Preparing the face
Pure Poppet stocks only all natural, non toxic products that are free from all the nasty chemicals found in other face paint products. It is still advisable to test a small amount on a patch of skin to check that there are no allergy issues before you get creative. Read all about the natural ingredients found in Pure Poppet products here. Once you’ve done a patch test, simply make sure the skin is clean and dry before applying face paint.
Applying with a brush
To use Pure Poppet face paints, tap out a little of the mineral powder into a small dish. Place a face paint stencil on the face. Dip the brush into a little water and use the wet brush to mix around the powder and create a smooth paint. Try to hold the stencil as still as possible to get the best result.

Applying with a sponge
You can use a sponge applicator to wipe over the stencil for a simple no-mess application method. Prepare the mineral powder by tapping out a little into a dish. Dip the sponge into some water and squeeze out any excess. Then, use the sponge to stir the powder into paint. Hold the face paint stencil on the area you wish to paint and carefully dab the sponge over the stencil until you fill the area with colour.

Using multiple stencils to create one design
Our natural face paint packs come with a choice of either three face paint stencil designs or three stencils that can be used together to form one design. Carefully apply each of the stencils to each area of the face, being careful not to rub off already prepared areas.
There is no need to be afraid of face painting at home, using natural and safe products. Now you can be the artist, and impress your kids with easy, practical and fun face painting stencils.
