I'll use the mop for the base on a princess crown. I'll only lay down 1/2 the paint so you have 1/2 circles above the brow. I'll also use mops to make necklaces or tiaras(smaller ones for the chain & larger ones for the pendants).

Sure Metina!
It's on a practice head, so not so great Very Happy

Double load a mop & gently press circles across the forehead above the brow line. I like to put 2 circles on top of each other for the center.


Then do tear drops, swirls, etc around the circles.
(again, be forgiving this is on a stinky practice head Very Happy )


After this, you can bling it out w/ glitter, use a darker color around the edge, etc.

This is the necklace. Imagine it's just below the neck on the chest.
I double loaded the mop w/ red & yellow. Then I ran the red edge through black & the yellow edge through white(high lighting & low lighting). Press the mop on & do a slight twist so the dark stays on the bottom & the light stays on the top. I used a smaller mop for the chain & a larger mop for the pendant. You could even use a smaller mop on the outer edge for a smaller to larger effect.
