This bat design is both for boys and girls. It is very quick and easy to do but still has a wow effect.
We sponge a pearl blue base on forehead, eyelids and sides of the eyes
With a chisel brush we paint a black round shape in the centre of the forehead and the two wings. With a round brush we paint the black “fingers” and fill in the triangle shapes in between with dark blue
With a round brush and white we paint two different size circles on the bat’s head to suggest a “crazy” look and two tiny horns. Then, we outline with a number 1 brush the horns and paint black in the centre of the eyes.
Now we paint two small white dots on each eye to make them more lively and two small fangs. With watery white and a round brush we highlight the top of head and wings.
As a final touch, if we have time, we paint some small dots and stars around to fill in the background and we can add some stars with a stencil too.
Painting lips with and adding glitter are always a plus!
