STEP ONE | FLOWER STEM
Using a script liner loaded with blue paint, create long swirling strokes around the edges of the face, cheeks and forehead.
To create an extra detail, you may dip the tip of the script liner is white paint, very lightly, to create a gradient between colours.
STEP TWO | PREPARE THE BRUSH
Double load a round brush by first loading it with white paint, then dipping the tip in red paint. Make sure not to mix the colours too much, just dip the brush in the red paint.
STEP THREE | PETAL TECHNIQUE
To create the petals, use the loaded brush and lightly place it, red tip first, onto the face. Once the red tip has made contact, move the brush to a more horizontal position with the face, to create contact between the face and the white paint. Then, lift the brush without dragging it ovcreating a stroke. This will create a beautiful petal because of the double loading of the brush.
STEP FOUR | FLOWERS
To create a flower, creating multiple petals in circular share, ensuring the red tip of the brush remains at the centre. This will create beautiful flower designs, and this can be repeated multiple times along the stem that was created before.
STEP FIVE | PETALS
On smaller stems and thinner parts of the base line, towards the edges of the design, individual petals can be added to create a more interesting and colourful design. Ensure the red tip of these petals remains towards the centre of the design.
STEP SIX | LIPS
To create a more finished design, mix white and red paint to make a lovely pink colour, and use a chisel brush to apply this to the lips.
STEP SEVEN | FINAL TOUCHES
Using Derivan Face and Body Kindy Glitz, create small groups of three or four dots throughout the design, specifically in empty areas and around the eyes. This will create a beautiful detail that finishes the design perfectly. The design in the video uses silver Kindy Glitz, though the Fairy Princess starter pack includes purple and aqua kindy glitz that you can use instead.
