The sparkling Facade-sponsored Freehand Glitter  Tattoo competition was fun too.

I went for a sort of equestrian necklace feel, a bit vintage and slightly steampunk, (Steampunk Stallion, I think we called it) so I got to use both the horse-head and the hat I’d made for previous paints again! Louise Neal looked fab, thanks so much for modelling.

My favourite was the Professors & Apprentice Bodypaint, where an ‘experienced’ Prof like me is teamed up with a newbie (in my case, Nicky Gardener) to produce a body on a “Classic British Children’s Story’ theme. After a short facebook discusiion, Nic designed the body.

I spent ages making a paper wig, which she added a fab book-page-covered ship to. (We then had to slice into the wig to fit it to James’ head!)

We had a ball, asking our last-minute model James (we had booked and planned to paint a girl) to turn every 20 minutes or so and each continuing painting what the other person had started.  All whilst madly singing “everything is awesome!”

The last minute panic to tit-tape the many ‘blackbeard’  plaits she’d made onto his shorts was insane, thanks to Michelle for dispensing the tape!

After another buzzing catwalk show (with public watching too as Sunday was the ‘open’ day) our Treasure Island came 2nd! James really worked the paint, as always.

We were just possibly a bit excited!

As many have said its like the best family gathering ever! It just keeps getting bigger and better!
