Hi from Austria.

Post by pinkblythe on Sun Apr 26, 2015 3:58 am

Hi, I live in a very rural area in Austria (in the north) and having born my 4th child in September I was searching for something to do while on maternity leave (which is 2.5 years in Austria)
I always painted since I was a kid and worked as a graphics designer for nearly 20 years. I like being with kids and so I decided to start facepainting. Plus bellypainting. In my area there is nothing like this.
I painted my kids and their friends a lot during the last few weeks and I grew quite confident with the paints.
I am looking forward to reading your storys and I want join the inspiration.

Welcome to the Forum, pinkblythe!
There is a game of Face Paint Tag going on in the thread of "Tag! You Are It!". We get weird requests on the job, so this is a chance to flex our painty muscles.
There is a place to post and share your work with a kind, warm, non-judgemental audience in the thread "Show and Tell".
This are collective years of knowledge in the threads. Have fun reading! You will find all different kinds of answers, as there are different artists, techniques, brands of paints.
Happy Painting!

Hi LittleMonsters, yes we are very fortunate this way... We can (at least in theory) choose if we want a shorter leave with more pay or a longer one (I choose 2.5 years with 450 € a month because where I live there is no childcare prior to 2.5 years. Therefore the "in theory" Wink)

I was already reading the forum for quite a while but today I wanted to start to be part of it. I had the feeling to "know" some of the ppl which are more outspoken already and I wanted to start contributing, not only be the invisible guest (I don't know what I could contribute at the moment, but when I will get more pro I will do so)

Dear pinkblythe:
We all started somewhere.
Most of us remember how it was in the beginning.
Please feel free of judgement to post your work in the appropriate thread. Here, you must request a constructive critique. People can tell you whatever they feel would improve. We are not supposed to pick on the person. This is a kind Forum.

Happy Painting!
