Hello from Sherwood, nottingham, UK!!

Post by jaydreams007 on Tue Sep 30, 2014 11:41 am

Hi everyone, My name is Jay, I totally love face painting and would love to make a career out of it. I am currently a stay at home mum. I have two beautiful girls age 1 + 3! so I have some little wrigglers to practice on (when they let me!)
I aspire to eventually do full on body painting and compete at the "festival".
I am just building up my kit at the minute and working out the best paints to get etc. I currently have a mix of kryolan and snazaroo. not loving the snazaroo though. terrible for line work. excited for Christmas as i'm going to update my kit and get stencils and glitter etc.
Good times!!

Welcome to the Forum, jaydreams007:
There are collective years of wisdom in some of the old threads on this Forum. Read through some and I am sure you will find some helpful ideas and suggestions. You will notice that there are different suggestions, paints, products... because we are all different kinds of artists.
There is a game of Face Paint Tag going on in the thread "Tag You Are It'. There is a place to post and share your work with a kind, non-judgemental audience in "Show and Tell".

Happy Painting!

welcome jay. you have discovered "newbie's law", snazaroo is not good for line work, lol. i find the only way i can get a decent line is mixing it with plenty of water and painting on bare skin, not over a base layer of face paint.
