Hi! finally found u guys!

Post by barefootbutterfly on Tue Jan 04, 2011 1:26 am

Hi, my name is carolyn... I joined the group a while back but forgot how to get to it,lol.. so I finally found y'all again so Im bookmarking & hope to become more of an active member.
Ive been facepainting for a while... about 22 yrs since i first layed brush to skin at a local festival. I am a nail tech in my day job & face & body paint on the weekends & evenings. I paint on lots of other things to & have a brain that goes a mile a minute with hands that can't go quite that fast Smile
I have 3 kids (that are sick of me painting on them,lol) & am a lucky girl who has a super wonderful boyfriend that supports my artsy side completely..
i live in Chilliwack, BC Canada (about an hour & a half outside Vancouver where the 2010 Winter Olympics were last Feb)

thats about it.. my website can be found at www.barefootbutterfly.com
Hope to get to know as many people as i can, learn & help if i can!
Cheers!

Thank you so much Carolyn!
Colors are all
dfx white
dfx black
dfx sea green
dfx essential green light
dfx metallic green

The lips are a mix of the metallic green with a little white, It turned neon...amazing combination.
BTW I tried this with another metallics thinking I discovered how to make neons but it failed LOL

The DFX colors are wonderful wonderful - what I have on my avatar. Aren't they vivid?

But I ended up going with Paradise for my kit for ease of washing off young faces - but oh, do I salivate over the DFX colors. If I go to FABIAC in 2012 you know I'll have to be stocked up (if nothing else so I don't get skewered by Shannon ;-P)

Thanks Maggie! i don't have the sea green or the green light but i will have to add them to my next order Smile
& yes pixieface.. I know what you mean about the DFX colors but they look sooooo good & are so durable! I just tell the parents to wash the kids faces with warm soapy water & a washcloth they don't mind getting dirty,lol
because i paint my 8 yr old daughters face so much, I throw her in the shower & use Johnson's tear-free shampoo to get the paint off with a cloth then if a teeny bit gets in her eyes its not so bad. cyclops

Hey Carolyn, I have an 8 year old daughter too Very Happy She loves to facepaint as well and rarely lets me paint her anymore. My 5 year old is even worse. Maybe when the weather gets better we could meet at a park and let the kids get to know each other and we could jam.

Sounds great! I'm lucky, my best friend has two boys 5 and 8 and they let me practice boy designs on them still. The little guy is my favourite model. He cries when they wash off his dragons.
