Hi from Australia

Post by silversky on Sun Jan 20, 2013 5:16 pm

Hi, my name is Louise and I am new but not so new to facepainting. I did a few classes a couple of years ago in prep for a school fete. The fete was great and I got a booking for a party which was nerve wrackingly fantastic! Family circumstances then jumped in and my facepainting came to a halt. Life is good again now and my passion has returned. I drive my husband crazy because I practice so much wanting to perfect my art before diving in professionally, he thinks I will waste all my precious paints, and tells me to just go for it, and stop waiting to be perfect. I guess I just need to get over my nerves and go for it.
I have painted a couple of times at the end of last year, once at a ppf stall at an art and craft market, unfortunately there were very few kids there, but it was fantastic to see the kids smile when they looked in the mirror.
We had a car boot sale at the local school and I got to paint about a dozen kids there and leant that I really have to paint faster as I lost a few in the line as I took so long, wanting each strike to be perfect.
Anyway enough rambling for the moment. Will try to upload some photos in the newbies section when I work it out, loving this forum so far!!
Cheers.
Louise

Welcome to the Forum, silversky!
We all suffer from trying to achieve perfection. There is a Newbie Show and Tell thread were you post your efforts with no criticism. If you ask for critiquing you may have one on one cheer leading to boost you through the next step.
We are also playing Tag, you're it January 2013. Tagging each other with quick odd requests, which we get asked for all the time in the field. This is not about perfection... this is about passion.

Where in Australia do you live?

Can't wait to see your painting wherever you decide to add them.
