Easter Egg Hunt
Earlier this month a friend and I painted at an Easter egg hunt! I probably spent way too many hours creating a whole new design menu of Easter designs but love how they all turned out and had a lot of fun doing them. Here are a few of them…

springtime package deal
Preparing for Easter and springtime gigs? We have a great package deal full of springy goodies! Check it out!

I’ve had several requests to create a laminated Easter cheek art design menu to go along with my other design menus, so this gave me a great start exploring designs!

Recent Press for Paintertainment

A few weeks ago I was interviewed by my local paper about my new book…it was pretty fun for my boys to see Mommy on the front page! How fun!

I was also really excited to have this article published in April’s issue of Skin Markz magazine about my new book as well…

New e-Newsletter
Our free April e-newsletter went out recently and features some fun boy designs, as well as tips and suggestions for painting boys! 

New Design Experiments…
Here are a few designs I’ve done recently…

This fist concept is inspired by Corey Morgan, definitely one of my favorite face painters!! He does some awesome super hero designs with his fist. I’m not huge into super heroes, but have always been a huge fan of Inspector Gadget! So, I just had to try this idea out today!
I’ve also been working on a lot of new boy design ideas…

I’ve just started getting into my new Graffiti Eyes stencils, and I am really loving them so far!! I came up with this fun Lego man design a couple weeks ago and the little brick stencil really added a LOT to the design!

Looking for more great boy designs? Find step by steps of some of these and many more in my book, “Painting Boys!”

For this rocket ship I used 3 of the patterns in my Graffiti Eyes stencils…hexagons (on the left you can’t really see in the pic), stars, and a spattering pattern coming out of the jet!

 This robot was really fun and my TAP gear stencil really added to it! I love to use fingertip daubers when I’m using paint with stencils. The small amount of sponge doesn’t take on too much water, making the paint much less likely to bleed.

 My boys LOVE monster trucks and this design really went over well!  These tire track stencils really make it too…and they go on so easily with a little black Starblends and a lollipop blender in seconds!

This airplane design was a hit too, and doesn’t require any sort of special equipment…just your paint and brushes!

Other than all of this, I’ve been busy booking face painting, balloon twisting and henna for gigs as far out as August! If you’re looking to book an entertainer, definitely contact me soon as those summer weekends fill up fast and early!

Thanks for stopping in! 🙂
