Day 38

Karen from the www.facepaintshop.com sent me a sampler of TAG paint for our Guild to play with at the april jam- which was very nice of her :)
I compared the colors to DFx and Paradise. I really like the TAG a lot- esp, the berry wine adn teal- neither DFX or Paradise have a teal that is so vibrant and the berry wine is a totally unique color- similar to wild orchid but much prettier and lighter. I am very interested in the pearls colors. If anyone has tried them ,please comment! I would love to know how they are. I was told they are less sheer. The pearl lilac looks beautiful.

Day 37

My set-up. I tweaked and down-sized thanks to my friend Niki who is the queen of organization and an incredible face painter. Not bad for a tackle-tart.

Day 36

I got this design from Marcela's Masks book and really love the batgirl design. My dtr. likes it too BUT.......the blue is such a pain in the tookish to get off- it stains the skin so much- i think i might steer away from blue and green on the eyes. So i won;t be offereing this design- hmmm unless I do it in yellow/pink- not sure it will look as nice though. I used Paradise- 2 blue mixed together and dfx met. rose.

Day 35

This one is so simple, but i do a ton of them on the boys and soccer ball one on the girls. Did a gig last night- balloon twisted at a school event with about 200 kids for 2 hours. Closing the line went well, in that my system worked well BUT i had soooo many kids that still wanted a balloon and the event was over. One boy was crying. It kills me everytime. And yes, I did have that one person at the end whispering, how 'bout just one more for my sick kid at home? I always say no, because that would mean mutiny.

Day 34

The bank balloon delivery went over great! Now I am a tad more brave for another drop off- i am thinking pediatrician's office, dunkin donuts and the local grocery store.

Painted my son yesterday as a robot face- i tell the kids it's the terminator, and then they all want it. I wonder if they even know who the Terminator really is.......
I used DFX silver with a bit of Mehron silver powder-makes a great silver base.

Day 33

Got St.Patty's on the mind......tried my first balloon "person" today (other than mario and luigi). I might try to give it to TD bank tomorrow and leave some cards- not sure if they will like it or be annoyed at me for solicitation......we shall see :)

Day 32

Phew! It has been days since I posted- sorry! I don;t have enough hours in my day!! I am sitting by the fire- we are finishing up our second cord of wood. For you pineys out there, you know that's a XXX-load of wood for one winter! I am so ready for spring. I stared at my daffodils coming up today, wishing they would bloom. I asked our local garden center where the pansies were. I am looking for robins. My son and I went on a leprechaun hunt in the woods today and found a snake tree that was guarding the hidden treasure. My son, explained to me that we should not stop our search because we were going to be rich! I will have to look some more tomorrow. No leprechauns though. Perhaps if I have a glass of wine or 2, they will be easier to see :)

My son (he's 6) is wheezing a bit with his cold/cough and had to have a nebulizer tonight. I asked my hubby to read to him while he had to sit with this nebulizer. I read to my daughter in her room but heard no reading in the other room. My son was still nebulizing, but my hubby was sleeping on him.....

Here is a face I painted the other night. My daughter said she liked it but not the colors. My kids are the best judges- they say it like it is. I used a new arty cake I got from Marcela's masks class.
