What do I need?

Post by SewDarnHot on Mon Sep 30, 2013 8:20 pm

I am planning on getting starblend in white and red as I have only been painting the base coats on. However, I was wondering what else i really need right now. I have about 30 to spend. I have other colors in small portions but the only big ones i have are a pink, pink and blue and a tag with bronze colors. I have a small snazaroo set and some small wolf ones from last halloween after sale that i made a couple splits and also put in a weekly pill box.
Ok so i guess my main question is do i need a big red and white regular or can i use starblend for the base and for linework?

You cannot use starblends for line work so you will def need a white. I use a lot of red, but you can prob use the snaz red for now until you make more, then you can invest more. Most of use take time to build a kit. I did it 40 here, 100 here, 20 there. You will also need a large black.most of us prefer wolfe, although we suspect they have changed their formula, that's a whole other topic. If money is tight and you have a Walmart, they have the small wolfed again, and they equal about the same price as ordering but you could just add a few colors you need.

Thanks a bunch. Good to know that I need seperate base and linework.
I checked my local Walmaet and didnt see them there again this time but I will check again. Hubby has a friend at work andfound out her mom use to face paint and might have a few things to destash. :-) Otherwise a couple Halloween shops just opened up and Maybe I can find a couple things to help me get through this weekend easier. :-) Hubby gets paid Friday and my gig is Sat. Cutting it close.
Once I looked. I have a few things more than I thought. Still need Starblends and more Red, White and some fun colors.

If you can come up with the basic colors found in a standard box of crayons you can make other fun shades. Torquoise, Hot pink, lime green, etc. can be made by repotting two colors in one container and mixing them as you paint.

Thx Mee Mee. I have been doing like a mini paint mix when i need a color so far. Guess i need to keep track of color i use more. I just have a few Halloween craft shows and dont want to be without something. Guess I need to figure out my board first. :-)
