My New Adventure! Face Painting!

Face Painting
Bailey as a Butterfly!

I had an opportunity to do Face Painting at a party in Maine last weekend. Although I am an artist and drawing is not difficult for me, working with face paints is a new experience for me. I needed to practice and thank goodness my beautiful granddaughters were delighted to help me practice! 

Face Painting
Later that evening Phaedra wanted to be a pink kitten!

Bailey wanted to be a kitty too!

Phaedra Kitty again! She loves to pose!

A different kitty design on Phaedra!

When I got to the party I got so busy painting faces that I forgot to take the time to take pictures! By the time I took this picture, The only one I got to take,  I had done 5 or 6 blues butterflies, a rainbow with stars, and a batman design! This little girl didn't want her face painted at first but then agreed to having a unicorn painted on her cheek. She looks so serious! 

The cupcakes were so pretty, I had to take this picture!.

The room was very nicely decorated.
My set up. I still have a lot to learn about setting up quickly!

It doesn't do as well on paper as it does on skin but it was fun!
