Day 57 - Tri-Cities Flea Market

I know I told you that I was going to do a tutorial, but it was a slow day and I only got half of the tutorial made. So I am going to shoot the other part tomorrow and then have it uploaded that night.

I was able to sell everything I brought with me, but did not make as much I would have hoped.

I did do a few face paintings, so here they are:

It's supposed to be a car!

Day 56 - Back Home & Ice Tutorial

So I am back home and yesterday I mailed out the prizes for the Friendly/Fiendish clown Contest winners. Shannon should receive hers on Saturday, but it might be Monday. Can't wait to see what she does with it. Ana Arthur will receive hers withing 3 weeks as it is being sent all the way to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Really can't wait to see what she does with the book!

Now tomorrow I will be at the flea market and will be doing some tutorials on some female models. This will help as I look stupid in girly swirls! Now since I will be there all day, the video will not be up until 7 or 8 PM, late day but well worth the wait. You will see!

Now todays tutorial I talked about is requested from Camille Eastin on Facebook and she wanted to see me do "Ice" in white, grey and black. I decided it just wouldn't look right unless I added a little blue to it and I think it came out pretty good. Take a look at the pictures and don't forget to visit my New Website to see the tutorial,

Day 55 - Finally Another Tutorial!

Okay, it is the last day of painting windows here in Pigeon Forge, TN. We are heading home as soon as we finish and we will not be stopping until I get to the Post Office and mail out my Prizes for the Friendly/Fiendish Clown Contest. I have waited too long to send them out, so I am going to do that today.

Last night I made 2 other Tutorial videos along with the one from this video. They complete the basics that you need to know for facepainting. I will now be making tutorials that cover more detailed faces which you all have requested and will blow your mind.

Unfortunately, I did not take pictures before washing my face, so there are no photos for me to post. The photos in the tutorials were still shot That I cropped straight from the video. I promise to have pics of the next face.

Man, am I tired. I may need to take a break, but I will not stop making videos for you! When I am done with my 365 Day blog, I will take a break and probably only have 2 videos a week (Tues & Thurs) But only when I am done with this massive project. It is a learning experience for me to become better with the camera, audience and technology.

So I bid you ado and will talk to you tomorrow. Enjoy!

Day 52 - Subscriber & Colors

So after my debut of my Tutorials Website, I have received one paid subscription already. The subscription is for 3 months and they have received a 15 Day Free Trial with this subscription that will extend their preview for an extra day past the sneak peek. 

I do have an incentive for you! As I am doing these tutorials, I am also looking to do workshops. If you would like to have a FREE 6 Month Subscription to my website, all you have to do is host a workshop for me. The Host is free, but has to supply travel & lodging cost and a location for the workshop. So if you are interested in this deal, contact me.

I have a new tutorial up on the use of Colors, so go check it out at

As I am Katmandew and I have a fondness for cats, the first few tutorials I am doing will be feline faces. It is easier for me to teach with something so familiar and I will go into detail with tomorrows video.

So I did a cat face teaching how to use colors together and this is the outcome:

Day 51 - NEW Video Format & Website

As per suggestion from some of my videos, I have decided to go a different direction with my 365 day blog. Some have commented that I am stressing myself out doing videos everyday. I say, it is worth it. I also have read that I need to be more professional in my videos so that I can sell myself for workshops and I totally agree with this statement. 

With that being said, I have a new format for my videos. there are 2 videos I will make a day out of one recording. The first video will be my YouTube daily video and will include the beginning and ending of the video edited together. The second video will be the tutorial that I do in the middle. It is not really taking on too much, it is just reworking what I am already doing.

This is going to take my usual 30-45 minute videos and break them down into 2. The YouTube video will be between 5 & 10 minutes long sometimes a bit longer, but not over 15 minutes. The second video will be between 30 & 60 minutes and might be longer depending on the tutorial.

Now I bet you are wondering, where the second video is going to go? That is the part where you come in. I am putting the second video on a website that is SUBSCRIPTION based. This will be my KatmandewFBA 365 Tutorial website where, if you have a subscription, can view all my tutorials over & over again at your leisure. The subscriptions are very minimal right now and start at $1 per day, $5 per week, $20 per month and so on and so forth. I know a daily subscription is ridiculous, but if you are trying it for the first time, why pay for more than one day? I do have Free Trials on some of the subscriptions for those who are die hard fans of my work, so you can see if you like it enough to keep following. Also, anytime I make a tutorial, which is almost daily, I will be adding it to my website, so there will be tons of tutorials being added on a constant basis. Some of the tutorials may not even be in the daily video and the only way to see them is to have a subscription.

But enough rambling, you want to know what the website is so you can check it out. Well here it is, and right now I am doing a Sneak Peek for the next 2 weeks starting today. So go check it out and let me know what you think.

P.S. There is only one tutorial up right now, but I am working on getting more together to add to it!

Now you want to see the photos of the face I created with todays tutorial. It is just a simple tiger face I have painted before in some videos, but it is a great one to get started with if you are a beginner, because it teaches you sponging, blending & line work. I did not go into to much detail so people can practice it and get it done in 3-5 minutes. So here are the photos:
