Glitter Tattoo baby Bump PreNatal Art Spring Leaves

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.

I wanted to do a gothic/ baroque type of pattern, so to save time had cut my own stencil which I sponged face paint through as a quick start. I then went over the paint in glue, and added many more freehand dots and details in the glue.

Several coats of glitter later and we had a sparkly intricate work of art that could last several days, until removed with baby oil or gentle rubbing in a bath.
