Face Painting – Kary Blaney

Face Painting


Here we go! This is where the dormant artist within me gets its fulfilment… In the world of the living canvas, it’s one thing to paint a picture on paper (or stones) which is static, never moving. It is quite another thing to paint on a living breathing canvas… Trying to figure out how to fit the design around their particular features…

Some of my designs such as cheek art, are simple whereas others are more intricate and the face IS the form for the picture… the person is becoming something… other…

You’ll see a LOT of lion pictures below, this is because I live in beautiful British Columbia, and our football team is the BC Lions. So the last couple of years (since I got into face painting) a group of us go down to watch a game all decked out as lions!

I only use FDA approved paints and/or make-up designed specifically for use on skin.

I can be hired for:

  • birthday parties
  • sports events
  • halloween
  • Or just because 🙂
