PREPARATION

Before starting, you ensure your hands and nails are well cleaned. File your nails if necessary, so that there are no snags. By doing this you prevent damages on the face and risk of infection.

Always work using clean materials (sponges, brushes, spatulas, water bowls) and change the water regularly.

Get the subject to put on any clothes beforehand that have to be put on over the head. Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

If you are going to be painting several children, have them sit on high stools, preferably with backs. A proper working posture prevents back complaints.

Hint: children like to be able to watch their face being painted in the mirror. This will generally ensure they are less easily distracted and are more likely to sit still.

If children have skin irritation or small cuts on their faces, you can also do the painting on the hand.
