Howdy from San Francisco!

Post by Jengo on Fri Jul 02, 2010 12:44 am

Hello all! I've been lurking around the forum for a little while now... great inspiration for my new-found face painting obsession.

I've also been curious about the safety of certain colours around certain areas of the face. For example, Paradise states to avoid yellow & red in the eye area and to avoid blue and green on the lips, and Wolfe says to avoid red around the eye. Are there any other color/area combos that I should be aware of? And do you think that bright pinks or metallic variations of colours would be included in the "not within 1/2" of the eye" type rule?
I've been trying palettes from Snaz & Paradise, and I have a Wolfe rainbow cake... but I'd like to know more about the safety involved in each brand & colour before I start buying larger individual paints.


Thanks! And I can't wait to start sharing my painting adventures with you lovely folks here on the forum (most likely with my wonderfully accommodating boyfriend as a model)!

Welcome! I laughed at using your boyfriend as a model! My husband let me practice on his arm (after I scrubbed mine raw one day trying to get off the Wolfe Black)(don't use a Magic Eraser on your skin), but he hasn't let me do his face yet. If the US Soccer team had made it the finals, I think I might have convinced him, but alas, not this time!
Good luck!

Thank you all!

My boyfriend is a cartoonist and actor, so face painting is totally cool to him... I painted him as a rainbow tiger one night for practice and he didn't want to take it off... even though we had to go out!

Hello and Welcome. You're lucky to have an adult as a willing model, kids get tired of it much more quickly. Good Luck!
