In this specially crafted face painting session, couples will learn the fundamentals of face painting and then contextualise their new skills in actual designs eg. butterfly, tiger. It is entirely up to you if you paint each other or utilise my practise boards! Throughout the session, prosecco will flow and you will be treated to a selection of artisan chocolates. *Non-alcoholic and vegan alternatives available on request.*

Each session is 2 hours and held at my home studio in Clarendon Park. Come and celebrate Valentine’s day in a truly unique and memorable way, instead of the usual dinner in a restaurant. Any questions, please just ask!

Face Painting Training | Leicester & beyond!

face painting training 9Last week I had the pleasure of teaching this wonderful, talented lady how to face paint! She booked in for 2 sessions of 3 hours, during which we covered tear drops & tiger stripes, dots and swirls, double dipping and of course one stroke painting!

My face painting training sessions are designed to be a wholly enjoyable, hands-on learning experience. I myself learn best by doing, rather than just watching, and that’s exactly what we do in my lessons. I demo all the basic techniques on my arm or board, then my clients repeat what I’ve shown them.

This lady absolutely nailed everything I showed her! She made it seem so effortless and it was such a joy to watch her pick up brand new techniques with such ease.

After practicing brush technique and all the strokes that compromise a multitude of designs, we contextualize the new skills into specific designs  – rainbow butterfly, spiderman, princess, tiger, then using one stroke painting we create flowers, snake, dinosaur, unicorn and dolphin.

Her dolphin in particular was just awesome. I was super impressed!

face painting training 8 v2After the session she emailed these beautiful words, which just made my day –

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for teaching me so brilliantly! It has been a pleasure to meet you and am so grateful for all your face painting wisdom. I actually had a chance to practise today and I feel like I’m getting better already!”

My classes can be taught 1-2-1 or in small groups, depending on your budget. My next full day group workshop is Saturday 26th January in Leicester.  If you’d like to reserve a spot, please get in touch! Or if you’re interested in 1-2-1 training drop me a message at livilollipopfairy@gmail.com.

Look forward to hearing from you.livi signature

Face Painting Training | Leicester

Moving into 2019 I’m all about the face painting teaching! Training others to face paint is one of the highlights of my job.

Two students learning how to do ‘one-stroke’ rainbows for the first time!

We always start with the basics – the ‘fundamentals of face painting’ – which includes teardrops, swirls, dots and tiger stripes. It took me years of practise to perfect my teardrops so it’s amazing to see some students nail them after such a short time!

Also essential for any girly face painting design is double dipping! This effect is perfect for florals and princesses. In my face painting class I’ll show you how to achieve this, the best brush to use and the best paints to use.

During my longer face painting training sessions we also delve into the essential ‘tips and tricks’ of face painting – ‘one stroke’ painting! I am still in love with one stroke face painting, as the effects achieved are just amazing and can be done super quickly with time and practise.

My face painting course can be taught 1-2-1 or in groups of 2, 3 or 4 people. I offer one hour taster sessions right through to 6 hour intensive day workshops. Courses are currently held at my home in Clarendon Park, Leicester.

Taster | Fundamentals of Face Painting!

Good afternoon! After a chat with a friend recently about my face painting training, I’ve decided to have a little re-jig of how I structure the lessons. The aim is to make the classes more accessible for more people – financially and creatively!

I am now offering a Taster session – ‘The Fundamentals of Face painting’ – for those of you brand new to face painting or for people who just want to try out a new fun creative activity!

face painting lesson 1 no price

This session is one hour long and can be taught 1-2-1 or in small groups of up to 4 people. The focus will be on tear drops, swirls and dots –  of which most face painting designs are comprised – and we’ll put these into practise using a butterfly and spiderman designs!

My taster session can then be followed up with an intermediate class – entitled ‘Tiger’ – where we’ll look at achieving the perfect tiger stripe! We’ll also look at ‘double dipping’ (how to create two tone petals) and start to utilise ‘one stroke’ painting. To contextualise your new skills we’ll create a Tiger face and a princess.face painting lesson 2 no price

In addition to these two sessions, I will then be offering a 2 x 2 hour ‘one stroke’ painting class! You will learn what brushes to use, how to load them, and how to create flowers, leaves and fantasy creatures!

face painting lesson 3 no price 2

The first part of this face painting class will look at one stroke flowers and one stroke leaves, which can be used to create beautiful eye designs and arm art. You’ll then have a choice of what you’d like to create: unicorn, dolphin, snake and dinosaur.

face painting lesson 4 no price

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! I look forward to hearing from you. livilollipopfairy@gmail.comlivi signature
