You May Call Me Splitenstein! Muaha

Post by Beloved15 on Thu Oct 02, 2014 10:48 pm

Just wanted to show my latest obsession. I've been splitting all my tag cakes mainly for one stroke painting and a few for base blends.

Thank you! I have to give design classes from college and an exacto blade the credit for the cutting. I didn't expect this, but some of those colors were so frustrating! Many of the darker colors would stick to the side and bottom of my containers so that they became a huge mess. I've probably washed my hands thirty times tonight.

Loving that green/light blue/dark blue combo- I just made one myself!

Are you concerned at all about the round containers impeding loading your sponge? Or are you used to working out of circular rainbow cakes?

Unfortunately, I don't have photos of any of my designs yet. I will upload them to this thread as I use the cakes though.

And I am a bit worried about loading my sponge. But I'm going to start practicing that more to hopefully get quick with it. I made it mostly for two-tone one stroke and maybe loading two colors on a sponge. I will have to see.

I need more sponges because I only have 8 halves and I'm starting to get paranoid about cleanliness with my kit. Since I can rince my brush with alcohol after each child I feel more inclined to use brushes instead of sponges. At least until I can build up my sponge stash.

Dear Beloved15:
While I am addicted to FWW sponges, and Already Wicked sponges, I buy sponges from my local Canadian Tire store. I cut them into wedges with my electric carving knife. You can purchase the big "peanut-shaped" car wash sponges and cut them into wedges. Line them up with your face paint base blender cakes to measure them to cut them.
I understand that there are a chain of stores in the US (Joanne's?) that sell foam cushions for pillows. Those cushions are supposedly great for face painting sponges. I use the car wash sponges in all kinds of sizes. I do an 18 day festival in Canada with a team of face painters, and we use one sponge per child. We use between 200-700 sponges per day. I wash them on the sanitizing cycle in my washing machine and dry them on high heat in a large lingerie bag. I have 1,500 sponges. I could not have afforded to purchase all those sponges if I had used only FWW.

Happy Painting!

Here are the cakes sponged on my arms. Sorry for the terrible application. I just cut a bunch of sponges from some upholstery foam and they are shaped a bit uneven. The colors also look better than what the photo shows.

Haha, I wonder if they look so bright because I'm so pale. Thank you!

I'd love to see a picture of the "peanut-shaped" car wash sponge that you cut into wedges. I was looking it up and there are so many variations. Thanks!
