Suzy Sparkles Talks about Face Painting on the Morning News

Suzy Sparkles on The Morning Blend on TODAY’STMJ4 Channel

I know there are some Wolfe paints available as Halloween paints, I am not sure I would recommend any of the Halloween paints or makeups without knowing how they compare with Snazaroo, Mehron, or the Wolfe Brothers paints available to face painters. I would love the local news to invite me to be on TV to demonstrate face painting or balloons along with promoting my services.

Zombie Kitty Face Painting

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

FancifulFaces presents a Cute Zombie Kitty Face Painting Tutorial with Google Glass view!

She called the design “Cute” I don’t see cute when I look at the end result and only a bit of Kitty. I think it is well done and something I haven’t seen before. However, since the design took more than 10 minutes to complete, I am not sure how much faster it could be done. I try to keep my designs less than 5 minutes.

Balloon Manor 2014

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

I read this on BalloonHQ yesterday… Balloon Manor will be back before Twist & Shout, in Rochester, NY.

They want to continue the exploration of fairy tales and create a full scale installation of Jack & the Beanstalk, entirely out of balloons! They are planning a four-story beanstalk complete with a Giant’s Castle in the clouds.

From their website…
Q. So what is Balloon Manor?

A. In the past, Balloon Manor was a giant 10-room, 10,000 square foot haunted house made entirely out of balloons! Over 100,000 balloons were used to create each haunted castle, and all of the amazing creations inside including: marvelous monsters and giant ghosts, creaking castle walls and freaky furniture, gruesome greenery and much much more.

This year, Balloon Manor will be a single giant-scale balloon installation spanning five stories of the Sibley Building. While you won’t be able to walk through the castle at the top of the bean stalk, you will be able to view this unique air-filled sculpture from the open balconies. And best of all, it’s free to see! And you’ve really got to see it in person to appreciate the artistry and hard work that goes into this incredible, ephemeral project.

Q. When will the next Balloon Manor take place?

A. We are currently scheduled to build the new Balloon Manor February 1-4, 2014 and have it open for public viewing Feb 5-9.

Gold Lion Face Painting

How To Do Lion Face Paint For Kids
by ivillage

This is the first time seeing a lion done with gold paint. Actually, I have seen very few videos of designs using gold paint. It gives it an interesting look, but I suspect it could also be done with a yellow or light beige color as well. It is a fairly simple design and does look like a young lion cub.
