Face and body paint for an Anniversary Party we attended at a Night Club
I love to face paint.... I was going to a VooDoo party at a night club. What a perfect time to create what I thought a human VooDoo doll would look like. If you have any questions let me know.
The products I used are as follows:
Wolfe Brothers Paint
Ben Nye Paint
Mehron silver powder/paint
Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer

    Get a larger brush, not huge. This is a brush I bought that is actually used for acrylic nails. It works great around the eye area because it is soft, and will not pull the area around your eyes.

    Make two black circles, I chose to do mine two different sizes, well, just because I wanted to. Allow it to dry as I didn't and it will separate or crease.

    Ok, this is the hard thing. You can either blend out the black or use a light grey face paint to kind of create shadows or almost a bruising. This is imperative for the stitches to show up in the next step.

    Now, add black dots where the stitches are. Add wholes and thread for the button wholes. Spray with sealing spray or powder with setting powder.
    The heart on my chest was done the same way. Only I used Mehron silver powder/paint to create needles into the heart. Set this also.
    Next, the hair.... Tease the crap out of your hair and spray it. Once it has dried, Spray with the white spray. Be forewarned, It will take several washings to get the spray out!!!
