Simple Face Painting Image Ideas:

If  you are manning a face painting booth at a Halloween carnival or birthday party, it’s a good idea to have a poster-board giving examples of the simple face painting images you can make.  This will speed up the line and make it easier on everyone involved.

Here are several easy face painting image ideas from Executive Homemaker:  ghost, witches hat, spider, pumpkin, basketball, football, smiling face, balloon, and heart.

    Please let your readers know:

    Please be sure, if you’re not hiring a professional face painter to do the painting for you (as many of us are taking appointments for Halloween costume face painting!), that you’re using proper products that are FDA-compliant and meant for use on the face.

    Avoid acrylic paints, oil paints, temperas, and those terrible homemade concoctions you can find online. Also, you will NOT get your best results with the cheap Halloween face paints you can find in costume shops at this time of year.

    Look for the Klutz book, which has good quality FDA-compliant face paint/makeup, or any Snazaroo kits. Those are the best for novices.

    Also, NO CRAFT GLITTER, only cosmetic glitter!

    There’s a ton of face paint safety information on my blog; feel free to quote it or link to it, as long as you give credit.

    These are so cute!

    I was volunteered to face paint once and the kids kept asking for such crazy things that were far beyond my artistic ability. Half-way though the day I created a sample board of designs as a starting point. Most of the kids chose something off the board, and my day went a whole lot better.

    So cute, I am not artistic at all and can’t draw a stick figure to save my life but those faces rock!

    I completely agree! I’ve manned several face painting booths myself but I have very little painting skills. So having my poster-board with the simple designs I could actually draw made everything easier! The line went faster, kids were happier, and I was more confident. I went ahead and uploaded a picture of my board so you can see it. It’s made from that heavy foam board that you use for science projects. 🙂

  5. Mel

    I whole heartedly agree with Larissa.

    I’ve been face painting for many years and all professionals put in a lot of time, money and energy in learning their craft. A large part of the learning is about safety and hygiene.

    Follow Larissa’s advice, it is timely and spot on.

    I recently started face painting…and I love it!

    One very helpful idea…if you own a Cricut machine use it for making stencils.
    Buy transfer paper the kind that is used for overhead projectors. (usually found in Office supply stores)
    Using the shadow mode on your Cricut with any design at about 2-3 inches in size.
    Place your stencil over any cheek and add your face paint with sponge, just dabbing in on, you can then add details with black paint and a brush and some cosmetic glitter.
    All there is to it! Quick and easy,

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!
