Clowning yourself to Death

12 Feb


So i’m finally putting up the Clown Project pictures, from trials to exam shots. The brief was: “a clown”, the rest, costume included was up to me. This is the Character i created, not too colourful, not happy, not sad. A classy dandy clown, serious, slightly mean and a tad naughty.  Maybe quite like me.

Last Face-paint class before the holidays..

Witches n’ Skulls.. (and Snow).

Today’s course. Loved it. We worked with the paint differently this time: less flat applications, more shading using the paint much drier and working in layers. Preferred to work this way, the effect is much more interesting, although i get a feeling that it might get messy much quicker.. hence this course now, after we’ve familiarized ourselves with the tools and products + techniques.

Pretty interesting to note that an old person for a theater makeup would be done like the witch (minus the ugly dark spot), using a neutral color palette.

Face Painting from this week. Self explanatory!

This week in makeup, part III.

The Face Painting class round #2, even more difficult, but truly enjoyable (and stressful, but i suppose that is a good sign!).
So that’s it for this weeks classes, fun has really started! ..

This week in makeup, part II.

So this week we started the face painting classes, which were lot more harder that it seems, i think it might even have been the hardest so far. But i loved it: doing it and being a clown too.. too bad i had to wash it out so soon.. although the washing out part is never all that easy either: came out of school with a green ear and went to a pole emploi meeting in the afternoon with some blue in my hair and sparkles too – which of course i realized only once i came back home, after the meeting. oh well!!
