Glitter tattoos are always a big hit especially with the older crowd.  I personally like to do them by hand rather than using a stencil to give it an artistic touch. When you use a brush to do glitter tattoos, you will want to make sure to use a brush that you don’t mind getting glue on, and even may only use for a short while as the glue dries and gets stuck in the brushes. Some people even use disposable brushes one for each gig.

Supplies:

Yellow glitter
Orange glitter
Red glitter

Light green face paint
Round #2 brush
Powder brush

Glitter glue

Rubbing alcohol
Water
Wash cloth

Application:

1.  Pour a small amount of glitter glue into a container. I found the lid to my paints quite handy! Next, add a small amount of face paint to the glue. This will help you to see where you have painted as it dries.

2. Next, using the #2 brush, draw a spiral where you want to start your design.

3. Add sun rays to the spiral, spacing out the rays and carefully placing so they align in a pleasing manner.

4. Continue to add sun rays and fill the circle. Add dots inside the design as well to fill the space.

6. Cover it up in glitter! I like to start in the middle and work my way out. You can add the glitter using either the poo-fable bottles, or you can use your finger to dab on.  I used yellow in the middle, then orange and then red out the outside. Make sure to cover all the glue with glitter.

7. Finally sweep the glitter away using a powder brush. Wipe away any stray glitter using wash cloth. So pretty!
