Some questions about alcohol-based face paint
So I just got some Dips face paint, and the stuff seems to work just as advertised, being heavily water-resistant. Even running warm water over it and trying to scrub it off, it barely budged!
I do have some questions about it, though. All of the video guides say that this stuff is supposed to be used for linework and details, but I'm planning on coating my whole face with it, just a single layer of solid color, and then adding a few lines in another color. Would that be okay?
Also, they say to use liquid soap to remove it, but the liquid soap I have does not have alcohol in it, so it doesn't remove the paint. Is it okay to just use rubbing alcohol to remove it? That's what I ended up doing when I tested it out, I just poured a bit of rubbing alcohol over the painted area and then scrubbed it off, it came off perfectly fine.
Also also, do I *have* to use alcohol when applying it? When I tried it out, I didn't use any alcohol, I just squirted a little bit into the plastic cup, ran my paintbrush through it, and painted it on like normal. I only ask because so many video guides mentioned "using alcohol to thin it out", and I don't really know if I *need* to do that, or not.
I do know that if it dries out, you use alcohol to re-activate it, but outside of that, do I need to use alcohol, or...?
