Jewel Ornament Body Art by Natalia Kirillova

With body paint you can draw not only funny masks of cats, tigers and dogs, but also such beautiful drawings as precious gems and jewels. Only these drawings require more detail and your patience. But they look just fabulous!


Step 1

With a fine brush and white face paint, mark the diamond outline. Then paint facets in another color (I chose purple) to make it easier for you to understand the lines.


Step 2

The second step is to paint the some of the angles purple, as shown in the photo. We leave the middle blank. Be sure to follow the picture exactly, so your gem will look like real. It's also a great idea to use a reference picture, and practice!


Step 3

Now it's time for the light triangles. Use less water so that the paint does not spread over the pattern and the lines are sharp.


Step 4

I used the TAG Split Cake "Freshness"  to fill in the color of our picture. All the colors of this cake are perfect for our diamond - purple, turquoise, white and neon green. Look closely and see that in purple I added a little turquoise highlights to make everything look more realistic - color transitions, shadows, and glare.


Step 5

Now it's time for black face paint. Work only with the tip of the brush so you can see what you're doing. On the sides of the diamond, add a couple of precious stones, create a beautiful decoration on hand. At this stage, use Cameleon Angle Brush and Split Cake "Freshness."


Step 6

Decoration starts to flicker and have depth if you add white highlights that look like small stars. Then, begin to draw lace patterns in black color.


Step 7

Patterns can be any, use your imagination, just remember to consider the main point - symmetry so your decoration will be really chic! The last step is to add highlights and black curls, giving the volume of all the embellishment.

I hope you enjoyed this look! I will be glad to see your designs!

My name is Natalia, I live and work in Russia, the city of Yaroslavl. I do face painting for 7 years. One of my favorite destinations - belly painting, (so great to see how kids who have recently been in the tummy are already beginning to walk, talk and learn to draw) in my collection of 40 drawings for pregnant women. I've won a lot of face painting contests and now I want to teach you how to create beautiful drawings on faces. The most beautiful thing when you show your child the finished picture to see his shining smile
