MagiCake Aqua Paints are ideal for face painting, masquerade, fantasy, and animal designs.
How to Apply: use a damp Brush or Sponge1 and mix the paint into a creamy consistency. Paint on and allow to dry.
Accents: create eye popping accents that will set your designs above the rest. Apply Glitters2 directly to wet paint and allow it to dry in for a beautiful shimmer. Or, use Liquid Bling to create fine lines, swirls and decorations. We also have a great selection of Stencils for quick, perfect designs every time.
Other Resources: check out our Books for great design ideas. The internet is also a great source of pictures and other ideas, or talk to other artists!
Durability: aqua paints are fairly durable once they are dry but will reactivate and run if they come in contact with water or excessive perspiration. There is a variety of Makeup Sealers you can use to help protect your designs from transfer to clothing or running3.
Removal: paints can easily be removed with soap and water or with a gentle Makeup Remover.
Expect 25-50 applications.
1 Sponges are great for quickly painting large areas. When using a sponge look for a sponge that has 'pockets' or holes to soak up water. Do not use dense wedge makeup sponges. Daub on paint and buff out any streaks with your finger.
2 All our glitters are round cut cosmetic grade so they are safe for use on children and around eyes. Do not use craft glitter.
3 Sealers are recommended if paints are used on dancers, under hot lights, or for extended periods of time and other extreme conditions, they are not necessary for children's face painting.
