Most of my body paintings take around 5 hours on average... glad you liked the tigress one... it's one of my favourites - the lady who was the tigress got me to paint her so she could surprise her boyfriend - he loved it! Did that about 7 years ago - doesn't time fly!!!
Wow, sounds like a fun course! I don't do much in the way of *face* painting myself - in terms of face painting it's just helping out for the occasional charity event - I wouldn't really rate myself much as a face painter compared with the best. Body painting's much more my thing - lots more canvas to play with, and it's not so "fiddly" as face painting either lol. Also, painting adults is a lot easier than painting kids, as they are more likely to stay still better!
Oh wow, you did theatrical make-up and face painting too then? Don't you any more?
I use Grimas and Kryolan too, plus Snazaroo, Mehron Paradise and Wolfe Bros. The dolphin body painting was mainly Grimas and Paradise, I seem to remember, but using Wolfe Bros black for outlining - it is by far the best black face/body paint I have used - yet - just *so* intense!
Yep, London was fab! We went on a tour of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and then saw the rest of the exhibition there; went for a yummy pizza and ice cream at Pizza Express, and then went to pick up Sonia's carer Debbie and her husband Dave from the airport to give them a lift back to Shrewsbury (they were flying back from their holiday in Thailand)...
Hi Minky. Lovely to hear from you - hope you are well too :)
Piggy is fine thanks - she's just decided that she likes the taste of Tantrick lol, as she was licking my feet when I got back from modelling for Elaine this morning!
Sonia and I are both knackered - we had a lovely day in London yesterday, didn't get back until about 11 last night - then I didn't sleep much last night because the wind was so noisy - and another early start this morning too! So we have had a veg out day and watched telly most of the afternoon lol...
