Carnival hype at Mayureena’s Party

July 20th, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Birthday, Clowning

It is every child’s dream to bring the carnival to their party. Imagine life-size bouncy inflatables with a sea of colourful balls, coconut trees and huts for hideouts. Imagine booth games with prizes to giveaway. Imagine a counter full of all the candies you can ever think of or imagine, every colour, size and flavour. Imagine a clown and magician walking around dizzying your little friends with awesome tricks and amazing balloon figurines. Imagine a fun photobooth to capture memories and magic of your party.

Mayureena’s a really lucky girl! She had all that plus the company of friends and family at her 1st birthday party. Thanks Mayureena, her mommy and daddy for allowing us to make her birthday a treat for her and her little friends.

Enjoy the photos!

One of a very famous Hobo clown is Charlie Chaplin. A Hobo, or also known as the Tramp is very much of a “human-like” and “human-feel” type of clown.

Characteristics of a Hobo clown:
Is the lowliest of clowns. Fall guy for the Whiteface and Auguste clowns. Downtrodden in expression and movements. People care about the melancholy Hobo and want to make him happy.

His makeup consist of:
Upper half of face flesh tone, stubby beard, neutral mouth, white eyes and mouth, pink or red nose.

A Hobo’s costume:
Tattered and worn suit, shabby, often patched, usually too big. Wears a hat.

The Auguste clown is my favourite. He tends to create ‘sparks’ during clown acts and the White Face and the Hobo is always at his mercy.

An Auguste has the following characteristics:
Is the opposite of whiteface. He is on the receiving end of whiteface jokes, and because nothing ever goes right for him, people love him and identify with him. He personifies the human condition. Slapstick, prankster, nothing goes right for him, takes the falls but can stand.

His makeup is:
Very exaggerated features, primarily natural flesh tones with white around exaggerated eyes and mouth.

His wardrobe is:
Bizarre, exaggerated, usually two piece suit, colourful (eg big pants, three ties, tiny hat, oversized shoes, colourful wigs). Colour combination is out.

Clowning & Ballooning Seminar

July 28th, 2008 No Comments   Posted in Clowning, Training

Splattered Paint conducted a clowning and ballooning seminar at Subang Jaya AG church on Saturday. In conjunction with the church’s missions week, they wanted to explore the creative side of ministry through clowning and ballooning.

Before the seminar commenced, Hoopee entertained the crowd with balloon sculpting, silly skits and a whole lot of goofing! The young and old were thrilled to have a clown in their midst. Apparently it’s been a long time since an animated character stepped into their premises.

That’s Hoopee!

Adding colour to the carnival, we set up a face painting and attracted huge crowd. Busying our fingers and imagination, we painted all kinds of icons based on request from butterflies to cars to penguins. It’s exciting to see how a little paint and colour instantly dazzles the children’s eyes (even adults for that matter!)

Happy customer:)

The seminar lasted for 2 hours and by the end of the session, the participants were asking for more. We basically covered basics of clowning (ie. gestures, different clowns and their characters, make up etc).

And for ballooning, we got straight into action pumping up pencil balloons and twisted it to make a dog, a mouse and a flower.

We can see how easily captivating all of these are to the participants. It’s really fun! We’d be back for more in the future… (a longer seminar we hope!) If you are interested to pick up a new cool skills, give us a tinkle, the Splattered Paint team would be happy to share our knowledge, and many clowning hilarious clowning stories!

If you are a white face clown, you will possess some of these personalities:
Exaggerates childlikeness, vulnerable lover, riskier, truster, idea creator, clever, smart, mischievous, playful, most cheerful of clown types but still has tears and compassion, in all acts they react in dismay to the Auguste’s stupidity.

Your makeup has the following:
Neat, classic style, all white face, simple lines for facial features. Mainly uses black and red colours but may have others, such as blue.

Your costume is:
Neat looking, one-piece jumpsuit or two piece loose fitting pyjama type garment, outfit is usually highlighted with a ruff around the neck and large pompons on the front, colour combination is simple white gloves.

So, are you a White Face clown?
