The Jest Plain Funny Contest

Kaci McCall from Mystical Rainbow Creations  won the Jest Plain Funny Contest. We had to sleep on the decision because there were a lot of really good entries that made us laugh out loud.  Kaci won $50 of face paint supplies from Jest Paint! You can see all the entries here

Thanks you to everyone who took the time to participate and got their entries in before the deadline. If you ever have problems sending or uploading pictures for future contests, please call us so we can help.  Keep your eyes open for our next contest.


New Products Demos

This is just a short post to let you know about 2 new products that we have in stock.

The first one is called Skinliner by Kryolan. They are face and body painting markers. Unlike others that we have seen around these are great quality! They are water based so they are not completely water proof. Watch the video and learn all about them!

The second product we added to our store is called Spin Cake! These are a variation of rainbow cakes that are becoming very popular in the Face Painting community. They are specially made to be used with dotter sponges or pouncers.  We have a couple of options available right now and we will add more options soon. Watch the video to learn more about them.

Here are some examples of fun designs made with Spin Cakes

Have fun painting and feel free to ask any questions you have about these and any other products at our store!!



Experimenting with StarBlend

Summer is here and we wanted to show you some options to make your face painting last longer.

Anna and I experimented with StarBlend and we found out that if you put a base of Paradise Coral or Paradise White (or any other Paradise color you want – or Kryolan color) before adding the StarBlend colors to the face, the powders will stay longer and colors will look much more vibrant than if you only use StarBlend by themselves.

Take a look at this funny video and leave us your comments!


Kryolan Arrived to Jest

YAHOOOOO!! Kryolan has arrived to!! We are mega over excited! Next to each color in the store we have also put a swatch so you can see the look of this wonderful paint on the skin.
The colors are just so vibrant and magical!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!! And the Glamour Sparks? OH my! They are just like little stars shining on your skin. And the Skinliners are perfect for drawing cheeck-art, or make perfect lines! or even temporary free hand tattoos! We will soon post some demos for you to see these new products in action. 🙂

Contest Guidelines and Rules

The contest will be run on our Facebook wall this time around.

You must post a photograph on Jest Paint’s Facebook wall. Your image must be funny and have something to do with face and body art (either the act of, the products or the end result).

We need to see that you actually uploaded your photo onto our wall, which is located at

As a comment to your photo, you must write “Jest Plain Funny”.

Only tagging Jest Paint’s Facebook page in one of your pictures, or sharing a picture on our wall does not count as a submission.

Each participant can only submit one entry.

Images submitted need to be in a decent size and quality in order to qualify. We want to laugh our Jest Pants off, so make sure your image isn’t blurry and the size of a playing card.

This contest is only for entrants 18 years of age or older. This is a free contest, no purchase is required to participate however, you have to “like” our Facebook page in order to participate.

This contest is open to anyone from anywhere with the exception of Jest Paint employees (so Anna, Santi and Chandra cannot participate). This is an online contest, so obviously you do not need to be physically present to win. Your image just needs to be on our wall.

Void where prohibited (I’d hate to live there).

This contest opens on July 7th, 2012    and closes on July 23rd, 2012. You must submit your entry before 11:59pm am EST on the closing day, so please submit early because your computer is bound to crash right when you try to click upload at the last minute. Jest Paint is not responsible for any problems or technical malfunctions of the Internet or any web site.

Once all entries have been received and reviewed by our panel of really interesting judges (Anna and Santi), the winner will be selected based on how funny their submission was and for keeping it face and body art related.

Now, we have had so many great entries in past contests that we were tempted to give out more than one prize, and were even asked to by some funny contestants, but sorry folks, there is only one winner and one prize for this contest, so aim as high as you can!

The winner will be contacted via their Facebook wall and Facebook e-mail  within 7 days after the contest’s closing date. The winner will have 7 days to respond back to the message to claim their prize. If we do not hear from the winner, we will a choose another winner. So keep your eyes peeled!

The prize will be a $50 e-gift card. The e-gift card is for purchases at Jest Paint, and cannot be swapped out for cash or a microwave or any other substitutions or assigned or transferred to another person. You have to spoil yourself!
