Metallic blue face/body paint
Hey all,

I was wondering if a metallic blue face/body paint existed. I tried looking for PAX but couldn't find any. I am looking for something similar to the blue used on my Carmine helmet.



Thanks in advance

First things first, I have no experience with body paints myself so this is purely speculation from looking online. How effective it will actually be I'm not sure but there looks like 3 main options.

Snazaroo seem to have a metallic range:

Diamond FX has a range:

(Colour can be seen here:

Or you can buy metallic dust to add to paint after applied like mentioned half way down this website:

Sorry it's an american site.

I hope that gives you some ideas, sorry I couldn't find an exact one :S

Thanks very much, that's really helpful. The colour above was just a general guide. It didn't need to be that colour. The Metallic baby blue looks like what I would want.

Thanks again!

Just as a note, PAX paint isn't generally available premixed. It's a term for acrylic paints mixed with the makeup adhesive Prosaide, so you can mix your own with whichever acrylic paint suits your purpose.

Ahhh Odangochan, always very helpful I had completely forgotten this but I did know it in the past. Thanks for the advice. This cosplay has been put on the back burner now but it's all good to know.

Thanks, Raye-chan always good to have recommendations from people that have used them.
