Another Noob question...

Post by IamGinaW on Thu Oct 07, 2010 1:18 am

How do you double load a brush with face paints? I mean, I've see many designs that look like a round brush with white and some other color used for things like flowers. How do you load the brush? Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

Load up white or whatever colour then touch the tip of your brush on a towel and load up another colour just on the tip - then you just press the brush on the skin to make a petal print.
You can just load both colours but you can end up with a lot of paint on your brush so the touching the tip on a towel thing stops it building up to much.

Thats a good idea with the towel Tash, I might have to try it!
I usually load my size 4 round brush with white and then spray the tip colour with water and dip the tip of the brush into the paint.
You then just press the brush down keeping the tip of the brush in the centre to form a point.

I have practiced and practiced to try and get the shape just right.

I have a brush from Snaz that I love to use for these flowers. The trick is to load it w/ white & then the tip w/ the color of your choice(I like the towel idea). Then us the brush point 1st & lay it down(don't pull out or swipe as this will cause a longer year drop & not look so delicate).

I just wanted to bump up this thread...I've been so frustrated trying to get double dipped flowers to work and now I've got it thanks to Tash's towel dabbing suggestion. Thanks, Tash! Hopefully it will help another relative newbie...

I just liberally fill up the brush with a light color and then wiggle around just the tip in a darker color. They you plop the brush down and you've got two colors.

I do the same as ashley, and occasionally I will roll my brush across two colors on a split, one stroke or rainbow

As I have a gooey spot on my paints it is fairly straightforward, load in one colour, then just touch the tip to the other...

I don't get transfer... and trust me, if I did I wouldn't be doing it that way! I hate messy paints. Wink
