Hello from Perth, Australia

Post by Alina0210 on Tue Feb 24, 2015 3:32 am

HI everyone,
Im Alina, and quiet new to face painting... been painting my own kids, and their friends for a couple of months now... I have 3 kids, 9yr old boy, and 2 girls age 6 and 4.

I got into face painting after our school sport carnival and one of the mums from school bought her own paints down and I was like wow you can buy nice facepaints here. I painted a few kids faces without really knowing what I was doing and everyone though I had done it before. I have always been good at art and creative type projects, and usually can look at a picture and copy it. I have also been to a few kids birthday parties and realised my work was on par with them.

So I have spent a few months getting the brush stokes and consistencies right. I have been lurking on this forum for a few weeks too :/

I have had some pretty strange requests from my girls... so i always try and make it work, my 4yr old is actually really hard to paint, she looks every which way, then compains her backs sore, she needs water all within 5 secs of getting touched by paint. argh.

This is my favourite painting so far.. my daughter wanted a pink robot... argh.

Welcome to the forum!

So glad you could join us. 

lol yes most of us fall into face painting kinda 'by accident' too. :p 
A similar thing happened to me when I was 12 and the face painter bailed! So i stepped in and everyone thought it was the best thing they ever saw lol.

You have quite the skill there! If you hadn't told me otherwise I would think you had a few years under your belt. So glad you could find out about face painting and the joy it brings you.

Don't be shy to post new topics, or ask questions.
We love active members!

There are also several face painting 'games' on the forum if you want to join in the fun, like "Tag! You're it!" and "Ready. Set. Play!" And don't forget the monthly challenge!
