Learning Project

In ECMP355, we are asked to do a project showing our learning.
I have decided to learn how to face paint!
Using photos online, help from a family friend and a bit of experimentation, I am beginning to learn this super form of temporary art.
Instead of using separate posts, all photos of my progression will be added to this page – oldest at the top, newest at the bottom.
I’m also planning to upload a video eventually of me actually painting a face so stay tuned for that!
Big shout out to my awesome friends and family who have let me do up their faces! You’re all so trusting!








(Not 100% sure what I was attempting to paint on my own face. This just kind of happened. Artistic expression perhaps?)581412_4475038111338_1921024587_n

I apologize for the small and terrible picture on this one! 154446_10201371604789372_1416586482_n

IMG_1717 Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of just my own face with this one, so MEET KENNEDY! This was before our Halloween party. She was being a peacock, I was being an escaped comic book character. I took the opportunity to paint my face.

  2. Oh wow! It looks like you’ve put a lot of work into your learning project! If I end up going to a masquerade party, you’ll be the first one I call for some face paint! 😉 Was all of your work just from your imagination or did you have any type of pattern that you followed?? I’d love to just try and paint my face…just to see what would happen, haha!

    • Well, thank you! I definitely had a great time learning how to face paint.
      I didn’t use patterns per say, however, I did google images of face paintings and tried to recreate them.
      If you end up face painting, I would suggest using Snazaroo face paints. You can buy them at Michaels and they come with a bit of a guide and explanation for how to start face painting- super helpful!
