HOW TO USE and Care for Your Professional Water-Activated Face and Body Paints
When using this product:
- DO NOT spray water directly onto face and body paint;

- For external use only;
- As advised on manufacturer's Material Safety Data Sheet it is recommended not to use on children under 3 years old;
