The paint washes off easily with soap. Yay! Something I didn't… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

The paint washes off easily with soap. Yay!

Something I didn't mention on the first face painting post - I must remember not to smile bigger than a Mona Lisa smile, or I look demonic. Demonic Lilith.... hmmmmm. Appropriate for the original, but not so much for the Trinity Blood version. I will likely forget anyway.

My file WAS restored. Oh, happy day! It's been sent off to the Doc. Prep. Unit and is out of my hands.

Puff paint.... is going to be trouble. I think I want a wider bead (but only on parts) than I am getting... and keeping an even bead may well be beyond me. *sigh*. But, oh, would it ever be sweet for those armbands I thought would be silver and white ribbon (but couldn't find any).


And I haven't even touched the latex.

have you tried cutting the tip down a bit for a wider bead yet? As for an even bead...yeah...I only sometimes have success with that...>_< Stupid paints

That seems the most likely solution, but I need to do finer lines AFTER the thicker ones.

buy two things of paint, duh. fabric paint is $2 a tube. and you'll be using at least three most likely.

Three for just that little cresent on her head (assuming I am not doing the arm bands)?

Do you mean couching? Where you use regular thread to sew down wire on the top of the fabric? I am not sure that's what you mean, because that's not wire I see in the cresent.

However, I do have millinary wire in it, to help hold the shape I want, but I cheated and sewed it inbetween layers, like I would corset bones.

Embroidered is my first guess. Or *shudder* worked metal. (SO not going there!) But I am not going to spend the time to embroider all that, so puff paint it is!

I have to blow it up to near-pixelation to see much of any detail, yes.
