New Spring Things

Happy Summer!  (Finally!)  Now that it’s hot and humid it’s time for all the fun festivals and outdoor activities.  I’m excited to be a part of three amazing festivals this year…  The Cleveland Asian Festival, which was in May.  And the upcoming Cuyahoga Falls Irish Riverfront Festival and Cuyahoga Falls Festa Italiana.  Fun Fun!!!

So here are a few new designs I cooked up this spring.  It’s always good to add new ideas to the board, especially for festivals where I get alot of repeat clients each year!  I hope to see you out at one this summer!

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!

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!

Introducing NEW WATER RESISTANT Face Paints!

Hello painty people!  I have some VERY EXCITING NEWS to share with you today!  I have just added a brand new product to my face painting arsenal, and it might be the coolest thing since sliced bread… Water Resistant Face Paints!  That’s right folks… I can now paint your face, and you can cannonball into a pool without any worry about ruining that beautiful design!  Don’t believe me?  Check out this video to see it in action!

This revolutionary new product will stay put in water, but will wash off with liquid soap or baby oil, making clean up a breeze!  Check out these new designs specifically for the Hybrid paints…

Frozen Fascination!

Are your kids constantly singing “Let it Go”?  Is Olaf the new name of every stuffed animal in the house?  Have you been asked lately if you want to build a snowman?  If you know what I’m talking about then your kids are probably just as obsessed with Frozen as my step-daughter!  Well Elaborate Eyes is here to help!  Plan a Frozen themed party for those sing-songy kids and I’ll turn them into ice princesses and snow monsters!  They’ll be the envy of ever kid on the playground when they show their friends pictures of themselves painted “just like Elsa!”.  Check out my new Frozen face paintings, and call or email me to book your theme party!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

My happy thoughts are a tad belated, but I do hope you had a fun day being Irish!  I had fun painting lots of people of all ages, and got some great photos to share.  Hopefully I’ll be painting YOU green next year!

ENJOY!

Prepping for St. Paddy’s Day!

It might still be mostly white in Cleveland, but in 10 short days everyone will be thinking GREEN!

Everyone is Irish on Saint Patricks Day, so why not get yourself painted by yours truly and show off that Irish pride!  I am excited to announce that I will be painting faces at Mavis Winkles in Independence again this year!  Come out for a full day of festivities, Irish food, and face painting!  Plus they will be offering shuttle service downtown starting at 11 am if you want to go see the parade, but don’t want to deal with the crazy traffic and hefty parking fees!

Mavis Winkles is located at 5005 Rockside Rd, Cleveland, OH 44131

A few new designs…

Recently my niece came over for a sleep over, and the very first thing she said to me was “Aunt Amanda, can you paint my face?”.  So the next day before heading out to the mall I let the girls pick whatever they wanted out of my extremely large collection of inspiration images… and of course my niece just wanted to be a cat.  A black cat to be specific, because she’s into “natural fur colors” now.  I had to haggle with her a bit, but finally talked her into letting me add some gold so she could be a Calico kitty, and I could still try out a new design.  We were both quite happy with the results!

And my step-daughter just wanted something pretty… which I always love to paint!

And my last new design for today… Unfortunately I’m usually not able to take photos of my paintings at parties, but every once in a while I try to snap a few, especially when I try something new on the fly.  This little darling was ADORABLE and made a super cute Dalmatian puppy… but was too squirmy to get a good picture!  But it’s still cute, and makes me want to try this design again.

With the winter months ahead being my slow season, hopefully I’ll have time to play with more new designs soon!  Check back to see my latest works!
