Amy Bee has been delighting children and adults with fabulous events for nearly 20 years. She started face painting for fun at Church and fundraising events in Virginia, and fell in love with the joy on children's faces after a few brush strokes and a little glitter. She was one of an award winning group of artists selected to paint each year at the International Children's Festival at Wolftrap Ampitheatre.
As face painting has evolved, she continues to adapt her tools, adding the latest techniques and designs to her repetoire. She actively participates in a guild to educate herself, and share her craft with other artists around the world.
Whether doing the standard Butterfly, Batman, Spiderman, Unicorn or Ladybug designs, or something more whimsical and unique, people are thrilled to see their faces transformed by face painting. For those who don't want their faces involved, arms, hands and even legs and ankles make a great canvas and appeal to adults and children alike.
Face painting is an art, and should only be attempted by someone who has the correct FDA approved paint and tools, as well as follows stringent hygiene and safety guidelines. Unfortunately, paints that are not specifically designed to be used on the skin can leave rashes and irritation. Even the paints sold in craft stores can be irritating to the skin, and cause a reaction.
How to remove face paint:
1) Remove what you can with a baby wipe. This will remove the majority of the paint.
2) Use gentle soap and water to remove the rest of the paint.
3) If outlines remain (black is the most difficult color to remove - I usually advise moms about batman before beginning to paint!), use baby oil or oil based lotion or cream to remove the rest of the paint. Vaseline works, too!
