Hello from the UK :-)

Post by sar73 on Sun Jan 13, 2013 11:59 am

Hi, I am from the UK and have only just recently started face painting, as I was thinking of hiring a facepainter for my daughters 5th Birthday in April and after seeing how much one is to hire I decided to give it ago myself!!
I have been practicing on my daughter but as I have only had my new paints for a couple of days I only have a couple of attempts but am already pleased with my progress!! I did have some cheap ones which I used a couple of times but found they was so awful I have said my daughter can use them on her dolls!
I am hoping to learn new tips and easy faces in time for April to hopefully paint up to 30 children in 2 hours!!

Welcome to the Forum sar73!

Sponge techniques with one stroke bases speeds up my face painting.
Speed comes with practice.
It is better to do quality work well,
than poor work fast.

Practice, practice, practice.

Hi fesspenter thank you for your message!

I am looking into rainbow cakes to speed up multicoloured 'bulks' and also small cheek pictures so that the quality isnt compromised as I'd rather a small pretty ladybird on the cheek for example than a messy complete face badly done!
I am already practising on my daughter and have 3 1/2 months till her birthday so plenty of time to practice!

I am going to put an album on so that I/you can see the difference in my attemps from day one and also the difference in quality face paints and also I am hoping it will help me see how bad/good I am at different things!! ;-)

Welcome to the forum. I think that with some practice you may find that it is much easier and faster to do an eye design, mask, or even full face as opposed to cheek art. That is my experience anyway. Again, welcome.

Welcome Sar73!!
Your story sounds pretty much like mine. She was going to be 7 at that time and so happy to be painted, now she is going to be 9 and run when i take my brushes out! Very Happy i kept painting anyway i love it so much.
i have watch a lot of you tube. There are really good video there. I like Lisa Joy Young very much and MimicksTV her name is Ashlea and is from England she sound so sweet. You can even find Jay Bautista when you feel ready for a change.
Enjoy your painting! cheers
