We will be adding a few more Ben Nye products to our website this week.
Ben Nye MagiCake face and body paints in 6 colour palette $32.90 and 12 colour palette $62.90. It is great for hot climates as it doesn't go "gloopy" in the heat and doesn't smudge as much in hot sweaty conditions.
I can also order in individual colours if requested, allow 4 weeks for delivery for special orders.
We also have the Ben Nye Sparklers glitter, $8.90 in colours, Opal Ice, Gold Prism, Silver Prism and Galactic Violet. More colours to come in the new year, the tester palette has caught everyone's eye when they visit Limelight Company and I can't wait to use it for this weekend's face painting gigs.

What a week we have had at Limelight Company!!
Wiser Oner, www.wiserbodygraffiti.com/
a Graffiti Artist who discovered face and body painting a number of years ago was at Limelight Company to teach for his "Graffiti Down Under" tour. He had his Perth students whipping up graffiti storms and showed us so many new techniques and designs to use on our face painting/ body painting jobs and projects, I am sure he made a huge impression on all that attended his classes and we can't wait for him to visit Perth the next time he tours Australia. His 3rd day of workshops at Limelight Company was "Fine Art Body Painting" and the results were magnificent, he was very impressed by the Perth painters who attended his workshops and rightfully so.
I know he will be happy to come and visit Limelight Company again to see his "baby". He left a very special piece of artwork on the wall in our workshop space. He wanted a large wall to paint, we had a very large empty wall and the rest is now beautiful history!
If you are in Perth, you really need to come and see it in person, it is stunning.
Thank you Wiser, it was such a pleasure to have you here in Perth, you have left us all busting to paint something and I can't wait to see what projects you have inspired in everyone that took part in your workshops.
