The Living Art Show Body Glitter images

The Living Art Show was a huge success, make up artistes and painters gathered from across the Uk to celebrate their skills in creating amazing works of art on the body including The Living Art Show Body Glitter Competition images

Body Glitters and body gems featured on the Friday competition day with the theme of British Icons running through the whole of the festival it was a day to celebrate all that sparkles.

The Living Art Show Body Glitter Competition day was sponsored by two fabulous companies, Glittertastics who sponsored the glitter body painting and Festival Face who sponsored the use of body gems. Body gems are really popular at festivals and these can be pre bought already made from our friends at festival face or these gems can be applied by hand and stuck on with a body glue to creAte amazing designs like the one below created by Liz Bylett and Maria Bradley

This design was created initially applying a body glue to the skin and also to the back of the gems- allowing the glue to go clear and then fixing the gems onto the skin. The design needs to be created first before glueing then attached once the glue has gone clear.

The next stage is to apply the glitters, these may be adhered using either gels or glues dependant upon the amount of time that is required for the piece to stay in place. Gels are good and will adhere glitters for a few hours if there is likely to much sweating or dancing involved then it may be an idea to use a body glue that will stick the glitters in place for a longer period of time.

For more information about glitters what products to use and how to adhere these then please do visit our page on glitters

Artistes gathered form right across the Uk to create these amazing body painted glitter bodies at The Living Art Show Body Glitter Competition and here you will see their fabulous results -artistes are shown next to the glitter body art that they created.

if you would like to know more about applying glitter you can join us on one of our fabulous classes to learn this skill.

Kryolan Award

Kryolan Award.

Kryolan Award. We had a really winning weekend at the 2017 FACE- Face Painting Association Conference in Chatham Kent over the weekend.

At the 2017 Face conference of the face painting association, I was thrilled to be awarded with the Kryolan Award for dedicated hard work and services to the Face and body painting industry. Kryolan are one of the top make up brands in the U.K so I felt very honored to receive this prestigious award from Vikki and Sarah who have worked for Kryolan UK for many years.

The FACE association was set up to encourage good levels of face painting competence within the industry and  to encourage face painters to work to good heath and safety standards and follow the Face guidelines and codes of practice to enhance the face painting industry standards as a whole.

Face Hold their yearly conference to gather together face painters from across the UK to participate in competitions and jams(A common name for gathering of face painters!), buy from traders on site and generally have great fun together!

We were lucky to be sponsored by Snazaroo, which enabled us to put on an even better event for our members!

Traders came and supported the event too, Kryolan, Magic Box, Paintopia, Funtime faces, Facade glitter supplies, Follies, The Living Art Show. We also had Rainbow faces and The Face Painting convention, Creative Collection and BHP face paint supplies sponsoring competition prizes too.

Competitions ran through the weekend and I was very pleased to be awarded 1st Place in the one stroke competition with this little fella as below!

I was also thrilled to get the 2nd place award in the glitter competition too, sponsored by Facade glitter. So a good weekend all round!

Sunday saw a body painting session organised by Angela Youngs, with myself and Raphaelle Fieldhouse- world body painting champion painting models Sarah Lowndes and Cheryl Lyon, which was great fun a for the meet and great for the Saturday night arrival for our rumble in the jungle party night!
