Awhile back we sold individual DFX split cakes and a set of Paradise Split cakes. A ton of people wanted more splits, but we just did’t have the time to make them. Some customers were also asking about getting TAG in 45g containers, but TAG doesn’t produce 45s. And on top of that we got requests for solid colors in the 50 gram rectangular containers that rainbow cakes were coming in.
After a lot of thought, Santi and I just went off and asked TAG to produce a bunch of 2 color split cakes for us in the 50 Gram rectangular containers. And then we thought, these containers are so space saving, maybe it would be awesome to have tons of the colors in these containers too! Well, we have a lot of new products that you can go check out at http://www.jestpaint.com and dream about what these containers might do for your kit. They have only been up for a day, and they are selling fast! Thanks to everyone who gave input about how we could improve the face painting products that are out there! Please keep us up to date on your dreams! It is always exciting to bring new products to the market, and offer more options for everyone!
We also ordered a bunch of TAG’s new Split Cakes….a fantastic pearl one for girls, some mega bright ones, and another amazing pearl triple split.
TAG also came out with TWO NEW pearl colors… Pearl TEAL and Pearl Wine! I had to have both of them in my kit and they are MEGA AMAZING!!! Check out the pics below. You can see the Pearl Wine in all it’s glory on my lips and blended in with the Teal on my butterfly wings. The center of the cat face is the Pearl Teal and reg white…and the outer edges are shaded with our JestPaint Metallic Aqua Blue. The shimmer factor of the Teal is long lasting and very opaque and jaw dropping. 🙂 lol
If you want to see how these two colors compare to other colors out there, please check the following links:
NOTE: We sold out of our initial batch of Split Cakes, and we are not producing anymore until we come up with a better game plan. We found that many colors were very brittle for splitting, leading to damaged cakes, and some took months and months to sell. Comment below about combos you would like to see in our store. If we can come up with a fool proof way to cut them, and make combos that would be high in demand, we will start making them again.
We just added Split Cakes to JestPaint.com. I have seen a lot of face painters have these in their kits when I go to jams. Those that have them love them for at least three reasons.
If you want to pack small, but play big, having two colors in each container is a really great way to maximize space in your kit. Split cakes let you use a brush or a sponge to easily and quickly load two tones of one color, or two popular color combinations together. Once your tool is loaded the colors come out nicely blended on the skin.

If you don’t face paint like crazy it also will save you money because you buy more colors in less cakes. The 32’s and 45’s are half as expensive per gram than the 10g refill cups of Diamond Fx. With split cakes you get smaller amounts of each color but at a very good price!
When I do butterflies I use split cakes to have the lighter color close to the eye and the darker color on the edge. The Neon Pink and Violet Split cake is an awesome choice for those! For tigers or cheetahs I keep the yellow in the center of the face and the orange out on the edges. With monsters and skulls I keep the lighter color on the most protuding parts of the bones, and the darker color shades the bones. I save so much time using these cakes that I can paint full faces in about 2 minutes flat.
