    Have you been looking for Facepaint in Seaton, Devon? Well look no further, we have it at Devon Art Supplies 30 Queen Street, Seaton, Devon, EX12 2RB. 

    We are Snazaroo stockists, offering one of the top rated face paints in the UK (and possibly the world?) We have previously stocked other value brands but after research and customer feedback decided that they were not something that should be promoted and sold. Safety when Facepainting is important and so by stocking only Snazaroo we can be confident we are offering a well know and respected brand. 

    Snazaroo say: "Our paints are Water-based, easy to apply & easy to wash off
    Each 18ml pot paints approximately 100 faces. Snazaroo Face Paints are the World's favourite in face and body paint. All Snazaroo Face Paints are skin friendly, non-toxic & fragrance free but we do recommend you try a patch test before painting faces." 

    We offer individual pots of Facepaint and also party packs which give you a smaller portion of a range of colours and in some packs glitter too. 

    Other Snazoo products we stock include the fake blood for haloween and 3D gel.

    Have you seen the new Pastel Shades Paint Pan set from Derwent? 

    We have always loved the Derwent Watercolour pan sets, we already stock the graphitint, travel sets and metallic sets and this new pastel shades we just had to get in too.  

    Derwent describe this new set as "Soft refreshing coloured paints in pastel shades. Apply as a light wash or layer up for brighter finish" "Derwents uniquely formulated pastel shades paints are soft and light. They can be layered for brighter finish without dissolving previously dried layers. Alternativley these contempory light shades can be applied for a soft light wash or used with inktense and metallic sets to create dramatic effects. This compact self contained set contains 12 pastel pans a mini waterbrush, five mixing palettes and a sponge to clean your water brush" 

    We've seen these paints in action and have to say they are stunning, really beautiful effects can be created with this selection of colours. 

    You can order these via our website here or by coming to see us in store in our Seaton art shop, Devon Art Supplies, 30 Queen Street, Seaton, EX12 2RB.
