Thank You so much Lady Jayde. I know how it goes about criticism but I am only learning so I definitely want it. Thank you for the suggestions about the bee and getting my whites whiter. As for my heavy hand I'm hoping it will train itself with the aide of a good brush.

You are very welcome! There are quite a few painters who see advice as an attempt to harm, so I can appreciate that you was to utilize the awesome resource that has formed here. And yes, a good brush will help, but don't put too much reliance on your tool beyond that. Technique technique technique...and the ability to tweak technique to accommodate the strengths and weaknesses of the tool. I was once told that when I could paint a #6 line with a #3, a #2 with a #6 and everything with a #4 brush I will have "arrived"...well, I can and oddly I don't perceive any change in location : Cool

I did, but I do not like it at all.

The red and yellow are Fantasy FX. The white and black are Paradise. And the greens and pinks are silly farm's FAB.

The wolfe white absolutely takes me forever to load on a brush. I honestly think I just needed to get better at loading and be more patient with waiting for paint to dry.

New cakes need to be worked up a little before they start loading easily, I have to paint with a cake a couple of times before I use it at a gig, activating a new cake with a long que is not fun.

looking good, nice combination of colors Smile

keep working on the wolfe white, it can be such a great white, for details especially. it's bright as well as opaque.

i found it needed to be wetter than i expected, and since it is more liquid than creamy, there is a sweet spot where it is just wet enough, but not runny. kind of "thick wet".

great job!

on the sideways pic - for some reason, i find if i crop my photos a bit, save them, and then post the cropped version, they always come out upright.

sometimes the originals don't, maybe because i take the picture holding my phone in landscape orientation?

I like it!

My only suggestion would be to do less, but larger whisker spots & maybe slightly thicker lines down the cheekfolds. (I am assuming this will be viewed from afar.)

It is an awesome design!

Kal I have enjoyed seeing your artwork! So using designs with your own take on them. Nicely done. The grinch face paint shows such progress where you have thin to thick lines! I am a semi newbie myself (face painting a year) but have painting experience with other mediums. There is really an "art" in loading your brush properly no matter the paint and having good brushes which you have invested in. Practice I know is key to getting better and using the right techniques. I invested in FABATv for a month and have taken a couple classes on line work and brush loading that have upped my game! Super excited to learn more.

Keep up the awesome work!!

So this weekend I figured out what the problem with my wolfe white paint is... LOLOLOL.

For whatever reason I decided to read the label and it said "Clear Neon White". No wonder I couldn't see the paint. DeRp!

Anyway... my own unique style is starting to develop. I've got a loooong way to go, but I've come a looong way as well. I feel pretty confident for only having a year's worth of painting under my belt Very Happy

Nope... This was a festival kid whose Mom showed me a picture of one she did with "walmart" paint and dared me to match her lol. This one took me 4 minutes to make up after looking at her Walmart paint pic, once. She couldn't believe her eyes. She started hollering at everyone in the line about how "good" I am. I'm thinking, "just wait".

The offspring are now charging me for use of their face Sad

First time I've ever tried making my real mouth disappear. I'm not happy with this paint but I am also overly critical sometimes so I wanted to see what you guys have to say.

I'm trying to get some marketing stuffs for the promotion of Halloween appts.

The difference between painting after a long day of the kids driving me crazy and painting on a Saturday morning after I've slept in.
