When you've got nothing to do and think about stalking out that easter egg roll hunt down the street to see who the actual painter is.....

When your pet (my kitties) is walking around with glitter on their fur (due to me hugging/petting them or them rubbing up on me)

When you open a drawer in you bedroom and there are extra paint and empty paint holders with lids taking up space

When you have a closet filled with balloon supplies, glitter tattoos, a couple of crazy hair/yarn falls, a wig, a couple of aprons, alchohal, mini spray bottles, wax paper (to practice on), etc...

When your directors chair is permanantly in your car.

When you have a bathroom towel dedicated to face paint removal

When you walk in a craft store and cant resist walking away without buying bling or a "new" way to set up your paints...

just thought I'd throw in there about the dedicated towels.... the cheap baby wash cloths at the dollar store are awesome for this.... $1 for 6 and they are thin and soft.

Oh my God, I can relate to all of these!
Here's one (for body painting):

when my mother insists that I carry my glitter kit every where we go just in case she might want yet another glitter tattoo on top of the 5 she already has.

when my daughter will let me paint her ONLY if she can paint me first

when it's not bad enough you leave glitter all over your own house....but when you start leaving glitter trails at other peoples houses....oh yeah I can see tamara was here

when your are already packed for a convention that doesn't happen for another month...sighhhhhh

when you just wanna go up to the person you see with awful facepainting...and tell them do you know how bad you look...but hey I can fix that.....but you just look trying to conceal your disbelief that someone actually let them leave the chair looking that way

LOL to whomever posted about the conversation......I can find a way to turn any conversation to facepainting.............. I liken it to the 6 degrees of separation.

All things at some point will have to do with facepainting...lolol

Hahaha how recognisable....

I know I'm a facepainter when my son says, mom aren't you too old for that butterfly??
When you can't go to bed because the FPF came up with new ideas....
When you want a new suitcase (max) although the old one is still great.
When I go to my job as a make-up artist with my nails all dirty because I can't get the paint off!
When you clean all those runny noses to get space for the design you want.

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).

Perry---TOO FUNNY!!

And:
When you get home and go to wash your hands and realize why everyone at the grocery store (after your gig) was looking at you weird....because your face was covered with smudges!

I'm with Gina. Now that I know what it is, I have serious FatMax envy.

Some more...

*When everyone you look at has a hidden design that fits their face perfectly.
*Everything I look at gives me some kind of inspiration...ie: flooded roads mean cool sparkles on the water..lol
*Every spare penny is being saved for supplies
*All the neighborhood kids LOVE coming over..to visit the Mom
*My dear hubby is starting to question my sanity

When you spend time trolling the toolbox/fishing tackle/electrician gear aisles and have salesmen come up and ask you A) if you need help, B) if you're buying a present for someone and C) what exactly you do with a toolbox

When you have mom's run after you in the parking lot/grocery store because you have your face painted and they want a card!

When you get a request for something that's not in your book, but you can still do a great job of it because of a class/photo you've taken/seen/posts on FPF (this was me yesterday with a dozen teens!)

-when you log into a video chat with your other friends who are off to other colleges and the fact that you are still painted from a FPF challenge doesn't phase them one bit... and they don't even say anything. (true story) LOL

-you feel the need to lecture that craft paint bimbo across the way from you about how dangerous her product really is... but you don't because you want to be polite and not stir up trouble.

-when a child 9repeat customer) gets all excited because a previous design you did on them is one of the pictures on your board and they feel like celebrities, and their parents just beam with pride!

(And LOL at the glitter up the nose/everywhere else! totally relate to that and everything else!)

(okay, correction... i don't have kids, so I can't relate to the kid running from the parents who want to paint them... but I can relate with pretty much everything else! lol!

all so right! Wink

and my husband hates when he finds glitter everywhere in the house...

or on his plate if we have to eat! Laughing


when you paint yourself when you go out...(hubby and kids declare you insane..)

when you get that package at the door (containing new supplies offcourse! Wink) from the mailman

when everything you see could be used in your new design

When scrap booking gems are treated like gold nuggets.

When after Halloween sales break your bank account.

When you buy oranges just for the bag they're packaged in.

When a trip to Michaels makes you feel like a kid who took a trip to Toys-R-Us.

When things that never used to interest you, like photography, hair styling, and costuming now have you endlessly completing your "You Tube" education so you can use it for you next piece.

when you are painting a kid and the other kids are so close you are able to kiss them. (I pucker up and they back up fast!)

when a girl says to you "I want a butterfly that's pink and blue and purple and orange and yellow and green and red."

when a girl says "can you paint my lips again" for the 3rd time.

when your daughter says "I think my friends like you better Mom" Sad

these are so funny, especially the glitter up the nose!

when you're sunburned with a backache and you don't even care because the gig was so much fun

when your front door is open during carnaval and (adult)people line up to get painted

when you stare at other painted faces and try to memorise every line, drop, swirl
and then at home you forgot and it frustrates you
