Colorini is THE BOMB!

Post by Psalmbook on Sun Jul 15, 2012 6:30 am

Colorini is a temporary tattoo ink that is safe for the skin & lasts several days or can be removed w/ rubbing alcohol.

I bought Temptu last year in August, played w/ it a bit, but never liked it. It was never a product I felt could be used in real time on the job & put out quality work I was proud of (it now sits in my closet of rejected body paint shame.....)

This summer has been extremely hot. I love glitter tattoos, but often the boys reject the idea (even with mica, just because the word glitter is associated with it...). The boys see all the girls getting glitter & walk on by....

So I bit my lip & bought a Colorini set ($60)... ouch. My 1st impression was... Oh... These bottles are VERY small & I've been jipped again... But after watching a tutorial on YouTube I gave it a go....

.... This stuff is amazing! It has a very short learning curve (did I mention I never got the hang of Temptu). You can mix the colors to make new colors, & lighten it up w/ white. You can use it thicker for bolder colors & lines & thin it out w/ 91% rubbing alcohol for a wash or more watercolor look (70% rubbing alcohol makes it clumpy & messy so go w/ the 91%). You can freehand it or use your glitter tattoo stencils w/ a brush or sponge (I prefer sponge). It dries very fast, but you just dip into the alcohol& swirl in the paint to reactivate it. They say you get about 200 tattoos w/ each bottle & I believe it. I only used about a drop to 2 drops for each color, except the black... 3-4 I think. I mix it in a pallet.

I see tons of potential & now that I'm in love will probably go get the neons!

Pretty, It is been in my whish list for ever, the first video I saw the paint bleeded thru the stencil and took ages to dry, the 4th of July at my festival there where kids selling colorini tattoos for $2 dollars and they looked crispier than mine, now that I saw the video using a sponge I want to try, I only bought black, how long it last?

LOL!

I haven't tried it w/ a stencil, but I've heard it works better w/ a sponge (and you can wash the sponge in rubbing alcohol).

I've read it lasts 3-5 days, so I'm planning on taking a pic each day to see how well it lasts.

$2/tattoo? That seems cheap for this. I'm probably going to ask $5-$10 for stenciled tattoos & I think I can get $10-$15 for a freehand design....
