How long should it take to paint a belly?

Post by creativefunfaces on Wed Jan 25, 2012 8:57 am

Hi, I am new here. I have been professionaly face painting for a year now, and want to expand my business to do belly painting. I am curious how long it takes most people to do their work. I know its about 5 min for a face or so, but have no idea with the face. I will be painting my sisters pregnant belly in Feb. I know it most likely depends on detail, but I was wondering what everyones adverage time is. Question
Thanks so much

It took me 40 minutes on my first belly. I was able to add a lot of detail in that time. Using a kabuki brush for the base colour really sped things up, I think. My thread is just a few below this one, check it out if you want an idea of detail vs. time!

Thanks, Thats great. I love the purple back ground color.
I just sketched the design out today. I like the way it looks on paper, I hope it looks just as nice on paper.
Thanks for all the help! Smile

Most of my bellies are at least 2 hours long but that is usually as they want enough detail etc for a photoshoot. Glitter Tattoos (or paint) can be faster, it just depends what they want.

Its totally up to you; if I'm doing it on a stall, they would be 10 minutes or less!

Just make sure you use way bigger brushes than for faces or your design gets lost and looks all silly and spindly.
