A wet day in Whetstone…

Last week on a very very wet day in Whetstone, Leicester I painted at a big bank holiday pub event, alongside magicians, animals, bouncy castles and live music! The relentless rain did not deter the crowds and I was non-stop for 5 hrs, one of the busiest face painting events I’ve ever done! I managed to take a couple of photographs before it got manic, and I was sent the photos of me painting and me with the little rainbow girl by her lovely mum!

Face painting in progress! After applying the rainbow base I work around the driest areas first with white tear drops, creating a butterfly shape.

Voila! The finished face and a happy customer 🙂

Below are 2 more little cuties – a butterfly using TAG unicorn colour combo, and an Elsa-inspired design – both using one stroke. I just love these colours and their smiles!

ONE STROKE for ONE MONTH – Days 7-12

Every day for a month I planned to paint a new design using “one stroke” technique. One stroke involves the use of “stripey” paints (see some of the images below and previous post). With a 3/4″ flat brush it is possible to pick up multiple colours at once, and with one motion create an effortless blending effect. Here are days 7-12.
