Body Painting

*from my other blog at Dilla Speaks Out

Found myself a new activity on weekends - Face Painting! :) Love it! Love it! Love it! I’ve started painting on my nephews and cousins since 1998. It all started from this book I bought from ‘In The States".

We now have a ‘do’ at The Curve on weekends. Ziezi has a Painting / Sand Art / Window Art / Magic Art Workshop at the flea market and I am occupying a tiny space in her lot. Currently, it’s on Saturdays and I make my appearance for about 4-5 hours to establish my presence, mingle with prospective clients, practise my art and get new ideas for my design. (read - the money is shite!) It’s kinda like my marketing plan lah.. I also get reservations for private functions, family days and parties, that’s where the real dough comes in. (Big SMILES, Big SMILES) I am getting money from doing what I love.. Great, isn’t it?

Not to sound boastful or anything, I think I am quite good at it. Heh heh heh. Check out some pix I have in my profile. I have a photo album on the whole works too.. Here’s more pictures in my portfolio !






With my gypsy image (dangling earings, long scarf tied at the back- the whole shabang!), my natural passion for it, my PR with the kids - the whole thing really works.. :)

What more, I only use the best paint in the world — Kryolan Face Paint.I tried others, but it’s just not good enough, though… Still looking for a supplier here in Malaysia. Got to know of one place from Faizal — in KL Plaza. But the paint is costing a bomb. RM240 for a 12-color pallette. Sheesh… Anybody has any other suggestions? Maybe I have to ask my sister to buy it for me from the UK. We’ll see how it goes..
