How do I use the Sparkling Faces Ultimate Face Painting Practice Guide?
Place the practice board on top of the design sheet that you would like to practice. Follow the step by step strokes to build beautiful designs.
For the plastic practice board and the paper sheets, get your brush wet, tap off any excess moisture, and then swipe the brush back and forth on your face paint cake to load the bristles with face paint. Apply the paint in smooth strokes and re-load your brush as needed. You can also sponge on colors or add liquid bling to your finished designs. To avoid dripping or beading, and to promote faster drying of the paint, make sure that your paint is thick and creamy, not wet and inky. When you are done practicing wash your practice board off with soap and water. Any remaining residue can be removed with a magic eraser and sunflower oil.
Milena uses a variety of round brushes, liners and angle brushes to create these designs.
