Back after over a week!

Post by Tilly - Formerly Punky on Mon Apr 04, 2011 12:24 am

Hey everyone! I've been gone for a little over a week an Wow do the posts sure pile up! I've been online most of the day catching up with what everyone's been up to!

I was dealing with school stuff and the was away at the Clown Forum Spring Fling and I had a blast! Had a number of evening face painting and balloon jams and got to catch up with old friends I hadn't seen in a good while.

One new thing they had this year was the Gala show where some of the staff put on a show for the general public. Well, I didn't know about this and so didn't have my clown outfit with me to dress up, but I did have my paints and was the only painter there willing to do face painting for the audience for about 30 - 45 minutes before the show. I didn't know at the time that I was the only one who would be painting and anticipated a large crowd for the free face painting and so didn't use my design book that I just finished for this season. Insead, I painted up my arms (yes, both arms! I painted with my left hand and was shocked at how well it came out!) and threw on a quick eye design.

I only packed my small kit for jams.. so I only had about half my normal amount of paint, only TEN sponges.... TEN!!! and I didn't have my director's chair... Luckily someone else brought theirs and I was able to borrow it. I don't know what I'd have done without that thing! I've been painting with my director's chair so long I can't paint a gig without it anymore. I was rather worried about what I'd do if I ran out of sponges as I don't re-use sponges and had no way of washing them quickly... but luckily didn't have to worry about that (insert sigh of relief here)

I was all ready with a list of about 15 -20 quick line movers that I keep stored up in my noggin for tight situations and then only had maybe 8 kids get painted... and all of them girls, lol. they all wanted my eye design in different colors except three... 1 who wanted my quick kitty 2 who wanted butterflies. One just wanted a one eye butterfly the other wanted a whole face butterfly.

I was a little disappointed that none of the boys wanted to get painted... I was so ready to do a quick spiderman mask, a puppy, a simple version of my skull and tiger... anything! but only the girls wanted to be painted. Oh well, I still had a great time and the staff what thrilled they had more than just balloons for pre-show entertainment for the kids.

I had a great time and really look forward to it next year.

Lol you guys, Punky girl is just fine by me Very Happy . And yeah, I sponge so much now as compared to when I first started out painting that if I run out of sponges for a day my booth basically get shuts down Shocked I refuse to reuse used sponges before they've gone through the wash. I was worried because I figured in that 30 - 45 minutes, I knew I'd be able to get 10 - 15 kids through.... but with only ten sponges... there was a distict possibility of running short. I cling to my sponges like life when I go on a job, I feel naked and useless without them, lol. Luckily the crowd was not as big as we thought it would be so everything worked out okay Very Happy

And yeah maggie, I didn't get pics of my left hand work, but it looked pretty good, almost like my right hand work! Only thing is though... my quick little 1-2 minute designs I put on my right arm took me about 3-4 times longer to paint to make them look so good, lol.

Lol you two! When Perry and I first met she said she was always reminded of Punky Brewster too.... though I have no idea what that is.... confused

But, I too can't stand the new disney shows... they're really stupid... HOWEVER, I am in LOVE with Phineas and Ferb. I'm saving up for my Perry the Platypus t-shirt ^_^
