Hello from Australia, and a happy festive season!

Post by Acanthus on Tue Dec 25, 2012 7:38 am

Hi all! I'm Siobhan, from Melbourne. I've been painting my long-suffering 7yo's face for a few months now occasionally. I started with a set of liquid face paints from a local art shop, but ran into limitations (i.e., my kid crying with disappointment that I couldn't do the perfect rainbows "like the painter at the Zoo, mama..."). Very Happy

I was enjoying it so much (crying aside) that my lovely chap bought me some proper sponges, brushes, split cakes and a better white for Christmas. I've just opened them up and now I have an arm full of practice teardrops, 5-petalled flowers, a rainbow snake, a unicorn's head (a la Lisa Joy Young's pegasus tute on youtube), and even some attempts at roses.

IT'S SO MUCH BETTER with proper materials. Yay! Very Happy

Anyway, I look forward to learning heaps from you all, and I hope you've all had a happy and safe holiday season.
