4 color rainbow sample - you could slice off a thin layer of each color and put them next to each other, then swipe it and paint on your arm to see if you like it.

or, even easier, using a brush, paint 4 colors next to each other on a sponge, then swipe the sponge on your arm.

All right, I finished these awhile ago, but this is what I ended up with when I cut up the new cakes I bought from the above photo (a previously purchased rainbow one-stroke is also thrown in there) and I have about 2 50g cakes of random colors left so I can still create more.



Interesting process... took me way too long... but I wanted them to look good.  I had to make the pink in my "Havana Sunset" rip-off as I had run out of pink and boy was it was messy, lol... the ones I created I don't find to be any worse than the factory TAG cakes (as you can see in the Snowflake and Carnival cakes).

What a great visual and then you brought it to life!  

I have gone down the slice and dice road and found that, to me, it ends up being a royal pain in the butt.  It took way too much time and effort and I realized I would rather use my time and effort NOT slicing and dicing.  So much easier on my brain to just buy a pre-made cake.  

Granted, I work just about every weekend at a dino show, so I have to constantly keep up with my inventory.  It is a matter of convenience for my business. 

And I have said this on other threads here on the forum in the past;  you will probably one day discover that after spending waaaaaay too much money on all the colors that you fawn over and MUST have - in the end, so many of them go unused and end up getting Frankensteined into entirely different cakes anyway.  Less IS better.  Trust me - you may not see that now, but someday you will my grasshoppers.

Lol Miss Ronnie. I totally get how less is better. What you see above is really all I have other than the white and black 90g, black starblend, and a 12 color essential palette, silver, gold, and blue metallic 10gs when it comes to paint. I have an issue with colors (color blind/stupid) so I'm trying to keep what I have to the basics for the most part, haha. But I would really like to have some more pearl/metallic cakes.

Wow this is awesome! How did you digitally split them?? I'm such a visual person and this technique would work amazing for me.

I used photoshop.  So I basically created an image using guides so each color/cake was locked into a specific size in the program.  Then I figured out what aspect ratio for cutting would work and based on the size of the overall image, most of the cuts to make one-stroke cakes were at a width of 15 or 20 pixels (15 being a one-stroke cake with 4 colors, and 20 being a cake with 3 colors).  Then I just moved that slice of the cake to the location I wanted to create that one-stroke.  And I continued on from there and realize this probably doesn't make any sense Razz

Here's a screenshot of what I started working with in photoshop w/ grids (you may need to view the the image if the forums isn't displaying the full image)

All i keep saying is wow. Lol. This is amazing. Now I wish I had photoshop. Thanks so much for all this info. I'm definitely going to play around with the color and see if it will work for me, and keep this thread handy for back up. Thanks again!!

No problem! I just did this so that I could see if I had enough paint ordered to ensure I could make what I wanted as I had never cut up a thing of face paint before and I had also never saw or held in my hand a container of TAG face paint in 30 or 50g cakes before.

math whiz strikes again Smile  so, old school, you could do this with pieces of colored paper, if you knew the dimensions of the colors in the cakes..which i do not.  littlemonsters?

I didn't know either... I had to do a search on the internet to find a picture of a 30g and a 50g cake next to each other so I could see their relative sizes. At that point it didn't really matter what their exact demensions were (I can measure mine when I get home if you really want to know)

I'd be interested in knowing the size of yours and the size of the slices for the 1 strokes you made so I can figure out how much to buy of each color. If you dont mind. SmileSmile

I did one party the other week and I only got to use the tiger ones and the blue/light blue split. I have been contacted to do THREE parties this Saturday but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
