    How to create the superhero face paint

    Before you start…

    • Gather your materials on a flat surface
    • Lay down some newspaper or a wipe-clean cloth in case of any spills
    • Always do a patch test of the paint on your child’s skin, if no reaction occurs within an hour, the paint should be safe to use
    • Remove gently with warm water and a damp cloth – no need to rub!
