The Kristin Olsson Collection - Face Paints Australia

 
"Having a background in art and design, as well as working as a graphic designer for nearly 20 years - I absolutely love working with colours! As a designer and through my personal art, both on canvas and through face painting, I find inspiration in everything I see around me - especially from nature.
I fell in love with FPA the very first time I tried them. They have such a wonderful collection of colours that are just beautiful to work with! I was truly honoured when I was asked to collaborate with them, and I am so excited to finally present my very first collection of colours.
When I worked on my collection I did not just want to create beautiful colour combinations - I also wanted to add another element to them to make them even more practical to use. Our little face painting models often have small faces and out on gigs I found that I would often be left a little frustrated that I wasn’t able to load my small sponge with all the beautiful colours on my cakes. So I thought, why not change the direction of the paint so that a small butterfly sponge could fit just perfectly? And not only does it fit perfectly - the size also means your cake will wear down more evenly.
And for those who know my art, you also know how much I love painting flowers. There are so many beautiful colour combinations out there! However I was struggling to fit all the colours on my smaller brushes, and again, my cakes would wear down unevenly. I found myself experimenting with how I could solve this problem, so after a lot of testing and experimenting I came up with the Duo Strokes. Not only are they versatile and beautiful, with different colour combinations depending on which side of the cake you use - you can also use a large brush for a beautiful and unique colour combination.
I hope you enjoy creating with my collection as much as I do!"
