It’s Pumpkin Spice Face Painting Season!

OK, so face painting doesn’t actually taste or smell like pumpkin, but it is officially fall and that means FALL FESTIVAL SEASON is here!  As much as I love summer, I do love switching up my board of options for the fall… painting the same summertime favorites a million times gets a little boring.  But now it’s all new… check out these fun options and come get painted in your favorite at one of my upcoming festivals!

Not so cuddly…

Hello face paint fans!  Well it’s officially September and the summer is still hanging around.  I don’t know about you, but this summer has been CRAZY!  I wish I took the time to take more photos at events, but alas, I’m usually too busy to do it.  But I have managed to try a few new things lately that I thought you might like… these are the less than snuggly animals we all love.  Enjoy!

Conventions

FABAIC 2015

For those who aren’t familiar with the face painting world, FABAIC (the Face & Body Art International Convention) is THE face painting convention in the United States, and I had the pleasure of attending this year!  It was AMAZING!!!  Several hundred face and body painters from around the world, all in one room!  Here are just a few of my photos from the event.

My favorite thing I learned at the convention was painting gothic jewelry.  It is SO MUCH FUN to paint!  Check these out…

Another new trick I learned at the convention was how to paint graffiti style!  Super cool!  I need to keep practicing, but I hope this will be hit at festivals.

And the other first for me was entering a face painting competition!  I didn’t win, but it was really a rush to compete.  I am definitely looking forward to doing it again in the future!  The theme was “The Orient Express”.

Festivals

Riverfront Irish Festival

I had a great time at the Riverfront Irish Festival in Cuyahoga Falls earlier this month.  What a great venue for a festival!  I hope to be able to go back and do it all again next year.  Here are  few photos I snapped during the festival. I wish I had gotten more, but I was BUSY!  If you were there and took some photos of my face paintings please share them!

Spring Fever!

It’s FINALLY SPRING!!!  Oh man, that winter was a rough one.  I had a hard time getting motivated to try anything new when it hurt just to leave my house.  But now that the weather has broken I got the spring cleaning bug… and I don’t mean for my house!  Nope, time to clean up my business cards, banners, signage and marketing!  And to do that I needed to paint some seriously awesome new stuff.  So here you go… the latest, and definitely some of my greatest, works!  Plus a few behind the scenes sneak peeks for you!

Big thanks to my friend Kimberly for loaning her kids to me and their friends.  We had a fun day and the kids were a blast!

I hope you like them!  I can’t wait to paint YOU next!

Face Painting is COOL!

Who says face painting is only for kids?  Check out these totally hip teens (maybe even millenials?) I painted at a concert a few weeks back.  There were no design boards here… all freehand paintings to match their outfits!  I’m totally one of the cool kids now.  😉

My Little Ponies

I LOVE trying new designs… in fact my design book is constantly changing because every time I try something new I instantly want to add it to my selection for parties.  This weekend I have a birthday party with a special request… it’s a My Little Pony party!  I’ve been itching to try out these cuties forever, especially since the original MLP’s were my favorite toys as a girl!  So here you go… brand new and ready to make their debut this weekend!
