Finally sharing some photos...

Post by Bast on Sun Apr 15, 2012 8:27 am

I am still new to face painting. Ive been painting for a few friends parties and I have regular work at 2 quiet markets, trying to get as much practice in as possible. It's taken me ages to work up the courage to share photos here, everyone is sooooo talented.

I would love to have some helpful feed back. I am getting lots of lovely comments from my friends and the parents at the markets, but to be honest what they are comparing me to sets the bar pretty low most of the time. Most people who paint around my area are either really really good or really really not lol.

He wanted a rainbow spiderman, was so happy when he looked in the mirror.


My little girl, letting me paint what I want for a change lol, I really wanted to try out my new rainbow cake.


Fairy, I still have no idea what to do for these, I got the idea from LJY and let the child pick a flower/heart/star for the centre.

Welcome! It looks like you're off to an awesome start! Your sponging looks great. Some of your line work could use a lighter touch, but that just takes more practice. Smile

Awesome for your first festival! on spidey, don't sponge his mouth and chin area. try to keep the sponged area where you are putting the spidey web. less time, saves paint. their mouths don't get messy after they eat or drink.

I personally prefer using starbends for my spiderman for boys.... makes them sit still if they aren't squirming around over wet paint around their eyes.

Just keep practicing your line work and teardrops. That's the make or break area.

When in doubt... just add glitter, lol.

Great start! You have nothing at all to be nervous about! We all started somewhere. I was scared to post pics, too! But I've gone back very far on this forum and seen the growth of great artists, and lost my nerves. We have all grown and learned from each other, which is why it is so important to me.
