Face and Body Art Convention

Here is a recent custom tattoo drawing I designed for a friend of mine and her husband. This is a tribute tattoo to a dear friend of theirs and they wanted something that would remind them of him, for he was a simple man that loved to hunt and fish and it was an honor to design this for them.
Here is a progress collage.
I am trying to get all caught up on other commissioned projects before I start working in a salon.
I had to order some new facepaint supplies because I finally used up my old Ben Nye Paint, and could justify getting some new paint! I got an essential palette just to get me through until I can buy the colors individually.
I ordered from Silly Farm, which is one of the top sites to order from and their prices are pretty decent. They have tons of stuff, so if you’re a facepainter, I would definitely recommend checking out this site.
This palette is $30 and standard shipping was only $7. It is not as big as the individual containers, but it states online that you can get at least 100 applications out of them. So, I will give it a try when I get it and do a review if you guys would like. I’m planning on painting some models for the opening of the salon next month and I am excited to show yall. I need to build my kit up again. I have checked out some other face painter kits and they are impressive!
I was checking out Silly Farm, and on the side bar, there was an ad for the Face and Body Art International Convention next year! I seriously want to save up to go to this bad boy! Who wants to take a road trip?
It is not until next year, so I better start saving! hahaha Well, I am off to go work on more projects! See you again soon!

FABA TV and Magical Solutions

Every now and then, I freelance/work for a company called Magical Solutions facepainting or teaching a facepaint session for new employees. Magical Solutions, owned and operated by Paul Krendl, is an entertainment company that hosts private parties, corporate events, holiday events and since were so close to the beach, they also help to provide the tourist entertainment as well. There are magicians, comedians, DJ’s, fire dancer, facepainters, mimes, clowns, and I am sure much more than what I know is available. Oh yea, and stilt walkers! How could I forget, when my hubby does it for this company too when a gig comes up!


I love doing facepainting and body painting! I often get asked how I got started into this field. Honestly, I have always been into facepaint especially around Halloween. Check out this photo below with my dad and I when I was about 3 years old.


It’s kinda funny and ironic that my dad is painting my face and now I paint faces for a living! It just goes to show that you show an interest in what you love even at an early age! My family always supported my artistic background so every holiday and birthday, I always got sketchbooks, paint kits, pencils and easels. I could always do facepainting, but didn’t really start doing it until about 3 years ago, and got really into it when I went to beauty school!


As word got around that I do face and body painting, I eventually got more work doing it. I am always working on my skills. The more practice you get, the more better you become at your craft. And that goes for anything!

Besides youtube and blogs, I had never really seen any websites that offered tutorials until last week, when I was teaching a facepaint session, I found out that we had a new training resource we can use.


It’s called FABA TV (Face and Body Art Television). It is not free, you do have to pay for membership, but let me tell you, I think it is well worth it (even though I did not pay for this). SO, This will be a bit of a review for anyone who is contemplating investing in this service. I think it’s great, there are so many different classes offered online, not only for face and body painting, but for makeup, henna, airbrushing and more. Each class is at least an hour long and filmed in High Def and taught by an experienced artist.


I just absolutely love it. I have been watching classes for hours while I have been finishing up some tattoo drawings and they are really informative and the artists give out tips that even I didn’t know about. I am also a makeup artist, so there are some resources for that as well!

I definitely recommend it to anyone who is a face, body painter, makeup artist or entertainer in family fun. Have you ever this website? What do you think?

Look into the future and you see worry, look into the past and you see regret, look into the present and you shall find the purpose of life
