|Supplies purchased from a drugstore for sanitizing|
We're doing face painting for a "creative altruism" exercise for my creativity class. Do you have any advice as to how we can sterilize either the brushes or the faces? We're doing this in a few days, so it'll need to be inexpensive and easy to obtain.
I recommend using alcohol wipes for the faces (or isopropyl/rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or pad). For the brushes, if you use a slick "liquid" brush, soak it in an eye makeup remover (such as Beauty Without Cruelty or a similar version that helps remove oils) - this will clean it and remove traces of paint. Once the paint has been removed, the simplest thing for sanitizing is to dip it in alcohol between uses and dry on a clean tissue (or air dry) before painting again. And one common sense tip - remember to sanitize your hands between "clients." Hope you have a great face painting event!
