Here they are! On Wednesday I wasn't even thinking about my order when I came in and saw The Box my husband had set on the the kitchen counter with the rest of the mail. (Love those 'little' Priority Mail boxes from Metina! bounce )
I ordered all the pearl TAGs I didn't have (which was most of them) plus 10 green sponges and a couple of other TAG I wanted to try...oh, and a lone LC brush I forgot to photograph.

AND I got to use them last night at a slumber party I did!!


We are really egging each other on here, aren't we, Nina. Embarassed

Welcome all! to the paint-aholic meeting in Metina's supply room!

Nah. Get what you want! That's how I began too (more than $300, though, but in a few separate orders). Be prepared, also, to tweak your kit as you discover new needs (notice I didn't put quotation marks around "needs" - because they WILL be NEEDS Very Happy ). And also be prepared that some stuff will disappoint you and practically never get used.

It is the only way to start. Just like life. You learn and tweak as you go along, which is way better than sitting on the sidelines waiting until everything is perfect. Because it never is!

And yes, if you build it, they will come, as someone said above. As long as you are committed to the non-pretty part of face painting (the pretty part, of course, being the looking for and ordering of a slew of colored paints and glitters; and the non-pretty but equally important part being the marketing and pursuing of work), then having a nice attractive well-stocked kit can actually spur you to get the work, because it's nice knowing that you have a great set-up to offer!

Go for it! Not crazy at all - just bold and decisive and a commitment to your new venture!

Seriously, last year at this time I owed 3 paintbrushes and a snazaroo 12 color palette hahahha....this is just not right!!! lol It gets worse, I keep seeing people use the FAB ziva blue shimmer paint and they don't sell it here...so I ended up on another site and ended up with a few more brushes they didn't have here and some more paints eeek!! I gotta stop!

I got the 'cases' at the Container store...someone else on the forum said they got them there and so I went! They are great. Because I wanted to be able to take the lids off the ones I use at a gig and leave them off (so I can let the cakes dry when I get home) I did have to put a bit of bubble wrap under the paints to keep them sliding over the top of others that are open when I pack up for the day. (Hope that makes sense.)
Here's the link on the forum where I posted pictures (about 3/4 of the way down the page I put pictures of the box with the Container Store label still on it) if you want to see:

I really love them! They fit nicely in the bottom of "PudgyMaxine" (FatMax) too!

Sandie, Hmmm...well I've only 'taken them out' twice. I think they are fine...especially since they are only $3.99 each (and Oregon doesn't have sales tax Wink ) I don't see them falling apart quickly; they are not brittle plastic but that more 'flexible' kind (if that makes sense.)
When I use them I lay them out with my paint in them and put other colors in the lid section. Helps keep individual pots from sliding off the table. They are just so handy. I know that isn't what you are asking tho...Maybe you could try just one first...but if you have to pay shipping for more than one order that will be a pain.

oh yeah, I also placed an order from the container store for 2 of the $3.99 project cases, and also for a bunch of those little mini rectangle containers (so I can make my one strokes) I saw in the reviews on them that someone said they were a facepainter and that the containers were perfect for one strokes!


edited to say: Oh, and they had these cases that look JUST like the art bin brush boxes, for only $2.99, so I got 2 of those too and I will be gluing in my own foam pieces to hold the brushes!! Those art bin boxes are like $20 a piece!

Dear Tina,

Yes. Yes, it does. It makes you a sicko. But you're in good company.

My name is Kammy, and I'm a face painting addict.

Love,

Me xx

Tina, what are you going to glue the foam down with? I was going to try that but didn't know what would hold it down with repeated "tugging" out the brushes.
I ended up buying an Art Bin brush thing affraid ...but I've got so many brushes they are layered in there 3 deep Laughing so I'd like to try making the next one.
And while I'm asking...what did you glue the elastic down with on the bamboo brush holder you made????
