We had a great program last Saturday. Here are some photos of the awesome tattoos we made:
If you want to make your own, it's pretty easy. Here's how:
1. Stencils. We used adhesive contact paper to cut out shapes and stick on the skin to be painted in. The best stencils are made using an exact-o knife, so if you go that route - be very, very careful! Try to get a cutting mat surface to use because that makes it a lot easier. You could also tape pre-made paper stencils to your skin, but they are a little tougher to work with than the contact paper.
2. Eye shadow.
3. Liner Sealer (this one is about $10.00 on amazon, not including shipping). Sephora sells one by "Make up Forever" that is $22.00.
How you do it:
Scrape some eye shadow into a small container (even a soda bottle cap will work). Add 3 or 4 drops of liner sealer and mix with a paintbrush. Fill in your stencil using the paintbrush, or the little applicators that come with the eye shadow. Peel off your stencil. Voila! It's now a waterproof tattoo that should last a few days! Want a little more detail or a different explanation? Here's where I got the idea.
