My kids are particularly squirmy with me but the eyes were the easiest because I guess they were nervous about me painting there so they didn't move at all!

I read somewhere on here that someone used an red net bag (that comes with "Cuties" a.k.a. Clementine tangerines) as a stencil so I saved my last net bag and used a lighter color on a sponge to pounce a couple of times. On the green, I used a lighter green and on the purple I used silver. The only problem with that is my daughter got all obsessed with using the bag as a stencil and used up some paint and a lot of my computer paper to "practice" doing it. LOL!

P.S. The green one got a little smudged especially around the mouth (as you can see) before I got photos.

Great idea for the orange bag! I was contemplating using a lingerie bag but think that it wouldn't get as good of an effect because of the lack of stiffness???

Here is a dragon that I enjoy doing.
Some times I make the body and tail longer.
I do it in green or black.
I have been known to get to worried about the hands and legs. Other artists ignore those and make it look more like a snake with wings and horns. I am just going to continue practicing. With the movie "How to Train Your Dragon" as a reference, I should get plenty of new ideas!

Cute little guy!
I also do the snake like dragon using an arty cake when a child wants it on the arm. I have yet to remember to get a pic & as often as I do it, I should.

IamGina - I LOVE that dragon! I haven't tried it yet, but it was painted with a TAG split.

anramire -- that is adorable!!! Sometimes for claws I draw a straight line, and the the ends are reverse teardrops. Works great with a Detailz wand... =)

Here is the tutorial for it. I hope this link works...It is a really quick design. She shows it on a little girl. I always outline everything that I do and add glitter. I like to talk to the kids and spend some time with them but the actual painting itself is not hard and is very quick. And, any time that I use the arty cakes to do stuff like dinosaurs, or alligators, lizards...you know the usual stuff. I always get lots of wows even from the really simple things like this mask design. I think that they add a lot of punch to the simpler designs.
On the "tribal for beginners" video at this link, do you or anyone know what kind of paper she is painting on?? It looks wipeable! I need something like this for practicing..... my girls can only handle so much.

She commented on youtube that she is just using a laminated piece of paper.

dragons attempted...

Post by aussiemarie on Sun May 01, 2011 9:44 pm

Hope to post my first dragons for a small local festival.....I had not planned to do them (barely any practice) but the boys begged and so I tried to do a design taught to me by Pam Trent at La Fete.


The boys really liked the design even though it was so primitive.

Umm..you may be a newb to face painting, but not to art. Those are amazing, I can do detailed stuff like that with colored pencils, or acrylics, maybe even oils but now with face paint. They are amazing. Along with your avatar. You rock cheers
