Summer Face Painting

Tiger Tiger face painters have been all over the North West, painting faces, doing glitter tattoos and balloon modelling. psychedelic face painting, festival face painting,

Sat Aug 27th is the busiest day so far of the year. I have a painter covering a new Spar opening in the North East, painters working with me, doing painting and glitter tattoos at the Girl Guide festival and two painters covering the Burnley Canal Festival. So… busy, busy, busy!

I had the pleasure of my son and his girlfriend working with me at the Halifax Fake Festival – a super busy day but they plunged in with gusto and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The Glitter lips were a particularly popular request!

I will be with my partner, painting and blinging up happy festival goers at the Fake Festival in North Hykeham. The festival face painting was a rip-roaring success last year so here’s hoping for another great day this Saturday.

Face Painting & Body Art, Skipton Fake Festival

I love face painting at music festivals 🙂 adult face paint, tiger face paint

Here are just a few photos from what was a verrry busy day at Skipton’s Fake Festival.

adult face painting, festival face painting, butterfly face painting What’s a Fake Festival? I hear you ask.  Is it a festival that is just pretending to be a festival?  Nope. It’s a real festival with real bands, tribute bands to be precise. The Fake Festivals tour the UK bringing such tribute acts as Queen, Foo Fighters, The Jam, Oasis.

The Skipton Festival was packed with happy folks enjoying the sunshine and music and um, beer.

psychedelic face painting, festival face painting,As with any great festival it brought out everyone’s sense of fun and our gazebo was bursting at the seams with both adults and children all wanting face and body art.

I painted about 20 zillion faces while my partner in crime did air brush tattoos, glitter tattoos, coloured hair extensions, crimp-in hair braids and glitter lips.

Themed Face Painting for Adult Parties

I painted Zoo Project style designs on the faces of some lovely folks at an adults’ birthday party in Ripon, Yorkshire, this weekend.

You can’t really see the face painting designs from the photo but I here it is anyway – some very happy party-goers.

Face Painting for the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

What a lovely location for face painting!  The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway booked me to paint faces for their Paddington Bear half term event. paddington face paint, keighley  worth valley railway,  face painting in yorkshire

It was very well attended so the craft activities and face painting at Ingrow West Station was a hive of activity this week.

Even without the children’s activities, Ingrow Station is a great day out because it is truly idyllic.  The gardens by the side of the track are meticulously manicured and the station boasts stacks of vintage suitcases, trunks and many other objects to take you back in time.  Even the waiting room and toilets are truly vintage!  Not to mention the sight of the steam train roaring into the station – truly glorious.

I have to say, Paddington Bear face painting was a bit of a challenge. In fact, painting Paddington’s red hat was far easier than trying to capture that furry face from Peru but it was all good fun and a great success. paddington face painting, face painting  yorkshire, keighley and worth valley railway

The steam train was fantastic and I can’t wait to get a day off to take a trip on this amazing railway which is almost entirely staffed by volunteers.

Face Painting at the Elsecar Heritage Centre, Barnsley

I had a lovely time painting faces at the Elsecar Heritage Centre in Barnsley this weekend.  It’s an old butterfly and flower face pianting, elsecar heritage centre, barnsleycolliery with beautiful old sand stone buildings, a steam railway and visitors’ centre.  To tempt you further there are shops selling antiques and vintage style goodies.

uv face painting, zoo project face paintingI love doing really bright face painting using uv colours so it was a delight to paint this lovely bright tiger face.

Despite the blustery weather the weekend was well attended with some exciting acts and performances and on the Sunday afternoon, visitors came in droves to get their little ones (and not so little ones!) transformed.

This cute little cub went away feeling very tigerish.tigertiger face painting, elsecar visitor centre

The best challenge was the request for a rainbow mermaid.  You’ll have to take my word for it – it was gorgeous. There was no time to get a photo which is a big shame Never mind, I’m going to offer it big style on my next booking and will hopefully get some pics.  🙂

Then there was the boy who absolutely didn’t want to be painted.  No way.  No, Dad was going to have his face painted instead!  Luckily Dad was up for it  – the things we do for our children, eh?  And here he is, in all his tigerish glory.

Nick Wolfe’s Face Painting Workshop – Monster Mathematics.

Monster Mathematics sounded like a cool and intriguing name for a workshop and let’s face it, while many of us find mathematics and monsters equally difficult to manage, to a face painter, monsters provide much more inspiration for face painting ideas than mathematics. face painting practice head, monster design

Nick gave each of us a squidgy practice face and showed us how to divide it into sections.  It looked a bit like somebody had tried to draw the Union Jack but got bored half way through and decided to add a few bits to make it look more interesting. Continue reading
