Face painting stencils take any face painting design to another level of wow! They can be used on their own or over a simple background or rainbow for a super quick and easy face paint. Or they can be one part of a more complete design, adding intricacy, efficiency and accuracy to any design, while cutting crucial minutes off the time taken per person.
- Can be cleaned with baby-wipes, soap & water, or alcohol.
- Can be used with paint, temporary tattoo ink or dry powders.
- Use a sponge or spouncer to apply.
- These stencils can be used many times, and will last a long time if you take care of them.
- To create a 3-D effect apply one colour, allow to dry, then apply second colour with the stencil slightly to one side, higher or lower.
- Get creative and try combining more than one stencil into a design for extra coolness!
To avoid the paint bleeding or smudging:
- Make sure the base coat of paint is dry before stencilling over the top
- Hold the stencil firmly against the skin. For a larger stencil, walk your fingers around the stencil to hold it close to where you are working.
- Apply a small amount of creamy, not watery paint
- Dab, don’t wipe or brush the paint on
- Clean & dry the stencil between uses
To clean the stencil:
- You can wipe it clean with a ‘baby wipe’. Be careful not to snag pointy bits. I like to sandwich the stencil between two wet wipes, or even two dry tissues, laying it all on a flat surface. I lay my whole hand on top and gently rub back and forth a little. It doesn’t take much.
- Alternatively, you can run it under a tap and simply wipe the paint off with your fingers and the water. A little soap can help too. Then blot gently with a dry cloth.
- When you’re on the job and really pressed for time, you can often get away with simply blotting the paint on the stencil dry between uses, if you’re re-using it with the same colour.
- If you find a stencil becomes stained with colour that soap or a wet wipe won’t remove, try an antibacterial wipe
