Whats the best/safest paint for belly painting?

Trying to figure out good and safe brands and where to purchase them(craft stores?). Also, will the paint hold up if I do it at home then go to another location for pics? Any mamas with Belly paint experience or knowledge, please help Thanks!

I used the regular Crayola finger paints with my 3rd. I was going to do this with my last pregnancy: http://easiepeasie.blogspot.com/2010...er-paints.html

but didn't get around to it!

I use crayola washable paints with a few drops of shampoo added.

I think the seatbelt would be an issue trying to travel.

If you have to do that I'd get non-toxic acrylic paint (craft paint) and mix in a few drops shampoo. This si what we use for football games b/c it does not crack or peek easily and lasts for hours.

A non-toxic paint would be best. Many craft stores or smaller boutiques have belly paint available.

Thanks mamas, face paint is supposedly safest for skin when I searched online. I like the idea of crayola with shampoo. Seems like it would wash off easier. Still unsure of traveling. I want to take pics with the family and my pumpkin belly in a pumpkin patch that's 30 min. away. Maybe we'll just bring the paint along in case a touch up is necessary.

That is so cool! I wish I'd known for my belly, but at least it's an easy recipe we can use with our son. I remember loving finger painting when I was little!

We add shampoo to pretty much all paint that we want to wash off LOL It's a trick I learned when working in daycare. As soon as paint gets opened it gets a squirt of soap in it.
