It’s almost two weeks now since my last facepainting festival at the Roving Canal Traders Association Floating Market in Fazeley. Immediately following the festival, early on the morning of Tuesday 30th May I left the country with my daughter and young grandsons for a week in the Menorcan sunshine. Sadly the weather at Fazeley wasn’t in our favour and hampered my ability to facepaint – but so did a family emergency …
My elderly mum needed care and assistance on Saturday and Monday mornings, so I travelled to Ombersley to be with her then back to Fazeley. I hate to let people down when I’ve advertised I’ll be somewhere, and rarely do. I heard someone had asked where the facepainter was on Saturday so if you’re reading I apologise profusely. When I was able to be back at the festival unfortunately it was too wet to facepaint.
Fortunately the one full day I was able to commit to it remained dry and the sun even shined intermittently.
Introducing Hair Feathers
In September 2016 I attended the Face and Body Art Convention at The Copthorne Hotel Merry Hill with ‘Rainbow Faces’, a huge three-day event where face painters from around the world gather to expand their knowledge and skills.
One of the classes I took was for decorating hair – with braids, plaits and/or feathers. At Fazeley Jules from ‘The Hippie Boat‘ put two synthetic feathers in my hair and I returned the favour.
For my next event at Middlewich on the weekend of 17th and 18th May, I’ve ordered 50 real feathers to add to my kit and can’t wait to offer them to customers there.
