Stelios, thank you for your efforts. This was very informative and very helpful for me--I'm not the best at face painting and I'm always looking for ways to improve.

Very informative. It would be better if they could have shown better close-ups of the head, say, when he said "check progress", show a full screen image of the head.

it was a video I may have just as well watched with my eyes closed. good information, but just a guess as to what the painter was doing.

I so appreciate these kinds of instructional videos as they are the knowledge that we all can relate to. Not to mention use. Heck, it takes me longer than twenty minutes some times just deciding what colours my figurine will end up being.

With you on that one Southpier. It would have been nice if I could have seen what was happening with the head. All I saw was him dabbing paint on it but it was that small I couldn't tell what colour it was or what he'd done. Great idea as my face painting really does need improving drastically but sadly I learnt nothing from the video as I couldn't see anything that was going on.

What everyone else said. Better closeups are needed. I don't really know what he did half the time, but I appreciate the tips and will try to incorporate them into my work.

And it was out of focus.
