A Long Morning

This past Saturday, I painted with two other face painters - and two volunteers who just might have gotten the painting bug - at the Valerie Fund Walkathon in Verona, NJ.  I've been doing this gig for several years, but this was the first year that was misty and chillly.

It was fun anyway, with a great bunch of people and a nonstop line.  I barely had time to snap any photos, but took just enough time for these two, a dragon and a mesh of superheroes.

I like that superhero idea!

Now That's a Party!

Wow.  Just wow.

I did glitter tattoos on Saturday at a 10th birthday party out in Queens, NY.  The family was incredibly nice and the kids really down to earth, but this was the party to end all parties.  Apparently, they don't do big birthday celebrations every year, just milestone-type birthdays, and this was one of those.  I think half the population of Queens was there, together with a DJ, catered food, an arcade party van, pony rides, and a local marching band!  Yes, seriously.

I love it.  I also loved the fact that all the kids, including the multitude of boys, wanted glitter and even the rhinestones I brought with me for this killer event.

Jaden, the birthday boy, got two.  Just 'cause.

Some of what I did...

On these, I used glitter plus my tattoo inks to embellish...

And for this guy, I used my black matte mica powder, ink, and rhinestones.  The powder has a finish that looks like a real tattoo.

These are two really large stencils I had, from the same woman who made my Alice in Wonderland stencils, a phoenix and a Mardi Gras mask, and I love them!

And this one I did freehand on a sweet little girl's hand.

At the end, I got to drive home during my favorite time of day, when the sun is setting and the whole city and the water turn periwinkle blue.

Don't worry, I didn't look as I flashed those.  I just had to try for some shots out the car window as I went over the bridge.

A great end to a great day!
