New Canuck Face Painter!

Post by drayce on Thu Mar 07, 2013 4:37 pm

Hi Everyone!

MY name is Lyn and I've been playing around with make up and facepaint for years. I had a basic, 6 colour kryolan set and have been doing small parties for friend's kids and my own, as well as festivals.

Finally, I broke down and bought a larger kit from facepaintingtips.com cause it just makes me so happy to be able to paint.

Upon looking at the bill *gag* I've decided it's time to get serious about it and start practicing instead of doodling.

I've been creeping the site for a bit now and figured I couldn't get away without introducing myself anymore!

You are all so talented, I can't wait to get to know you all and learn from you!

<3
Lyn

Welcome to the Forum, drayce!
I am from Toronto.
It is very hard to type this from our igloo what with all the polar bears and moose banging around outside in the howling wind and snowflakes bashing and slamming into the ground.
Where are you from in Canada?

I'm also in Calgary! Very Happy

And you're right Lisa, sure is hard tough here in the great white north. I had to get a new pair of mukluks and a parka just so I could trek into work! Wink

This is so exciting!! *swoon*

I can't wait to post some pics in the Show and Tell section!
We're having about a bazillion people over to my house on Saturday for my fiance's birthday, close to a half of them will be children and I plan on breaking out my paints!
My stepkids have been bouncing off the wall since they saw my new paint and want me to paint them ALL THE TIME (aww shucks Wink )

SO I should have a bunch of stuff to post on Sunday!

Well we'll see how long it lasts! Wink
They are still young enough (8-10) that face painting is a big deal and really cool, hopefully that will last a while.

I also made sure I got UV paints because I have my basement done up with a disco ball and black lights. Everytime they have friends over they run downstairs to have 'dance party'
They haven't had a chance to try out the UV paints yet so they're vibrating with excitment about tomorrow. cheers

Dear drayce:
I had to put on a parka and mukluks in order to go to the showers. We have to chip the ice off the top of the water bucket we bathe in. You know how it is here in the deepest, darkest part of metro Toronto.

Welcome, Drayce! I hope you get as much out of this wonderful forum as I do - it's such a great, welcoming, supportive place. Smile

Fesspenter - stop being silly. Moose don't exist, I told you!

I wonder if Kammy exists.
I have seen an actual polar bear at the zoo.
I do not know if that is actually a Kammy, or a real alien in that avatar.

I exist. I think. Now I'm going to worry about that, all night.
Thank you for that.

Moose still don't exist, however. And nobody's putting me in a zoo, either!

Dear silversky:
mukluks are just the Canadian version of Uggs,
with more laces,
waterproofing that goes higher up on the shoe than Uggs,
and
they are also available in french.
