Paintopia Christmas Jumper Competition 2017

Festive Greetings! This year was my first time entering Paintopia Christmas jumper competition, open to all painters worldwide  Entitled OH DEER!Much to Rudolf’s surprise, Santa has borrowed his nose as a light on his sleigh! Poor Rudolf.  

This mini video is on my You Tube channel :

Myself and lovely model  Claire Hindel, wanted to go for a humours take on it. After a bit of research on funny jumpers, I was inspired with the play on words, Oh Deer.  I used a mix of top brand paints – DiamondFX, Mistair, Global Art and Paradise Aqua paints.


Progress shoots


It took me about 3.5 hours. I was quite limited on time, and as always with my body painting could have done with that extra half hour for finishing touches.  Nevertheless, it was fun to do and pleased with the end result.  One of the challenging parts was to actually create a You Tube channel, not my forte, but got there in the end. Result will be announced on Christmas eve. No i-deer where I’ve come – however I would say I think I would actually buy this jumper myself!

Merry Christmas to you all.
