Hello from CA

Post by ChristmasMarie on Wed Sep 19, 2012 4:30 pm

I love art and have always had paper as my medium. Recently I have taken up face painting when a relative asked me to for a family event. I decided one day to pick up larger paint supplies from snazaroo. I had my first event at a town Octoberfest this last weekend and it went great. I hope to find many more events and maybe some birthday parties too. I havent tried any other brands besides snazaroo but am thinking of maybe wolfe for adults. Very Happy

Hi ChristmasMarie!

Pleased to meet you, and welcome to the forum.

I'm a complete newbie on the other side of the world - Scotland - but I love this forum and have already learned so much here. I love the dog in your avatar and have saved it to my inspiration folder...hope you don't mind. Laughing I have Snazaroo, Superstar (FAB in the US, I think) and a little Wolfe paint, and enjoy them all in different ways.

Look forward to reading more of your posts, and seeing more of your creations, in future. Good luck with your business!

Thanks Kammy. Its my son in the avatar I dont mind. Unfortunatly he is a little sick of being painted by now so I might be practicing on myself which I have such a hard time doing. I have thought about buying a practice head too.

Welcome to the Forum!
I have replaced my entire family with a practice head. I don't think they have noticed they have been replaced.

ChrismasMarie,
Thanks for answering my question. You sure got nice coverage with the Snaz.

You didn't put what part of California you are from...Are you from Northern or Southern California?...just wondering since I am originally from California. cat
