How to Stay Cool While Painting in the Summer Heatby Jessica Wilson Blog Writer
Face painting is one activity your kids will love. However, if you’re worried about face painting during the summer, here are must-know suggestions on how to get your children to stay cool for those sessions.
Have Water Handy
Start with yourself first. You’ll need to stay hydrated to keep painting under the heat. One way to stay cool is to have plenty of water at hand. If you’re doing the session outside, make sure you stay under the shade. That doesn’t just keep you cool and away from the sun’s heat, it also helps your paints last longer. They dry up faster if exposed to too much heat.
Use Water Sparingly
If there’s humid air, which means your paints will be moist from that. As a result, you might not need to use as much water when you dilute the paints. Test that out before you use too much and end up ruining a batch of paints.
You want the layers of paints to dry much faster, so you can finish with the session much, much sooner as well. That tends to happen when it’s summertime. Using templates is also another way to cut down on the time it takes for you to finish the design. That helps since templates mean kids won’t need to wait too long before they can rush off with their painted faces.
Keep It Light
Too many layers could feel heavy on the skin. Stick to designs that allow for thin layers. That will not only make it easier for the skin to breathe, it also means you’ll finish faster, so the line can love. Light and simple designs are ideal during the summertime.
Load Up on Wipes
There’s nothing quite as versatile as wipes. They help you correct errors in the design. They also keep you and your models cool. Place one at your nape to cool down. If the heat is getting to you, wipes offer you an easy way to refresh yourself.
Use Waterproof Paint
When you shop around for face paint options, pick brands that offer waterproof choices. People tend to get sweaty when it’s summer. That means the paint might bleed together, which will ruin the design? Using waterproof paint is one way to keep that from happening.
Look for Best Quality Paints
Waterproof or not, though, make sure you choose only good quality paint. That will ensure that your clients won’t get any skin rashes or irritation. It’s already hard enough to deal with normal sweaty skin during the summer. But if you end up giving yourself or your clients skin rashes because of the poor quality of the paints you chose, that’s going to add to more summer skin painting problems. Eliminate all that trouble. Choose your painting supplies wisely.
Another way to get more insight into the product is to go over consumer reviews. Read product features and feedback. That will tell you whether you’re shopping for the right items or if you need to check out other supply brands.
