Here are some faces I painted for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in the Black Forest for Tweed Theatre Company on the Gold Coast in 2010. It’s great to have somewhere to record my artwork.
Tillie the Turtle
Here Snow White is asleep and……. whatever shall we do?
What a wonderful showcase of amazing talented actors and singers in this show.
I really enjoyed the challenge of painting their faces to suit their character roles. With each show I progressed better and faster. I’m a bit fussy but by the last show the kids looked great. I started out sketching each character on paper first so it was easier to remember what to do under the pressure of time. Lots of other Mum’s helped out to get the whole cast done on time. The secret ingredient was the thin brush with firm bristles and the black face paint made it easier to do fine detail and definitely moisturise their skin first. I had so much fun!
