I'm just here to help the People Feel Happy

 Client said they ordered FACE PAINTING, and that's what they want.  Unusual event because of the Pandemic-Masks, but it felt great to be there.  Like we will be able to breathe again. 

Because I wouldn't take the job unless the participants would be wearing Pandemic-Masks during the process, the Client left a lot of masks for the Guests in the Face Painting area.   And I was wearing Mask and Gloves myself.  

But the masks were too big for the children.  Between the large masks and the hats that many of them were wearing, that left me with very little area to paint.  Added to that, the guests would tell me things like "I want a cookie here (next to her eye) and a cupcake here (next to her other eye).  Just Things.  Or a guest would come back after requesting a 'Cooking Utensil' on each arm ~ the Then request a Queen Esther on her arm too ~ just a lot of Things.  

So this time I didn't get chances to paint my usual Face Transformations (even if just on forehead/eyes).  I painted a lot of Things.  It felt easy.  

And it kept the children happy.  Some kept coming back for more and more.  

Here are photos of a few of the simple things I painted for them:

Purim Names

 Things are looking up.  I just booked my first FACE PAINTING Event since the Pandemic started almost a year ago.  


Not quite ready to make the decision to go out there, I wouldn't take the Event until my Client signed a paper saying that he is taking responsibility for any Health or Disease issues that might be involved with the FACE PAINTING.  I also told him that I would be wearing a Mask and Gloves, and I would not FACE PAINT anyone who is Not wearing a mask.  This limits what I can Paint, but I can still make some really fine designs.  Just around Eyes and Forehead.  


And to help my Client's Guests Enjoy the Event at their own comfort level, I also want to offer this ALTERNATE FOR ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO DO NOT WANT FACE PAINTING.  Since this is a Purim Party, I will call it PURIM NAMES (but I can prepare this Alternate Party Art for Any Occasion).  


I would ask the Name of the Guest, and then I would Draw it On Paper ~ Purim Character Styled.  Can you tell which one is Queen Esther?  Which one is Mordechai?  King Achashverot?  Vashti?  Haman?

Because I have to be on top of my game when I get to the Party.

Facepainting with Masks and Gloves

 I finally agreed to Facepaint at a Small Party ~ after a Year of turning down every request.  I made sure that the Client was aware of the Pandemic, I told him that my expertise Only involved the Artwork, and I left the decision up to him.  I told my Client that he would be responsible for any rules or safety issues or his guests health.  It was a very Small family party in their home, and we all wore masks.  

Here I was practicing at home Before the Party.  I made sure that I would be able to Face Paint under those restraints.  It wasn't much harder than wearing mask and gloves while I cook and clean at home.

Adjusting my Designs

It's a good idea to hire a really Experienced Party Artist.  So she can handle each Individual appropriately.  Here are some Facepaintings that I created at a Community Event last year.  It illustrates just that.

For example, the Very Young Girl who requested the Santa Hat ~ she did not get the exact same treatment as the School-Age Girl who requested the Santa Hat.  The Very Young Girl ~ not having expectations about Face Painting yet ~ was amazed with the decoration as is ~ with only a quick Tap of Glitter.   Because  a very young child might not have been able to sit for the few extra moments that the perfect application would have taken.

And the Boy who wanted to get in on the Frozen fun ~ I had had a run on one request for a Frozen Design after another ~ I had been creating Different Frozen designs on each of the girls.  And here you see that I came up with one that felt really cool for a Boy, too.















These are the sort of things that a Very Experienced Party Artist tries to do.  Because Your Children are not generic people who can be handled as routinely as if we were home painting on paper.  You want an Artist who knows her stuff so well that she can be flexible with whatever happens in the moment.

Happy Halloween

Lol.  Here is some of the Facepainting that I did at a recent Event.  Not on purpose that there is so much Orange, but I did feel surprised by how much Orange I had used this time.  Just felt like the right color.  Perhaps because of this time of year Autumn:

No Unicorns

No Unicorns Or Spidermans were requested this day.  I frequently don't even write those choices on my signs because I want to be able to paint other things too.  So it was a surprise.

Here are a few of the Facepaintings that I did make:
