The monarch is beautiful. The girls always do want the neons it seems.

I was in love with using TAG Gelati for butterflies for a while, I liked it because it was really bright but didn't have any actual neon colours in it and I was trying to avoid neons. But, I have given up on that idea. So I do still love Gelati and use it often, but my new most favourite one is the TAG Tropical Breeze custom cake that Metina sells. I put the gold over the eyes and the teal towards the outside and it is STUNNING! As soon as I can convince one girl to try it instead of the regular neon rainbow, they all want it! The gold makes it look so opulent, it's an amazingly beautiful combination. I never get a chance to take pics unfortunately.

Sorry to necro an old thread but Fabtastic, you mentioned a TAG Tropical Breeze custom cake. I can't find this in the shop so I'm guessing I missed it (happens a lot, lol), and I was wondering if you could tell me what colors are in it in what order?

Thanks! Smile

HazyDaze, it's four colours - looks like gold, neon magenta, neon yellow and teal. It's too bad they don't show up in the shop marked "sold out"...

Here's a pic of a mask I did with it... not really a good representation because I accidentally blended some magenta in with the gold when I was doing the centre piece. This split cake is gorgeous for butterflies.

Seriously, I always think no one can suck at butterflies.............. but then I see some at events where I am not painting and realize yep some face painted butterflies are just ugly!

Keep at it -it will come to you.

I know this is an old thread but I really love seeing all the ways butterflies can differ. I don't know why I haven't shared any of mine before...

I think the line work could be similar but what make them different are the colors we use in them, I still no happy with them but I am getting better with colors.[img][/img]

Luz, You might want to try varying the width of the lines (by varying the pressure you put on the brush as you paint) ...but, those are beautiful!

I have enjoyed looking back over this thread.
I love that every butterfly is unique and that every child wearing one looks so happy Smile
For my part, I have been inspired by all of you. My butterfly has developed over the past few months... (I started painting in July) and will no doubt continue to change over time. I generally aim to keep them simple and fast. But I hope that as I develop more confidence with my brush technique I will be able to add a little more detail without stuffing them up.

Butterflies are not my favorite either. I love the designs out there and there are so many ways to do them that I am overwhelmed. But, I am hoping with more practice on others will help. Doing the left side of my face with the butterfly has been challenging. I have been a painter most of my life and using sponges with such precision takes some getting used to.

Don't be afraid to take a wipey and reshape your butterfly base Wink

Here are two I did last week. The one on the cheek was inspired by a painter on here. Can't remember her name right now.

Sorry they are a bit big right now. It takes sometime for the pictures to resize in photobucket Rolling Eyes
