Duck Race

go site

http://tagthecat.com.au/?feed=rss2 I was pleased to be asked by Hebden Bridge Visitor Centre to paint some ducks on cheeks as part of the annual Duck Race in Hebden Bridge.

It was a fun couple of hour’s and great to see adults joining in too. 

I always get a curve ball thrown at me and this was no exception. I had a family wanting Green Ducks because they were supporting the Business Duck Race and had been told they were on the Green Team.

I happily obliged and the green ones looked quite cute, like little Orvilles. Whoops! Showing my age there folks!

Anyway, the weather held out, the usual crowd gathered and the Duck Race got under way.  A good afternoon was had by all. The Hebden Duck Race – yet another reason to visit my fab little town


Wedding at Barkisland

I had the pleasure of Face Painting at a Wedding Reception last night. It was fun to do so many sparkly eye designs like the one below which proved a big hit.

It’s hard to appreciate just how glittery these look in real life but they are so beautiful.

I had been placed (by the bar staff) in quite a dark bar which was a little challenging for me but I think everyone was happy with my designs.
