Any tips for 1st belly painting, the request is a world map/globe

Post by Emmanuelle -GLITTER BUGS on Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:26 pm

On my first belly painting I am requested to paint a globe or world map, has anyone painted anything like that?
Any tips and recommandations?
I told her it should take about two hours..I do not know if I am realistic... but I have to make it work in that time frame...
I am excited and I don't want ot free style I want to be prepared.
Thank you ,

Have you tried Google images 'bellypaint earth'?
There are a lot of examples there.

I would make some stenclaes of the different continents (sp?) and go from there---
I am having spelling issues! Sorry!

I did this world belly freehand and it took about 2 hours. I looked at maps and satellite images to get and idea of how to paint it.

It will be quicker if you make a stencil, draw the land on stick paper, stick to the belly paint the water, take the sticker of and paint the green and finish.

I'm sure you're done already, but in my opinion, it's art...it doesn't need to be perfect Smile

This mom chose the quote, and I came up with the design.
