Drapeau’s Costumes of Maine, LLC will host Fletcher Face Art and Temporary Airbrush Tattoo of Rockland Saturdays, Oct. 23 and 30 to offer professional face painting at the costume store. Beginning at noon “until we’re done,” adults and kids can enjoy sporting the scariest, most fun and/or beautiful face art.

Some masks obstruct a child’s ability to see, particularly at dusk and trick-or-treating time. When faces are painted, however, children are safest when crossing streets, walking in the dark and climbing stairs to trick-or-treat.

Drapeau’s offers professional face painting supplies, and Fletcher Face Art uses the best theatrical face paints on the market including Mehron, Snazaroo and Wolfe Brothers. Produced in the United Kingdom and the United States, all Fletcher Face Art paints are 100 percent FDA approved, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. It is the same body paint used on Broadway and in Hollywood.

These paints stay vibrant; dry in approximately five minutes; and do not crack, itch or rub off, yet they can be removed with just mild soap and water. Fletcher Face Art and Airbrush Tattoo are available for all special occasions and fundraisers, whether for children or adults. The artists were visited by fans during the Alewive Fish Ladder Festival in Newcastle, the Pirate Rendezvous in Damariscotta and at numerous summer fairs in Union, Windsor, Oxford, Cumberland and Fryeburg.

Kim Fletcher of Fletcher Face Art holds a master of fine arts degree in theater and has been a theatrical and fantastical makeup artist for more than 25 years. She and husband Geary Smith live in Rockland; Fletcher is the associate editor of The Lincoln County News in Newcastle.
