I use two different boards depending on the event size. I have a small one made of plexiglass that has pictures sandwiched between. Since this pic was taken, I've named all of the photos so all they have to do is say the design name and I'll know. I have the photos arranged with the quickest designs on top, so that I can cover up the lower half if I need to paint faster.

Then I have one for larger festivals that has pockets. I can slip whatever pictures I want into the pockets for different venues. Each "section" is a different price, and I can change out the prices at the top if I want to go higher or lower. Love this chart a LOT, but it has to be hung from something so I save it for when I am using a tent. Props to my friend Becky who made this out of canvas and a clear shower curtain. (Menu is in left corner of pic.)

Arranging the designs by how fast you can paint them is a really good idea! I've been wracking my brain today on how I'm going to handle this at an event I'm doing Saturday. It could possibly be a lot of faces and I want to use the new board I made, but some of the designs are really time consuming.

I see a new board in my future. Shocked

You all have awesome ideas!!! This is a project I need to invest some more time on!!! Pimp Our Display Boards!!!

I bought some of those baseball trading card protectors with the great idea of reprinting my faces and putting them in the protectors. My idea was to use the velcro or adhesive magnet tape so I can arrange them on a display board or replace them easily. I also thought about color coding with little circle stickers pink, green, yellow and having a price for each color on another board so I don't have to reprice per event type.

I use those colored stickers to make pricing more clear, and it works well. Parents can say, "You can choose something from the green stickers" and kids know what to concentrate on.

I use a different kind of display form. It is practical because the designs can be viewed from different angles, and it is easy for me to change. Plus I rarely have time to take pictures when I'm out (how do you manage that?), so I don't really have some good ones. But this also does that they don't label the designs as boy or girl so much. So I have more girl monsters =)


This is the one I use now. I also have designs especially for Christmas, Halloween and so, then I just bring them as well, or only them.


My old one. But they had trouble choosing, so I limited the numbers, and choose bigger heads instead.

Cool idea. How do you keep the paint on the faces? Acrylic spray?

Wow, that's quite a menu board! Where did you get the faces? Are they ceramic or plastic? Do you have to take them all off to set up and take down?

By the way, I love that medieval face guard with beard! What a cute idea!

Re: Re-Amp my Display board

Thank you all. They are made of plaster, made them my self. They are coloured with acrylic colours. Else they are messed up by the first little wet finger that gets near (and the children will do that).

It is really easy to pack up and down. The board is wood in A4 size, and can just be folded together. With the big heads I have to have them on the outside, then bubble plast around. And between my sponges when travelling. The small ones was made so they can be folded faces the ones on the opposite site (still bubble plast in between) There are blue-tack on the back. It is strong enough to keep them there, but easy to remove. I did note that is was best with plaster for making dental impressions, the normal one had to be painted with acrylic paint on the back before it would stick.

There are a few problems with them: if they fall on the ground, the noses can be destroyed a bit. But normally not worse that a bit of colour on it will mask it. They do take some time to make (but can be painted over a lot of times). And you have to explain old ladies that they are not for sale...

In general my setup is really fast! Put up table and chair. Unfold my board. Attach a sponge bag on either site of the chair (one for new and one for used). Take a drawer out and take the lid of my brushes and colours (two tubes with brushes and one palette in two layers). And I'm ready. Can take as little as five minuttes =)

The medieval one is actually a viking, with original helmet and beard design (no, there was no horns on viking helmets, it was some German tribes that used that), but depending on the beard he can be a gladiator, warrior or even knight. Really practical!

Neat idea! I love the orange and yellow design - top left.

Although I have to ask...does anyone find it a little creepy, having all of those faces there?! I showed my brother, who claimed he was going to have nightmares about face painting tonight - he's 18, haha.

*lol* no, I have never heard anybody being scared about the display before.

The yellow design is very popular! One night I counted and I had painted it more than 50 times that day. I use the DFX metal yellow, with a bit of the metal pink in the bottom and then white or black swirls. Plus glitter on in some variation, either as dots, following the swirls or all over =)

So how did you make the faces? They look a bit like the ones that you get for dolls.

And how big are they?

Very neat idea.

Detailed instructions to make them: buy a mold. I got one that has several sizes on, then only filled the one in the correct size. The small one are 5 cm (2 inch) and the big one 8 cm (5 inch). There was also some tiny one, but I don't use them. Wait for the plaster to dry. Skin colour all over (find that easier than have to plan which ones are another base), paint eyes: white, blue (brown are hard to see, and it confuses the children if they have different eyecolours), black and some clear varnish/lacquer (don't know the correct word) to give them shine. Then they are painted with some tiny brushed in the desired design.
They are not the same as for dolls, there is only the front of the head. The back is flat.
Hope it made sense? =)

This is one project I need to undertake!!! Since most of my work is party and one restaurant I haven't really needed one truly. I do some sketches when I have a theme and let the kids pick their colors.

The design board really is good to have though when you have your solid quick faces that look good so kids KNOW what they are getting and decide faster. Plus less repetitive questions for you to answer!

It took some getting used to for me too, Perry. Maybe because they don't have hair? I couldn't quite figure out what was unsettling to me. But once I got used to looking at them I thought they were awesome. A little less portable than I need, but what a great idea. 3D really helps bring the designs to life better than pictures.

Thought about hair, but then they would think they had to have their hair painted that colour, and cutting them off under the hair line would look strange to... If somebody have a solution, I would like to hear =)

I really don't think it looks freaky. It just looks like a mask. Masks usually don't have hair.

Here are a few images of my current idea for a menu. Since I'm a new painter and don't have photos of real people, I decided to use my head... yes, pun intended. Haha.

As for hair, there are programs you can download that allows you to put different hairstyles on any photo. Virtual Stylist is one. I haven't gotten that far yet. I wonder if it will look ridiculous. I'll post pictures when I get it done.

This is what I have so far. Is it freaky?

I got curious after my last post so here I sit fiddling around with my images. Here is my girl with hair! Looks pretty good. I probably wouldn't use this style on my face painting menu... I just picked one to see how it looked.
