Free-hand Red Lace Mask

http://natesohiocity.com/wp-login.php?action=register I love looking at the face painting groups on the internet, I learn so much that way and it’s a really good incentive to push out of my comfort zone. When I saw recently that a fellow painter had done a fantastic black lace mask, I decided I would have a go too, but in red.

Sadly, I had no such occasion to wear it for, so sadly it all got washed off quite quickly. Still, I enjoyed feeling pretty for 10 minutes or so!img_20161029_192100

Work like this can take up to an hour because of the fine detail.  I am sure you will agree it was a real showstopper.

I welcome your thoughts.

Pre-Halloween Fever!

At the time of writing this post, I have two Halloween gigs coming up. I am very excited about both.

I have split any practice time between working on super creepy adult designs and quick, easy kid ones.

Faces like this can take a while (up to an hour) because of all the layering and blending needed for texture and shadows. The face has to be carefully sculpted and contoured.

What do you think?

I have also been working on a kids board for Halloween parties. I just wanted simple designs that are fun and not too scary for the little ones.

 If there’s anything you would like to see, let me know.peace1
