Where To Learn How To Face Paint


Learning the art of face painting


If you want to learn how to face paint the following information will guide you on your way. I’ve created links to face paint kit, paints and guide books that I recommend to you. I use ‘Snazaroo’ paints myself and love the professional finish and great range of colours. Use my pictures freely for guides and face painting ideas.

In the past I have provided training sessions for my employee’s who have gone onto paint fantastically and even started their own businesses; so one-to-one sessions are highly  recommended when learning to face paint. Contact your local face painters to see if they offer face painting training. Use my Entertainers Directory to find your local face painter.


Where to start learning:


Training from your local face painter:

If you do not know where to start contact your local face painter they may offer training or may be willing to guide you for a fee. They may even need some help with up coming events and offer to train you up for free. It's always worth asking as this is how I started face painting professionally.


Face painting courses:

Check out your local colleges for face painting courses, if you have no luck try a more national search.

Teach yourself to face paint from a book:

Face painting is a skill that you can pick up through taking inspiration and gaining practice. So buy a good face painting book and a starter kit and get practicing on your own hands and arm or ask a patient friend or child.

Practice basic brush strokes and sponge work on your own arms and hands or on your own face in the mirror, some people may find this tricky however it worked for me. Or you can buy plastic masks however you will not get the feel for the skin by using these.


How to use a face painting book
Some face painters eventually do not need a guide book for reference as they start to memorise the designs. However other face painters would not leave home without their face painting guide books, so please do not feel any pressure. Use the books as much as you feel the need to, that  is what they are there for after all. A good couple of painting guide books could last a lifetime
.
Create your own scrap book

My advice is to make notes all over your face painting books, I did. Print photo’s from the Internet, take your own and stick them in  and make notes, your book could turn into a lovely little scrap book of beautiful face paintings.


It is a great comfort to have a guide book to refer to when you are learning to face paint, I have lost count of how many times a child has asked for something and my mind has just gone blank.


Remember every artist has their own style as does every face painter, so do not worry too much about getting every line and colour exact when you are copying from a guide book. Start developing as a face paint artist and be experiment with colour and brush strokes.
