NEW Products Now Shipping and “coming soon!”

We have a variety of new, fun items across several categories that I’d like to show you today, now available in the shop!

For Face Painters:

Global FunStroke Palettes:
Can’t decide which one stroke cakes to start with? Why not start with 6 at once?! For just $33 you can now purchase one of Global’s two brand new FunStrokes palettes! These are the first ever one stroke palettes on the market, and we’ve got them right here in the shop!

Empty poofer bottles:
These are the same 1/2 oz bottles that our glitter comes in, but now you can purchase them empty to fill with whatever you wish!

For Balloon Twisters:

We were out of a few balloons for a little while, but by next week we’ll have them all back in stock, and then some! These balloons are on their way to me right now, and I expect to have them ready to ship early next week! Here is a sneak peek:

Batman balloons:
We’ve finally completed our assortment of super heroes by adding Batman to the selection! (You can also still find the Avengers assortment and Spiderman in the shop)

Qualatex Smiley face mustache balloons:
Wouldn’t they make super quick and fun wands, hats or “hitchhikers?”

Qualatex 160Q’s in green and red:
I love having these in my assortment for twisting elegant, long stemmed roses! So, I thought I’d add them to the shop! Go any other individual colors in 160 size that you just can’t live without? Let us know! I love to take suggestions for products to add, and am constantly adding more! 


For Henna Artists:

Rotary Cutter:
This cutting wheel makes cutting your own cellophane triangles a breeze!

Be sure to check back often as we’re always adding new items! Happy painting, twisting, and henna-ing! 🙂

NEW Book Now Shipping: “Painting Boys!”

I am SO excited to announce that my latest book is now in my possession and ready to ship! (Click HERE to go directly to it in the shop.)

I have risked my boys never letting me paint them again to bring you this latest book: “Painting Boys!”  I really had absolutely NO intentions of starting another book after my Realism book came out, but oh how soon that changed when the wheels started turning! After noticing a need for more boy design books out there, I decided to set out and create this book to offer something beyond the usual gore, skulls and tribals for boys.

Looking to add more fun boy designs, but you’re not all that into gore and scary stuff?  This is the book for you!  Packed with full color step-by-step photography of 24 fun, fresh, cute and cool boy designs, this book is sure to add some more fun to your boy design selection. In addition to the 24 designs, you’ll also get some tips for painting boys, as well as ideas and suggestions about how to sneak some glitter into your boy designs without getting too girly.

As I’ve mentioned, my two boys (age 5 and 7) were painted a LOT for this book.  Since they inspired so many of these designs, I thought it only fair to let them be my models throughout the book! After sketching up countless boy design ideas, I let my boys choose the ones they really wanted painted on themselves. Only those that were chosen by boys AND elicited the most exciting “mirror moments” were chosen for the book!  So, you can be assured that all twenty four designs in this book are boy approved!

For the price of $14.99 you get 24 designs…that’s just $0.62 cents per design! Check out this fun new reference today, currently available ONLY at!
