Body & Face Painting
For the little ones at this year's show - we have amazing bodypainting, facepainting and balloon modelling from the wonderful Rainbow Faces! Traditional body painting has been done for centuries. Painting with clay and other natural pigments existed in most, if not all tribal cultures. Modern body painting is now accepted as a very serious art-form and we are delighted that we will be featuring some fantastic art by award winning artists. Rainbow Faces have over 18 years of experience in producing exceptional and unique art and they will also be on hand providing our visitors with some amazing face painting too!
One of the UK’s most loved and popular Henna body artists, Catharine ‘Hennacat’ Hinton is back again at the show to adorn you with fantastic hand-drawn all natural henna. Suitable for all ages over 6, Henna has been used for thousands of years in over 40 countries and across many cultures to celebrate and beautify the body and hair.
As well as being a gorgeous art form, suitable for everyone, which lasts around ten days, Henna is a great way to test a new tattoo placement, temporarily fill in some of your gaps or try a design idea. Catharine only uses pure, organic henna, imported from trusted, carefully sourced, suppliers from around the world, mixed with lemon juice and essential oils.
These few ingredients blend magically to provide a semi-permanent dye that stains skin in patterns drawn on by the artist. Although Catharine has plenty of designs that will appeal to you, she is always up for a challenge, so feel free to bring along your own design.
