I had the pleasure of painting “Father Frost” and “Mother Frost” on their way to a Halloween costume party last night!
|Working on Mother Frost|
For “Mother Frost” I used a mix of the regular Aquacolor paints (white & blues), and interferenz paints. I used a little snowflake stencil which was pretty slick, and had fun adding details with a bottle of Mehron white Detailz paint and some Amerikan Body Art Liquid Bling in silver. She brought her own sparkly blue eyelashes which were very cool, and also put on some pretty blue & aqua eyeshadow and lips!
For “Father Frost” I first covered his face and head in a base coat of Interferenz Silver mixed with a little bit of Aquacolor white, which gave him that frosty, pale look with some shimmer. Then I used more interferenz blues around his eyes to add some drama with the frosty cracks and icicles around his eyes. Aquacolor white made a nice snowflake on his cheek, but I added some blue around it to make it really pop! The blue sparkly dots done with Amerikan Body Art Liquid Bling really added a lot when the light hit it as well! I also brushed a little interferenz blue in his beard too which worked well. I’m kicking myself because I forgot to spritz his beard with a little Glitter Spray! But, it all came out looking pretty cool! (pardon the pun!)
