    The art of face and body painting
    Face and body painting is a form of art. Safe and non-toxic face & body paint is used to create art on a person’s face or body by using it as a canvas.  Painting that is confined to the face is usually called face painting; while large-scale painting on the body is referred to as body painting. However, paintings that are small and have more detailed work are sometimes called temporary tattoos.   This type of art is temporary and can only last for a few hours. It can be removed by using water, soap, alcohol or a mild solvent.
    Face & body paint is available in standard, fluorescent and metallic colours. Some brands also have a range of shimmering glitter colours. They are generally packed in various sized jars, squeeze bottles or tubes and can be purchased from art materials and supplies outlets and online shops. By purchasing quality face and body painting supplies you can avoid the risk of allergic reactions.
    Types of easels available for children
    Easels for children are typically designed to be smaller and shorter than those used by adults. They invariably have two sides or more allowing the young artist to work on any side instead of just one. Each side of the kid’s easel could have different surfaces, for example a chalk board or green board on one side and paper roll for drawing or painting on the other. They are also usually equipped with trays or storage compartments to hold the art supplies of the child. Various types of easels are available for children like table top easels, adjustable easels, double sided easels and more.
  2. There are many different types of materials, supplies and tools that an artist requires to create his works of art. These can be purchased from art supply outlets or from online stores. Qualities and prices vary for these supplies based on their brand as well as level of talent. Supplies used by professional artists would cost more than those available for students.
    The many types of art easels available today
    An art easel is a support or stand that is used by an artist to rest his drawing surface or canvas while he is working on it. Most easels are adjustable in height, width and angle, allowing the artist to raise, lower or adjust the angle at which he can view his work, at the same time giving it the support it requires. Their design allows them fit into small working areas and they are usually collapsible making it easy for storage. There are various types, shapes and styles of art easels and they come in a wide range of sizes. There are studio easels like  A-
    frame easels, art horses and bench easels, giant easels, H-frame easels, single-mast easels and wall mounted easels to name a few. There are also table easels, outdoor easels, children’s easels as well as display and presentation easels. An art easel can be made from aluminium, metal or wood.

  5. Face painting is one of the simplest art that can make your children really happy. However, it can be difficult to work with children. Here are few tips that should be followed while painting faces of your children:

    • Wash your hand using either hand sanitizer or baby wipes before applying any face paint on the faces of the children. You should   also wash it when you are done with face painting of one of the children and moving to another.
    •  Check if there is any allergy, rashes or wounds on the skin of the children. If you see any such mark, do not paint that area.
    •  Face paint products, if not chosen wisely can have harmful impact on the skin of the children. It is essential to use non toxic products from well known brands to be on the safe side. It is better to use water based paints which get cleaned off easily with mild soap and water.
    •  The easiest way of face painting is to first apply color to entire face and then add sparkles and accents. There are many face paint and design books available in the market. You can choose one for inspiration and practice.
    •  You should never use acrylic or craft paints for face painting as it can cause many skin allergies
    •  Keep cleaning materials such as baby wipes, hand sanitizer, towels to drape over the child to clean unwanted paint droplets.
    •  Do not use metallic craft glitter for face painting. You should use glitter made up of polyester only with approx .008 microns or smaller size.

     And, lastly practice makes every one perfect. Once you have learned the basic, keep on practicing to make more intricate designs.
