Fairies and mermaids... finally

Post by PaintedFaces on Mon Oct 29, 2012 7:13 am

I've been facepainting for a while now. At a gig on the weekend, where I was very happy with most of my work, there was a little girl who waited in line and then asked for a fairy. Not a fairy mask, but an actual 'person with wings' on her arm. I had to apologise and say, I can do dolphins and unicorns and all kinds of beautiful things, but I can't draw fairies, I'm sorry.

Today I got really annoyed with myself. There's no excuse! So, I sat down with a photo from the Winx club for inspiration (thank you TAG challenge Wink ) and the pic from the onestroke group on facebook where someone showed a mermaid with no arms (thank you who ever you were!) and taught myself these.

I'm quite pleased and now will never be in that sad situation again.

I know right? LOL.

Arms and legs... or more specifically, hands and feet are a real pain. Still can't draw those. I'll work on it but in the mean time, these will definitely do. Smile

Oh, those are SO sweet!!! I'm always at kindof a loss when it comes to fairies too. Although I do have a simple Tinkerbell I do. Those are just awesome, and I love the lack of arms too...a little girl would never notice with all the pretty, flowing hair!

Thanks everyone! Smile

MissHeidi, It's a Kryolan light flesh tone. Unfortunately I threw the pack away a long time ago and dumped it in with my brown. I'm sorry.

I love it! Looks hard but pretty easy to do. I have the hardest time painting fairies as well but I love what you did.

Gorgeous! And I'm sure it was Lisa Marie MacKinnon who did the armless mermaid on the FB one stroke page. I recently went to her workshop in Adelaide and learnt so much. She's a 1stroje genius!
