Subject:        Cosmetics for Actors

At WT 4.4.99-103, Perdita says of "nature's bastards," the gillyvor,

                                    I'll not put
     The dibble in earth to set one slip of them,
     No more than, were I painted, I would wish
     This youth should say 'twere well, and only therefore
     Desire to breed by me.

Question: was the boy actor who played Perdita "painted" indeed?
