Using Prosthetics in your Painting!

I have recently discovered the wonderful world of prosthetics and have gone a little nuts with that.  My friend Kristal White recenly turned me onto Gold Leaf, a product that is used mostly in crafting but can produce a highly visual effect and texturizes your art.  The one thing that is hard to achieve in face and body art is texture because the face is not flat and moves so it has a hard time hanging on to any type of texture.  The gold leaf is applied with a safe body glue and can be place anywhere.  I also glued the facric with the same glue to create an even more visual effect.... I really liked the outocme.

My first Blog!!!!! FABAIC 2012

My first article in my blog.....feels really good!  I recently went to FABAIC for what was my 8th year and I have to say that the art I see happen there is always inspiring and a little scary.  Face and body art have come so far in the short 15 years I have been doing it and the level of work is astounding!  I was so fortunate to be painted by Lynne Jamieson while I was there and what a treat that was.  I never paint myself because I wear glasses and the angles are always weird so to get painted and by someone of her caliber was so incredible.  I also participated in contest with a great gal named Anna and that was a hoot.  We were challenged to paint each other to look alike.  We started off with something scary thinking we did not have much time but came to realize we did both faces in half the time alllotted.....it was funny!  You can view both pictures below.....best to you all
