We are professional body artists who specialize in facepainting. As such, we primarily paint children at parties and special events, Please visit our website! http://lookingglasspainting.com/#gallery

We’ve long been friends with members of the Burning Man community and have attended several of the past Vancouver area events.. The paint we use is a water based make-up formulated specifically for performance arts giving protection against perspiration induced smudging from activity and hot stage lights.

3. Flaming Tulips Chris H$80
Interactive Fire Art, with poofer flame effects

4. Gingerbread Man Tanya E $75
I would like to make gingerbread burning man cookies (pre baked at home) and then bring the supplies for everyone to decorate their own ‘burner’ cookie and of course eat them!! I have my mom’s family recipe for butterscotch ginergerbread and it is delicious!

5 Ice Sculpture Delayne Corbett $100
I went to Burning Man for the first time this year. While I was there I carved an ice sculpture. I would like to carve a sculpture at the Dust Off. Can you give me a grant to make this happen. One block of ice (40x20x1Oinches) costs about $100 plus delivery. I would love to do a live ice carving session. I need power and lights and some outside space to operate my chainsaw. After completion (2-3 hours) the carving can be moved indoors and displayed.

6. Lite Brite Ron S $125
This plywood sculpture, about the dimension of a standard house door, is 6 inches in depth and incorporates four black light florescent UV units inside. A total of 225 inch and a half holes in the outer surface are used to accommodate UV fluorescing coloured plastic shot glasses to create a Lite Brite toy effect, allowing a person to write messages or make graphic statements by moving around the coloured glasses.

7. Mount Erupto Jonathon $100
The project is a volcano hot tub, which sort of speaks for itself. A fully useable hot tub made to look like a volcano (from 3 sides). and will include a number of additional elements including: a smoke machine, lighting, music (if possible), food and drink, and performance -type elements like capturing tourists and virgins and sacrificing them to Mt. Erupto.

8. Sound Frond David M $300
The Sound Frond Project is an autonomous interactive Sound and Light installation. Reminiscent of live viola and cello music from Burn in the Forest 5 years ago, this sculpture will recreate these hauntingly beautiful sounds using sensors to detect the position and activity of people in its environment. http://soundfrond.com/
