Make sure you read up on allergy tests before applying etc... just because body paints may be marked non-toxic, there are a lot of people allergic to latex.

You are to be commended for wanting information on Cosmetic grade body paint. This shows respect for your model. (Non-Toxic Craft Products are NOT Makeup.)

A good over view of what brands and products are used by face and body painters is www.sillyfarm.com

IMO - I would NOT advise Liquid Latex as a newbie body paint. It doesn't offer the line control of traditional water activated body paints like WolfeFX. Let alone latex's safety, allergy and technical considerations.

Take a walk through the FAQ - the is TONS of reading on the subject of body paint products, application, safety.....

What Lisa said, sillyfarm is a great place to start, and their "Faba TV" is not a bad place to get educated on technique as well.

There are many smaller face and body paint suppliers offer better prices than the bigger store as mentioned. We for one offer top brands and great prices, with personal attention.

Agreed.

I list Silly Farm because of it's comprehensive product list - it really is a good place to see all the major brands.

Personally, I don't order from them.

At the same time, I'm also very above and beyond in stating any personal affiliations I have in the industry....
