This artist is talented. I’d like to see more from her.


Therese Burch Fri at 12:37 am

Some thing wrong with this one, it would not show correctly. I’d like to see more videos of artists with real talent– not mom’s who are just painting for the first time (like the cat)who don’t yet have any talent. I enjoyed the artist who did the spiderman and the puppy. Not interested in seeing talent less than hers.
Also it became difficult to find the videos. I ended up going back to the end of the Spiderman video each time to find the videos to view them. Am I doing something wrong?

great video, really helpful! Only thing is, I wish that they would tell us what kind of brush, and brush number is being used. It’s always easy to identify the smoothie..but distinguishing what brush is being used is difficult.



Cary Wed at 6:48 am

Love the video and the powders and brush used. Were can I get this?


clare Wed at 8:21 pm

i would love more videos of faces being painted. thanks

Hi Pauline! Hi Philadelphia! You ladies are doing us a great service by having this blog! Any tricks of the trade and videos are very much appreciated! Could you please tell me how can I make(by mixing colors of Mehron paint which are dry powder cakes) a substancial amount of a certain shade …….say of “lilac” ?


admin Sun at 9:19 pm

Thanks Joanne, it’s great to hear you’re enjoying the blog! If you can’t buy a certain color that you want, then you can always mix your own.

Start with white (white will make up the majority of the color) and a little bit of blue mix this together with a palette knife until you get a dark enough shade (lilac is very light so you won’t need much blue) then add tiny bit of red.

Store it in a small concealed container, (just get something from a 2 dollar shop) and that’s all there is to it :-)

I hope this helps!

These videos have been so helpful. Especially the rainbow. Such a simple yet effective idea that has now seen my unicorn rainbows double in popularity. Thanks so much.

Note for Leilani: I emailed Heather and asked her about her brushes. She is really friendly and very helpful so if you have a question I’m sure she will help. Anyway below is her reply on brushes:

“I will be honest, it’s not so much the brush but its the paint. The Wolfe Black seems to last the longest on my brush and it seems to just go forever. My favorite brush of all time is the American painter #5. That brush is so nice and makes all types of lines. But I find that brushes are really a personal thing. Some people prefer a softer brush while I love a stiffer brush. I just started carrying a brush set called the Majestic brush set and that brush set includes 7 brushes of all round sizes, the handles are black acrylic and they are amazing. I think if anything that’s a good way to go because it gives you so many choices. I hope I am not confusing you.”

Hope this helps x

Thanks for demo video. I’m usually doing watercolour but am starting my facepainting efforts this Sunday…was told spiderman was popular so was very glad to find such a great video. Thanks!!!!

My son hates to let me paint his face. After I show him this video I can’t wait to see his reaction. He wanted venom and I wanted a good hero. We finally compromised on the half good and half bad spider=man. I can’t belive I found this video to show him.
You made our superhero camp out . thanks

I am just waking up to realizing that I absolutely LOVE face painting!!!! I have always really loved to draw and all kinds of art stuff, but honestly…. not the greatest unless I take hours and hours… I know, way too much info, I’m sure, but, bare with me… please… I bought a book, by KLUTZ because it was on such a clearance at Target that I couldn’t NOT buy it… originally like 30.00 was 2.48. I am not the kind of person that will ever brag on myself, mainly cuz there hasn’t been anything per say to brag on, but, not to toot my own horn, but TOOT TOOT! I think I have found my calling…. I am definately not looking to be rich, or even a business, but to be able to do a few parties for friends, and to be able to paint faces at the church functions and such, and if someone would offer me money… I definately wouldn’t turn it down…

So, if you have bared with me so far, Your an angel, and you also made that face painting look EFFORTLESS, and I know that it’s not… I love the way that you go through and explain everything and, just the whole thing was done wonderfully.

I am pretty computer illiterate when it comes to u-tube and such (I think that is what the video was through), I don’t even really know how I ran across your video, I know that i was doing a search for something, anywho, I am glad that I did see it, and I would love to see any more that you would have….

Thank you so much for putting these types of how to’s up
