FAB Mega Jam

 Feb 2014

This time at Fab Mega Jam Jennie was launching her business as Cameleon (Face & Body paint) UK supplier so we didn’t have time to bodypaint. We left her home at a horribly early hour to get to Cambridge in time to set up in the vendors lounge.

 I tried to help sell things but also did a few face-paints to test out the new Brierley Thorpe colour-block one-stroke cakes – FAB – and the new petal and one stroke brushes. Those I ADORE – short fat stubby lime-green handles which make it easier for me to hang onto them (butterfingers and bad wrist). The petal brush in several sizes has already replaced my old favourites, and the smaller flats are firmly into my 1-stroke brush collection.

AND they had the 1st of the new Cameleon glitetr gels, here I was testing the gold. Everyone else liked it too – I think jennie sold most of her brushes and a fair bit of paint!

All the usual suspects were there and Dan was wowing everyone with his balloon creations – recognise this?

FAB Mega Jam & Paintopia Sparkly Alien BodyPaint

Feb 2013

Jennie & I wanted to do a promo paint for Paintopia’s Sci Fi & Superhero theme, so agreed with the lovely KJ we would do a demo-paint at her event, the face paint & balloon Fab Mega Jam. Also, it was to intro the Isnap Events boys to what one of our industry gatherings was like, before they got thrown into the deep end with Paintopia!


As several models we’d asked had to cancel for one reason or other, we met  Louise at Dunstan Hall to drive her to Cambridge. She’d never been painted before but was brilliant and looked so cute in the bald cap (our 1st go at a proper bald cap). Poor Jennie had to do all the driving – I was pregnant so not allowed to as well as being very sick:/ (So hair etc worse mess than usual!)


We were painting in a cosy room so had Jam go-ers popping in & out as we worked to watch and question. Lou coming to lunch in her dressing gown caused a bit of a giggle!

Despite James’ hate of glitter the boys took some amazing shots and even persuaded Lou to pose outdoors. In February!!
