Preparing for a Jungle Themed Party

Post by Denise Cold on Tue Aug 30, 2011 5:37 am

I got my practice head today and I'm prepping for a jungle themed party in the middle of September. I had some really cute eye designs going but then I decided it might be easier and more WOW to do full face (or mask versions) of the jungle animals.

I'm getting them down to 3 minutes! There were only a couple (cheetah & hippo) that were a little over 4 minutes but I was thrilled that I might be able to provide full face where I thought I was going to do cheek art.

These are the "rough sketches" to see how fast I can do them but I'm sure the quality will get better as I do them again.

Wow, they're great! Very simple but effective and easy to recognize! Just to add a "BUT", I would change the zebra's stripes (I thought it was a white tiger at first sight Embarassed ). Maybe something like this: (sorry, I found it on Google and I couldnīt find the painter's name):



Well, it's just an idea.

I had a jungle themed birthday party early on in my FP career (a little less than a year ago) and I went all out trying to come up with as many designs as possible. I didn't even offer any other designs. Here are photos of what I came up with. Of course, they almost all wanted the parrot.

You guys are really talented. I love all the designs. I got a second call for a jungle/animal theme for that week too so I'm so grateful for the ideas. One is more a of an intimate birthday so I can spend a little more time on those.

I like the lion Gina, I'm having trouble with that. The parrot is cute but does it take a long time?

I want to do that cool Anaconda Linda...did you use the laundry bag or orange bag for the skin?

Thanks for the help. It's just a few days away so I'm going to try some of these.

I used a stecil I made out of fishnet stockings for the snake head, but an orange bag would do the same thing. I laid the darker base & then used gold over it w/ the stencil.
