Keeping It Simple
By Joni Nettleship
We all want to paint fast, easy faces and as a busy face painter I need my designs to be done in 2-5 minutes. All these photos are on the job and were done super quick. I didn’t use any one strokes at all, I love one strokes but spend too long loading the things. When I really have to knock out a design I prefer metallic and pearl paints, rainbow cakes and stencils plus glitter and fake blood.
Hope these are useful.
Rainbow tiger – Pearl white base, neon rainbow and a few strokes of black with my favourite Bolt brush.
Dog – Superstar gold and something like 13 black lines. Really quick.
Butterfly – Plumeria rainbow cake, Global black with Bolt brush. Blue chunky eco-glitter applied with Vaseline and cotton bud.
Road accident – tyre stencil, global red flicked on, fresh scratch. Really popular with older kids.
Stars – Superstar silver, DFX white, Global black, chunky glitters and star stencils. Can be used for little children through to adults.
Minecraft – pale and dark greens, Graffiti eye stencil, reptile scale stencil, black and white.
What are your go-to fast faces? What products do you swear by?
