Equine Affaire ~ Facepainting

I thought it would be a great addition to my booth to offer artistic facepainting. I was really busy on Friday and Saturday, doing over 60 kids each day. I painted a total of 165 faces over the weekend! Luckily it wasn't too busy on Sunday so I was able to take a break and visit nearby booths. I really like painting on skin because it has a really nice, smooth texture that makes it easy to blend the paints. I started each day painting my own face using a hand held mirror. That definitely attracted some attention, people would stop and watch, commenting on how difficult it must be to paint the image backwards. I had a lot of fun even though my back was so stiff after leaning over for so long! It was well worth it to see all the kids smiling faces! :)

Jumpers are fun because the kids can pick out what color they want on the poles.
