Two girls with painted faces looking like characters from Avatar.

Nothing says you’re my best bud like drawing on your mate’s face. While you might have already tried painting aided by a delicious drop or two, this time why not make your plus one your canvas?

Paint your mate to resemble a resident of Pandora at Paintvine’s awesome new painting experience. Held this February 14 at Auckland’s Platform 8, why not skip the fancy dinner and get up close and personal with your partner to spice up your Valentine’s day.

Never fear Wellingtonians, we’ve got you covered too! The artists will be coming to the Hotel Bristol on March 11 to take you and your date to the magical world of Pandora.

You will be provided with all the painting supplies including canvas, paint, brushes, and aprons. Pro tip: Avoid wearing your Sunday best as things are bound to get messy.

Let your creative juices flow with a brush in hand and a drink in the other. You will be guided by the head artist and director of BODYFX, Myrthe Heydenrijk, who was a contestant in New Zealand’s first reality makeup show - Glow up.
