green fantasy sponges and kid sized?

Post by aprilmoonflower on Tue Aug 19, 2014 5:57 pm

I can't remember where I got the round green fantasy sponges, but I need more. For some reason I think only one person sold them but can't remember who? Can someone let me know?

Also what do you use for smaller faces? Is there someway to get round sponges that are about 1/2 the size of the regular ones? Or is the solution those dauber (Sp) sponges? I tried to make my own with an exacto knife and well my results are less than stellar..

Metina has the green ones here in the Forum Shop

Also, the small butterfly sponges are great for small faces but Metina doesn't have those.

I use an electric carving knife to cut my sponges.

I get my green FWW sponges from the face paint forum shop. Get the pack of 10 and you save $1 Very Happy

For small faces it's all just sponge control for me, but what you could do is instead of cutting the sponge in half you could make one side a little smaller.

Example:


just ignore the math lol. But you see what i mean, you'll end up with a smaller half moon sponge if you really wanted one.

For cutting, i just use really sharp scissors and cut em with one cut.

I don't just dauber sponges anymore, because you have to have a lot of them in several different sizes. Uggg... what a space waster. Also i have to fish for the certain size i need and then i can only use it once before needing to clean it? Screw that noise! Razz

Simple solution - I made a stencil lol. I made one and it has 3 sizes on it and is cut to be the same size as my BAM stencils. I only need one of them and, it's flat and saves space, easy to clean and I can reuse it. I just use quarter cut of half moon sponges to apply it like with my other stencils. Works like a charm Very Happy

"Ignore the math" ...  cheers 
Holy Mackerel, Forest, you had me frightened there for a second! I KNOW you are thorough and a fount of information, but the sponge algebra was going to really scare me! clown

Dear JJJJJ:
Sponge Algebra is easy...
If a Green Fantasy World Wide Sponge leaves Geneva (point 's') at 8:14am GMT travelling 42.3km/hour, and a Snazaroo red sponge leaves Wapakineta, Ohio (point 'd') at 7:43pm EST travelling 170mph,
what colour socks are you wearing?

See...
easy!

You are welcome.
I am here all week, folks.

The wicked pink sponges are small and so are the red snazaroo sponges.

Oh, Fessy, you have me laughing as always! But the spongewrench in this equation is that my socks are located at two indeterminate coordinates along the rippling fabric of the space-time-sponge continuum so I cannot see what color they are. The last time I saw them, they were the color of your favorite Tag pearl, but now they are SMOOA* and so ...

After some careful calculations, I believe I have found the source of the said 'ripples' in the fabric of the space-time-sponge continuum.

Great work, Forest! And it appears that the socks are white, with red and blue stripes!

I'm an artist, not a mathematician. Sock colors may vary depending on my mood. (mood socks? Patent pending.)
