PostSubject: Face paint advice   Tue May 05, 2015 11:52 am

Hey everyone! ^_^

I'm in the process of doing my son's graduation pictures, and the one idea we really want to do is to paint his face with the colorful "puzzle pieces" theme used to represent autism. My concern is how face paint always looks cracked when it dries. Since the photos will be up close I really want to avoid this.

So would anyone have any advice as to what to use or what to do with face paint so it keeps a smooth appearance on skin when it dries?

Any tips is greatly appreciated!

Use grease paint and a setting powder. It won't crack but you have to mind not getting it all over!

I did the clown thing years ago, had a nightmare with grease paint, ended up having to use foot scrub to get it off, and it still took hours... dont know if I did it wrong. Still, clown makeup was what I was thinking, that or some form of airbrush,but that doesnt get very sharp lines.

For a full face paint I'd use professional (theatrical use) water paint and translucent powder.  Never noticed any cracking provided it's not applied too thickly.  I have thin, sensitive skin and grease paint starts to itch within minutes, even if it's just half a cheek covered by it.  
I'd try out several brands and give them a trial run to see what works best. The water paint I used (Leichner brand) was rather inexpensive and worked very well with different designs.
