What is this Spectrum painting palette best for?
The incredible Leanne Courtney designed two amazing palettes for
Fusion Body Art, and now you can get both sets of cakes in one easy to
transport palette at a great price. This Fusion Tropical and Butterfly
Palette is perfect for all the color lovers of the world! You can paint
all sorts of tropical and colorful inspired designs that will pop like
crazy and even glow under black light (not all colors in this palette
glow under black light). No need to try to find the perfect color combo
for your next gig, you have them all here in this beautifully designed
painting palette. Take them a Rave and be the center of attention
wearing these glowing colors. Each cake is shorter, shallower and wider
than the original Small Spectrum Cakes. Fusion neon paints will not glow
in complete darkness, they need to be exposed to black lights to glow,
LED black lights will give you the strongest effect. Although artists
around the world use these paints to produce amazing face and body art
designs, the USA FDA has yet to test these pigments for skin safety so
in the USA we are forced to indicate that these paints are only to be
used as a special effects products to paint over clothing, prosthethics
and other surfaces. Fusion Body Art has conducted private testings by
specialized labs to determine that these products are indeed safe to be
used on the skin, but regulations in the USA still require for us to
indicate that they are not to be used on the skin. Please know that the
FDA usually doesn't test a pigment for safety unless it feels there is a
public concern over the safety of the pigment. As an example, even
though henna and tattoo inks are widely used, the FDA has not yet tested
them for skin use, meaning that they are in the same situation as neon
"face" paints. Based on current regulations any off label use is at the
How to apply and remove the
paint in this Fusion Body Art and FX Spectrum Palette - Tropical and
Buttefly Collection by Leanne Courtney?
Water is the magic tool to activate Fusion Body Art and FX paints. We
recommend that painters or parents apply water to their painting brush
or sponge and then load the paint onto their tool, rather than spraying
the paints with a misting bottle. Spraying might lead to an over
absorption of water into your paint cake, which means soft, sticky paint
that is harder to use. Load a moist sponge or a flat or angular brush
(1" to 3/4" if you want to pick up all of the colors) by sweeping from
side to side across the Spectrum Cake using a small amount of water to
moisten your paint until you have created a smooth light creamy paste,
wipe any excess paint off of your sponge or brush on the edge of the
container and apply. Choose a sponge or brush size based on how many
colors you want to pick up. Hold the cake vertically so that any
dripping paint will run down the color of the stripe, and not across the
whole rainbow. Put just the tiny tip of your brush back in your water
cup if you need to add more water. You want the paint to be fully
loaded, appearing wet and shiny, but not drippy. Make sure that your
brush is lined up with the correct colors when you reload. Rinse and
repeat if colors start to get too mixed. Do you really want to wash this
off? You can easily remove Fusion Body Art and FX paints with soap and
water from most surfaces; simply lather the surface with soap using a
soft sponge or wash cloth, rub the paint gently until it looks like all
of it has been loosened from the painted area and then rinse with water;
repeat as needed.
How to store Fusion Body Art and FX painting products?
All Fusion Body Art and FX cakes should be stored in a dry and cool
place away from a direct source of light. This means, don't store your
paints in a damp basement, a hot or frigid car, or anywhere that might
lead to a paint meltdown or stone cold cake. Even while you are working,
make sure to keep you paints out of direct sunlight or humid locations.
Painters should let their paint air dry by leaving the lids off between
uses until dry, or store the paint in a case that allows you to
transport your cakes without having to lid them. Do not store your paint
in a refrigerator since it can get contaminated with food allergens and
odors. When cleaning the surface of your paints, avoid using any fuzzy
cloths or chemical products; a clean damp painting sponge is all you
need to wipe the surface clean. Applying other chemicals like makeup
sanitizers, baby wipes that contain perfumes, etc. can alter the
chemical composition of your paints and stuff like towel and wet-wipe
fuzz might get embedded in your paints. We do not recommend speed drying
your paints by putting them into a microwave, which could destroy them.
Instead consider using a food dehydrator, or setting your cakes near a
space heater or over a bed of rice (without the paint touching the
rice), so that the extra moisture can evaporate or be absorbed. Feel
free to visit our Jest Paint blog for more detailed instructions on how
to paint and what kind of products to use for each occasion. Remember,
pearl face paints are softer than prime matte colors, so even when brand
new, the consistency won't be the same as with your regular colors.
What else should I know about Fusion Body Art and FX paints?
Neon colors, like in other brands, are made with pigments that have
not been approved by the FDA to be used on cosmetics (the FDA has not
tested them yet for cosmetic use) but they have been independently
tested and have been determined safe for cosmetic use by independent
laboratories. All Fusion Body Art Prime and Pearl colors are made with
US FDA and EU compliant high-quality ingredients and are hypoallergenic.
They contain no perfume, parabens or lanolin to reduce the risk of
allergic reactions. Fusion Body Art face paints are vegan and they are
not tested on animals. Fusion Body Art paints are manufactured in China
under the direction and strict supervision of the Fusion Body Art team
in Australia, using a formula designed by Fusion Body Art with
ingredients sourced and provided by Fusion Body Art. All pigments for
Prime colors are made in the USA, as well as all FD&C and D&C
pigments used on the Pearl range, which guarantees the use of only the
safest and highest quality pigments in the production of Fusion Body Art
face paints. The paraffin wax used on Fusion's Paraffin White and
Pearls is one of the finest Japanese waxes available in the market for
cosmetic use. Fusion Body Art makeup products are great for your cosplay
characters, Halloween costume parties, carnivals, fundraisers and more.
Like all face paint brands, due to changes in environmental temperature
and moisture levels, the paint can expand and contract inside the
container creating cracks on the surface of the cake, and possibly cause
the cake to shrink a bit in its container. This does not affect the
performance of the product and cracks will seal by themselves once you
start using it. Depending on the specific binders and pigments used and
the environmental conditions, the consistency of the product can vary
from hard and dry to soft and clay like. Either way, you will still be
able to paint perfectly with your cakes.
