HOW TO ACTIVATE PARADISE FACE PAINTS?
To activate Paradise face paints, use a damped face painting sponge or face painting brush. First, get your sponge or brush slightly wet; make sure to remove any excess water before activating the face paint. Then, rub the brush or sponge against the face paint cake in order to activate the paint. Make sure to keep rubbing back and forward until the paint has a creamy consistency. If you are using a face painting brush for line work, you can also go for a more ink-like consistency. If you have too much water on the cake, keep rubbing the sponge or brush in order to work that water into the paint and get the right consistency. Paradise face paints are creamier than other brands since they are glycerin based so you might need more water than with wax based face paints.
HOW TO USE PARADISE FACE PAINTS SOLID COLORS?
Once you have your preferred applicator loaded with face paint, then apply it to the skin. If you are using a sponge, make sure to apply the face paint using a patting motion rather than swiping your sponge. Patting gently and consistently gives you a much smoother and opaque base than swiping your sponge. We recommend using face painting sponges when applying a base coat.
When working with brushes, simply lay the face painting brush against the skin and move in the desired direction. Make sure to keep a steady, firm hand to have good control over your brush.
HOW TO APPLY PARADISE PRISMA CAKES?
Using split cakes can look tricky at first, but once you get used it you will find them easy to use. When loading your split cake, make sure to move your sponge or brush back and forward, following the direction of the stripes. Make sure not to shake your applicator side to side so that the colors don't get muddy. You can apply a nice base coat using Paradise Prisma Cakes; just pat your sponge gently against the skin, making sure to keep it constantly moving in the same direction so that the colors don't get muddy. You can always use a fan-like movement or a side-by-side movement. When using a brush, you will likely want to use a 3/4' or 1" face painting brush since those allow you to pick up more colors. Move your brush in the direction you wish, making sure not to flip your brush so that colors don't get muddy.
HOW TO REMOVE PARADISE FACE PAINTS?
Paradise face paints can be removed easily with just soap and water. You can use a soft sponge or cloth to aid in the removal process. Always start by coating the skin with a thin layer of soap. Once you have worked the soap into the face paint, then proceed to rinse. You might need to repeat this process a few times. Always make sure to be gentle; excessive rubbing of your skin can cause irritation. Also, we suggest not to use scented baby wipes since the perfume can cause allergic reactions. If any stains are left on the skin, consider using lotion. You might need to let the lotion set in for a few minutes before wiping it off. In the rare case in which a stain is still visible after this process, please wait for 24 hours before attempting to wash off the area again. Normal sweating and oil produ
