From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-- Step-by-step techniques for creating over 30 face-painting designs with additional instructions for making accessories to complete the costumes. This book is directed at adult or artistically talented, mature audiences. Even though children will enjoy browsing through these full-page, full-color photographs to choose the look they want, it is doubtful that they will be able to accomplish even the simplest of these effects alone. On the other hand, it is an excellent source of ideas for school carnivals and fairs. The text (which does not cite an author) stresses that young children can usually sit still for a maximum of five minutes and that many are nervous about face-painting and need reassurance along the way. It offers advice about crowd control and setting up workshops to teach others the skills. Proper cautions are provided. A word of wisdom when attempting these attractive designs--plan on more than five minutes per face--especially if you need to allow a base color to dry before applying the second coat. A useful title to have on hand for Halloween and carnival time. --Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
