Special Effects Workshop #HGWells #ScifiBromley

Special Effects Workshop– Last night saw the Follies team once again out and about- This time we landed in Bromley in Kent to join in the celebrations of HG Wells 150th anniversary of being born in the market town.
Last nights event kicked of an weekend of celebrations in The Kentish town Bromley as over 20 young adults showed up for the evening to try their hand at how to do face painting and learn how to apply special effects. They used water based face paints to create some fabulous monster and sci faces, then for the SFX, added latex built up with layers of tissue to create scales and skin on their pre painted monster faces. Once this had been layered a few times and then dried we added face paints and the pulled some of the latex/tissue skin away form the faces for added impact, black paint and liquid blood were then used to finish the looks.this all took place at the Bromley Central Library
This weekends events include Saturday, which sees a fabulous street show with actors, Props and Face painting by our fabulous team Follies face and body painters, we will be on site in the marquees offering Sc-fi face paints, special effects, and wounds bullet holes and scars, with latex waxes and blood. All of this will get you in practice for upcoming Halloween special effects which is only just around the corner!
SCI Fi Bromley -Check out details of the show here

London Fashion Week – Body painting – Follies

14463725_10153747474267554_250026598_nLondon Fashion Week is big part of the capitals creative calendar – Follies and The Living Art show were excited last week to be invited to attend The London Pacific Fashion Collective at The Connaught penthouse suite in Londons West End.

The team from The Living Art Show worked for over 4 hours to produce these x 2 fabulous looks. The pieces were inspired by Liz’s love of the pacific areas including her trips to Hawaii to swim with wild spinner dolphins. Combining the colourful beautiful flora and fauna of the areas as well as a tribal representation of the ocean that provides us with so much.

The headdresses were made by Liz using a combination of Silk and fresh flowers and leaves. Bound to represent the headdresses worn by the local women. The tail pieces nor bustles added some fun and fashionable movement to the looks.

The looks were created by applying a liquid brightness gold base then blending aqua colour cakes in various shades of greens and blues into these. Flowers were applied using handmade stencils with pros aide glue and large glitters, from their favourite store Kryolan Uk. 

Leaves were applied using a combination of hand painted one stroke leaf and flower designs and stenciled on leaves. The stencils were pre cut using heat tool and Mylar film.

The final pieces were finished off with hand painted swirls and curls..using a combination of DFX and Wolfe face and body paints.

If you would like to learn how to create any of these effects shown here- regular body painting lessons courses and workshops take place at the Follies academy in Kent- On our 2 x day courses you can lean all of the techniques required to be able to produce full body paints like these.

We wish as always to thank our fabulous models

The Face Painters’ Blueprint Book – It’s in her DNA!

The Face Painters’ Blueprint book:  Local face and body painter- Liz Bylett shares the secrets of “How to Face Paint ” after 25 years in the business.

Liz ‘s career in face and body painting  started when she saw face painters working at a local festival- “I was mesmerised” she says and stood and watched the face painters  creating  these amazing designs. “I always knew that I didn’t want to work in an office”. The combination of the joy on the children’s faces combined with her love of art and all things creative, she decided there and then that this is the career she would pursue.

Armed with a small palette bought locally, she practiced on her then willing boyfriend. (Whom she has now been married to for 25 years, “he obviously didn’t mind too much!” She says). “It just took off from there, I started to paint at events and parties and then, found that I couldn’t cover all of the events that I was being contacted for so I started to train up other members of the “Follies team”.

After 28 years of teaching at her own Follies Academy, for companies, in colleges across the UK, training across the world, demonstrating at shows for large make up companies, she has condensed the basic knowledge of “How to” face paint  into this fabulous compact book  The Facepainters’ BlueprintPublished by Herkimer

The book takes the reader day by day or week by week over 7 simple stages through all of the processes of how to face paint

From health and safety; to where to buy products, through each of the application stages, then onto face painting designs.

