??? Do you mean product recommendations? I think everyone here is pretty supportive, but the term 'starving artist' applies to most. Doubtful anyone is giving it away!! LOL

haha no, i am willing to buy them from someone. I dont have enough paints for us to both work at the same time. I can get her brushes locally but there are absolutely no places to buy face paint around here unless it halloween and ordering them online takes forever. Im hoping i can pick up someone's used paints for cheaper than buying them new online.

I can vouch for the forum here! I'm up in Canada and her stuff came super fast!!!
Good prices too and you can't beat the shipping .....

Well...I have to pay a bit more but....

Did I mention I'm from Canada?? Laughing
Srsly....I got my order in about a week and I understand that everyone here has had super good service as well.

Probably yet just one more reason I love this place!!

Do you have any Michael's Craft stores near you? I started out with Snazaroo kits because I couldn't afford anything else at first. I used that until I made the money to buy a set of TAG paints.

You won't get paints faster anywhere else than Metina's store. I think she straps a jet pack to each package she sends out.

Thanks guys for the kind words!

Though if you want to list the items you are looking for specifically, someone might be willing to sell some older stuff to clean out there's and do a refresh.

You will probably get more help with a list of what you need rather than just a "help, I need paint!" I know I have some older stuff, but won't bother listing till I know what you need.

I made a kit for my daughter using a water color paint pallette (with the paint removed of course) I just scooped a little of my paints out with a plastic knofe and pressed it into the spaces. Didn't take much out of my pots and she now has the same variety of colors that I do. And it is amazing how far the paint goes! Certainly enough to get started.

I make my splits differently than everyone else does because I just can't bear to cut up a whole cake to make them! Just like with the solid colors, I scoop out a little with a plastic knife. Then I roll it into a tiny snake between some plastic wrap-- like you would with play-dough. I set the snakes in the order I like them, then press it all together into the hole. Pictured above is my daughter's kit all pretty right after I made it, but I have a simmilar one-- (the colors are in no particular order and there are no rainbows) Honestly, you will be surprised just how far the paint will go.

Snazaroo at Michaels, also use the 40 or 50% off coupon that's in almost every Sunday paper.

I am about to list some of my Ben Nye paints I don't use anymore if you're interested in those. They are what I started with and now have some bigger paints and brands. I paid $4 for each one and will gladly accept $2 for each.
