Yes Shannon and other notable painters like the Wolfe brothers amaze me with what they can do with their linework and use of fewer colors. Denise wrote a great essay on the different syles of painter's on one of the threads. I'm still so new that I love to "experiment" still.

Fantasy worldwide glitter is the best for me... Especially the golden white, it just goes with everything, and sticks to the paint easily.... I use a fan brush to distribute glitter on the part I want it to be... Just put the fan brush in the glitter, tap it over the face. Dabbling it on the area with the fan brush works as well, but if the paint's still wet I get my fan brush dirty, and I have like a gazillion colours of glitter, would hate to get paint in them...

Thanks so much for the advice Tineke Very Happy I am going to have to give your technique a try. The poofer I am using just seems to waste more than anything and doesn't stick well... Maybe I am just not USING it right? I want a SUPER shimmery glitter!!!

As simple as it sounds, the key to getting your glitter to stick is moisture. I have a fine mister that I use to spray the design right before I pouf the glitter. Most of the time I glitter the base while it's a little damp and it works find. You also want to make sure you use the glitter with the finest particles. Metina's blue fairy glitter is the bomb diggidy and I use it on everything instead of the standard holographic white. Good Luck~

I usually glitter in layers or I accent the last bit of wet paint at the end(usually dots and stars). Smile

I have been facepainting casually for four years now, and I love it.

I live in New Zealand, unfortunately Snaz is really the only paint we get, sometimes it can be hard to even find that! So I know a fair amount about it, the lady I worked for had around 36 colours in the full sized snaz.. some are lovely and some are baaaad.

The white (and pretty much all of the greys in Snaz are not particularly great in most circumstances. It is not opaque, even with up to three coats, and is streaky and just not good in general. If mixes nicely with most of the other colours to make an opaque base but otherwise... steer clear.

Add a smidge of water to the black - instant mush. For some reason this turns into a swamp upon contact with water - is beautifully opaque and the pigment is nice, but because it doesn't work well with any amount of water its unsuitable for fine lines.

The reds are LOVELY. They and the black are the most staining, but a little makeup remover or something similar gets them off well. The reds have a very strong pigment, and are perfect for budding spidermen. Same with the oranges.

The pinks, greens, purples and browns are all quite nice too, the pink especially goes on lovely and was always a hit with the kids!

Thats as much as I can remember at the moment... hope this is helpful to anyone considering trying snaz - get the hot colours to try, for the most part they are very nice. Apologies for any spelling etc mistakes... it's late and my brain is half asleep

Are you sure you haven't got too much water on your sponge when you're applying a white Snaz base? I ask because I've seen some who can do beautifully even bases with it - Perry's one of them. I can usually get a reasonable base, though I like Superstar's clown white paint too (not a grease paint like most "clown white", just the name of their sponging-base white). The white in my avatar tiger is Snazaroo.

Have you got Snaz's sparkle/metallic colours? They're reallllly pretty.

I am about to place a small order and I need it to include a nice red, I have the Diamond FX right now and it is very bad...almost orange. Any suggestions or pic comparisons? I am leaning toward snaz and tag...

I use TAG Metallic red and Kryolan red. Wolfe red is decent, too. I'm one who likes to mix colors before I apply.

I love snaz red, and tag red. They are similar in color, a true red. Just depends on which type you like better.

I have no problems with an even coverage with snaz white either, it's a consistency thing, but I prefer the paradise, because I don't have to work it as much.

I just went to Michael's and picked up snazaroo red and black and I LOVE them! Thanks for the advice eva! That really helped me out ALOT...I really hate the Diamond FX red, it goes on well but it is more orange and I needed a true red for the halloween parties I have scheduled. Still plan on placing an order for some splits and 1-strokes based on all the comparisons here. I think I like the tag neon better than my Diamond FX to, I am gonna give it a try! I love you

They are, I tried one today to make sure. They are rectangular and have a makeup swab type applicator with them. They say wolf/ not wolfe on the back upper corner, but nowhere on the front. They say water activated on the front. I saw red, black, white, yellow , pink, light blue, green and brown. There is a whole thread on the wolf/wolfe thing on here somewhere.

Hope you feel better soon Maggie.
Erica, you are welcome.

I couldn't find them at the walmart by me either Sad but I did place a small order...TAG 1-Stroke: Neon, TAG Beige: 32 Grams, TAG Gelati Rainbow: 50 gram, TAG Foxy Blender: 50 gram. Can't wait to try them out! I have only used Diamond FX and now thanks to eva Wink I also have a couple Snazaroo. Based on the pic comparisons though I think I am going to be very happy! Anyone try the Foxy blender? I'm hoping I can make a decent wolf with it....
