festiFACE 14 Color Complete Face Painting Kit
The Festiface kit contains 14 vibrant colors, two glitter pots, three brushes and 30 stencils. The paraben-free paints are water-based, organic, and hypo-allergenic. The creamy, non-runny, consistency provides full coverage, with no cracking. The stencils are exciting, familiar choices for the little ones; they adhere well and remove easily, perfect for reusing, and helping beginning artists gain confidence with their painting techniques.
The children’s enthusiasm was contagious. Mixing new colors was tremendous fun. The 3-year-olds were identifying and selecting one color for their design. (Cotton candy pink was the most popular new color.) The 4’s requested several colors and enjoyed experimenting with the combinations. Animals came alive as soon as the painting was finished. Mistakes easily wiped away with water. The older children worked both individually and cooperatively. They learned brush techniques quickly and graduated from stencils to free-style designs masterfully, and from cheek painting to hands, arms, and feet. The website tip to keep a mirror handy was great. That’s when the designs became more elaborate. It was impressive seeing the girls skillfully use a mirror in one hand and a brush in the other. A delightful gift for artists, carnival makers, and birthday party goers.
