Face painting is applying a design to the face, using
brushes and paints suitable for use on the skin. Face
painting is common at festivals and parties for children.
The designs may be very simple or extremely complex.
It takes a great deal of practice to be able to work
with the contours of the human face and create an animal
face from it. Being able to blend the face paint colors
well enough to look realistic also takes a lot of practice.
Simple face painting designs that are quick to wash
off can still be a lot of fun for kids. Face painting
can add to the festive feeling of an event or party.
