Face Painting: The Butterfly
Mary is painting a butterfly on ________ face.
Hi! Welcome! My name is Mary Morris. I am with All Star Entertainment in Houston, Texas, and this is my lovely model Zoe, and today we are going to do a butterfly.Today on the butterfly we are going to use one of these split cakes. I am going to swipe my brush across these colors here on this side of it; a three-quarter inch wide brush, a thinner brush for the detail and the outlining.Swipe across the pink, yellow, and blue part of the cake, and we are going to come up, like so, and make a shape of a wing. I am going to come down, and back around, like so. I put a little color right there and get some more paint on there.Now, I am going to match up my colors. I am going to match that blue to this blue. Turn my brush, so that the blue is in the middle, and then fill in with a little color right there, like so.Now, we are going to do the other side with the yellow on top. I would call this step one, just applying the base color. If you start using these split cakes, you are going to love them.Okay. I am going to take my small round brush and wet it, and pick up some black. Take our brush and we can drag in a little bit, like so. I am just sort of rounding it right here between those little swipe marks.Now, we are going to put the body on the butterfly. We will start with the little head. It's a little detail brush to give me the antennas. So I am going to use my detail paint and put some dots, just here, there, and everywhere, and they will really show up well on the black.Last, but not least, we have to make you sparkle. That little girl doesn't like her lips painted. I put a little glitter on there. This is our butterfly.
