Hello from MA!

Post by lgravito82 on Tue Jul 24, 2012 10:43 am

Hi Everyone,

So I'm new at the blogging and forums, so please bare with me. My name is Leslie. I've been looking around the website for a while now but this is the first time I'm writing!

I have been face painting for fun for about 13 years now. I started with cheek art at my high school's art fair, my nieces and nephews birthday parties, and even recently, I did the cheek art for 2 friends who paid me for it. After those 2 parties, I realized that I really LOVE doing this! But I wanted to do more than just cheek art. So, I started watching video after video about technique and designs. I've practiced and practiced and practiced on myself and on my family members (poor things)! I'm finally at the point now that I am comfortable to go out and do events for the public.

But I have to admit, getting the business started has been difficult! So far I have 2 birthday parties and an event at a college, but that's it. So if any of you can give me some tips as to how to get hired, I'm all ears!!

Thanks everyone! Hope to talk to you all soon!
Leslie

Welcome to the Forum!
I replaced my family with a practice head from Wimex (great suggestion from Shannon Fennell!... Um, that didn't come out right... Shannon Fennell did NOT suggest I replace my family with Wimex heads.... Shannon suggested Wimex if I wanted a practice head.) Going to stop talking now.

Thank you!
Hahaha!!! I actually have a head from wimex and I'm not crazy about using. It's just not the same.

Sorry it took me so long to reply! Embarassed I'm in the Springfield area. I feel your pain, I'm having a heck of a time starting up too! I'm hoping once fall swings around again some calls will start!
