Video Tutorial: Floral Graffiti Leg Design


    Thanks to warm summer weather, face painters have opportunities not just to paint faces, but also arms and legs. Be prepared by having graffiti word or name options ready for your event guests. (Special tip: adding liquid bling, gems, and glitter will make your designs even more of a visual wow for guests!)
