Whoa! I'm sorry I missed this the first time around! You are such a talented artist and I love your unique take on face painting! So much more fun than the boring (and somewhat unrecognizable) butterflies that I always got at summer festivals Smiley.

Aww, thank you so much!  I only just saw your comment--I haven't been able to be very active on Craftster lately because I don't have Internet at my house (I go on my computer maybe once every week or two).

Smiley  So glad came across your article...I actually had t-shirt into quilt on my things to look up in Google!!  You saved me the time!  I have a bunch of my sons from all his sports thru the years and have saved them but would !rather get them out of the storage bin and into something he could use!  I know he'd get a kick out of it too.  I was wondering if I ironed on the back of the shirts the fabric stiffener first if it would help when piecing and sewing?Huh  I'll let everyone know!  Thanks for posting!

Sorry for the late reply, but yeah, I'm sure interfacing would definitely help  Smiley

what a cool idea!  I need to do this for my sons, who have taken after their dad's t-shirt hoarding habit.

Not a bad idea! And thanks! Cheesy

Love it!!

Thank you!! Smiley

is beautiful! did u add something to henna or only watter? i add sugar, lemon and oil but i heard from indian people they only add watter, but also i think their henna is not exactly the same we find in occident.. even they have a such beautiful dark red henna..

I use a premade paste I buy from an Indian market.  From the ingredients listed, the only additives are lemon juice and water.  It doesn't smell like anything other than that was added, and I've never had anyone have an adverse reaction to it, so I'm sure that's all that's in it.  Smiley

These are awesome! I love the designs. And cute name!
I do face painting as well and if you are getting a business together for it make sure you have a Spider Man mask design in your book. I paint more of that than anything else. Also, you should start looking into summer festivals that you can rent a little booth space. It's usually really worth the $ to do it. I clear $500+ by myself when I'm at any sort of event.

What brand of paint are you using? I use Snazaroo, it's my favorite. But the red annoys me. Also, what sort of glitter? Are you using it in a gel or loose?

Thank you! Cheesy
Yes, I have a Spider Man mask, lol.  I actually used to do face painting and henna tattoos at Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL, so I know what designs are most popular  Wink
I've been thinking of summer festivals, and I'm actually a volunteer photographer for the renaissance faire in my area, so they're helping me to try and book face painting gigs with them, too! (super excited about this Cheesy)

The paint I use is two different brands.  Every color except for orange and pink (because I haven't gotten around to buying the orange and pink cakes yet) is Wolfe Brothers Hydrocolor, and the orange and pink are Snazaroo from a kit I got for free for working a gig last year.  Wolfe is what I used when I painted at Busch Gardens, and I absolutely love it.  As for the Snazaroo, to be completely honest, I probably wouldn't use it if I hadn't gotten it for free.  It gets too goopy when it gets wet.  Wolfe dries faster and isn't as insanely thick (it's still thick enough to be really great face paint, but the Snazaroo is a hair away from going from thick to goopy).

The glitter I use is loose, and is also Wolfe Brothers.  In person, it's SO gorgeous!  It has a lot of different colors and dimension to it, and a tiny bit goes a long way.

Yeah, "In Your Face! Face Painting" is how I have semi-officially decided to start referring to my face painting..."business" (it's not really officially a business yet...just something I do on the side, haha)

Anyhow though, here are some of my recent designs that I've done.
If you've seen my other face painting post, you can see how I've improved. Smiley

Tiger on my boyfriend (design is based directly off a design one of my friends/face painting mentors did; a year ago, I probably couldn't have done this)

Design here is loosely based off of a unicorn I saw somewhere online (only part I took from it was the fact that the unicorn uses the wearer's eye as its eye)

Rubber ducky with bubbles mask
Super proud of this one!  I was asked to face paint at the Milford Duck Pond Race a couple weeks ago, and wanted to create a design related to the event.  The kids all loved it!

This is another design I was super excited about, and love how it turned out....especially the "mane" (not sure if it's called a mane on a giraffe...?)

I absolutely love octopuses (or octopi - either plural is appropriate Wink)

Loch Ness monster on my boyfriend.  This is an adaptation of a design I learned whilst working at Busch Gardens in Florida.  I think it brings out his eyes really well  :3

This is another direct copy of one of my friend/mentor's designs.  Done on my cousin for a St. Patrick's Day parade.

Shark on my boyfriend!
Love how this one turned out, too--loosely based off a design I saw somewhere online.  Super popular with little boys.  ^__^

Hello Kitty
Obviously I didn't create this design myself, lol

Dragon Mask
Loosely based off a design I learned while working at Busch Gardens in Florida.  I need to work on the wings a bit....otherwise, I'm pretty pleased with it, and so was my friend's son (the model) Smiley

Pulling Teeth
This one was based off a design I remembered from about 2 years ago.  Saw it somewhere online (as I usually do, haha) 
Done on my friend Annie, who is a dental hygienist and requested that I do a tooth-related design on her.  She loved it, haha 

CCI Logo
This is my friend Danielle who is a volunteer puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence.  Learn more at cci.org  Smiley

Rainbow robot unicorn shooting a laser beam from its horn!!!!
I was so excited to do this one.  Smiley

Yep.  My friend Shelby as a Power Ranger.
He asked me to paint his face, and said I could do what I want....he was already wearing this shirt, so I went with it.  He was super excited, as was I.  Smiley

The end! Cheesy

these are so beautiful and very inspiring.  henna is such a great art for women to share with each other (or men).  i have always felt a sisterly bond with people during this process. 

thanks for sharing this!


Thank you so much!  Cheesy

These are really gorgeous! Well done!!

Awwh, thank you!  :3

This is literally the first time I've seen the "shatter" look and liked it, haha!

I honestly hate the look of the shatter nail polish, but this is absolutely beautiful.  Smiley

Thanks!! Cheesy

I've been saving up bottle caps to do something similar--but I want to do mine on a card table (a bit larger, heh).
This turned out absolutely AMAZING, and makes me want to get started on mine, haha.

Wow that's a great idea! My husband has too many t shirts (what's the deal with guys not wanting to throw t shirts away??) I might give this one a try.

Thank you!
And you definitely should!  I almost wish I owned a lot of t-shirts so that I could do this with my own clothing (I have WAY too many clothes right now), but of all the clothing I own, t-shirts only make up a small portion of it, lol.
