So I have had a Frozen Themed Birthday party to paint at least once or twice every weekend, so Today I decided that i should be offering more then just the frosty mask-Codegirl totally inspired me to try this! Thanks!

This is my first attempt at an OLAF. I ended up painting him a few times at a party this afternoon. I am excited how well he turned out, and think i will add him to my regular line up!

Nice Olaf! Just one thing tho, how long does it take to paint this one? I can do an Olaf in 2ish min on a kids face (skipping the outline if they are too wiggly). But the way you have your Olaf with the spaces for the black buttons, mouth, eyes and teeth looks like a lot of extra outline you can totally skip.
A class I took with Dutch Bihary he taught what he calls 'blobology' which is also what I do. Instead of outlining twice, lay down your solid shapes. With Olaf here you could shave off a lot of time and work by laying down all the white and simply going over it with the black and other colors to make the details. Give it a shot! I know it will speed things up for you! Smile

This one takes about 3-4 mins. The reason I chose to do the outline first- in the blue- is I like the accent it gives! I also hate waiting for layers to dry when I need to do line work which I why I didn't use a solid base (as I typically would on things that require less precise lines)
In a snap I would simplify him. But what I have the time and cooperating kids, I like the more detailed
One best!

Thanks for the tips!

Oh yeah I like the blue I add it to mine too but only as a highlight after the white, this gives the white a bit of drying time while I also add the arms and stick hair. I also add some t eardrops in white and blue at the top and bottom to give him more pizzazz. This way I don't have to stop and wait for the white to dry. I start with the orange and go straight to black from there. 2min tops on a still canvas. For younger ones I skip the body entirely.

First gig was for a school carnival and it was so fun!  I had a brush on a face for 2 1/2 hours and it could have been twenty minutes.  I did at least 45 faces.  I painted a paper at my station for each kid, but I have a push button counter in the mail for next time.  Was fun.  I want to do more events.  

Did lots of tigers and butterflies mostly




Then some other practices afterwards of what people asked me to do that I wasn't satisfied with.  





I also learned face paint is a pretty good sunscreen, LOL.  I had an arm full of silhouetted roses.


Great first time!

Some first attempts...

Post by Staley on Mon Jun 02, 2014 12:25 am

My 14yo daughter and I are really new to face painting but we are practicing when we can and enjoying it.  I wanted to share some first tries of both of ours.  I know we will both get better with time but I am not entirely unhappy with either of our first attempts.
Please pardon the watermarks.  It's set up automatically on my web size images.

First I will share hers.  She practiced on the boys and myself.  The one with her first attempt at a dragon on the head is inconveniently on my son with bangs but I think you can see it.

Her butterfly did not start out the way she intended so she went with what was there, hence the pointed wings.

My little guy will let me practice on him if he picks the subject so first up is a silly bat mouth.


Another day he let me try a werewolf.  Probably should have done his ears.  They stand out between the black background and dark face.

He loved that one and was not happy that I made him wash it off before bed  Very Happy 

My DD let me practice on her too.  Tried leopard eye first - next time will do a few less large spots and replace them with some smaller ones around the perimeter I think.


Then I tried graffiti eye.  The gal that sells the stencils does not have the set in stock.  I wanted to play so I tried to cut a few similar shapes from shelf liner with an exacto knife.  It worked OK on her but I tried on myself later and kept getting paint under my stencil.  Don't know if I had the paint too thin or just wasn't holding it right on my own face.  It was fun on her though it does not look good once her glasses are back on.  I think the leopard thing worked better with her glasses.

I struggled with cutting some shapes with the exacto knife and wonder if one of the burners would be easier to control.

Lastly, I tried a smaller basic looking butterfly on myself.  I have had a lot of difficulty practicing on myself.

I LOVE the bat on the mouth! I wanna play but I don't know how to make the pic actually post once I've chosen it.

First attempt at both designs, I can't take the credit for either. I was so nervous about doing roses with the way everyone talks about how hard they are. There obviously not perfect but I was pretty stoked with how they came out Smile

My little girl had a performance at her school this morning.





And she won! I am so proud of her. She had to dance alone in front of 100 kids and she did it!
