This past Monday, I took a day off from my day job... to face paint! It was one of the best days ever. Three other face painters and I went to a beautiful Tudor-style house in Shrewsbury, NJ, owned by an employee of ColArt, the art supply company. ColArt owns United States distribution of Snazaroo, a well-known face paint made in the UK.
They're looking to increase their marketing of Snazaroo, especially in social media, so they hired us to spend the whole day in the gorgeous backyard on a beautiful day, painting a bunch of very photogenic and well-mannered kids over and over in different faces for their pro photographer and videographer. It was a blast! At the end of the day, in addition to all the photos taken of my work, I also got to face paint a video tutorial... and get painted in one too!
ColArt has asked that we not share our work until they've got the official photos out and about, so although I took photos I cannot yet post them here. I will in the future, though, so you'll have to keep checking!
Meanwhile, the next morning I got an email for a last minute party that same evening. A young lady was turning four, and her mom suddenly thought it'd be fun to have a face painter. She was right!
Lots of princesses and butterflies.
A couple of boys who loved their hulk and puppy.
And my favorite... a woman who just wanted me to do something pretty and let me do what I wanted!
She was so happy!
