Another Newbie, from downunder! Perth infact! Hey there...

Post by larissa1977 on Mon Mar 28, 2011 9:16 am

Hi yall!!! Or Should I say g'day maties! (or matie potatie.. is another one i use)

Well I'm seeking all advice available with regard to..... Face Painting (of course, LOL Smile!!)

I am a stay at home mum (mom) of 2 beautiful girls. I've been face painting the kids at my local park for experience for the last 18 or so months (and have done a couple of parties in that time) plus I'm the only one crazy enough to turn up to my families kids parties in a fairy suit and face paint the kids, which mind you, always turns out to be a hit! (I'm a beautician so working on peoples faces doesn't phase me!) always been quite interested in theatrics so it's my inner child working i guess Smile

I'm hoping to set myself up with a part-time job doing this as i get sooooo much enjoyment out of it and of course so do the kids and big kids too.... It's so rewarding!

I am currently using Derivan paints but I've been looking at TAG and also Snazaroo.. any tips out there?? I have been looking at youtube for some hints and well, there's just so many I just don't know where to start, so any advice is good advice!!! Things are done a bit different down under, as usual, but we generally follow after the US, so I'm open all ears (that is happy to hear it!)

Hope to chat soon... kind regards, Larissa1977 Smile x Rolling Eyes Very Happy

Welcome aboard! I recommend switching from Derivan although you might be able to shed some light on another Derivan related topic on the forum!
I use and recommend TAG and Kryolan, theres a bit of strife at the moment regarding neon colours so til it gets sorted avoid them.
This is such a fantastic forum - everybody rocks!!

Gidday & welcome to this fun loving group. I highly recommend TAG paints you can get them in WA at www.limelightco.com.au they also hold face painting workshops/courses. Once you've tried TAG you'll never go back to Derivan. Your gonna love it here, it's such a wealth of information & support. cyou round the forum
