Ok, first disclaimers biases and so on:

I have only met Lilly once, we're not like close personal friends, she made a WONDERFUL first impression and love her. I think she is an amazing teacher and artist. I think she has a joyful spirit. I purchased her 3d painted jewelry book after taking her class, and think it is wonderful.

I Dislike E books- as I am book publisher- but it is the way it is.
I have never been a fan of sugar masks- no reason just didn't get excited by them.
I purchased this E book, it was not a gift. Ok.... disclaimers out of the way:

I bought this book for two reasons- 1, to support someone whose work I believe in. 2, I am not a fan of sugar skulls, but believe in being well-rounded.

Well, I am a convert. There were so many designs in this book that got me jazzed up, I am really excited about playing more with this style.

One of the thing I love about Lilly is, rather than telling you "THE WAY" she shows you many options and lets you find what works best for you. If you are new to face painting, she details products, brushes, application methods, how to get a good foundation, using adhesives and much much much more.

If you've been doing this a while, you will STILL learn some tricks and ideas that will make you smile in terms of "the basics."

In terms of sugar skulls, YES there are step by steps. Yes there are tons of examples. Yes there are lots of how to's. But to me there is something more important and useful....

In this book, Lilly goes in to the concepts or ideas ("Theory" if you prefer) of how to design and lay out your OWN ideas. So, in other words, this isn't JUST a cookie cutter "do this this way get this outcome" book.... it is a book that will inspire and fire your OWN creativity and give you not only greater variety, but outcomes that will be uniquely yours right off the bat.

So... Considering the work that goes into the set-up and layout of a book like this- I think it is well worth the money- though when the printed version comes out I'll buy that too as I prefer print.

No hacks. I just believe in telling about a find if I find it. Wink

Thanks, LL. That helps!

Lily, I agree with all the wonderful things LL said about you! (You helped me between classes, AFTER your class, with the kindest attitude & tons of advice the lst year Vegas had their convention.)

Your Pink book sits on my shelf, and is referred to regularly). I need to go cash checks to be able to order & get ready for Sugar Skull season!

Thanks for putting this together!

The printed version comes out in about 3 weeks.  Here is a copy of the cover and a photo of one of the step by step designs.  

There is a sampling of a few of the images (over 250 in the book!)  at my website.

I am so excited. The printed book is out, and ILLUSION MAGAZINE is selling it! Well, so are a bunch of other great suppliers, but it is the first time my name has been said in the same sentence with Illusion, which is VERY good for my ego!

I have the hard copy & am loving it...well, I HAD the hard copy until this morning...we had a girls' night...and my face-painting daughters borrowed it...I guess I will have to study it at their house. (Fortunately I've already been through it twice).
