One of the best parts about being a face painter is we don’t have to wait for a holiday to add color, fun and creativity to a party. When the Holidays do come around, its double the fun and its easier to go all out because we are built for it.
12 years ago, when we began making Rainbow cakes we knew Holidays cakes were at the top of the list. We designed Christmas Rainbow cakes, Valentines cakes, St Patrick’s and couldn’t forget 4th of July! Out of all the Holidays, Patriotic face painting is the most popular with all age ranges. Dad’s love USA flag tattoos, moms love red, white and blue eye bling and kids can’t get enough of the popular flag face.
When we launched the FaceFUN kits, we put together an awesome 4th of July Kit that includes a Patriotic rainbow cake, stencils, a brush, glitter and a sponge. Fast fun, a festive face painting has never been so easy! So if you are looking for a kit to face paint at a school, a 4th of July party, or just want to practice your 4th of July options this is a great kit for you!
4th of July Rainbow and Arty Cakes make red, white and shades of blue face painting awesome and easy! Whether you are painting quick eye sparks or a USA flag bandana using a cake is the way to go. With one swipe of your brush or sponge, you can create full face designs in no time. Cakes also take the mess and fuss away from laying down primary colors next to each other. Before the invention of Rainbow and arty cakes, when creating red, white and blue designs, you would paint each color individually and run the risk of blue and red bleeding and your design turning a nice shade of purple brown. Rainbow and Arty’s take away that work, and give you more time to get creative with your line work and glitter obsession.
Every face painter has that one design they hate to draw. For us, there were several designs like Mermaids, Flags and Eagles… and from that frustration, we designed Pink Power stencils. Pink Power stencils are made of mylar ( plastic) and can be used hundreds of times. Each design is sized perfectly for the cheek and arms. Pink Power stencils can also be used with your airbrush, making them one of the most useful tools in your kit. Each year we launch new designs, and we couldn’t resist adding a 4th of July collection including a Heart Flag, Fireworks and Eagle.
Glitter is like fireworks for your face! Nothing shines bright quite like the bling from Pixie paint and Face Painting glitters. By popular demand, Amerikan Body Art created a special 4th of July Pixie Paint blend and it changed the holiday for us. Most 4th of July public events are packed and lines are longer than at Disney. Having a red, white and blue mix Pixie Paint makes BLING eyes fast, easy and festive. Bling eyes are also a great design choice to offer mothers to match their children in the 4th of July fun! In addition to Pixie Paint special blend, there are also individual red, white and Blue pixie and
festival glitters and let’s not forget the world Famous Mama Clown Glitter. Mama Clown’s glitter is a cosmetic glitter that can be used on any design to add that extra special sparkle.
Pink Power stencils are your short cut to painting cheek art in a jiffy, where NEW Ooh stencils are your short cut to adding AWESOME accents to every type of designs. The unique shape of the Ooh stencils allows you to move them all over the face and body to add the OOH AHH factor. When , we first received the OOh samples we were thinking OK cool another fun stencil. But it wasn’t until we started to use them that we fell in love. They are super easy to use, the designs are well thought out and sized to make them the perfect icing on the cake for every type of design. Our personal favorites are the stars because they embellish all sorts of designs and transform every design into a Patriotic masterpiece.
Summer is usually HOT HOT HOT and can be a pain for face painters. The great news is that Glitter tattoos are a sparkling alternative to face painting. Not only are they fast, they are waterproof, sweat proof and we have a wide selection of 4th of July stencils. Glitter Tattoos are also a GREAT way to up sell your events or add a fun service to your booth. They are easy enough to train an assistant to do, and they are impressive because they can last 3-5 days.
