question? holiday designs only?

Post by novice tammy on Tue Dec 03, 2013 11:13 am

Hey. I was just wondering what most do during holidays. Do you have holiday selections and regular selections or just focus on the holiday designs?

Same as above...
Plus, if I remember, I strive to paint jaunty Santa caps on the foreheads.

I also have special gold holly leaves and silver snowflake jewels I accidentally bought many years ago...and now, I LOVE them.

Happy Painting!

ever since i got my snowflake stencil, EVERY design is potentially winter.

i just switch to blue and white colors, or red and green designs...or gold and silver...

or i keep it the regular colors, and stamp on some snowflakes and wispy snow lines.

i had to do a gig yesterday of ONLY holiday designs....
never had a group so disapointed-they liked the designs after i was done, but man, they had some sad sad faces after i had to tell them only holiday designs...
so hard painting a frowning face....i was glad they smiled in the mirror but that really made me sad.


in the future, if a kid asks for something and it isn't holiday related, i will make it holiday anyways, by putting it in a stocking, or giving it a santa hat, or adding a bunch of candycanes or other wintery stuff to it.

Today I brought holiday designs and regulars, and found that so many more went for the holiday designs when I featured them front and center on my display. Which I'm glad about, because they're cute and it WAS a holiday party. That said, there was, of course, the requisite dude of webs, and the man of the pointy black mask. I don't add any "Santa" to those, or I could wind up in trouble with the Commander of the Superheroes, or whoever runs LittleBoyLand.

Many events that don't know much about face painting think that you will need nothing but faces specific to their event, ie just Christmas designs or just clown designs at a circus etc.

It has been my experience that most of the time the kids don't care what the event is, they want to be cats and butterflys etc. We just assure the event coordinator that we will provide event specific designs while we also use some of the standard faces that kids expect.

Here's my grinch. A loop for the apples of the cheeks, little scrunch on the nose, bushy eyebrows and girly eye lashes and a Santa hat. I used dark green for the thin lips and a dog nose.

Omg I am in love with the sprinkle lips! So cool!!! I would try painting a weaving string of garland, some swirls, or even just a green base before adding in the bulbs. The bulbs themselves are great, it just feels like there is something missing. The teardrops and swirls around the eyes are fantastic on the bottom one, and your star placement is perfect (I am never happy with mine)

Those are all really cute designs... That's why I was wondering to offer both because you work hard on holiday designs and then they all pick hello kitty or spiderman. Yeah, you can Christmas them up, but still have all the cute Christmas designs not being chosen.

Here's my HK ready for the holidays.  Not the best picture, but you can see how I made it Christmassy for her.
