    Sweden flag face paint? HELP!!!

    Hi all,

    We are having a sweden themed night tomorrow and usually i paint the country flag on those who want it.

    Much to my 19year old brothers disgust he was my test dummy.

    However it keeps going green when i attempt to paint it! Ive tried different ways to stop this to no joy.

    Does anyone have any ideas? My brother has got bored now so i cant try any more tonight!

    Steady hand, two brushes, and thicker paint. If nothing else, it should stop the stuff running together as easily =]

    Saw your post on FB.

    Are you letting the white dry first?

    How about a dust of talc between coats?

    Do you blot lipstick and use a dusting of powder to set? (or is that really, really old now!)

    It should help the bottom colour stay dry.

    Colour mix up - it's late.

    There is a spray that sets stage make-up for changes during a production, probably expensive and probably not easily available though.

    Why not cheat and paint their faces blue and stick on three yellow crowns. It isnt the flag but it is a common emblem over there.
