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!

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 training – 1-2-1 in Leicester

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.

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.

On-the-job boys face painting!

I’m definitely more comfortable with pretty, frilly, flowery girly designs so always feel a little fear when a boy sits down requesting typical boys face paint ideas. Always looking to improve my superheroes, I’m still trying to develop my designs to ones I’m content and comfortable with. Copying characters however, is something I’m ok at so enjoyed doing this Pokemon/ Pikachu design recently, at a sweaty party on the hottest day of the year so far! This is a simplified version of Olga Murasev’s original design.

My on-the-job tigers are always a challenge, as I’ve been so focused on immaculate line work that I sometimes forget about flow. When in doubt, always look to Mark Reid for tiger inspiration! Painted this absolutely adorable little tiger at the same party and he and I were both super happy with the result!

I’m also always a little terrified when boys request a character I’ve never heard of and then produce their tiny little arm for me to replicate it on! So I was pretty pleased by my efforts today with “Ultra Sonic” on this kids arm. He bloody loved it!   Wish I’d got a closer picture  although this photo of the two brothers taken by their mum is just awesome!

I paint boys too!

Just to prove I do paint boys too, here’s the birthday boy from yesterday’s party in Leicester! Absolutely loved face painting this little hulk at his 5th birthday party – such a cutie! Love his little upsidedown badge. Love his little shirt. And I love that you can’t see his neck in the photo so it kind of looks like he’s wearing a mask/ his face is super-imposed!

Pokemon/ Pikachu Pregnancy Bump painting

This Pokeman/ Pikachu bump painting was probably one of my favourite baby bumps yet! The design was inspired by baby’s big sis, who chose Pokemon and Evie as the characters, and “all the colours” as the super bright rainbow background!

These awesome art-in-progress shots were taken of me by my lovely client as I was painting her pregnant belly! I’m just loving capturing all my art at the moment at each stage of its creation, so I was thrilled to receive these photos.

This beautiful little cheeky monkey brought her Pikachu onesie for the maternity photoshoot and I just adored how it brought the painting to life! These photos are a beautiful, unique way to create a special bond between existing siblings and their soon-to-be-born little brothers or sisters!

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.
