Tim Gratton Body & Face Paint 250ml
The new 75ml tubes are proving to be popular with retailers and face painters alike. We’ve also now introduced a new Iridescent colour that will add a little shimmer to the entire range. You can use the Iridescent Body and Face by itself, or mix with other colours to give the paint a stunning pearlescent look. This is fantastic for creating magical effects, or adding another dimension to any design from butterflies to Spiderman.
It is advisable to use Tim Gratton Body & Face over a "barrier" or hand cream on the face to lessen the chance of an adverse reaction on sensitive skin. Do not use on persons with sensitive skin or skin conditions. Do not apply to open wounds. Avoid contact with eyes, nasal passages, mouth or other orifices as abrasive irritation may occur.
Using a clean palette knife or other utensil, remove as much paint from the container as necessary for the session and replace lid.
Do not return unused paint to the container!
Apply a barrier cream or hand cream to the skin before painting: this will make it even easier to remove Tim Gratton's Face and Body Paint from the skin.
Apply the with a soft brush, sponge, cotton wool or cosmetic dabber. It is strongly advisable, if painting more than one face, to use a disposable applicator such as cotton wool and discard after each person - be careful not to re-immerse the applicator in the paint.
Do not apply the barrier cream or Tim Gratton Body & Face too close to the eyes as both contain solid particles which may irritate the eyes.
Tim's tips and tricks of the trade:
Hairspray can be used to coat the hair before applying body paint. Hairspray can also be sprayed over the completed body painting to prevent rubbing or flaking over long periods. Avoid eyes and mouth when spraying.
Olive Oil can be applied with a spray atomizer over the body paint to give a silky shine or you can mix it with the metallic paint on the second coat to make it really glossy. Apply the first coat of paint without olive oil.
It is possible to use an airbrush for fine detail or spray gun for larger areas with Tim Gratton Body & Face. Brilliant effects can be achieved with the use of an airbrush. All the colours and the metallics (except the gold and silver glitter) will go through the smallest of airbrushes. However, a 0.3 mm or larger size is recommended. Dilute with water up to equal parts and spray apply. An approved mask should be worn when spraying with the paints even though the paints are non-toxic.
Removal of paints stains:
Tim Gratton Body & Face is formulated to be easily removed from clothing. However, old clothing should be worn as some fabrics may stain. Tim Gratton Body & Face is formulated using pigments rather than dyes as dyes tend to stain much more readily. With the thumb and forefinger of each hand slowly work the stain in a rolling action thereby releasing the paint and colour into the soapy water. Change the water as necessary and repeat washing action. Do not use hot water. Some stubborn stains may need to be soaked overnight. Tim Gratton Face & Body are formulated to swell up and release when submerged in soapy water. Other methods of cleaning will generally only act to drive the stain in deeper. Do not boil, dry clean or use chemical solvents or thinners. Do not iron over a stain. Do not machine wash. Keep stained garments separate from other washing.
Body & Face will wash off with soap and water on the skin. Avoid getting the product on clothing. Tim Gratton Body & Face contains pigment and will stain clothes.
All the colours may be intermixed to form bright secondary and tertiary colours.
Keep all brushes and utensils wet while working. Avoid letting them dry out as the face paint is much easier to remove from brushes while wet. Wash all utensils, brushes and hands with soap and water to clean up.
