The first time I placed my brush on his little head, I thought 'Ok, this is not going to be too bad'. And then, the paint started dripping along the brush stroke. Whoops. I had the paint too wet. Out came the baby wipes....I love baby wipes, they are like duct tape for women. I cleaned him up and started again, after first testing the consistency on my hand. Joy to the World, he sat very still and the snake turned out not half bad. I found that painting was not hard, but getting good outlines on a face is really, really difficult. It won't win any awards, but to those kids it was amazing. Snakes were very popular that day.
I started to gather an audience. Everyone wanted to be next. Rein it in kids, this takes a while. Inexperience in action here.
I already knew that glitter makes everything better. That includes face painting.
I don't know how many faces I actually painted that day, but I got everyone done within the scope of the party time and still got to see Lexi open presents.
I even had a couple adults get in on the fun.
It was a really fun thing to do. I didn't poke anyone's eye out and I didn't have a dissatisfied customer. What has your family asked you to do for entertainment sake, that you have not tried before?
Have A Good One,
