Face paint can bring fun and life to any event be it a birthday party, fete, fundraiser, school play or a festive celebration. You can create amazing designs from intricate angel wings, to simple peace signs to bold lions, tigers and bears that can cover the whole body. Face painting is a form of body art that dates back to the earliest forms of self-expression. It has been used for ritual significance, creating characters in Hollywood and used by soldiers the world over. Face painting is as practical as it is fun to use.
As a team of artists and creators with over a decade of experience in the art supplies industry, we carry a select range of face and body paint that has been tested and tried in our own stores, studios and sold time and time again for use at fundraisers and to school teachers. Whether you are looking for small pots, large tubs, sticks or henna we will have you covered with the best face paint brands available.

Both Derivan face and body paint and Global Liquid face paints will not disappoint. They are easily applied in many different scenarios with the use of a nylon/taklon paintbrush, sponges or latex applicators. There are some great inexpensive nylon/taklon paintbrush packs that will give the artist even coverage with both broad and fine lines when applying the face paint, the hairs on the brushes are nice and soft to touch and they will retain there shape for a long period of time. Face paint sticks like the Renoir sticks and Texta can be used with the paint pots and are great if you want to get through a lot of faces or bodies quickly as they allow you to simply draw straight on to the skin.
