I can’t be the only one that has a stash of face painting kits in the house that only see the light of day once a year during the annual World Book Day costume panic, can I? Then Snazaroo sent me one of their new Brush Pens face painting kits… and it’s a game changer!
The new Snazaroo Brush Pens are just like a make-up concealer or highlighter pen – each colour has a simple pen with a brush nib and you twist the bottom of the pen to add more face paint to the brush. No water. No sponges. No fuss. They’re quick and easy to use. Now if someone asks for face paints on a rainy Saturday afternoon I find myself saying “Yes,” instead of “Look! Over there… a flying pig”.
The new Snazaroo Brush Pens come in 12 different colours. We were sent the Jungle pack containing yellow, brown and green face paints, which is perfect for creating a Tiger Who Came To Tea costume for Mr 3.
The pens are very easy to use. You simply twist the bottom of the brush pen a few times and the brush begins to load with the colour of the face paints. Then you can get to work. I started with the yellow brush pen and used a series of strokes to build up a base, going along the jawline and across the forehead.
The face paint dries very quickly, so I could move straight on to adding detail with the brown Snazaroo Brush Pen. I added strokes for the stripes and then a little brown nose. The brush is a great size as you can cover large areas quickly but it’s also small enough to allow you to add details.
Add a tiger onesie for an easy The Tiger Who Came To Tea costume!
I’m really impressed with the Snazaroo Brush Pens – they really do make face painting easy. They’re simple to apply and they wash off with soap and water. Now we get the face painting kits out a lot more and it’s a great activity to keep little ones busy on a rainy day.
The Snazaroo Brush Pens are so easy to use that the kids can even help themselves and have a go at painting on their own designs. It’s a fun way to encourage their creativity and there’s hardly any mess – watch out if you load the brush with too much paint as it can drip, but this is easily wiped up.
In just a few weeks we’ve used face paints more than we did in the whole of last year! The Snazaroo Brush Pens come in packs of three… choose from Jungle, Fantasy, Adventure, Halloween or Monochrome.
