Just in time for your ugly Christmas sweater paintings, I’ve put together a super quick video to show you how to create a cable knit sweater texture! It looks super detailed, but really it’s just a matter of finding the right sized tools to make the size knit you want, and then repeating a pattern of short strokes and “stamps” with a petal brush. Enjoy!!
We are SUPER excited to show you our all new “Bling-to-Go” Do-it-Yourself Body Bling Kits!! They are the perfect way to celebrate virtually with your friends, or bling yourself out for a socially distant night on the town! Each kit includes a storage tin, complete instructions, skin-safe Pros-Aide body glue, and coordinating cosmetic glitter gel! Simply peel your bling off at the end of the day and store it in your tin to use again!
We have a variety of different options as far as designs go, from unicorn horns to mermaid tails and everything in between! However, every kit includes full color instructions, a 1ml vial of body glue with applicator, a 1ml container of Pixie Paint glitter gel, and your hand made bling piece of choice, all neatly packaged in a little tin for storage!
Our kits come complete with step by step instructions to get you started, and you can wear your bling cluster again and again! Loving the bling more than you thought you would? No worries…we have everything you need if you decide you’d like refills of your glitter gel and adhesive in the Glitter Glamper Shop!
Our handmade bling is even better when one of our talented “Glampette” artists brings it to your event and applies it along with their skilled makeup embellishments, and we can’t WAIT to get back out there and “Bring the Bing” to your celebrations! (Click here learn more about all of our in-person glittery offerings!) In the meantime, we hope that these Bling-to-go kits will help fill that sparkly void!
With all the camping on our brains lately, I was reminded of a couple summers ago when we did a road trip to Yellowstone, and saw a grizzly bear! I got a few good photos with my zoom lens! So, I thought I’d put together a fun grizzly bear design. Check out the video below or view it here on YouTube!
Less gigs and more time in my studio means I’ve had a chance to work on NEW designs for the Glitter Glamper, and creating some custom stencils to go along with my new fairy wing and tutu bling. After sharing my new designs, I have had requests for my custom stencils, and this week was able to get them to a point where I can now offer them to YOU as well, in the shop! I’m super excited to announce that we now have our brand new ballerina and fairy bling stencils ready to ship!
Essentially these stencils are designed with spaces intentionally left blank, allowing you to insert your own painted tutus (one strokes make them fast and gorgeous!), or stick on your own tutu bling clusters! They are designed to be complemented with one stroke swooshes, swirls, teardrops, and of course festival glitter!! This is something I’ve been personally creating for the 2020 Glitter Glamper booth at the MN State Fair but I wanted to share the idea with my fellow artists who create bling! They are super cute, made with pieces of lace and trim. I may sell these down the road, but for now they are only available at the Glitter Glamper booth.
Now you could theoretically use both a set of wings and a 3D tutu bling on one of these fairy designs! I’m going to offer either a fairy with 3D wings and a painted tutu, or a Ballerina with a 3D tutu, to separate my offerings and have one 3D piece per design. Here’s how I do the painted tutus…..
These short kabuki brushes are AWESOME for stencils! Once I tried them the first time, that’s all I use now.
Here are the stencils I have available now in the shop!!
Tutu Fairy Pair Stencil
This stencil gives you a lot of bang for your buck, with two fairies on one stencil. Spaces were intentionally left blank, allowing you to paint in a tutu with one strokes, or stick on a 3D tutu cluster!
Ballerina 1 Stencil
This stencil is sized just right for the side of the face, and can be reversed as needed to flow around the eye!
Ballerina 2 Stencil
This stencil is also sized just right for the side of the face, and can be reversed as needed to flow around either eye!
Ballerina Torso Pair Stencil
This stencil includes TWO torsos on one stencil! They are sized a little larger than the full body ballerinas, and are perfect to go on the forehead or cheek! Add your tutu either with a one stroke or a 3D tutu cluster!
Please feel free to comment or ask questions here, and if you order these, we’d LOVE to see what you do with them! Follow us on Facebook, post your designs and tag us @paintertainmentdotcom!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy painting!
Tonight I finally had a chance to try out a few of the fun new products that were recently added to Paintertainment’s online shop! I took photos along the way so that I could share a little rainbow butterfly how-to for you!
1) Wet the brush and/or paint. Swipe the Snazaroo butterfly fan brush across the Paradise Rainbow Cake to load it with a rainbow of colors! (You’ll swipe in the other direction, loading the other side of the brush, when you do the butterfly’s right wing in step 3)
2) Lay the butterfly fan brush against the skin, making sure that all colors make contact.
3) Swipe to the right as you lift the brush up for the left wing! Repeat using the other side of the brush for the right wing.
I hesitate to even post these just because full faces still totally creep me out!! That’s probably a bad trait for a face painter, eh? 😉 Well, I thought I’d try my hand at some full face animals on myself. So here they are:
|Leopard – This was my first try at using a “rake brush,” and a neat animal print stencil I just bought online. Never thought I’d use a stencil but they are pretty slick for things like prints!|
|My tiger face, before I had the rake brush which makes such great fur…|
I am pleased to announce that I now have a selection of acrylic gems and adhesive available in the shop! These gems can really add a lot of sparkle, especially to your princess designs. These are not the cheap peel-n-stick gems that fall off right away. They have a smooth, shiny back, so you can properly attach them safely to the skin with Kryolan eyelash adhesive. They stay on well and remove easily when you’re ready!
I have chosen a variety of different shapes and sizes to offer at my site! Below are some image of what I have currently, including hearts, ovals, circles, squares, stars, and variety packs. Don’t see a shape or size that you like to use? Please let me know! I’m looking for more ideas as far as what other shapes to carry. I have included photographs with a penny shown so that you can easily visualize the size of each gem.
We also have these large 1 pound bags below for just $16.00. These packages do not list a quantity, so I can’t tell you exactly how many are in there, but it’s a BIG bag that is sure to last you a very, very long time! They are available in an assortment of different large shapes, as well as a bag of various round gems!
I am soooo excited to start using these gems in my designs and start offering up special princess party packages. These gems will be the highlight of my princess and crown designs!
