It’s almost time to dress the little goblins for school parties, church activities, neighborhood trick-or-treating and more! Most places say “no masks” and parents turn to face paints to complete the costume.
Just one problem- most paints are made in China and contain lead. (sigh)
You can EASILY make it yourself, it cleans off well and is lead free!!! We have shared this recipe at Tupperware parties for over 20 years – enjoy!
Face and Body Paint
2 Tbls Solid Shortening (think Crisco)
1 Tbls Cornstarch
4-5 drops food coloring
Small make-up sponges
I do it in a microwave save dish – zapping 10-15 seconds at a time and removing to stir.
Mix shortening and cornstarch until smooth. Add food coloring. Cool before using – it keeps for up to 3 months, sealed in Tupperware (think Snack Cups or Midgets)!
Use soap and water to remove.
