Making a Magical Facepainting Chair from Scratch

             For fair season this year, I really wanted to try something different for my booth.  When I found this old chair backed shaped shelf with stars on it at the thrift store, I decided to see if there was a way to turn it into a Magical Facepaint Chair.   With the help of Craigslist, I found a perfect 30″ stool base (which no one else wanted because the color was so odd).   With the help of my sister in law Jennie (a structural engineer of all things) and my nephew Dean Everett, we were able to create a Magical Facepaint chair from scratch (which also swivels).

Stay tuned for facepainting with ms Anna this summer at fairs, special events, and private birthday parties.  For more information on hiring ms Anna for your event, please check out   http://www.msAnnaArt.com  Summer season weekends are almost completely booked and weekdays are filling up fast.   Please message for availability right away.

I make designs for boys and girls (all ages welcome).  Everything from fairy princesses, butterflies and pandas to pirates, aliens and dragons.  I am also pretty good with funny mustaches.   For parties and events, I can create custom designs based on your theme and color scheme.   At a standard 1.5 hour birthday party, I can paint 18 full faces (as seen on my postcard).  All paint is professional grade, coconut based body paint.

Ms Anna painting for Gerard Rodriguez and Marisa Bucheit at their birthday party last friday at CAD West; What an honor to get to paint for them! Instead of painting one painting of the two of them, I decided to make one painting for each of them. At the party, lucky guests also got to hear the debut of Marisa’s new Opera trio Tres Belles. check out more of Marisa’s work on her webpage: http://www.marisabuchheit.com/
