FPBA Convention Las Vegas - 2011 - Student and Instructor Challenge

For the Instructor / Student Challenge I was set up with a great team of 3 students to mentor. We chose a design that would be organic and could grow and develop with the students confidence. In stead of asking htem to stick to my idea I wanted them to work within my framework for creating a base / backdrop and them let them jam and experiment with new techniques they had learnt at the convention, show off a bit. I am not really one for competition style body painting and and for a couple of them it was thier first ever bodypaint so I wanted to take the pressure to win and complete a set design I wanted finished to my standards off them and allow them to relax and enjoy their first bodypaint with no pressure to win. The finished look was completely different to how I would have painted it - but I love it as it has a created piece of each girl's creativity shining through all in all it is something of a collaborative collage. As it was even though we were not going for a podium position our design came in 3rd place. Our team consisted of myself, Ronnie Cyr, Erica Taylor and Holly Smith. Well done everyone!! Our model Melinda was a fantastic sport so a big thanks to her too!

FPBA Convention Las Vegas - 2011 Airbrush Demonstration

At this evening's Bodypainting Jam at the FPBA Convention I was asked to demonstrate a quick airbrush look. I painted this oriental inspired top on fellow Brit and Bodypainter Carolyn Roper. Carolyn was a superstar! I wish I looked this good in not much more than paint!!

FPBA Convention Las Vegas - 2011 images from Day 3 - Quick Painted Clothes

Photo: Jason Harre - - 2011

Today's class I was teaching for the FPBA Convention at Harrah's, Las Vegas, was Quick Body Painted Clothes. I demonstrated a speedy cocktail dress look and broke out some practice bodies for the students to paint in teams alongside me. I demonstrated, blocking out the design, base application, creating folds and creases in fabric, highlighting and shading, creating a drop shadow, painting fine detail and sealing the look.

As I worked on my model the students got to work on thier own versions of the a cocktail dress look. It is always wonderful to see how amazing students work can be in a hands on class. I had a fantastic model - Alana who I hope to paint with again as she has a fantastic attitude.

Here are a few images from the class including a great shot of Alana by my husband Jason Harre who was the event's unofficial photographer.
