Hello from sunny Bay of Plenty, New Zealand!

Post by shayleefairypainter on Tue Mar 08, 2016 4:25 pm

Hi Everyone! sunny

Iv been reading this forum for a good month and have quite literally spent hours on it! This alongside youtube, was probably my best "go to" places in researching what to get for my kit, and now that its arrived, how to do all the things I'm trying to do!

Its DEFINATELY not as easy as I thought. Or as easy as experienced painters make it look on youtube lol, but it is so fun!

I'm still practising on my thighs and occasionally my face, my nieces and nephews are a little too wiggly for me just yet. I get a little distracted doing one stroke designs because they look so pretty.. when I should really be practicing my line work (iv watched and read a zillion things about lines and tear drops but I'm just not fabulous at it. YET!).

So thank you everyone for your contributions to this forum! It has been such an invaluable tool for me and I look forward to being able to contribute myself in the future.

Oo also if there is anyone else from NZ who would like to connect in regards to face painting id love to hear from you!

Have the most beautiful and blessed day,
Shaylee Fae flower

Welcome to the Forum!
I believe the lovely and talented Daizy Designs is from the North Island! My sister lived in Christchurch until three months before the big earthquake.
Happy Painting!

Enchanted Faces, you have an exceptional name! That's what I wanted to call mine if it ever became a business but then I googled and someone in Nz already had it Sad. Unsure about the face painting business as yet as I'm still only practicingbat home. Although by the sounds of it you guys have ALOT of business over there! I'm from a smaller city but I'd never heard of people face painting at night clubs or restaurants etc until reading this forum! But you should definitely visit Nz Smile it's worth it for the culture and the nature!
Hi Rose Nuku! where are you based? How are you finding things?

In my city, there is a lot of business, but so much competition here too. This is my first year of my own business, before this, I worked with my mom for 5 years.

Hi Shayleefairypainter....I'm from Opunake a small coastal town in Taranaki..I've only just discovered face painting so I'm just trying to get together my supplies while trying to find time to practice.
