It’s been a while! I’ve been busy busy painting things that don’t wash off and shifting my focus to teaching face painting.
Training ladies to face paint is something I love doing! We work on a 1-2-1 basis from my home in Clarendon Park, Leicester and concentrate mainly on brush technique and one stroke painting. In my sessions we cover tear drops, double dipping, tiger stripes, one stroke flowers and princess crowns, butterflies, tigers, spiderman, hulk etc etc I can tailor my sessions to what my client is looking to learn.
Client learning ‘double dipping’ for the first time!
There’s nothing more heart-warming than seeing someone who has never really painted before suddenly be able to produce a one stroke flower and perfect tear drops!

Clients leave the session feeling more confident and more inspired. I always take photos during the classes of our work and email these afterwards, along with a list of suggested kit items and recommended brands.

We focus lots on pretty girly designs but have plenty of time for boys designs too!

A little while ago the designer of FAB wipeable boards kindly donated me some of her boards to play with! I wasn’t sure at first due to the texture obviously being different from skin, and the paint does take a long time to dry on them, but now I absolutely love them! They’re awesome for planning and creating new designs and an amazing tool for teaching face painting.
This is one of my favourite designs I’ve ever done, albeit pretty simple! Loooove the rainbow colours and mandala inspired design, and loved it even more when I got to paint it on my beautiful pink-haired sister, with a colourful clown twist!
Another day at the ‘office’ for me! Getting ready for another face painting teaching session in Leicester I restocked my homemade one strokes and rainbow cakes.
Absolutely adore this colour combo:
Cameleon Bollywood pink (my absolute favourite colour!), TAG magenta, Cameleon banana yellow, TAG lime green, FAB deep ocean, DFX essential blue
And once the paints are made up, this is what can be done! The possibilities are endless – rainbow butterflies, one stroke rainbows, rainbow fairies and more! Embellishing/ texturing designs with stencils makes them look extra special. This star stencil is made by BAM.
Can’t wait to create some new face painting designs for my next face painting training session, coming up really soon! Bye for now,
Absolutely loving getting creative and planning designs on these boards! Playing with different colour combos and mixing up my butterflies.
