Wow, I have just discovered face painting!

Post by Mrs Cakeface on Sun Apr 29, 2012 3:42 am

Hi All,

I have just discovered the wonderful world of face painting. Don't get me wrong I have always known it has been around but after receiving tag facepaints for Christmas last year it has opened this wonderful creative world for me. I am having so much fun practicing on my daughters and they are delighted they can turn into new characters every day. Teaching myself new skills....thank God for You Tube and galleries. I can't tell you...well I suppose I can tell you how much joy and satisfaction I get from my new found pleasure.

I will definitely be seeking advice and how to do things faster, better and with a lot more skill.

Yay for face painting. Very Happy

Thank you all. Hooked is a good way to describe what I am going through at the moment. Getting better at the basics is what I would like to focus on.

Although I have figured out that facepainting can be very forgiving my lines, sponging and blending definitely have to improve. I see fantastic facepainting and wonder how on earth they didn't smudge there work, or there lines are so delicate, precise or just even or their blending is so well.......blended! Besides their years of experience and loads of unfair creative talent how do I get to be that good. So I decided start with good basics right from the beginning.

I noticed that when I have sponged over my daughter eyelids that after a while (and she has blinked a few times) the paint can flake off. Have I used to much paint? What am I doing wrong and how do I do it better?
