first real gig- suggestions

Post by srbolton on Fri Sep 16, 2011 3:36 pm

I am doing my first gig this weekend in which I am actually being hired hourly to come paint. It shouldn't be a big event, but probably 30-40 faces. What I am wondering about is that I feel as if I have forgotten something on my supply list. I have the paints, of course, glitter and brush cleaner, lots of brushes and sponges, Unscented baby wipes, my spray bottle, containers to keep clean water, brush rinse water, and used brushes and sponges in, the event is providing a table and I have a small poster of photos for the kids to choose their designs from, Business cards, hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes, gloves. I feel like there is something obvious I am missing, but cannot for the life of me figure out what it is.

Oh- and I have small dark hand towels to use as well. (see I am forgetting to put stuff even on the list of stuff I have)!

Also, I need advice from you experienced painters, how often do you change out your rinse water? and if you are outside and not near running water, do you just lug bottles of water in with you or what?

Excited!

You may want to bring a few plastic bags for trash. Sounds like you have mostly everything you need. Enjoy and post lots of pics afterwards
