Skeleton face paint for Halloween
To paint the skull, first find a comfortable place to work and cover surfaces in case of spillages and mucky fingers. You might also want to drape an old towel around your child's shoulders to protect their clothes from any stray drips. Using a water-based face paint is best as they wash off easily with soap and water. Face paint is safe to use on most skin types but always do a patch test of the paint on the back of your child's hand. If there is no reaction in an hour or so it should be safe to use.
