I have my first scheduled "gig"!

Post by ediesbeads on Wed Sep 11, 2013 12:22 pm

My best friend's daughter is having her sweet 16 party and it is a carnival theme! So my friend asked if I wanted to face paint! She offered a small amount of money just to cover supplies and I said YES!!! I still have a couple of months to practice (whew!). So what should I work on for teens of both genders? I'm looking at this as a great way to get practice and a feel for professional work.

A lot of the teens I paint like 'random' or goofy. Often they like names and fonts. I have ALOT of teen and adult paints....how many attending and how fast do you need to be? This a great 'soft start' for you!

Thanks so much for the ideas!  I need to look at "tribal" designs I'm told.  I think the teen boys will be hardest, if they even want to be painted. Any more ideas out there?

You know what's awesome? I just found this out at a gig last week - the Mortal Instruments tattoos. Apparently in the books they like give power to people, but who cares, they're really awesome designs.
