I was oh so smooth sailing around Azel Art yesterday, looking for mounting supplies for my new purple onion stamps which are supah cool. I was also looking for beeswax, but unfortunately, they had just sold the one dish of it that the seemlingly chronically hungover sales- oh heck. Let's call him a "sales artist." Anyway, this dude said the beeswax had been sitting on the shelf since the 70's. Big week for beeswax, apparently.
I wandered through the clearance section (shelf) to dig (literally) through the items. Found a delicious assortment of wax crayons in off colors and remembered seeing some really cool things on her blog and I remembered she mentioned "crayons" of some sort, so these, being on clearance, are OF COURSE the sort! Hooray! I pick up a nice grey white, a deep pink, and a limey green, and carry them bouyantly to the counter.
Now the aformentioned sales artist who is checking out, not one, not two, but THREE people at the same time, says in his groovy kind of voice, "Oh man, these are really fun." " Yeah..." I say, hoping that I will have the opportunity here to NOT look like the complete haus frau that I am in my stained (with coffee not paint) pink hoodie, ponytail, complete lack of unusual piercings and tatoos, and little girl with pink bow in tow, "I've seen these used on some really cool things."
says the clerk.
I react. (see above)
I then try to play it cool, and look at Emma, as if this was all HER idea.
But inside I'm going
So what lesson did we learn here today kids? Face painting isn't just for children anymore. It takes a real arteest to come up with such a clever use for these puppies. And lesson two? There is nothing you can do that is so idiotic that it is not worth blogging about!!!
