you can get the paradise black to perform very well or even the Snazaroo. Not dogging the DFX or Wolfe, they do make some fine products, but I don't want to inconvenience any of my patrons, I know for a fact they will remember it when its time to get painted again & I want them to gladly return worry free.

I was trying to wash dfx/Wolfe black off my face by starting with a baby wipe (Costco brand) but that just smeared it around and left ghost lines after washing. Also irritated my skin. Then I combined a couple of recommendations from the forum: using glycerin soap and rubbing in the soap first without water. Works so much better. I found using something with a little texture (i.e. paper towel) very gently helps a lot, too. I've been using liquid soap from Trader Joe's. It also has coconut & olive oils in it.

I use Wolfe & DFX (and have very dry skin). To get it off my face, I usually use one of my fp sponges- but sometimes a wash cloth. I just get it wet then wring it out really well. I put baby shampoo on the cloth/sponge then rub it all over my face (it makes almost like an emulsion). After rinsing, it's always gone. If I use TONS of black on my face- sometimes I have to wash my face twice. The only colors that I have a problem with staining are darker versions (both regular and metallic) green, blue, & purple... even they only stain me very faintly. Like I said- I have very dry skin & it works for me. My cousin has removed a full face design with a lot of Wolfe Black just using baby wipes (I always use the kinds with aloe & scent-free). My arm stains more often though (drier?). Here's something that I've noticed though... I paint the top of my arm all the time. I live in FL and it's usually really hot here. If I paint too far down (where the wrist bends) & I start sweating, it will take off my paint (obviously). It stains though. Now, the rest of what I've painted stays on until I wash it off (the way I explained earlier). That part comes off easily- but the part that originally started coming off (without soap) will be stained for at least a day... and it's not usually faint. It happens all the time! I don't know why...? Now I just don't paint that far down on my arm... but it's almost like it has to be taken off properly or it won't come off at all! lol

I have a child who has very sensitive skin and use DFX on him all the time. I use either Johnsons baby shampoo or a sensitive face wash rubbed straight onto his face, then wipe off with a damp face washer. I find as soon as I add water it turns into a huge mess and creates heaps of staining. Then moisturise when done. Black has never been a problem . . . green on the other hand . . . although since trying this method, we conquered green also. Good luck, not every product will work for every face, but if anyone were to invent one that is as easy to use as DFX, count me in!!

I use snaz black for the linework. The only staining issue I have had is with snaz teal, however I have oily skin, so any residue on my face oils off by morning. Huh, oily skin does have one good attribute.

I once saw a pic of a dragon face that had been washed, and there was red lines were all the black lining had been, at first they thought it to be a rash, but it was a sunburn. The black wolfe paint had absorbed the sunlight. It kinda shied me from trying the wolfe since I mainly paint in the hot season.

I've had the opposite happen with white marks on my arms where my tag rose arm painting and glitter tattoos have acted as sunblock very effectively!

I'm still trying to decide which black and white I want to try next for line work. For large skin coverage I still like snaz - gentle for little ones... but would like something more opaque for line work

I've got tag white which I like for line work, so am thinking of ordering tag black too... wondering what the difference is between dfx and tag white/black , or if there is enough difference to make the extra cost worthwhile?

Presently I have dfx gold and silver which I enjoy.
