Belly Painting - practicing before the first one?

Post by Becky521 on Wed Apr 04, 2012 5:56 am

A friend of mine owns business as a Doula and midwife and suggested I offer belly painting because she loves what I've done on faces. I would LOVE to do that, but I would love to practice on something that no one else has to see before I do my first live baby bump. So, with no pregnant bellies in the household at the present time, what do you all suggest practicing on? I know some of you practice brush strokes on brown paper, I was also thinking of getting a light pink playground ball (smooth, not the bumpy kind - so it's round), but I wasn't sure if the paint would slide around on the plastic. I don't want to invest in an official "practice bump" if I'm not sure this is something I want to offer long-term. Suggestions?

Wax Paper is great for practicing out designs on. You can also keep it in plastic page protectors in a folder to reference when you go to paint the real design.
