True Colours Shining Through
A young Auckland woman’s aspirations to create a business out of face paint have been realised with New Zealand’s first ever team-specific face paint decorating the faces of hundreds of netball supporters during the National Bank Cup.
Sarah Norrie’s ‘True Colours’ face paints distinctly set fans apart because they come with specific colours, application directions and designs for each team.
A welcome addition to the supporter’s gear available, Netball is the first sport in New Zealand to have Franchise-specific face paint packs available for teams’ supporters.
Having been available nationally for three months through The Warehouse and Postie-Plus, ‘True Colours’ face paints retail for around $20 and have proven immensely popular.
Netball New Zealand Marketing Manager Jeanette Paine says the face paints add a vibrant and exciting dimension to the crowd support of New Zealand’s leading netball teams.
“ The fans seem to really enjoy creatively expressing their support,” she said.
‘True Colours’ face paints packs are available for each of the nine National Bank Cup Franchises, there is also a specific Vodafone Silver Ferns pack available and five packs in regional colours available for use in any sport.
The motto “Be bold, be brave, be outrageous – enjoy the game, have fun and don’t be afraid to express who you are” lies behind the ‘True Colours’ brand, and is key to the success that Norrie has achieved so far in this her first business venture.
