For this swirly design I used Kryolan Bach Blue for the swirls, some pink dots, purple Liquid Bling, and old stock Wolfe White. The base is Kryolan Interferenz Bach Blue and Strauss Wine. This is very quick as it is all free form… no set pattern to follow or outlining.
This full face design of penguins was designed to match the seasonal vest I was wearing – it has applique penguins on the pockets so I copied them. The background was a blended base of Fantasy Worldwide’s pearl blue and purple… I think they call their pearl colours “special”. It is really a wonderful to wear – it is a water based cream make-up and very light. Honestly, I forgot I was wearing it.
Holly… very traditional. I do a lot of holly designs on myself when I am working – simple to do, seasonal, and can be changed up by changing a few details. Very popular with the older girls and adults. This was done quite a few years back so I don’t remember what brands were used but it doesn’t matter… just don’t forget the glitter.
Baubles… one of my favourites.
This one I did using Fardel liquids… the gold used for the lips and ribbons is so soft and shimmery. (Fardel is a brand made in Belgium and is pretty hard to find in North America. I painted this back in 2005 or 2006… I no longer have a supplier.) I also did all the balls freehand which now many people would use daubers for, but I still do them freehand as I find it quicker.
