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”.

Hello Halloween Lovers!!!

I know technically we still have a few days before the 31st, but for alot of the adult world, the weekend before Halloween is when the ghouls and goblins come out to play.  Lucky for them I’m always happy to paint them up as creepy and cool as they want to be!  Check out this weekends creations…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I hope you’ve all enjoyed your holidays as much as I have, and are ready to start a productive new year.  Did you make a new years resolution?  I’ve made my resolution to become more motivated this year.  So far I’m doing a fantastic job, and thanks to my new found motivation I have set myself a goal… I am going to practice my face painting every weekend this month.  Finding time to practice isn’t always easy, so now while it’s the slow season I’m going to make the effort to try out new designs and techniques.  This weekend I decided to try out some new mask designs.  These are so fun, and always unique to the event and person wearing it.  I’m excited to add some of these ideas to my bag of tricks for the upcoming Mardi Gras parties!
