Hi I'm a Newbie Here from Asia (Singapore) - (Hobbyiest Drummer) In A Rock Band

Post by rudimentaldrummer on Thu Jun 03, 2010 10:13 pm

Hi, my name is Eric and I’m a Hobbyiest Drummer playing in a Rock Band in Singapore.

My actual Profession is into the Marketing / Distribution of Toyota Auto Parts throughout Asia Pacific.

Knows nothing about Face-Painting really that’s why I am here … as I really wanna learn this Art (but there is no school in my country to learn this) ….

Core reasons is- because – I wanna Paint my Band Members Faces when we do Gigs….

I hope to learn from all you Veterans and Experience people here.

Warmest Regards


Eric



My Band Elements - Live At Top5 (The Song - Arise)

Because we are a Rock band - I wanna learn how to Paint Our Face

Hi Kathy, unfortunately I cant, cause I am so New here….1st of all

I don’t know where to get the right type of Paints to get started out…I bought some Crayons for (Face and Body Type that is make in China) – the only paints I saw – but these paints has …No Depth (in colours) – It doesn’t looks nice…far apart from the Paints (those works) I saw here --- in this Forum – I figure – the paints you all have been using – must be some kind of Special Paints (and I do not know where to purchase them).

My apology here – last nite as soon as I got home with my paint-crayon (for the 1st time) … I asked my Maid to sit down and allow me to test it on her face …. And she was so shock after she looks herself into the mirror (that she said to me – Sir what have you done to me OMG – the paint looks terrible so is your work – maybe it’s the paints ) I know she is trying to be nice to me goshhhhhhhhhhhh

.. and she wash it off immediately – that’s how I knew – the Crayon was of terrible quality for Face-Painting and my work ( I have to acknowledge that here).

Kathy my Moderator … can you recommend me where do I get my stuffs and how do I get started from scratch here.

Warmest Regards & Many Thanks


Eric

Hello & welcome. Enjoy your journey into face painting. My bro is in the band scene in California. His is a little different. He takes old toys like speak & spell & reworks them to make unique sounds.... strange to me, but I guess there's a fanbase that's into it. He's a product of the 80's punk rock scene.

Hello Eric;

Good luck getting started. You are right, the right products make a huge difference.

Some of the most popular paint are made and packaged in China so it seems you would be able to find a distributor online or maybe not too far from you in a big city like Shanghai. Lucky Art out of China is the manufacturer of Wolfe FX (US), Diamond FX (US AND UK), TAG (Australia), and VIP MUA ; which are basically the same formulation of makeup - just some minor differences in colors offered and packaging.

Before you spend a lot of money on classes go to Youtube for face painting tutorials - several of our forum members have them - Metina, Vi Le, Marvelous Masks, and an excellent resource also is Silly Farm (Heather Banks or SillyHeather)! Better to spend your money on paint and start practicing to start off, I think. There are some great books that talk about brush control, loading the paint, blending - Shannon Fennell's is good and there are others...

Have fun!

Hi & welcome to the group Eric.

Expensive?! sounds it to me.

Take WyndyO's advice & go to youtube & search face painting tutorials. You'll be amazed what you can learn there everything from basic line work & how to use your brush to more advanced designs. I agree spend your money on good quality paints & give youtube a go. Paints as mentioned by WyndyO: Wolfe Bros, Diamond FX, TAG, also Snazaroo.
