Keep your energy positive and loving. Stay confident. Be someone people want at their party. I have booked flat rate jobs so I can take my time and experiement and I have painted at BBQ's with over 400 kids in attendance. People complain sometimes but they certainly wait and pay. Don't let your expectations limit you, and know when to stop. You have permission to go out there and charge for your work, but be as professional and happy as you can be. If not you then who?

Three colours and a couple of lines... I think. He had to use a minumum of three colours per face and enough detail to be "recognizable".... I do not think neatness counted....

Maybe that's why there was no photo of the 'art work' in the Guiness book...?
