Format: Paperback
For ten years, I've been painting faces for carnivals, parties, Halloween - you name it - this book can take rank beginners and allow them to paint very professional looking faces. The instructions are easy to follow, and elaborate on multiple techniques, including sponging and using different brush tips to achieve different effects. I highly recommend it - a word of caution- use only high quality face paints as they cover and blend better than the cheapos! Enjoy!

This book was for my daughter-in-law who is a professional face painter. She uses it all the time, and it's one of her premier go-to books for large events.

The faces are easy to make but the looks are a bit weird. My children almost never pic a face from this book (I have 3 books overall).
Good luck

Excellent for any birthday party or special event. Simple enough for the beginner but also interesting full face designs. Great book.

great book for the price! Oct. 2 2006
By Brook Savage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I did the vampiress and japanese doll faces from this book on my daughter and friend. We made an errand to our local "clown store" and all the entertainers said how great they were. Those were just 2 of the fun face designs out of the book. The wicked reptile & colorful butterfly faces from this book are also very nice. There are over 40 faces!

Complex designs and not really appropiate for toddlers Dec 11 2010
By Gabriela Belan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this for my little girl cause she loves unicorns and butterflies face painting. I have a decent catalog but wanted some new ideas, so I bought this book. The designs are more Halloween like (scary) than your everyday jolly facepainting. I have not use it at all, I put it away for when my daughther is older in case she still likes facepainting.

Great starting point Jan. 21 2010
By mrs. dani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Generally speaking, ALL Usborne books are great. This one is no exception.

It is a great book to give you some great techniques. You learn step by step different kinds of faces and then you can use those ideas to create your own way of doing it. The publishers do not waste space giving you every possible example of a vampire or dog or whatever. You learn what you need quick & easy and then you make your own ideas work.

If you do not know how or have been out of practice (like me) or looking for some new ideas, this is a great book.
