Face and Body Painting

Face painting is a great skill for children's entertainers. A clown can do 30 minutes of face painting after a show or games at a Birthday party. You can also face paint at picnics, festivals and community events.

The field of face painting is growing and changing all the time. Going to conventions, reading publications, and participating in local jams are great ways to learn the latest techniques and interact with other face painters.
