Hi from the Northern Territory Australia

Post by Peachymango on Thu Feb 25, 2010 8:05 am

Hi I'm Juanita from a small town in the outback of the Northern Territory.
Have been fp for a few years but only found out about proffesional quality paints a couple of years ago.
Have challenges withthe heat and perspiration and painting. Hard to get really smooth bases. But I love facepainting. Am also a fibre artist and doll maker of cloth dolls. I enjoy chatting on forums and have only just found this on. I reckonise some people from other forums so hi to them as well.

Hi from Canberra.

Stick clear of Snazaroo products, with the kind of heat that you deal with. I have found they get a bit stick and difficult to paint on really hot days.

I use TAG witch paints ok in the heat, but it does not stand up well to heavy sweat.

That is the limit of my limited knowledge about painting in very hot conditions. Very Happy

Thankyou for the kind welcome.
ChrisD I use mostly DFX and TAG. Some Grimas(like their pearls) Kryolyn but the white melted in the heat. I heard about snaz not being good in the heat so haven't tried.I was thinking of trying some Paradise paints Like the look of the colours also the shimmer powders. Iv think I might be addicted to buying paint Very Happy
My latest purchases were the rainbow TAG in regular pearl and neon and one of the 3 colour ones..
Hopefully painting tomorrow depending on weather. Large monsoon trough swirling over N.T. lots of rain.
Cheers
Juanita

Hi Juanita-

Welcome to the forum! Glad you found it! Does it rain every day in the summer there or often???? It is so strange to realize our winter is your summer.

I too am addicted to paint buying - got to try them all to figure out your "must haves" - -- hee hee and now on the forum you can go the forum swap and let go of what you don't love - and get stuff you like or want to try - guilt free!!!

Happy Painting!

WyndyO Doesn't rain all the time in the wet season just seems like it in a monsoon cycle. Otherwise it's just heat buildup storms in afternoon evening and can be no rain at all for a week or so sometimes. Our daytime Max at moment 29C Much hotter in buildup mode 37 to 40 before wet season starts. It was dripping when I went to my market gig this morning but fined up and has rained again since I,ve been home. Got to try some new ideas out from my Christmas present books.
Hi Kath great to meet up with you here.
Cheers
Juanita
