About the Author: Thomasina Smith is a creative artist and designer who enjoys making fantastic things for kids as well as for grown-ups. Her work has appeared in many exhibitions, films and stage productions. Face and body painting can change you into someone or even something entirely different. The art form has a tradition that goes back thousands of years. In many ancient cultures, it was used to camouflage tribespeople when they went hunting, or as part of religious customs. In our society today, we use face and body painting mostly to have fun and to entertain as is the case with the projects in this book! You can paint yourself for special occasions, costume parties, school plays or to go to a wonderful street carnival. Even putting on ordinary make-up is a form of face painting. With little more than a collection of face paints, sponges and brushes, you can become a cunning leopard, an Egyptian queen, a scary vampire or even Santa Claus. So, go on and transform yourself, a friend or even your parents! There is no end of fun to be had.
