Hello everyone

Post by magicnewe on Tue Apr 06, 2010 1:14 pm

Hi everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Kristen and I have absolutely NO experience in face painting, but I am very interested in learning. My family belongs to the Society of American Magicians and my teenage daughter is a two-time award winning magician who was also recently featured in an international magic magazine. I am her "boxjumper/assistant". I thought if I could learn to face paint it would be the perfect accompaniment or alternative to her birthday party shows. Since she has been taking on less shows due to her advanced coursework at school, preparing for SATs, and college searching has been taking up much of her time-- although it also leaves me with more time on my hands.

I never really thought about face painting until this past weekend. I was volunteering at my daughter's work (she works at a Children's Fairytale Park) where they were doing facepainting during the Easter Egg Event. They were so short handed I stepped in to help. Everyone painting were novices as this was a free service. The designs were simple cheek art. I had no idea how much I would enjoy it!! Although, I'm not surprised because I love kids and seeing their excitement and smiles-- another reason I love partnering with my daughter in magic.

I would really like to learn to do this the "right" way. I am a stickler for cleanliness, which makes it hard when you are learning and don't want to double-dip!

Any suggestions, recommendations, and insight you can provide would be greatfully appreciated! In the meantime, I will continue to study as much information as I can around the forum.

Thanks everyone!

Welcome Kristen!!

Sounds like you have the "right stuff" (joy, desire to learn, and a sprinkle of artistic talent, and hygienic tendencies!) and you definitely came to the right place!

You must be so proud of your daughter!! That is cool! Happy Painting!
