"Before" and "After" (addiction) Kit Pictures

Post by Valerie A on Sun Jan 06, 2013 5:13 pm

We were talking on another thread about sharing "before" and "after" (so far Wink ) kit pictures. So if you have a pictures of your first face painting supplies (simple snaz kit, klutz kit, or whatever) and what you have "today" (before you obsessively buy any MORE geek) Please share.

Nina
Thanks for sharing! I noticed the tag "brave" base blender in your collection, how do you like it? I'm intrigued but afraid to invest, I can't picture what I'll do with it.

the brave, I didnt end up liking as a base, but each two edge colors make nice one-stroke butterflies , which I learned from Denise Cold stepbystep somewhere, and the watermelon, I got because it looked so pretty, the only thing I have used it for is neon-pink one-stroke roses, so i would not buy the brave again, because many other one strokes also ake great buterlfies, and the watermelon, im undecided

Ok, so this is going to look like I have a serious problem but I swear I don't! I just have a new found love for painting. So...I started with this small Klutz kit....



And over the past 6mths? I have grown to this kit....







I justify it by telling myself that I have never had any other hobbies...painting is it for me! I do, however, have quite a few parties under my belt already. Close to 30 if I had to put a # to it. I'm sure that's small to alot of you but it seems like a great start to me! Anxious to see everyone else's growth....or hoarding! lol P.S. My kit would not be this big if it haden't been for all you enablers! Twisted Evil I want MORE!!!

Thanks ninaschau Very Happy here is a break down of what is in it, didn't want to unpack lol!
In the top compartments I have - q-tips, glitters and glitter gels and detailz, business cards and holder, gems and glue, camera and extra batteries, receipt book and pen, small extra mirror, eyelashes, sponge sticks and dot wands, Martha Stuart pouncers and some big sponges I picked up from Hobby Lobby (great for covering big area), stipple sponges, spray bottle of water, Ben Nye LiquiSet and Graftobian stage blood, Altoids, aspirin, headbands and bobby pins.
In the bottom I have - all my stencils (about 12 different stencils in a ziplock bag), large mirror, folder with MSDS sheets, binder that has pics of cheeky art, brush holder (cube tube) and brushes, newly dyed black sponges and snazaroo petal sponges in a mesh bag,extra mesh bag for dirty sponges, lint brush (for glitter clean up), 2 black hand towels (dyed with my sponges), hand sanitizer, starblends in black, red and white with the smoothie blenders, and glitter spray for the girls hair (picked up some extra cans from the Halloween clearance sale), alcohol wipes and diaper wipes. I also have the foam board/duct tape table that I made for on top of my FatMax and I picked up a shower rod that tightens to the height I need to support under the lid/foam table. I love my kit but I have still got to finish my display board...not liking it much at all! I will try to post a pic of it later (it is not finished) maybe you guys can give me some suggestions?

Wow, Erica...you DO have a problem... lol! Seriously, you have a wonderful kit! Thanks for listing your stuff too. I Like that shower rod thing that tightens for lid/foam table support idea...I think I will have to try that.
You are a great painter and I wish you much success on your endeavors!

I love my little black spongies Ash! You should give yours a dip... I ordered some of the green sponges (they are now black to) and I really prefer the yellow ones...idk their brand name but I got them from jestpaint. The greenies are just a bit TO soft and get my fingers painty. I hate when I get paint under my nails! Evil or Very Mad About the festival, yes it's one of the biggest in our area...gets bigger every year. I hope I didn't sound as anxious and pathetic as I felt when I spoke to the coordinator. I really am nervous as hell and it isn't until July!!! Embarassed Anyone have a "do and "don't" list for fairs?

Well I am getting my hourly rate from them, 3hrs a day for 5 days. And I always have my 11yr old help. I pay her $10 per party. She will probably try to shake me down for more with this one though... I will be painting just whoever bought tix. I was told I could put out a tip jar to.
