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”.
