Face Painting Tips 4

Keeping your subject still

Taster tips from Hazel’s Face Painting Course

When painting, place your free hand on top of the child’s head. This will steady them, particularly if they are young and wriggly! Some painters like to hold the chin, but holding the head enables you to swivel their head to whichever position you want for easier painting. Tell smaller children to sit up (some have a tendency to lean further and further back away from you!) and ask them to put their hands on their knees. This relaxes the shoulders and helps them to sit up straight.
