Christmas Face Paintings!

Lately I’ve been having some fun painting some lesser known Christmas special/movie characters and posting them on our Facebook page! Here are a few I’ve done so far…there are more coming next week, so make sure to like and follow us on Facebook for more fun inspiration to come!

“Pink Nighmare!” from A Christmas Story – painted on myself
“Charlie-in-the-Box” from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – painted on myself! (Using some Ooh! Snowflake stencils!)
“Hocus Pocus” from Frosty the Snowman – painted on myself! (Using some Ooh! Snowflake stencils!)
“Abominable” (Buble!) – painted on my son Toby! (Using some Ooh! Snowflake stencils!)

Okay, this one below is not a particular movie character, however, it was an idea that came out of the Charlie-in-the-Box design with the pom poms! I thought they would make cute snowballs! 😀

“Snowball Fight” – painted on my son Sam! (Using some Ooh! Snowflake stencils!)

Here are a few of the products I used for the snowflakes in many of these designs…I love the short kabuki brush for detailed stencil designs, and am totally in love with these Ooh! Snowflake stencils!!

New Images Added to Work Examples!

Each summer as my number of face painting gigs ramp up, I get more inspired to create new designs.  This past week I’ve been using both myself and my 3 and a half year old as models to try out a few ideas that I hope to add to my selection.  I’ve just recently added some photos of these designs to my work examples page (along with another new animated GIF!), but you can also check them out below!

(above:) On the top two, “Barbie Eyes” and “Frog Eye,” my eyes are actually closed, and I’ve painted eyes on my eyelids.  This is particularly difficult for me to do on myself, being that I am nearly blind without my glasses on, & can only get so close to the mirror with the brush in my hand!  The bottom two are of the same alien, with and without a black background.

 (above:) These are really fun for kids because they can make the mouths open and close.  Sammy loves fishing, especially since we’ve recently moved to a home on a lake, so we had to do a fish and a worm!

(above:) On the top is a frog I painted on my mouth.  Below Sammy is sporting the usual shark I’ve always done as “cheek art,” only now his mouth is aligned with the shark’s mouth.

Stay tuned for more new additions, and thanks for looking!
