How to practice face painting when there is no face painting

%collection_title% The Face Paint Shop where to buy face paints near me

So how do you face paint when there is no face painting?


Like most of us, we are at home and face painting jobs cancelled. It's unfortunate, but better to be safe.

Here is some ideas from The Face Paint Shop to keep you going.

  1. Practice at home. I mean, obviously. But actually really practice. Don't pack away your kit, but rather keep it open and ready. You may or may not be able to practice on actual people, but you can practice on yourself, your arms and legs. There are practice heads and mats available, or just plain paper. But do it. Keep up your skills. 

  2. Learn a new technique. Set that as a goal. Find a technique you want to master or improve, and work on that while you have time. Perhaps it's a realistic butterfly, shading or animal print. Take this time to up skill yourself for when you are back working again.

  3. Clean out your kit. Completely. Who has time when you're working on jobs all the time? Well you do now! So clean every single bristle, every sponge, every cake. Redecorate your entire kit with contact paper or spray paint. And then do your brush handles, your mirror, and anything else looming shabby.

  4. Follow YouTube videos and online tutorials.
    Even if you already know what the artists are doing, it will keep you contacted to the face paint world.

  5. Cosplay. What? I'm not a cosplayer, you say. No, but just for now, pick a character and facepaint that on yourself. Film it if you want more motivation. Try favourites like superheroes, optical illusions, or animals.

  6. Try another medium. Cake decoration, sketching, painting, knitting. Why? Cause it will keep you being creative. And you can crossover those skills to face painting.

  7. Consider other similar entertainment skills. Now is the time to learn. Body painting, pregnancy painting, balloon modelling, airbrush tattoos, or festival glitter. This is a perfect time to brush up on complementary skills to add to your repertoire.
