  NEW! • Vol 3, Issue 3 • Fall 2019
 

This issue is dedicated to boys! While boys can get into face painting just as much as girls, we often times struggle to come up with as many design options for them. One thing we’ve noticed is that boys prefer not to have paint too close to their eyes or on their eyelids. So when we started to see Annabel Hoogeveen’s awesome mask paintings flooding social media, we had to reach out to her for our Pro Artist Q & A session! In this issue Annabel not only talks about how she got started and shares valuable advice that she’s received along the way, but has also put together a couple step by step designs for us!

In this issue you'll hear about Gretchen Fleener's first year running a booth at the Minnesota State Fair, the Glitter Glamper! It was quite a wild ride, and you can read all about it and some of her learnings from the experience in this issue.

With fall comes Halloween, and new opportunities to reach outside our birthday party comfort zone to offer more elaborate services like private appointments. Private sessions are some of my favorite projects! You really have time to do your best work, and end up with awesome portfolio material. In this issue Diane Spadola shares with us some of her tips for landing and executing private appointments!

We also have loads of awesome step by step designs this month from Annabel Hoogeveen, Silvie Vissers, Gillian Child, Lydia Herrmann and Gretchen Fleener.

  Vol 3, Issue 2 • Summer 2019
 

In this "green" issue we talk about how to recycle, upcycle, and DIY your way to an awesome kit or display that is as unique as you. We also talk about how to get just a little bit more life out of face painting products that you are thinking about tossing aside, and make what you have last a little bit longer. And speaking of making things last, the experts at Mehron have sent us some tips to make your theater makeup last longer too in our Tools & Techniques section. We show you how to get the most out of those last bits of paint by creating confetti cakes, how to make your brushes last longer, and what to do with all those empty paint containers!

Besides making our face and body art supplies and artwork last, we can make an environmental impact by finding new uses for old things. This month artist Linda Krause-Maldonado shares with us how she turned her thrift store finds into awesome kits for her face and belly painting, airbrush and henna! We also have put together a fun collection of DIY face painter “hacks” to improve your kit while keeping your wallet fat, and even some fun ways to repurpose all those empty paint containers we all have piling up.

The subject of our Pro Artist Q&A session this issue is the amazingly talented Svetlana Keller! Svetlana is not only a pro at face painting but also balloons, and has some great experience and inspiration to share! Also in this issue, artist, agent and business coach Diane Spadola gives us another great article on the 10 habits of UNprofessional face painters! Make it a goal to remove some of these habits from your business this year! Our “Branching Out” series is back in this issue, as we interview Manuela Cason on her invention of the new GigGenie mobile face painting apron! Linnéa Önnerby Novak has created three more wonderful step-by-step designs for you this issue, and don't forget to check out our inspirational galleries of face, body and belly painting, our poll question, upcoming events and new products!

Read on to hear how the couples we've interviewed successfully blend their businesses and relationships, and get some great advice on how to keep your spouse or partner on board whether they are into the artistic side or not!

As face painters we have had endless stream of kids flow through our painting chairs, and we try our best to give them all a lovely experience. However, every child is unique in their own special way. In this issue Kelly Smith shares ten simple yet impactful tips for painting kids who are on the spectrum or have other unique needs, and how we can ensure they too have the best experience possible!

This month we have Valentine themed step by steps, and a fun assortment of inspirational designs in our galleries. And speaking of inspiration, we have put together a beautiful tribute to Heaven’s latest artistic angel, Jocelyn Casdorph. Thank you to the artists who submitted their portraits of Jocelyn to our collage!

  Wet paint vol 2 issue 4 winter 2018 With the season of sparkly decorations and glistening snowdrifts fast approaching, I found it appropriate to give this winter issue the theme of BLING! Being new to bling clusters myself, I’ve interviewed Jewel Junkies Facebook group creator Lilly Walters Schermerhorn about how to make and use your own bling clusters. We also share an inspiring story of 15 year old gem cluster phenom Aubrey Goettlicher, and a collage of creative bling cluster ideas!

In this issue I’ve also started a new series called “Branching Out.” In this and future issues, this series will focus on the various ways that face & body artists have expanded their business to include something other than painting itself. In this issue I’ve interviewed artists from around the globe who create and sell their own bling! Also in this issue, professional entertainer and safety expert Kelly Smith writes on the subject of keeping yourself safe at gigs. Last but certainly not least, Briar Adams shares with us a recap of the New Zealand Body Art Showcase, complete with a photo gallery of artists with their models!
