Let’s hear it for the BOYS!

Well folks, I made it to the end of my goal… I practiced new designs each weekend this month!  I have to say, it has been super fun trying new things!  I can’t wait to get these in my book for kids to choose at upcoming parties.  Not only did I practice new things, but I painted at some really awesome parties too!  This weekends plan was to paint new BOY designs…. Let me know what you think!

Now I know this is supposed to be all about boy designs, but I couldn’t resist trying out some new girl super hero’s too!

Nose Art!

Hello again art lovers!  I am so excited to show you what I learned this week!  Not only did I take time to practice, but I got to attend a fantastic workshop and learned a new painting style!  It was  SO fun… I love taking classes to learn new techniques, but this was one of my favorites.  We learned how to cartoon on the face, AND how to make our art ANIMATED!  These fun designs move with your face so when you scrunch, bunch, twist or expand your forehead and mouth the characters look like they’re moving.  I hope I get to paint one of these guys on you soon so you can see how fun they are!  I’d love to hear what you think!

Nose Bunny

This one is only half done because we needed to move on in class to the next cool thing.

Nose Duck

Nose Monkey

This bat is my own original design, based on what we learned in class.  I think he’s pretty awesome.  🙂

Here is a fun cartoon style heart design!  I think this one will be pretty popular.

And here are some practice eyeballs on my arm… I like the black eye the best… can’t wait to put those on a character soon!

So what do you think?  Do you like the new style?  I do have to admit, painting these guys on yourself is TRICKY!  Hopefully I’ll be painting them on some younger faces soon.  🙂

The Spooky side of Halloween

Tonight I spent some time working out new designs for this weekends fall festivals.  As much as I love the super gory side of Halloween, sometimes less scary and more SPOOKY is fun too!  Can’t wait to paint these on all the kiddos this weekend!

This one is great for the wee little ones!

This is me attempting to make a scary face… I obviously need more practice!

Green Monsters!

I’ve been painting alot of GREEN lately!  Fun monsters and snakes make very fun face paintings!  Take a look at some of these cool and creepy transformations…

Hot times, summer in the city….

Hello again!  So it’s getting HOT right?  And we all know heat makes SWEAT, and sweat makes facepaint a little runny.  BOO!  Well great news… you can still get all colorful and painted at that outdoor party without worries… I can paint YOUR ARMS!  (Or legs, or back, etc).  It’s still fun and makes for cool pictures!  Check out some of these from last weekends birthday party…

 

And have you thought about Glitter Tattoos at your next party??  This is a huge hit with kids and adults, great for graduation parties!!  There’s no paint involved, and these beauties will last 4-5 days!  No worrying about sweating them off or smudges from sticky fingers.  It’s the perfect solution to those backyard BBQ’s!

Got questions?  Want to book a party?  Give me a call at 216-990-5929!

Kids Town Family Night

I had a great time yesterday painting for the Kids Town Family Fun night!  Here are just a couple pictures from the event…

And last but not least…

New Design Time!

Sorry it’s been a while since my last post, things have been busy busy busy!  I can’t wait to tell you about the new project I’m working on… soon I’ll post the details on my newest adventure in face & body painting!  For now though, here are just a few of the latest new designs offered in my book…

NEO Face Painters Guild

Did you know that besides just being a professional face painter, I am also the Vice President of the North East Ohio Face Painters Guild, which is a professional organization of face painters in this region.  We meet every month on the first Wednesday of the month at the Home Town Buffet in Parma, near the corner of Snow rd. and Broadview rd.  This is a way for me to network with other painters, share tips and tricks, and also take some time to practice new designs.  And as a bonus to you… we paint the patrons of the restaurant for FREE from 5:30 – 7:30 each time we’re there.  Mark your calendars for next month and come in for dinner and get the kiddos painted!

Here are a few of the new designs I worked on at our February meeting…

Chinese New Year Designs

I’ve been working on new designs specifically for the Chinese New Year Festival I’m painting at today.  Come see me from 11-5 at the Asian Town Center located at 3820 Superior Ave., Cleveland, OH 44114.  There’s entertainment all day long with dance performances, martial arts demonstrations, the traditional Lion Dance and fireworks!  Try some yummy food and get your face painted by me!  See you there!
