Lets talk about HALLOWEEN!

While I’m sad to see summer go, I am always excited for the most magical time of the year to begin…

The only time of year when everyone plays dress up and pretend all together!  It is also the absolute BEST holiday for picture taking!!  So why not take this years costume a step further and REALLY get into character… with paint!

I am happy to announce that this year I will be taking appointments to paint people into character for the main party night, Saturday October 29th.  I will be booking by the 1/2 hour beginning at 10 am and taking my last appointment at 5:30pm.  Each 30 minute spot will be $50.  Longer periods of time may be available, and can be determined by the type of design you are looking for.

What can be done in 30 minutes?  For instance: a full zombie face with 3D FX like torn flesh.  A full character face, plus hands and shoulders (like the hulk or other comic book character).  Elaborate masks for a masquerade ball, or monster faces and hands.

Is your vision bigger than just the face?  NO PROBLEM!  We can discuss your idea and determine how much time will be needed.

BOOK SOON before my time runs out!  Last year I had dozens of calls the last 3 days before Halloween and had to turn them all away.  Don’t be left out this year!

I am also available on Friday the 28th for a private booking or appointments, and also on Monday October 31st to get the kiddies ready for trick or treating, or to help entertain at a community Halloween event.

Contact me for more information!!

College Craziness

Ahh the College years… when you’re old enough to do whatever you want, and still too young to think you’re too old to do things!  It’s a magical time.  Check out some of the fun ideas these college elite came up with for their face paintings.  They get huge points for creativity!

Making a Mermaid Princess

Hello art lovers!  I know my site has been boring for a while, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been out painting up a storm!  Typically at a gig I am too busy to actually take pictures of my work, so when someone takes them for me it is a rare treat.  Especially these amazing pics by photographer Brian Palmer, who captured his daughters experience really beautifully.  I can’t wait to paint for his company again this winter so he can take some more awesome photos of my work!  Take a look…

Happy Birthday Ethan!

I had a great time last week painting for lucky birthday boy Ethan, who requested to be a zombie!  It was  super fun party with great kids who were all smiles.  :)

Busy Busy Busy…

Hello art lovers… Well it has been a crazy busy few weeks in my face painting world!  I’ve got lots of great new pics to share with you, but alas, no time to get them web ready!  For now, how about this awesome photo from the Berea News Sun, taken at last weeks Grindstone Festival.  What a great shot of the happiness brought by face painting!

Where’s Amanda Painting this time?

TEXT-WHERES-AMANDA

Well it’s officially summertime and the start of a fun holiday weekend!  I hope you have lots of fun plans for these sunshine filled few days!  I myself will be up to my elbows in paint!  Besides a few private parties each day, I am also painting at two very fun events… if you don’t already have your plans set for the weekend definitely try to fit one (or both!) of these into your schedule:

FRIDAY & SATURDAY June 1st & 2nd @ The UniverSoul Circus
100 Euclid Square Mall, Euclid Ohio
I will be painting before and during tonights show @ 7:30, and tomorrow at the 4pm and 7:30pm shows.
Everyone loves a circus!

SUNDAY June 3rd @ Bereas Grindstone Festival
11 Berea Commons, Berea Ohio – Festival is at Coe Lake, behind City Hall
I will be painting from 4-6pm in the pavilion by the lake.  A portion of my procedes will be donated to the Berea Welfare Fund.

And as always, feel free to call me to book your own event or pass on an idea of somewhere you think would benefit from having a face painter on call!

So come on out and get yourself painted and maybe be the next star model on my blog!  I hope to see you soon!

Grad Night Paintings

I’d like to wish my friend Katie a big congratulations on graduating highschool this year… I remember when she was just a tot!  I had the pleasure of painting at her party this past weekend and got some fun pics to share.  Some of these are new designs and will be added to my book soon!

If you are planning a special event party and want to add some fun to the festivities, give me a call!
