Tutorial: Hearts & Rainbows
Here is a simple and fast design that will give you that wow factor, with minimal effort. Read on below to see how to accomplish this design. Using a practice head or mask can really help in learning the 3D surface of a face. Here are some practice masks that are fun and easy to use: Practice Masks
paper towels or cloth
(optional) Fine Mist Spray bottle with water
(optional) Baby wipes
Colors used in this picture:
1. Using the 1 inch flat brush and the rainbow cake, add two swoops along side the face. Start at the middle of the forehead, bring down and twist to a point. Add another swoop by curving around and up like a “C”.
2. Using the medium round brush and the red face paint, add a heart between the two rainbows.
3. Using the white paint and the medium round brush, add some swirls, twirls, dots and teardrops. Outline each side of the rainbow, Either close off the ends by bringing the ends to a point, or fill in with extra teardrops. Add different size of teardrops, and swirls to make it interesting. Add a series of small teardrops outlining one side of the heart. Dont’ forget to add a few dots and swirls to the inside of the heart as well.
This design wouldn’t be complete without glitter. I don’t normally take a photo with glitter because it doesn’t capture how wonderful it looks, and it hides the design. However in person it takes it to another level.
Easily add glitter by using a spray bottle with water, and spritzing the design lightly at least 12 inches away. Use a poof-able cosmetic grade glitter to add evenly all around. Use different colors to really create an effect.
