You know you are a face painter when . . .

Post by fairyfox on Sun Apr 24, 2011 12:01 am

Come on everyone- I want to hear your endings to this sentence. Some that come to mind for me:

- after a full day festival, you find yourself staying up late into the night on the forum, because you just can't break away.

- it is normal to see movie characters walking around.

- your thumb and two fingers of your painting hand are always black.

- You pay Big money to go to the fair, but come home with more than you went in with.

- Parents bring you their screaming children, even when you are the reason they are screaming.


Let me hear what makes you feel like a painter!!!

- when you pick up your paints and your children run in the opposite direction.
- when you dream about swirls and teardrops
- when you pack your kit in your car before you leave to go a-n-y-w-h-e-r-e, just in case....

- The muscles on your painting arm are much more defined than the muscles on your other arm.

When a crowded park makes you smile

When reading the paper means you go straight to the ad in Michaels for 30% of all art supplies

When you look at a child and automatically imagine them with a facial design that matches their clothing.

When you've heard someone say "wow, he's never sat so still before" for the twentieth time in a single day.

When you blow your nose and glitter comes out. Shocked

When you've painted 8 solid hours without needing to use the bathroom.

When you get more 'looks' when you go into the supermarket not painted.

When you stay awake all night planning out your next painting.

When your spend all your down time browsing face painting web pages and you tube videos.

-you can't watch a kids movie without thinking about new designs.

-you turn around and walk back on your way out of the store to look at a dragon on a poster that you may want to paint for the FPF CONTEST.

- you watch the mail box like a hawk the day you think your paint order will show up

-You keep a sketch pad next to the bed in case you come up with something in the night
-You have a deep attachment to people you have never met due to FPF
-You see a pregnant belly and the very first thing that pops into your mind is 'canvas'!!!!!
-You see a group of children and all you see is 'canvas'!!!!
-You can't help looking at FP product EVEN THOUGH you know you don't need any right now and have to 'talk yourself down' from buying some 'just to try'.
-You go to an event and often mentally kick yourself for having been too lazy or run out of time to paint your own face.

- When you spend the money that you were supposed to be saving for tuition on more paints.

Definitely can relate to studying pics and dreaming about fixing and changing things! But that 200 kids day isn't a dream, it's a nightmare. Hahahaaaa...

-You vacum cleaner has more glitter in it then your kit.
- Your bath tub is a rainbow colour.
- You have the only kid in the city who is "over" face painting.
- You smile all the time because you have the best job in the world!

when you keep your old clothes far too long but have to buy the lastest face painting product.
Your house has glitter in every corner and on every chair.
Your fellow co-workers know when you did a gig when you come to work sparkling - make my day brighter anyways Very Happy
When your co-workers ask you - "Did you paint any one over the weekend"
All your conversations eventually are about your face painting buisnes - My daughter keeps saying to - "Gee mom really is that all you can talk about" Laughing

When you shave your legs and your husband knows that it's just so you have room to practise...

When you cringe at almost every halloween makeup attempt that you see...

And I'll throw this in there as a balloon twister one,
When your daughter's balloon at an event you're NOT working is yucky and her sister says, "don't worry, mommy will make you a better one when we get home." (true story)

Oh and another true sign.....

-Your bald husband goes to work with glitter on his head every day because it's all over the house and no one at his work even notices or comments anymore!
-you occasionally see a bit of glitter on food...and eat it anyways. And not think anything of it.

-When your thigh is shaved but your calves are not.
-When you walk around wishing you could show off the design under your jeans.
-When you wonder why people are looking at you with strange faces and smiling because you forgot you were painted.
-When you've heard things like "You smell good." "Why are your teeth so yellow?" "She's amazing" "That's the best face painting I've ever seen" "Yep. I want a rainbow. ...with a bee sliding down and a star on one end and a flower on the other end." "Did you paint your own face?" "Can you just do a black all over my face with white eyes?"
-When you take your kids to a big event (that you're not working) and all you can think about is checking out the face paint, how bad it is, and what kind of "paints" are they using?
-When your gardener wonders why there is glitter all over the back yard (from my glitter hat)
-When you have creepy dummy heads around your house
-When you have to offer candy to your kids to let you face paint them
-When you have face paint on the inside of your hats, shirts, and pants.
-When you call your neighbors and ask if they can please bring their kids over so you can paint them.
-When your friend posts "My daughter -'Mommy I want to go somewhere today.'
Me - 'Me too, but nothing is open today.'
My daughter - "Gina's is closed?"'
-When people assume you can paint anything because you can paint faces.

P.S. My friend calls glitter "the Herpes of craft supplies" because you can never get rid of it.
