With over 450 colour photo’s over 160 pages, this is a comprehensive guide for any face painter interested in learning new skills and techniques.

I got this book after seeing it at Paintopia. It's great for my students who are very new to body painting. Feedback from them is that they love it as it breaks down techniques and they can really understand the concepts. Pictures are very clear and the instructions are very user freindly overall a great book.

I have loved having this book! It is so full of information! I have painted faces for many years and am now wanted to do more complicated looks that seem to come naturally out of artists heads. I really needed a great resource for all the ideas that I have. I am amazed as I look through the pages. Everything I need to know is in this book! I am practicing and am inspired! Anyone wanting to begin or learn more would benefit from this book. My son in the 8th grade is using it also to understand more about art and drawing. I also like the fact that it has a wire ring binding. I can turn to the page and lay it flat to refer back to. It is a great artists book!!!

This is one of the best face painting books I have ever seen, it is massive! and packed full of information about how to paint realistic looking designs. There is information about shadows and highlights, textures, shiny or matt objects, bugs, flowers, folds. Everything I want to know is right here in this book. I can't stress how big it is, 160 pages! and there is something good on every page. If you like to sit down and try new things that you can then translate into your working face painting designs then this book is perfect for you. I will be referring back to this book time after time. Well done Gretchen Fleener for putting everything you need to know in one book!
