Baby Tiger Design by Marina Krmek

We have lots of tiger designs but I wanted to show you my favorite one.

Products used

petal sponge

global white

global black

DFX metalic orange

DFX yellow

flora brush

loew cornell No. 2 and No. 4 round brush


Step 1

For eyes, I'm always using a petal sponge because it fits perfectly on eyelid. Load your sponge with white and be careful that is not to wet. Tap it on the eyelids and under eyes.

Step 2

Using apetal sponge and home made split cake (mine is DFX metallic orange and yellow), paint the basic shape for a baby tiger, watching that the darker color is always outside.

Step 3

With a Flora 12 brush and global white, paint ears and create the base for the nose. At this point, while the paint is still wet, add some glitter.

Step 4

Outline your eyes with black and a no. 2 round brush. Then create that cute baby tiger nose and add a bit of pink to his nostrils. You're almost done!

Step 5

For the stripes, I love the no. 4 round brush the most. Mine is a Loew Cornell brush. Always make sure that stripes on the forehead are pointing to a center of your nose. Line the whole design making short lines and creating a fury effect. And we are done!

Thank you for reading, and I hope you like this one!
