Experienced belly painters: most popular designs?

Post by fezinafelina on Tue Aug 23, 2011 2:42 pm

Hey everyone! I'm branching out from face painting and including belly painting as a service I can offer. I am doing some mommies in my area for free so I can take pics and build up my portfolio. I was wondering is some of you experienced belly painters would share what your most popular designs are. I'm not trying to steal your design, just need a little direction for developing my own. Do most of your customers stick to simple stuff like a pumpkin, watermelon, basket ball, etc. Or do you find that the butterfly garden, family tree type stuff is what they ask for the most? Also, how long do you take to paint a belly? Any advice on what to charge?
TIA!!!

Here's what I did just so ppl could see what can be done. i posted on my facebook page "These are NOT my designs, but what other painter friends of mine have done." And that way, they get an idea of what it looks like and what the actual possiblities are and how unlimited they are. Since I've only done one in my life, I didn't have anything to show people. So that helped--just make sure you clarify that you didn't do the painting. People get unnerved about that. good luck!

Flowers and Butterflies!!

Although recently I have been working on a belly to build up my portifolio so I have been making the effort to do new and different things. Hopefully this will inspire people, and they can see that there is so much more than butterflies and flowers.

I personalize each and every belly i do. i don't offer set designs. i ask the mom to be questions, then do several designs , then let them choose. That way it is unique , just for them Very Happy I did a belly last week that involved a scene from the mom to be's cottage in Quebec. She loved it! I also did a belly for someone who is a pagan , she wanted the triple goddess symbol and spirals. That was fun to do as well. Belly's are my favourite canvas Very Happy

my neigbour is pregnant and I made a deal with her; I get to paint het belly as often as we both like; which will be about 4-5 times i guess. The other day I did a fire man (future daddy is one) and she wants a christmass tree-ball. The other times ik search for designs which are difficult for me so I can practice

The belly is as unique as the baby in it so I customize each one I do Smile mom's favourite animal was my last paint (elephants) ...ask mom lots of questions...I find the painting usually always reflects the mothers interests but I generally like to hold the creative license as to 'exactly' what I paint Smile
to start your portfolio, start off with something adapted from a design you have painted before on faces such as butterflies, then branch out & paint things that you like! Take LOTS of pics! edit the best one.. dont forget to add your name or company name to your photos Smile

For advertising purposes I'd say flowers, butterflies, sports local to your area, military themed, fairies, Winnie the Pooh or other nursery themes, tropical theme, holiday themes (Pumpkin for Halloween, Snow globes for Christmas, etc).

I love looking at painted plates on google. They give loads of ideas.
