Customer Questions about Face Painting for Clowns

Q: Hi, I was wondering if you could find out if the Mehron Fantasy F/X Face Paint Tubes - Blue (1 oz) (Product F1201) would dry after being applied or if it is like grease paint and would just stay wet.
A: All water-based face paints dry, but at different rates. Mehron Fantasy F/X Face Paint takes slightly longer to dry than other face paints--approximately 60 seconds.

Q: When applying the Ben Nye Aqua Glitter (F1420 - F1427), what type of brush should you use?
A: Ben Nye Aqua Glitter does have a brush attached to the lid (sort of like nail polish). You can also use any other makeup brush, however it should be thoroughly washed with warm soapy water after use to prevent it hardening.

Q: Will a bottle (1oz) of liquid face paint be enough to cover an adult's entire head and neck? Please advise.
A: 1 ounce of liquid face paint has 20 - 70 applications, depending on the size of the design. So, it will be plenty to cover one adult head.

Q: What is the best paints to use on face and body? I am going to be painting my face and chest at an NFL football game and need it to be sweat proof because it will be hot. Someone recommended the Ben Nye liquid paints.
A: Face Paints are the best to use for face and body, because they are water based. Clown make-up is greased based and is harder to use to cover your body and is hard to remove. Face Paint will smear some, so you might want to take some to the football game or party to reapply. Liquid makeup is easy to use for a large area, like when you are covering your entire body and the Ben Nye Liquid Paints are a very good choice. You can also dust yourself with baby powder or a neutral powder after you have painted yourself and that will help the paint stay put. You can also apply No Sweat Skin Prep to your skin first to minimize sweating (probably best to avoid places that need to sweat, like your armpits), and finish with Ben Nye Final Seal for increased durability of the makeup.

Q: I am a photographer for a roller derby league. We are having our season opener in late October so it will be a Halloween theme. I need to paint my face but because I will be using my camera, is there anything I can use that will keep it from smudging a lot?
A: Face Paints are water based, that makes them easy to apply and remove, but they do smudge when they get wet or touched a lot. Good face paints, like the ones we carry, stay pretty much in place, however. I would recommend taking a little bit of the color you are going to have around your eyes with you to the event and you can reapply it if your camera eye piece smudges it. You can also finish with Ben Nye Final Seal for increased durability of the makeup.
