Kryolan has an amazing range of face and body art products as well as special effects products and tools of the trade made in Germany and the USA. Kryolan Aqua Color regular face painting colors are incredibly easy to blend and remain bendable for a few minutes. Their standard colors are bold and vibrant and their creamy consistency allows for a good and easy coverage. Kryolan Metallic Colors look like real metal! They can make all of your face painting dreams come true. Kryolan range of Inference colors are more sheer and provide a gentle opalescent effect. Last but not least, Kryolancolors are vibrant under regular light and glow under black light. These special effects paints are great for black light parties and haunted houses! One thing to keep in mind is that Kryolan face paints tend to never completely dry to the touch.
Interferenze/ UV/ Metallic and Regular colors are all in the same sized container and pretty much filled up to the top, though they have different weights on their labels due to different densities of the paint.

HOW TO ACTIVATE KRYOLAN PRO PAINT FACE PAINTS?
In order to activate Kryolan face paints, use a damped face painting sponge or face painting brush. First, get your sponge or brush slightly wet, make sure to remove any excess water before activating the face paint. Then, rub the brush or sponge against the face paint cake in order to activate the paint. Make sure to keep rubbing back and forward until the paint has a creamy consistency. If you are using a face painting brush for line work you can also go for a more ink like consistency. If you have too much water on the cake keep rubbing the sponge or brush in order to work that water into the paint and get the right consistency. Keep in mind that Kryolan face paints are better suited for base work since their creamy consistency is not ideal for line work. Their metallic face painting colors require for you to work with a more creamy like consistency and might need more than one coat to get full opacity.
HOW TO APPLY KRYOLAN FACE PAINTS SOLID COLORS?
Once you have your preferred applicator loaded with face paint, then apply it to the skin. If you are using a sponge make sure to apply the face paint using a patting motion rather than swiping your sponge. Patting gently and consistently gives you a much smoother and opaque base than swiping your sponge. We recommend to use face painting sponges when applying a base coat.
When working with brushes simply lay the face painting brush against the skin and move in the desired direction. Make sure to keep a steady firm hand to have good control over your brush.
HOW TO REMOVE KRYOLAN AQUA COLOR FACE PAINTS?
Kryolan face paints can be removed easily with just soap and water. You can use a soft sponge or cloth to aid in the removal process. Always start by coating the skin with a thin layer of soap. Once you have worked the soap into the face paint, then proceed to rinse. You might need to repeat this process a few times. Always make sure to be gentle, excessive rubbing of your skin can cause irritation. Also, we suggest not to use scented baby wipes since the perfume can cause allergic reactions. If any stains are left on the skin, consider using lotion. You might need to let the lotion set in for a few minutes before wiping it off. In the rare case in which a stain is still visible after this process, please wait for 24 hours before attempting to wash off the area again. Normal sweating and oil production from your skin will aid in the removal process, as well as rubbing against your sheets while you sleep.
All face paints can stain since it depends mostly on your skin type. If you are concerned, always try a small patch of the color on the area to be painted and test for stains 30 minutes after. If the color does leave a stain, you might want to consider using a different color if that concerns you.
To remove the paint off your face painting brushes and sponges, we recommend using a brush soap like the Pink Soap by Mona Liza. These soaps are designed to remove oils and pigments off your tools and will do a much better job than regular hand soap. Once your tools have been washed off and throughly rinsed to remove all traces of soap, let them dry out completely before storing them.
HOW TO STORE KRYOLAN AQUA COLOR FACE PAINTS?
Like with all cosmetic products, it is always best to keep Graftobian face paints away from a direct light source and in a cool and dry environment. Excessive heat can make your face paints really soft, and excessive light can fade the colors on the outer layers of your cake. An excess of humidity can cause mold to grow and spoil your face paints.
Before putting your face paints away after you used them, make sure to wipe the top clean using a clean sponge (do not use baby wipes since they will leave a fuzzy layer on your cakes), let them dry out with the lids open and then proceed to put the lids back on and store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. You can use laptop cases to keep light away from your cakes.
SAFETY AND COMPLIANCE INFORMATION
All Kryolan regular, metallic and Inference face painting colors have been formulated with FDA approved pigments for cosmetic application. All neon colors are considered a special effects product and do not comply with FDA cosmetic regulations although they have been independently tested for skin safety and have been determined safe to be used on the skin by independent laboratories, according to the manufacturer. Neon colors contain pigments that have not yet been tested by the US FDA to be used on cosmetics. They are considered safe for skin by other countries.
Like all cosmetic products, face paints can cause an allergic reaction if the individual is allergic to any of its components. Although Kryolan face paints have been formulated with special ingredients to reduce the chances of an allergic reaction, an allergy free experience can not be guaranteed by any manufacturer. The manufacturer recommends that this product should not be applied to broken or sensitive skin. Test by placing a small amount to the wrist, if reaction occurs within 30 minutes do not use.
Please know that in the US the FDA does not recommend the use of purple, red blue and green makeup colors near the eyes or lips area, regardless of the brand. Use within 18 months of opening the package. Unsuitable for children under 36 months due to small parts which may cause chocking (this is related to the kids manipulating the product, not regarding kids being painted).
Kryolan Aqua colors are certified "Allergy Friendly and Quality Tested" by ECARF.
GMO, GLUTEN, PARABENS, NUTS AND VEGAN CONCERNS
These face paints contain carmine as a color additive so they might not be considered vegan. Also, they do have parabens as a preservative, which is a widely used preservative in the makeup industry.
