My son is very keen on face paint and temporary tattoos. Ever since he had them removed before the start of school, he's been bugging me about it. But, I remember reading this article about unsafe face paints on the market. It's very discerning and it got me looking for natural alternatives. I came across a few recipes in The Green Beauty Guide and thought I'd give it a go!
|Started off with the powdery ingredients. Used 1/2 tsp.|
|Added a blob of aloe vera gel and mixed until|
I got a creamy consistency.
|Patch test! The cornstarch mixture cracked when dry. It might|
be good for Halloween.
|We tried to get an orange colour from the carrots but I think you can't use|
a pestle and mortar. You need a blender!!
|My son suggested using some butterleaf lettuce from my hydroponics.|
We got a nice green gel.
|We got to make blood from the red yeast rice. |
Doesn't it look real?
|This is what red yeast rice looks like.|
|He tried to be a tiger. If you're using cocoa, remind the kids not|
to eat it!!
Linking up with Friday 5 as I made five face paints!!
