A new trend is emerging in many parties for children all over Melbourne. For many kids face painting is now becoming a true cultural phenomenon. Now Crystal Faces, the premiere face painting Melbourne service, is issuing helpful tips for adults who want to help their children join in the fun.
For many years, children's parties have all been about costumes. Face painting isn't replacing that tradition. Instead, face painting is complementing that hallowed custom. It's no longer enough to dress like a clown or a mermaid. The face must be painted as well, and for children the entire process is part of the fun.
Parents and adults, however, must make sure that they have the right equipment, just like Crystal Faces professionals do. And the most important equipment is patience. "Children can be boisterous and hyperactive," said one parent who took advantage of the Crystal Faces service. "I was glad that the Crystal Faces pros did all the work. Better them than me!"
Crystal Faces also prioritize safety, so parents who want to paint their children themselves must first check that they have the right paint. The paint must be cosmetic grade. Just because the paint is labeled "non-toxic" does not make it suitable for the faces of children.
Paints to avoid include oil-based and acrylic craft. In addition, water color pencils, pens, or markers should be avoided. Once you find the right safe paint to use, there should be enough colors.
Three different types of brushes are often standard. The equipment list includes makeup sponges, glitter, and temporary tattoos. Crystal Faces have professionals with considerable artistic skills, but for harried parents, stencils may also be part of the service.
According to Crystal Service, face painting has also become a more noticeable trend among corporate parties too. "Corporate parties can be fun affairs, but only if you do them right," said a noted HR veteran. "The best parties are when both bosses and subordinates are having fun on an equal basis, and costumes and face painting offers a fun way for bosses to show their casual side."
Employees can also demonstrate more loyalty to the company by going all out with face painting when the party has a special theme. "Most of the guys just wore costumes," said one face painting enthusiast. "The bosses noticed me more when I came in with my face painted as well."
Adults can be very creative when it comes to what they want to look like. But for parents, children have different tastes. They may want to look like a tiger, a mermaid, a pirate, a clown. Some boys want to look like the Incredible Hulk. Parents should be ready for that sort of thing.
