    Freehand Glitter Tattoo - Sun Design

    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!
