I am not a huge fan of face paints for one simple reason, many of the ingredients are banned in other countries, yet, here in the US they are allowed. I am not going to go into great detail on my reasoning other than that. If you don’t believe feel free to look into coloring and additives that are banned in other countries and why.
The face paints below are all natural and best of all, you more than likely have all the ingredients in your home right now.
1 Tablespoon Crisco shortening
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
Mix all ingredients together until smooth. Use sponge or brush to apply to face. Washes off with soap and water.
Face Paint #2
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. cold cream (all natural)
Mix cornstarch and cold cream together until smooth. Mix in water and food coloring. Use a small brush to paint designs on the children’s faces. Store in an airtight container.
