I wanted to know if when you guys do an event and wear a design on your face, is that particular design usually requested alot?

Nope. Not at all. Don't know why... cause they are usally pretty nice. Just don't appeal to the kids - possibly because of all the other choices they have before them that are more "kid" oriented.

actually, the first painting event that I did I had two kids who asked to be a clown Wink Of course, it's different with face paints than grease paint and they were boys so I didn't do exactly my face on them Wink

I learned my lesson with this one. One time I painted something cool but not so quick on my face for a party and several kids wanted it Shocked .. Now I just put simple stuff on my face if any.

Yes!
I always paint my own face to sort of settle me before I start, plus its an advert/ disguise.

If I do anything flowery/ butterfly/ rainbow I tend to get asked for it by 1 out of every 3 girls. Not so much if I do other stuff to suit the theme of the party or event tho, go figure....what I hate is I always forget what I'm painted as so have to look in the mirror when they say 'can I have what you have', how dumb must i seem!

I always tell the ladies who work with me to paint a fave easy design on themselves as it tends to help people want to choose it...

Normally paint a swirly design around the eyes, or something to match the theme, and that is normally one of the most requested one during the day.

But the first design of the day I paint is normally not so good - my hand need to get started or something - so sometimes I feel it is not the best advertising for what I can do Sad

Great suggestions to paint your quickest, but most impactful design on yourself. Especially if you are doing a PPF gig. After all, we are trying to make the most money in the amount of time and how better.

I do a super quick rainbow one the forehead with clouds, burds and glitter that most of the kids love and it takes about 30 seconds. I will try and dig up a photo to share. This one is really handy when I am doing a job where no one will head the last call warning. "Everyone gets rainbows!" is what I shout when I have got about 20 kids to finish and about only 10 minutes.

I tend to try out new stuff on my own face and then when that design is requested (which it often is),I tell them it will be a variation on the theme just special for them.
