i paint my face on by bailey--elizabeth i paint my face on by bailey--elizabeth
full view please

this makeup was actually creepy for me to do, because i really, really hate clowns. they terrify me. and i didn't even have mr. happyharlequin this time to keep me company.

apparently i'm a masochist.

* before anyone inevitably brings it up, this is not supposed to be a reference/homage/anysortofthing related to heath ledger's joker. it is simply me as a clown. shudder.

even though i hate clowns (you are right, they are scary!) i totally adore the joker. that's strange.

hey there, just wanted to say i really love your piece, the look you're giving the camera makes it feels as though you are really preparing for something, its almost like war paint!

also, I was just wondering if you would give me permission to use this image for inspiration for my A-Level exam prep as the project i am doin involves clowns. i have no intention to pass the work off as my own, i simply wish to use it for research :)

...I'm happily enjoying your work when I hit a nugget of GOLD! : You Hate Clowns!!!
ME TOO!!!! It seems we both have suffered some trauma somewhere down the line...
Mine happened when I was about 8 years old. Each year we had a "Crazy Days" parade featuring all the towns business people dressed up in costume.....anyway I
looked down the line and here comes an old fashioned fire truck coming with 10-12
Clowns on it throwing candy.Evil grins all,they were hitting kids in the face with this candy. I got mad and gathered as much as I could off the street and threw it back in theirs!!! HA HA!
Jokes on them!

did you use actual paint for your make-up? like, acrylic paint?
you've probably already answered those questions, so just bear with me D:
i really like how you emphasized all the little pock-marks and edges of your face - instead of drawing out your (almost-to-none) flaws it adds tons to the atmosphere. <3
