Go Wild Face Painting
Face painting is a big part of carnival tradition. It is very popular and a great way to join in Go Wild from home. On the next few pages we have put together some links and tips to get you started if you are new to face painting and something to inspire the advanced face painters out there.
Tools and Tips
There is a well known brand of face paints that are widely available. Without endorsing any one product these are the ones you are likely to see for sale and we use them a lot. They are a good quality. Their website has some excellent free resources and is a good place to start because they have a run down of basic equipment and some great starter video's here.
They also have clear instructions on painting a very cool rainbow tiger
