Princess & the Frog

Post by Psalmbook on Thu Aug 05, 2010 10:43 pm

Since the movie The Princess & the Frog came out I've gotten a few request for it. I usually give the child a Mardi-Gras mask, but have noticed, while they think it's pretty, it's not really what they want. I've also tried a frog lady(it was quite awful)Any suggestions or pics of what you've come up with? This would have made a great TAG...

I find with stuff like that cheek art of the characters is easiest. It's too hard to make a mask look like the cartoon. The firefly, the frogs of course, the crocodile, and the voodoo guy would all be good characters.

Have you asked them if they wanted to be the "princess", the frog, skull witch doctor or what? And then improvise from that?

What about a mardi gras mask with the frog princess as the center of the forehead. Just a quick version.
Maybe they want the princess or the sorcerer...or voodoo doctor?

My big problem w/ doing the princess is she is the same color as most the kids wanting the design. She just doesn't show up brown on brown & I can't "lighten" her because she wouldn't look like. I'm thinking the Mardi gras mask w/ a crown wearing girlie frog in the center....

I had one earlier this year and the mom specified Princess and the Frog. Here are a couple I came up with.

Tiana's Crown

Dr. Facilier (voodoo man)


They both need some work, I haven't quite gotten around to it though. Both were really popular at the themed party.

Oooh, those are cool! Apparently things like that don't catch on much here in my area, because I never get requests like that. Sad I'd love it if I had some more inventive kids, I love a challenge!

The snake could be done like the standard around-the-face-snake, just change the face a bit, and make round shapes instead of stripes?

If you're going to paint Tiana as a cheek art and the little girl is already Tiana's color, then just use their skin tone as the base! There are no "rules" to face painting... Just go with what looks right!

Thank you Liz! I'll remember the crown & the voodoo guy(love the bone necklace).
My area is very popular for it also because so many people re-settled here after Katrina.

What about the frog-over-the-mouth design that's on the cover of Funky faces? Put a little crown on it. It was one of my daughter's favorites.

I know it's been awhile since anyone posted here, but I've been working on some princess and the frog stuff too! My little one loves it. . .I was trying to figure out the figures for her cheeks or arms. It's not a new design or anything. . .just the characters.

This was my first try at the Alligator and the little firefly, Ray.

I'm not at all happy with this one (the nose is totally off to me), but at least I can tell it's some type of reptile Sad

[img][/img]

His bottom half is cut off in the picture Sad Guess that's what I get for practicing on my arm after everyone else is asleep.

I'm going to try the princess on the side of the face, but don't think I can do the one stroke dress I'm thinking about on my own face. . .I seem to get in a hurry and turn the brush the wrong way so maybe tomorrow.

BTW I love the voodoo guy and the crown! They are so cute and don't look horribly difficult. Being new a lot of stuff seems way out of my league, but I might be able to pull off a half way decent attempt at those - if you guys don't mind of course Smile

Hey Liz. . .Hope you don't mind, but I just had to try out the voo doo witch doctor when Princess and the Frog came up at the park! I did it from memory so it's not perfect or close to the fabulousness of yours, but I think it turned out okay. Thought you might want to see Smile
