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!

Continuing my personal challenge of one stroke for one month, which has now become a very elastic month! *See previous posts for explaining what “one stroke” is 🙂

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.
Next month I am teaching my very first workshop – in Northern Ireland! In preparation I am creating different one stroke designs every day – practising my technique and rediscovering the endless possibilities one can create with one strokes! I simply adore this method of painting, with its mouthwatering array of colour combinations, and the effortless blending effect achieved with one stroke of the brush ❤ Here’s to the next 24/25 days!!
