What is Pantone?
Pantone is a standardized color matching system, utilizing the Pantone numbering system for identifying colors. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all reference a Pantone numbered color, making sure colors match without direct contact with one another.
Now that we got that covered, let's do some painting!
This design quickly became my favorite to offer at any event because it's so versatile. Also, don't you just love designs that can be painted with only two brushes!?
Paradise Beach Berry (my favorite red)
I didn't have coral paint in my kit so had to mix one. Orange and pink from facepaint.com own palette gave perfect result. With filbert brush I'm placing my Vivid Coral fish under eye and her tail is going all the way to above the eyebrow creating C shape.
Using same filbert brush (loaded with coral mix) I go over white and red to add some more lines to the tail of our fish. With small round brush No1 paint some speckles/scales. Now it's time to paint eye, line the shape of fish and add some swirls, teardrops to design-also using small round brush No1.
Continue with lining whole design with black. After that,take white and add some swirls and highlights to get more dimension and interest. Adding matching eye shadow is optional of course but it does make your design look more complete and cohesive.
My favorite thing for finishing up any design is shading. For me it's great and easy way to give more realistic feeling to the design. Black Mehron Starblend is my go to and must have powder paint for shading.
Tips and tricks
Very often I get parents complaining how their kids don't want to take off their face paint before going to bed. This is what I tell kids while I'm still painting them:
Great way to save this painting is to have a "wet wipe print!" Just put a wet wipe over design and press until image is transferred onto wipe.
Coming from the small but beautiful country of Croatia, I am the owner artist of SlikaLica. I love working with kids and putting smiles on their faces.Painting fast, simple but pretty designs is my favorite thing in Facepainting!
