Anyway, this face painter couldn't even go on vacation without doing some face painting. I brought along a super miniature paint set specifically for "pirate night" on the ship! It consisted of a small pill box filled with 8 basic Kryolan colors, one #2 sable brush, and a little piece of my stipple sponge (for pirate stubble!)
The tiny set worked perfectly for my tiny pirates in our tiny stateroom bathroom! :-) Here are some pictures...

|I painted a parrot and sword on Toby's arms. (He had aloe on his cheeks & nose as he had a little too much sun in Grand Cayman that day!)|

Of course I would have loved to have more supplies...especially better brushes. I brought one small sable brush that had already fluffed out on me (lost it's nice pointy tip) as I figured brushes wouldn't fare well in a suitcase. So, I couldn't get much detail, but the boys loved it and that's what counts!! If I were to do it again I might bring my black Starblends to do an eye patch on them! But, they were SO tired that night, they were rubbing there eyes a lot!
