Body- and Face Art Gathering Castlefest 2019

Step inside a different world and discover countless possibilities. For years Castlefest has been a place for those who want to escape from the real world for a bit and this year we will welcome the body- and facepainters to join us. The unique ambiance of this festival is a must vistis experience!

The Body- and Face Art Gathering is a platform for every artist to express his or her creativity and for every visitor to see en enjoy every flavour this art brings.

The program will be further supplemented. Registration for artists and models is necessary at all times. Acceptation of artists and model is in order of registration.

Every artist is responsible for bringing his/her own model and products. Pre-registered models and artists for activities will receive an e-ticket shortly before the event starts. After reporting at the information desk with this ticket and a valid ID, it will give him/her access to the festival grounds. Artists and/or models are responsible for their own food and drinks. The festival has a large variation of caterers around the festival grounds.

Every festival day has its own Theme of the Day. There are painters who like the excitement of a competition and painters who happily stay away from the stress of a competition, but would like to have the professional opinion and feedback of a judge and there are painters who just want to paint and show their beautiful art. We would like to give every type of painter a chance to participate to the program, with or without competitive element. Everyone is free to work alongside the program, however, we ask every participant to respect the theme of the day. 

Battle with yourself to create your best paint and get feedback, battle with others and go to the judges for points and placement or just paint your heart out.

There will be a special “Best of Castlefest” award to a person who is active on all four days and will be noticed not only by the jugde but also with by the public. It is not necessary to join the battles for this.

Register for the workshops will be possible via this form.

If you have any other nice ideas for demo’s, experiments or group paints, please let us know at bodyandfacepaint@castlefest.com

Program

The various program components explained

Daytheme Bodypaint 
Let yourself be inspired by the theme of the day and transform your model. Be creative with all the techniques you’d like to use: sponge, brush, airbrush, glitter or special effects.

The complete package
Go nuts, create a complete look with combination of bodypaint, headpiece, clothing, accessories and fitting make-up/facepaint. Surprise your audience with a creation that is complete from top to toe.

Group Paint
Create an artwork together with other painters and models. Already a great idea or design in mind? Send us an email (bodyandfacepaint@castlefest.com, include your preference for Friday or Sunday) and send us your detailed plan before May 1st. Please note: you need to put together your own team of painters and models and pick a team leader. 

Carrousel
Together with other artists you will take turns on working with the models, within the day theme. Models will rotate between the participating artists. Required: enthusiasm and creativity. Together you will contribute to the end result of all creations.

Pressure Cooker
This component has the same goal as Daytheme Bodypaint, but only with three hours to complete. Work together with other painters, don’t lose yourself in too much details, but aim for the total image. Less time works as some sort of pressure cooker for creativity and results in remarkable surprises.

Three Colour Paint
The name says it all: pick three colours and create a (partial) bodypaint or facepaint. Experience how limitations and your own creativity work together to create something special.

Torso Paint
In this component the painter will get three cards. The first card states which colours can be used, the second the forms and the third the theme. Only the upper body of the model will be painted. You can participate on your own or together with another painter. 

Out of the box
We mean this literally!  This component expects the unexpected. Together with the other contestants you will get a few minutes to pick your materials from a box. This is the material (aids, paint, accessories) you will be using to create your (face) paint. It can be everything and swapping is allowed!

2×2 Connected
You will be working together with another painter and two models on one paint where both the models form a whole. This can be done in several ways. You can let them merge together in the paint, but it’s also possible to create them apart from each other, as long as the connection shows in the final result.

UV Paint
On Friday night we have access to a dark tent, illuminated with UV light. This is your opportunity to work with blacklight paint! Sign up fast, because we only offer a few spots for this component.
