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.

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.

❤Face painting classes 1-2-1 in Candyfloss Castle❤

Absolutely fallen in love with teaching face painting!
Just taught a wonderful, talented lady in 2 sessions and had such an amazing time. We worked on teardrops, tiger stripes, one stroke flowers, double-dipping and much much more! Sample faces were used to illustrate how these techniques can be used in a design. She even wrote a super sparkly review for me!!  Thank you Jane
“Today was my last face painting lesson with Livi, I am so sad it’s over. It’s been great. Livi is amazing, such a natural talent, fabulous teacher and wonderful person. I feel so lucky to have been taught by Livi and would recommend her to anyone who is just starting out and wants to know the basics, or if you have experience but would like to really refine your techniques. I couldn’t recommend Livi highly enough.”

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.

ONE STROKE for ONE MONTH – Days 1-6

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!!
