To become a princess is a dream for many girls, especially an ice princess like Elsa from Disney´s "Frozen ". This princess crown is perfect to do on the job since it can be done very quickly with onestroke colours. Add some glitter and gems for a perfect birthday girl princess.
Step 1: Crown center.
Make the princess crowns center using a 3/4" angled brush and a blue onestroke. I used a onestroke from TAG called "Bluebird". Make sure that you have the darkest colour on the outside and the brighter on the inside. Make a direction mark on the top so you got it in the middle.
Step 2: Rest of the crowns base.
Do the rest of the crowns base with the same brush and colour. Do the crown over the eyebrows, and make e little loop towards the outer corners of the eyes. The ends close to the cheeks should be small. Again, use the darkest colour on the outside.
Step 3: Stencils and eyelids.
Add some light shimmering purple on the eyelids. (Just as Elsa from "Frozen" got.) I used TAG Pearl Lilac and the pointy edge of a petal shaped sponge. Use the other side of the sponge and some "Ziva Blue" from FAB/Superstar to blend the lower parts of the crown. Take a snowflake stencil and use a waxy white paint and a finger sponge. Make a big snowflake in the center of the crown and two smaller ones for the sides. I used BAM 1036 stencil and DFX White. Add some iridescent glitter for a more sparkly effect.
Step 4: Teardrops, swirls, dots and stars.
Now it´s time to make it look like a crown! Use a #4 round brush and really load it with waxy white paint. Make the teardrops on each side of the crowns center. Make a swirl on each side and some teardrops towards the outer corners of the eyes. Paint a thin-thick-thin line over the eyelids close to the brows. Do some reversed teardrops between the eyes. Use a #2 round brush to do the dots and stars. I like to make dots in a row just under the eyes, and make the dots smaller the closer it gets to the center.
Now the design can be done if you are on the job. But if you got some more time or if it is a birthday girl you have to add some glitter and gems for a super sparkly princess look. ;-)
Step 5: Glitter, gems and lips.
Paint the lips with some pink paint, like Global Magenta. Add some gloss and large cut fairy dust glitter to the lips. Take your silver liquid bling and decorate the design along the teardrops and swirls. Add some small gemstones on the smaller snowflakes and add a gemcluster in the center if you got one, or add a small gemstone in the center of the big snowflake. If you don´t have any gemstones you can do some dots with the liquid bling.
And now your Ice Princess is sparkly and ready for adventures!
Hope you liked it, happy painting!
