Face painting is always a big hit with the kids. Whenever you go to any fair or event in the summer in-particular, the thing I get most pestered about is getting their face painted.
So wouldn’t it be great if you could recreate the fun of the fair at home and do it yourself? Well that’s just what me and the boys have been doing with the wonderful Face painting kit we were sent from Galt Toys.
The set is very comprehensive, with a lot more than I thought would be included. You get 7 colours in your palette of face paints, although you can obviously make other colours by mixing 2 together, 5 face pencils, 2 brushes, 2 sponges and 2 pots of glitter paint, and 4 stencils with various designs like hearts, stars and whiskers. When you open the set you certainly feel like your getting value for money, with all of the paints and accessories included.
Opposite is my first ever attempt at face painting, I adorned Thomas with the image of his favourite comic book hero Spider Man. For a first attempt I think I did a pretty good job, my client was certainly very happy with the result. I used the blocks of face paint for the majority of the design, and used the face pencils for the black lines.
Thomas sat very well the whole way through, he was very well behaved all the way through. I was a bit apprehensive about using the face pencil, I thought this may hurt a bit and he may start moaning and being fidgety, but no it was fine he said it didn’t hurt or feel funny at all.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the Galt Face Painting set, excellent value for money and even better once you factor in all of those fair ground face paining stalls you’ll be able to avoid.
