With Aesthetic VideoSource’s new “Create Faces™” DVD series, professional face painter and clown, Sharon Neilson, shows you how to paint a variety of creative looks, whether you are dressing up for Halloween, a masquerade, or another special occasion, or just looking to expand your repertoire as a professional face painter working fairs and birthday parties.
In each video – Animal Faces, Halloween Classics, Halloween Horror, Masquerade, and Holidays & Seasons – Sharon demonstrates how to paint eight different full-face designs that are quick and easy. Using water-based face paints, Sharon shows how to use sponges and brushes to apply the base, accent colors, and details. She demonstrates how to control the brush to achieve different brush strokes and how to embellish the looks with fluorescent powders, sparkles, and gems. Sharon also discusses supplies, sanitation, and clean-up. If you’re interested in professional face painting, you’ll appreciate her tips on working with children and marketing.
In Animal Faces (1 Hr. 25 Mins.), Neilson provides full-face designs for popular requests: a cat, butterfly, monkey, panda, rabbit, tiger, and two dog/puppy variations.
In Halloween Classics (1 Hr. 45 Mins.), she demonstrates how to paint classical Halloween looks, including a clown, pirate, princess, witch, devil, scarecrow, alien monster, and superhero.
In Halloween Horror (1 Hr. 52 Mins.), the spooky is amped up for more Halloween favorites: Frankenstein, living dead (2 variations), mummy, skull, half-skull, werewolf, and vampire. Neilson also shows how to create wounds and bruises with face paint.
In Masquerade (1 Hr. 32 Mins.), get ready to masquerade as a butterfly, fairy, or harlequin with eight different full-face designs and gem and feathers…à la Mardi Gras style.
And, for year-round celebrations, Neilson provides looks for different holidays and seasons, including Valentines, St. Patrick’s, Easter, July 4th, Summer, Autumn, Christmas, and Winter, in the Holidays & Seasons DVD (1 Hr. 42 Mins.).
Sharon Neilson has been a professional face painter, clown, and balloon sculptor for over 20 years. She owns Changing Faces, an entertainment/party service company with multiple award-winning artists, serving the northern Utah area. She has competed in various competitions, winning first places for her innovative face painting designs and for master balloon artistry.
“I love face painting because I love working with kids,” says Neilson. “Just seeing their responses – their laughs and their smiles – makes it all worth while.”
“What Sharon does is amazing. Her finished designs look beautiful and complex, but they are really simple to create, even for someone who doesn’t consider themselves artistic,” says Shirley Erickson Gorospe, president of Aesthetic VideoSource. “Sharon creates full-face art. You can tell that face painting is her passion.”
