So wanted to give you all an update

Post by shandi on Wed Apr 06, 2011 3:09 pm

I did the opening of the season's local ball park and painted about 16 hours in 2 days dogs sick with a abcess in my sinus, ( not contageous) I used nothing but my Pardise/Wolfe/Snazz/liquid BenNye. I made a HUGE profit and am so grateful for it. I am practicing and practicing, getting used to using. I invested 100.00 of my profit into glitter tatts and a wonder pallet and refilled a few colors that look low in my Paradise pallet. I am now looking into a powder set of colors. Lumiere has been recommended.
I have a pretty big gig coming up on the 16th and will offer the glitter tatts. At least now I can offer the tatts when it's to bloody hot for face painting. Since 90 % of my clients are female I'm hoping by getting the powders I can continue to do my top sellers even in the heat and damp.
Just wanted you all to know, I left the acrylic home so no temptation.
You have proven that I can still make money using the cosmetic face paints.





I wanted to share the last two, I bought some of the small blending cakes from the shop here and never could decide how to use them, I made these with the round pouncer sponges, pretty cool and became very popular Smile

i made enough to get caught up on our house payment and put aside the 100 for supplies, it was a very long trying two days but I kept on painting knowing this was a blessing and God's favor helping us get caught up Smile

Wonderful news! I'm so happy for you! That is awesome about catching up on your house payments, and having some left over. I hope you are feeling better now. It is miserable to paint while feeling so bad, but it sounds like God got you through it. Smile
