Issue 4 - February Welcome to the 4th issue of Brush Strokes Magazine which we hope will brighten up those midwinter blues! This month we have features on 2 fabulous European artists, Mandy Lawrence from England and French bodypainter, Nelly Recchia, as well as reviews, an article on passing the FACE test and some more step-by-step faces for you to try. 
 
The site continues to evolve, and this month we´ve added an events calendar detailing conventions and festivals worldwide which we shall add to as we find more events.  Readers' Corner has expanded to include a Question & Answer section and Magic Moments so please feel free to contribute to these sections.  Send us any queries you have about any aspects of face and body painting and we´ll do our best to answer.  Magic Moments is for you to tell us all about any amusing incidents you´ve had whilst painting - we´ve all got at least one story, so let's yours.
