Des Moines Register 09-15-06 Get it on! Paint your Cy, Hawk game face By ERIN CRAWFORD REGISTER STAFF WRITER What's in style this Saturday? A whole face full of paint. Here are several designs worth emulating this weekend, created by Tracy Fuller of Innovative Events Inc. and her father, Larry Schweizer. The two have years of face-painting experience, including painting the faces of Iowa State Fair attendees. Tips: Perhaps not quite as humiliating and heartbreaking as a football loss is the streaky effect of face paint sweating off your face. Fuller uses Liquitex Acrylic Colors, applied with a paintbrush to a clean face. The paint, available at The Art Store in Des Moines, stays better than any face paint, Fuller says. It's a little more expensive than drugstore face paints; however, you'll only need a few colors to do any of these designs. Clean brushes with a cup of water when changing colors, or wet the brush if paint is too thick. The paint dries in about three minutes. Be careful of clothing while painting - this stuff won't come off fabric. But at the end of the day, it can be removed with soap and water. Go Cy! Fuller starts this Cyclone illustration with the black outline, then fills in the cardinal red and then gold. She recommends starting illustrations high on the cheek closer to the nose, rather than the ear. "Otherwise they can't see it," she said. Hawkeye tradition: This simple black Hawkeye symbol also works best if you outline first. Go back in and fill it in later. If you have trouble getting proportions right, try making or buying a stencil. The full face: Start with the lighting bolt down the center, then fill in the swath of background color. When you're finished painting, add the word Iowa or ISU.
