Does it make me a sicko if I order $300 worth of face paint when I don't have ANY gigs lined up??

Post by Facepainting by Tina on Fri Jan 04, 2013 3:11 pm

I'm having buyer's remorse and I haven't even done it yet lol. Does this mean I've officially gone over the deep end if I actually order that much paint??? It's enough paint that I should be able to recreate EVERY one stroke sold here at FPF shop because I just can't choose between them all....this makes me sick doesn't it?? Suspect

That's been my course of action, but while I've been holding off saying to myself (I do NOT have $300 to buy them anyhow) and then I checked the mail today and a bride sent me a check for $309 to finish paying for her wedding cake lol...decisions, decisions! I really should probably try to tame it down to $150 but how can I choose?? lol

Dear Tina:
If you build it...
They will come.
("Field of Dreams" reference).
I am with anniel's philosophy regarding shipping.
I am also a FacePaintaholic.
If you are truly worried, post the items on the Forum, to see if others have any suggestions. Take whatever we say with a grain of salt. The reason that there are so many different types of paint is because there are different types of painter preferences.

Happy Painting!

Also:
I loathe the smell of Paradise paint.
I feel ill when working with it.
Yet,
I am ordering it NOW,
for body painting in October 2013 in Key West.
That will allow me enough time to let the paint air out to reduce the aroma.
I do not have any bookings, yet.

You guys crack me up!! I just put the check in the bank (yes at 9pm) so I am placing the order!! I think I ordered all TAG with the exception of a couple BIG containers of wolfe black and white (can't have too much of those, and since I'm already paying the whole $6 for shipping......) lol

Will have to post a pic of my haul....this is going to be a rediculous amount of paint!

That's my girl!
You missed ordering Mehron Mixing Liquid. You CAN mix it with vegetable oil, but the model cannot sit down for 3-6 hours to avoid smudging.

You missed ordering one of each:
TAG Neon Magenta
TAG Neon Yellow
TAG Neon Blue

To make three TAG Carnival cakes.

Metina does NOT pay me or condone me to encourage fellow Paintoholics. I do this because I have an addiction.

what a heartwarming thread this is... Hello all, my name is Katrien and
I recently purchased here in Europe:
Superstar Aqua schmink 16 gram Zilver 56
Superstar Aqua schmink 16 gram Geel 044
Superstar Aqua schmink 16 gram Bordeaux 127
Nieuw! Superstar Aqua schmink 16 gram Illusion Indigo pearl (metallic) 139
Nieuw! Superstar Aqua schmink 16 gram INTENS Zwart 163
Nieuw! Superstar Aqua schmink 16 gram INTENS Wit 161
DiamondFX Neon 32 gram Oranje
DiamondFX Neon 32 gram Geel
DiamondFX Neon 32 gram Magenta
Superstar Aqua schmink 16 gram metallic Gold Finch 141
DiamondFX Big Rainbow cake NR 7 NEON

I must say, I was amazed at how small the 16gr containers are when my order arrived. I somehow expected the 16gr to compare to my 18ml snaz containers, lol. BUT: it made my purchase appear smaller to my hubbie.
Did forget to mention to him how I saved on shipping, won't happen again.

I figured I was shopping smart, I started loading 30gram containers of individual colors into my cart and then my brain said, "wait a minute, you're making one strokes..you don't NEED 30 grams of each color for 8.99...when you can get 25 grams of 2 different colors for 10.99"...my brain is so smart sometimes!

So I started loading up on the 50 gram 2 color splits....I love when my brain operates this way...then I just pretty much determined all the one strokes I want (every one Metina offers), and figured I could save $$$ making them myself. I should be set in paint for quite some time!! haha

Here is my kit. I have TONS of paint and I don't have any gigs lined up either because I just do it for fun! (I have a full time job that supports my face paint obsession) Sometimes I just look at it and smile!!!! I say keep on ordering if it makes you happy, that's what I do!!!!!
