Hey from QLD Australia

Post by Elise on Tue Jun 29, 2010 3:25 am

Hey everyone,
Just by reading through posts i think i may be one of the youngest here at 16.

I've found a love for facepainting and I'm on my way to starting my own little business. So far I have volunteered at two school fetes and been asked to help out for a local fair in my area. At the most recent school fete a lady took pictures of my work and asked me for a business card! I was so thrilled with the idea of someone thinking my work as professional Smile

And from there it has grown... Art and Music and designing have always been a strong passion of mine. Almost anything to do with creativity and I'm up for it. Besides, it sure beats working at McDonalds!

So yeah, i guess that's a little bit of information about how I got started, I am currently sourcing materials and waiting for my paints that i bought online to arrive Smile Already this forum has helped me so much with what to purchase and other little helpful hints, thankyou !

Elise.

Depends if you want your work critiqued then there is a constructive critisim thread in General, otherwise if you just want to show what you are up to... post it under your own title in General, or if you want to know why maybe a design didn't work the way you wanted you can post in the 'how do you do this' section.
Up to you.
What paints did you order?

Hey Elise, welcome to the group. Another aussie, I'm from Cradle Mountain, Tasmania! Have you heard of Bec Anthony - Craftmania? She's based in QLD I recently went to Melb to do a course with her, she's lovely.
Good for you getting out there & giving it a go, it's so addictive....have fun. I look forward to seeing your work once you get your new paints.

Another little tip if you are going to get some business cards check out vistaprint.com they have some amazing deals, so cheap!!

Well actually it's funny you say that, because i have already designed a business card on vistaprint.com quite a few weeks ago Very Happy

And Bec Anthony, i have actually watched quite a few videos of hers on youtube, she is really great so i might look into that.

As for paints, i have bought Snazaroo - white, black, red, blue, yellow, pink - for base colours mostly and TAG - neon rainbow cake, and three splits
As i go along I'm looking to buy metallics, sparkles and many other colours but i thought i would start small and grow from there.

At the last fetes i painted at, they supplied us with large pots of paint from crazy clarks (cheap store) and palettes and paintbrushes. Eeek so unhygienic :S But I am so excited to get stuck into the good quality paints Smile
