As before, Illusion Magazine had asked if I would do a step-by-step baby bump for one of their issues, and I decided that rather than the usual paint, I would do it in glitter tattoo. This was my 2nd attempt to give them a choice of designs.
I am now selling the new glitter tattoo glue bottles with screw-on fine lids and cosmetic glue that I prefer on my shop here, so I used them.
Di Smith of Frozen Photography had another pregnant friend who was very, so we met there to decorate the mum-to-be.
This time I started the glue design with a flat brush, for a different look. I use old brushes that I can throw away, as no matter which removers I try the glue seems to soak right up inside the brush bristles and never completely clean out of it afterwards:(
Anyway this was to be a spring baby, so a design of a gold heart emerging from new leaves on a bed of old autumnal leaves came to my mind.
After I had glued and glittered the leaves, I went back to add more glue but this time used the bottles and tip I sell to add fine twiggy details.
This I highlighted with gold metallic cosmetic powders before glittering.
A brush off and ….
