Shantstock again

see This was a self paint I did during a quiet spell yesterday at #Shantstock. It’s an annual fun day at The Shant pub in Holmfield, Halifax to raise money for The Yorkshire Children’s Trust.

buy Lyrica india I have attended since it’s inception 3 years ago. It’s an event I really look forward to because the atmosphere is fabulous. Bands playing, families having fun and they always seem to get the sun too!

here You can see my stall here. I tried to put my banner up but I have little patience and ended up taping it on with duct tape!

Here are afew of the designs I created.It was mainly girls but I did get to paint afew boys too.  I am enjoying trying out a new more intricate butterfly. I really like the way it’s working and it seems popular.

Festival Season!

This weekend gone was a busy one for me. It started and ended with a birthday party, with a festival in the middle.

Both parties were extremely busy, I did not come up for air! The second of the parties was a repeat customer for me. That is always a special thing. I never take custom for granted. There are so many face painters around so it is so lovely to be reselected.

The festival was the Hebden Bridge Folk Roots Festival. As part of the event, they were allocated funding for Children’s activities. It was a real pleasure to be involved. The bright rainbow Tigers and Leopards were very popular, as you can see.

It was the first time I had displayed my new board too. I think it looked really professional. How about you?

Well, it’s time I got practicing for the next Festival – Heptonstall this weekend. By the way, if you have ever wondered why sometimes Face Painters charge the amounts they do -or not at all – at festivals, read my post in Facebook about it here.

See you there!

Back at The Malthouse

It’s nice to have repeat customers. It’s a great sign that people like what I am doing and happy with the overall service.

I have painted at The Malthouse in Rishworth quite afew times now.

It’s a lovely family pub and when it’s Easter, Bonfire night etc they usually put on some good family entertainment ie bouncy castle, Magician etc

Often the families I end up painting are repeat customers too so I feel like I am getting to know them a little.

On May Day I painted lots of fun flowery designs like the one below.

I also painted plenty of Flower Fairies, Tigers, Spider man and even a rabbit.

A great way to spend a bank holiday afternoon. Hope to be back there again soon.
