Is face painting your main source of income?

Post by Judy on Fri Mar 05, 2010 12:39 am

Just wondering how many people on here are face painting for their sole source of income? How many fp as a second income, how many paint as a hobby?

It is my main income. The rest is bodypaint, temporary tattoos, makeup and a bit special effects =)

Mine is somewhat of a second income. I'm not actively pursuing jobs like I could, more for health reasons.

clowning/balloons/face painting are my main sources... I mean my husband works and makes ten times what I do so far, but I don't have another job.

Not me - this is my creative release from my corporate day job.

I still take it very seriously though : )

More for a hobby that will keep me sane amidst the pressures of college. But the extra income does help a lot.

My make-up business is one of several "jobs"... currently about 45% of my total net income annually.

If I wasn't doing it we would be in trouble.

It started out my secondary, but now it's my primary. I make more doing this than web designs and graphic arts

Painting is not my main source but one of many. I face paint, design tattoos, paint windows, murals, design logos, henna, nursing student, work with person with disabilities, organize events and hockey mom to 3 kids. Smile I would love it if I could do it full time, but carving that niche is difficult in my neighbourhood.

It's just in the beginning stages still for me as an income. I teach Wedding Planning at the local university, design marketing materials (logos, business cards etc), and face paint for income. My husband works full time and pays all the bills, my income pays for my 'creative' habits. Most of my time is focused on our home and raising two beautiful girls. My youngest will be in full time kindergarten next year so I hope to be geared up by then to go full speed on the face and body art business.

It's my only job, for the time being. Of course I'm manager of the face painting booths at the Downtown Aquarium and Kemah Boardwalk, so not only do I paint but I train and hire people, as well as scheduling, etc. But I do get out to do festivals sometimes.

This is my secondary income... I own my own drafting and design business, where I work with builders and individual clients to design their dream home and draw up all the construction drawings. Business was booming after Katrina with all the reconstruction, but with the economy in the shape it's in (and the mortgage industry), construction has slowed waaaaay down. Then hubby got laid off from his job of 25 years at Stennis Space Center and had to take another job making $25,000 less a year. Which meant I had to come up with another way to make ends meet!

for me, face painting helps to pay the bills, its sortof a 3rd income. This area is small in potential customer base, and hit rather hard by the recession. diffently if i didnt love it, i couldnt afford to to do it.

I'm a nurse on my "square" job. I would love to do this FT if I can. For now it is a passionate hobby that gives me a creative outlet and mental break. Great question !!

I quit my job to put all my efforts into starting my own face and body painting business. My hubby suports us.... poor him, I wanted to find something that fed my creative monster and allowed me to spend more time with my 4yr old.
My hubby just got a new airbrush set up for tattoos and face/body painting.... so I'm coaxing him into the industry slowly but surely.

I am a computer software engineer during the weekday- feeds my logic side of my brain - this job pays by mortgage and gives me health insurance. Face painting I do on weekends. Feeds my creative side of my brain.
