Hello, from Houston!

Post by granola on Sat Feb 02, 2013 4:11 pm


Hello!!! I am new to the Face Painting biz and I am having soo much fun so far. I am 32 years old and a mom of 3. I started facepainting years ago for my family and myself during Halloween and of coarse loved it but never thought of becoming a Facepainter until my son who is 4 would ask me to paint him as a doggy. I would use my eyeliner and red lipstick and he loved it!! I'd catch him jumping around in the backyard barking at the birds. Very Happy Anyway, it made me so happy to see him having fun with it, so then I looked up the kind of facepaint facepainters use because I knew it was different from the greasy stuff I used during Halloween. Bought some black Snaz. and white Wolfe and now I have a pretty cool kit! Unfortunatly my son is not as eager to be painted anymore and has to be in the mood. Rolling Eyes So I practice on my husband and luckily he is very supportive and very happy for me. I have found Lisa Joy Young and her middle name fits because she is a joy to watch and learn from. I have been on here alot and have enjoyed reading and learning from all of you! It took along time for me to introduce myself as I became a member I believe acouple months back. You all are sooo talented and I have much to learn, glad I found you all, have a great day! Was gonna go back and spell check but my baby son is crying No Sorry.

Dear granola:
Welcome to the Forum!
Have you seen the newbie thread for non-judgmental (and quite inclusive) viewing of your work?
I hope you find a life time of fun and addictive learning here.
I learn something all the time...
like today,
because of Miss Ronnie,
I will always read
SFX
as
SEX.
I cannot unring that bell.

I digress.
xoxo

Welcome!!
I hear you about the your son not wanting to be painted anymore. That happened to me as well, with both my kids. I think there was a tread on here about that happening, and it seems to happen quite often with painters children. I am glad your husband is a help. Mine has a harder time sitting still than the children, so I have only painted him once.. Laughing
