Hay guys I have a little project that I am working on at the moment that I wanted to share with you. For those of you that don’t know, I am a face painter in my spare time and although I have some basic faces down I wanted to add a few more to my arsenal. Now to make sure this gets done I need to be organised and motivated so I have set my self a challenge. I have decided that I am going to learn a new face every week for the next 8 weeks. There are some criteria for these faces; they have to take under 5mins to paint and they have to be part faces ie not painting round the mouth. This is primarily because I have noticed that children have to eat and drink and when they do said things they tend to wipe their mouths with the back of their hands, and then …………..well you can guess what is left of a lovely (water based) face. I find that faces that are concentrated anywhere except the mouth last longer throughout the day thus are more value for money. I also much prefer the over all look of a part face. I think the effect of the paint and seeing some skin is much more visually appealing, but that is of course just my opinion.
(I must apologise for the gormless expression and the fact that I am in my PJ's)
So here it is, my first NEW face and I have to say I love it! It appeals to every part of my girly nature. It has an abundance of colour and rainbows and stars are my ultimate childhood fantasy reminding me of Care Bares, Rainbow Bright and My Little Pony. This mixed with glitter (not on the picture) is definitely a face I would have wanted as a child, I can’t kid you, it’s a face I want now!
This picture was my second attempt at this face and it’s not quite down in 5mins yet but this is what I will be practicing all week until I’m seeing it in my sleep.
I hope you all like this and if anyone has any suggestions for some part faces let me know.
