New Face/Body Painting Contest! Art History!

Hi Folks!

It is Anna and Santi here. Guess What!?  A new contest is starting! Yeah!!! The temps are heating up! ( Speaking of heat….let us know if you would like us to carry Star Blends from Mehron…and what colors you like the most. )

After reading the poll results we are going to have you all choose the winner! We found out that we can post a million options on the polls, so now the pressure is off of me! Only those subscribed to the blog can vote, and we do not encourage popularity voting…aka begging your friends and family to vote for you.  The pictures will be posted anonymously once they are all submitted. You can tell folks on facebook to join the blog and vote…but not tell them what your design is.  And it can’t be painted on your own face, but you can paint on your own arm or leg!  lol

The theme of the contest is “Inspired by Masters!”

Not master face painters, mind you, but those from Art History. You know, Van Gogh, Picasso, Degas, and so on. I think this will help us expand out creativity with brush strokes and color combos.  You can make a traditional face painting design, but just incorporate the styles of an artist into it, or you can do something totally off the wall!

Basic Rules

1. Be inspired by an artist in world history….dead or alive. Tell us who the inspiring artist is with your entry.

2. Your entry has to be painted on a real human using real face paint.

3. Tell me how you felt about participating in this themed contest.
