Why we Don't use acrylics to Paint Faces - Acrylic paint Skin Rash

photo from Washington DC Metro Area Face Painters on Facebook
This is a picture of a child who had a bad reaction to acrylic craft paints (non-toxic does not mean skin-safe!) on her cheek. She was painted by a church group using acrylics on skin. Washington DC Metro Area Face Painters on Facebook said this:

Terra Fender snapped this photo of the rash when the child was brought to her booth to get a "good" face painting from her. There just so happened to be a doctor in her booth getting his child painted. He noted that this was called "contact dermatitis" and that the reaction could have been much worse. You can see where she scratched the Ladybug design after it dried & got flaky. Imagine what her face would look like if the acrylic paint was on all day instead of a few minutes! Special thanks Terra for sharing this photo of what using craft paints can do. ~ Washington DC Metro Area Face Painters on facebook
