Bodypaint Fun

I recently attended the brilliant Paradise Jam brilliantly organised by the brilliant Juliet Eve of Facade fame – it was all brilliant!!  This is one of the biggest face and body painting jams in the country with well over 100 artists in attendance from all over the UK and some flying in from other parts of the world. It takes place at the Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire, so between painting, you can go into the zoo to see wild animals – unique, I reckon!… This is the second year I’ve attended  – last year I was too nervous to paint in front of all the awe-inspiring talent – but this year I worked with Heather Sharp on a black & white, Garden of Eden inspired body paint. Followed by a photo shoot involving a snake ‘borrowed’ from the zoo! :-)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I thought I’d try my hand at some alternative Valentine’s painting. Using Cameleon black, white & red face paints, I created these body art designs. I’d like to work them up into a full body paint one day – maybe next Valentine’s day :-)

Pucker up, Princess

Quick little body painting I did to practise shadows and highlights. The juxtapositioning of the ‘Princess-style’ lips and the horror fangs amused me! xx

Stuff wot I paint on my arm! :-)

Don’t often have time to take photos of my face painting and body art work at events, but I often practise techniques and designs, or just doodles, at home on my arm for fun. It’s a good way to come up with new face painting ideas, which I can then develop into full face and body art designs. Here’s a couple I’ve done recently :-)