It’s a fabulous tool for any mums, school PTA’s, individuals who wish to learn to face paint for children’s parties, to paint the children for events at school, to start their own successful businesses or just for fun.

It is clearly laid out and can be used on its own or alongside the available training videos. 

Liz believes that anyone can master this skill if they are shown how to. “I have loved my time as face painter; met some fabulous people, travelled extensively, enjoyed the creative side of my job and bringing pleasure to many. Now I wish to share that skill and open that opportunity up to an even wider audience with the book and training videos”

The book officially launches on Saturday 9th July with a launch party that welcomes many of The Follies Academy now successful face painting business owners and past and current students.

The launch party also combines; Face and body painting, provided by Follies, The Living Art Show and The South East Body Paint Project. Live music from The Mofos, food and drink, plus photographers working against a beautiful Kentish country back drop and a couple of Harley Davison’s for the photo shoots!

If you wish to purchase a copy of the book or to get more information about the training please contact Liz at Follies www.follies.co.uk  www.follies.co.uk/book /

Body Painting Circus Theme

Warpaint

The theme for Warpaint 2016 was Circus…our lovely model Dulcey, carried this look beautifully.Our concept was the lion tmare with the image painted on the back of the lion Tamer with her head in the mouth of the lion! The big top features heavily- we wanted to celebrate all of the traditional circus themes in this look, with the addition of the usual sparkly Follies glamour!

This Body painting design was created using large particle glitters from Kryolan, glued with a water based  glue, Pros aide for example.

Mistair, airbrush and paints were used to create the lions face on the front and Kryolan and Snazaroo colours plus Cameleon were used on the body, finishes were added with Mehron gold powders and mixing liquids.

The bustle you may recognize form an event earlier this month! Nothing like a Recycle!

This look was created for Warpaint. We can do the same at your promotional event.

Pop Art themed Body Paint Shoot

Follies body painter Dee Love joined forces with the lovely Karla Powell for a body paint extravaganza for this photo shoot with Roger Charles.

Check out the magazine article published in Scratch magazine below plus the behind the scenes you tube video of the day and the final looks.

Body artist Dee Love @ Follies Face reveals, “Personally I like to sketch my ideas out, so I know where I’m going to place the design on the body; Then I write myself a colour chart, For this pop art shoot wewanted bright, bold colours that were vivid with no sheen, and I knew with a UV mix I could achieve a comic book quirk. The superstar palette gave me a fantastic range of flesh-coloured tones to create the effectof the words exploding out of the body, I adore the size of these paints you can have nine colours of similar tones out on the table and they don’t take up loads of room and they’re great to blend with”So, when I start, I sketch out the design very quickly onPagesto the body in a mild light brown close to the natural skin colour, to give me a rough guide of placement of the words, I then get onto the background colours as soon as possible, The lighter colours such as yellow one first, so the fabulous bright red ‘Ka Pow” would go over the yellow with ease,”l always make sure the first layer hos completely dried before applying any other detail of colour over the top, such so the green or yellow highlights on ‘Ka Pow” and ‘Boom’ . As time is of the essence in body pointing I’m never left twiddling my brush, if the base coat layer is drying on one side of the body, I move over to the other and get the next background done. With ‘Ouch’ I pointed the pink wording first and the blue expression bubble round with a small flat head brush so the point appeared flat and not blobby when moving the point around curves, Of course the real coming together of the piece was the block and white outlines and highlights, these took the least time to do, but achieved a lot and were the finale of the project, In other designs it’s not always great to rely on block outlines to create this type of illusion of good work, but it does work, is the foremost quality with comics and some street art,

This pop art look was right up my alleyl”

Dee attended her body art course with Follies 10 years ago and has worked with us ever since creating some amazing pieces of art work- We are proud to have Dee on our team-

She says of our courses ” Great tuition, fabulous professional products, clear instruction and plenty of encouragement and opportunity to have a go.

A must for any budding body artiste!
