Today I dragged out my face paints for the first time in 3 years and did a little bit of practise on the locals. That was quite fun so (needing some more blank canvasses) I rang the cousins and got them and their friends down here for some more. What I discovered was that :
a) Zali will make and excellent goth, or emo, when she grows up
b) Jett's strawberry blonde hair goes quite well with orange skin (surprisingly)
c) I need more practise! Especially on my line work. And base colouring. And details. So everything really.
The last time I did Zali (all those years ago) I'm pretty sure she wanted to be a butterfly - this time she was very keen on being a witch. The first spell she cast when I was done was one to make me a better 'Paint Facer' (as the kids call it) - which was more done for my own peace of mind rather than to be insulting I think as they were all very appreciative of my amateur efforts.
