Webinar: Arm Designs with Marcela Bustamante

In this webinar, learn arm designs with Marcela Bustamante.


Design #1 

So the first one that I'm gonna do is very simple. I'm gonna use a stencil (from BAM Pixie Pack) and a split cake. So I loaded my sponge with green and I'm gonna add some green over there, darker from the top and fade it in, and same thing on the bottom.

Now I'm gonna load my Blazin Brush 3/4" Angle brush with the blue right here. I'm gonna mark with dots just a little bit so I know where I should stop. I'm gonna start at the top. I'm still gonna bring the colors a little bit in with a wiggly movement.

The body's gonna be light blue and the wings will be dark blue then I'm gonna put fine glitter (Baby Blue) from VIVID Glitter on while it’s wet. This is a beautiful Frozen Elsa-colored blue.

I'm gonna load my Flora brush with a wax-based white. The consistency needs to be very, very creamy and rich. I'm making flowers with this; one on the top and one on the bottom so that I have a nice flow.

I'm gonna start doing some line work with a Round #4 Blazin Brush with the same white that I used for the flowers. And if you want, you can outline some of the parts but not everything, just a little bit.

I’m gonna apply chapstick to put chunky glitter on. I'm gonna use this VIVID Glitter Wild Bloom. I chose this because it has yellow and blue and I'm applying this next to the blue.

So we have the first very simple design, the fairy with the rainbow. If you have a bigger arm, you can make this longer and maybe add a few more flowers.


Design #2

I’m using this Batman stencil from Sweet. I'm gonna use this cake that’s from the Happy Pixie Fusion palette. I'm gonna load the sponge. I'm gonna spray a little bit on the sponge and a little bit on the cake.

So you can do a triangle shape and then I'm gonna use a dauber with black, load it up. You don't want that dauber to be too wet. I’m gonna apply the stencil with this.

We can add some texture to this one with a stencil (from GraffitiEyes Ultimate Stencil Kit) because it's kind of plain so we're gonna use the white with a different dauber.

With the #5 Round Brush, I'm gonna make a tribal design. I’m making double lines and I connect them with a "u", and then I can make a circle. Always try to make thick to thin lines. Always follow the flow.

You can add some dots in white, they’ll be in different sizes to emphasize the flow. You can add some colors in the negative space, which I think green will be nice.


Design #3

I have this cool stencil from BAM (1312) and another one from VIVID Glitter called Vortex. So we're gonna combine those. I'm gonna spray this sponge. This is a combination of the Leanne's palette and I'm gonna keep the dark outside then adding that Vortex stencil around the skull stencil, leaving those spaces and creating that movement.

So I'm gonna start adding lines to frame the design. And of course you can add the glitter or you can add this liquid one, framing this further and emphasizing the dripping.
