Hi from Melbourne. Australia.

Post by Helen Nelson on Sat May 07, 2011 8:18 am

How FANTASTIC is this forum.......

My name is Helen,I live in Melbourne and I'm just dipping my toes in the face painters waters.
I've been lurking for a few days reading and looking at galleries and I'm in awe of how amazing you artists are
I can only hope to be 1/2 as good one day, you are very inspirational.
It is also a great source of information too.

Wishing all Mothers a very happy day tomorrow :-)

Hi - I'm in Melbourne too! Northcote . . . we should organise a JAM one day . . . I'm pretty new at this too and yes the artists on this forum are AMAZING and inspirational. Also, if you practice and persist you will get there too! I find myself improving, no where near the level of our company of artists here, but it's little steps I keep telling myself . . . welcome!

Hello Helen and welcome. I hope you will love this journey as much as we all have and do.

Get some nice paints and a few good brushes and see what happens.

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody. I love what I am learning now and I know it's all about PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. I am finding that Face and Body artists are soooo generous with their information and tips and tricks - it's great that everybody is so willing to share. Aussie3070, Northcote is close to me...I'm in East Kew, perhaps one day a jam would be good - when i'm more confident though :-)
Happy painting
Helen

Hey Helen, Aussie3070 mentioned there was another Melburnian lurking. A get-together would be awesome, hey?! But I admit I would be a bit scared too, as I am only new facepainting as a serious thing as well. S'okay...we can be scared together! (I'm in Rowville, a bit further away but still quite closer)

Hi Rose and Kris10,
I've just found your comments here....real life has got in the way of watching and reading face paint forums :-)
Just by chance were either of you at course in Glen Waverly recently????
Beans....I have not "jammed" either - sounds a bit daunting but I'm sure it's not. Dianna at Looney Bin runs organised jams once a month on Wednesdays- she has one this coming Wenesday and I'm thinking about going. I've had good day today - 5 victims(children) who were willing to let me practice.....ha ha.....I even got to do designs that I wanted!

Helen!! I'm pretty sure we sat next to each other at Jenny's course and you painted my face with a beautiful flower design! Hello! How funny! You shouldn't feel daunted, you paint beautifully! I was half considering going on Wed to Diana's but I tend to freak out with other people there and can't paint worth a thing, so will probably chicken out! You can always come practice on my kids, there are 4 of the little tackers to attack! Laughing

Rose..yes it was me! How funny, small world isn't it?
I did go to the jam last wednesday and it was great...I didn't paint but I watched others, so inspired by Jenny who was there also. She painted a Minnie Mouse on my daughter and it was fantastic. You should go next time as everyone is very friendly and they are all there because they love painting. They are also so happy to help with any problems you may have.
I took my paints to a friends birthday today and because the first little girl wanted a swan and I then had to paint 6 swans.....couldn't even tempt them with anything else. I guess at least I should have perfected a swan! I had 2 boys about 8 an 10 who I had to paint as flower fairies - hilarious. They said they didn't want to be differnt as they were the only boys there! They looked very cute with pink flowers and lipstick.

I meant to say aswell Rose that I also have 4 children too - are yours over being painted? Mine have good days and bad days. The problem is when i want to paint they are not interested and when they want to be painted i don't have the time. Lucky they have lots of friends coming in and out and they are usually very happy to be painted.
