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”.

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!

Halloween 2014 Recap

I finally had my last halloween themed event last night, and while it is a week past halloween, I’m always happy when friends help spread the spooky love out a little farther.  Check out some of the crazy things I painted this year…

Fa la la la Facepaint…

You have to love the holidays…. any holiday really, because they give me a reason to paint festive things that are only popular a short time of the year.  It keeps my painty fingers from getting bored with the same ol’ thing.  And the kids at all the holiday parties I paint at love them too!

Here are a few new Christmas designs on my board this year…

Do you have a Christmas party planned in the next few weeks you’d like to add some extra fun to?  Give me a call… I’d love to paint for you!!
