BAM Stencil Step-by-Step: Neck Corset with Eye Design

I thought I’d give it another try today with my BAM stencils for the Face Paint Forum’s monthly challenge, and here’s what I came up with: a lacy neck corset with an accompanying eye design.  It was still tricky painting in the mirror, but at least I got to wear my glasses for this one! 🙂

Here’s how I did it….

In hindsight if I did this again, I’d scrap the gray shading on the contours of the neck. That didn’t turn out how I had hoped.  But, it was really fun to bling it out with some liquid bling, Mehron glitter spray, and gems held on with eyelash adhesive!

Fun with BAM Stencil #1010: Palm Leaf!

Here’s A little step-by-step for you that uses the BAM stencil #1010, available in the BAM Complete Set.  I actually did this as an entry in the Face Paint Forum’s BAM stencil contest…you can check out the contest details here!  The thought here was to create a mask that looks like a tiger peeking through the jungle foliage. 

This was my first try entering one of their contests, and my first attempt at using this stencil.  I made it up as I went along, and always have such a hard time painting on myself, backwards in the mirror, with my glasses off. (I’m SO super blind).  But, I hope to come up with some better entries before the contest is up…you can enter up to 3 times!  🙂
