World Bodypainting Festival

For the past two years, I have been teaching myself body painting and special effects makeup. I have participated in the National Bodypaint Championship and created numerous creatures and a huge variety of body paint subject matter.  
   I would love to have the opportunity to take part in the World Bodypaint Festival this summer in Austria. However, it would be a very expensive endeavor and in order for me to take time from work as well as buy supplies for the makeup and make the trip fund as well, I would need to have some help. 
  I feel that the fantasy creatures that I make and the body paintings that I do, are a positive expression of the energy I see in the person being painted. It is pure creativity and I think something the world can use more of! Please visit my website to see much more of my work: melissathompsonart.com

  I want to thank you in advance for helping to make this dream happen. I know that the hard work I have put into learning these crafts will pay off when I see the smiling faces of the viewers of my work.
