    Face painter Michelle Johnson demonstrates how to paint a butterfly.

    Michelle Johnson: Hi! I am Michelle Johnson, the Face Paint Lady based out of the Baltimore, Washington, Annapolis and Mid-Atlantic region of the United States and I would like to work with you today on a beautiful video that will show you how to create your very own fantastic face painted butterflies. We will talk about the sponges that you will need and the techniques that you will use, that you will apply to your painted person, in wonderful wing patterns, we will talk about the brushes that you will need, the synthetic fibers and the round tips and that you bring to your wonderful color palette and use to create the details of your beautiful painted butterfly.

    We will talk about the glitters, the jewels and the techniques and the brush strokes that will allow you to create a flying rainbow. I have been painting in Mid-Atlantic region, since 1991, I have painted 40,000 plus children and adults and since I have lived in the same community for all of this time, it s been an absolute pleasure to have met and watched and painted children and their families. I paint at the National Gallery of Art, The International Spy Museum, festivals, parties, the Waltrous gallery and every place that people are looking to have a fun time, enjoy themselves and interact with their community. I look forward to seeing you around town. Thanks, see you soon.
