    Our Face Painting designs are in the Chuggington Summer Annual!

    The Chuggington Summer Annual was released today and now I can finally tell you all that our face painting designs for this popular CBBC programme are included on pages 124 & 125!

    This project was an interesting one, with the challenge of meeting the design brief for the Chuggington Trainees - Koko, Wilson and Brewster, using only the colours blue, red, yellow and green. 

    Here are the final designs from the Annual:

    All photography was done at the studios of our friends Blueskies Photography. (

    Balloon Modelling for Easter

    Last night was our teams balloon modelling training night and we were looking at designs for Easter.  Along with the ever popular Rabbit we tried out a few new ideas.  Len produced a really great Easter Basket that could double as a hat:
    And we discovered a design for some really lovely lambs:

    I can't wait to try these out in public - they're SO cute!!

    First Henna designs of 2011

    Yesterday the gorgeous smell of Henna was wafting through my house whilst I created Henna cones in preparation for an event at the weekend.  Obviously, it's always wise to check the potency of each Henna batch so I made up a small tester cone and Sharon and I had a little play!

    Face Painting at Croydon House Community Event

    In February, Becky from the Cats Whiskers team took part in a community painting event at Croydon House, Bristol.

    Here are some pictures from the event along with words of thanks from Mark Kelleher, Customer and Community Officer.

    "I would like to say thanks to everybody that came to Croydon House yesterday to help out with our Fun Painting Day.
    The day went as well as planned with the children painting on the pre made boards (and the walls, thanks Kath) and the Face Painter from Cats Whiskers managing to keep up with the constant demands from roughly 30-40 children."

    Best wishes

    Face Painted British Flags - Step by steps

    In February I worked with Snazaroo, the UK face paint manufacturer, to create some step by steps and photographic images for British flags. 

    Some of these images are now being used on

    To follow the step by step for a cheek art Union Jack design have a look at my beautiful daughter at this link:

    For the Scottish Flag or Saltire:

    Here's the step by step for the St George flag:
    Create the outline for the flag using a fine brush and white paint.


    Fill in the white sections of the flag using a flat brush.


    Complete the flag by filling in the cross with red paint.
