Celtic designs - but not for St. Patrick's Day!

Post by ngervais on Wed Jun 15, 2011 9:20 am

Hi everyone,

I am booked to face paint at my city's annual Highland Games. It's quite a large festival with irish dancing competitions and all of the usual HIghland Games festivities and games (caber-tossing and at of that!) : )
Since it's a large festival and I am working alone I want to limit the choices that I'll offer people and wanted to add a couple of quick Celtic-inspired designs as well. Can anyone give me any good ideas? Think "Celtic" NOT St. Patrick's Day, so no leprechauns or 4-leafed clovers please!

Thanks so much!

Irish dancers are used to the clovers year round (both my girls are Irish Dancers)... but you can also look up some celtic knots. A lot of them would probably be very happy with some pretty eye designs... swirls and sparkles. Irish dancers are all about bling.

I did a celtic knot tutorial and some sample designs in a St Patrick's day monthly challenge last year... way easier than it looks when it's finished.
