It's Teal, Lilac, and purple. You can make your own! I'm going to have to make a version with pink instead of teal. I got several request for pink and purple last night Smile

This is my contribution,,The first I did by mucking around with my marine split cake..The second is my first attempt at a faba tv design..And the last is a pretty dismal first attempt at a monarch butterfly..I do love all these butterflies on here. There are so many different ways to paint them..Yay we will never get bored. url=http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=47&u=16270909][/url]

I have had some requests for butterflies without the center piece from older customers (late teens-adults.)This is what I came up with butterfly shaped...

Mine don't seem to evolve much Sometimes they "devolve" lol. Here is a quick-and-dirty version of this popular butterfly from yesterday's 100 degree party in Maryland. Don't know who to credit for the original design, but the photography credit goes to Daizy ;-) who inspired me to try some new angles and focal lengths.
I used the Wolfe sparkly dark pink color, and the DFX pearl white. Hmm...does Paradise have a pearl white? I hate trying to blend DFX.

I'm not original it's true, my gift is matching color and scale to faces and outfits. I keep my lines moving at my pony/FB combo parties by asking "Butterfly, My Little Pony, or Horse or Unicorn?" Then I match the colors and motifs to what they are wearing. The Moms love it, and the kids too as they pretty much like what they're wearing, at least the strong minded ones...or they wouldn't be wearing it!!

Here are two more line-movers. Both could be dressed up with dots, outlines, and teardrops but right now, rainbow cakes are still such a phenomenon in my area that the ooh's and aah's of the miracle of transformation seem to satisfy, especially in the heat. I am trying to put nothing but Snaz close to the kids' eyes, I do mostly the under-six year old set, and I switched out of most of it and need to build a set of basic Snaz back up in my kit for this purpose, thus the lack'o eye coverage on the one girl.

Ponygirl,
Why do you use nothing but Snaz close to the eyes? I use DFX, Wolf and Paradise. Should I not use those close to the eyes on children?

I'm just a fuss. Snaz you can use everywhere, or so it says. Others - some you aren't supposed to use around the eyes, others around the mouth. I don't paint every day or for more than an hour at a time mostly so I can't seem to keep it straight. I know one thing - neons aren't approved by FDA or something is what I heard and I won't even have them in my kit except for a tiny Artycake or so. I have way too much liability with the ponies as it is, I don't want to add to it with the face paints.
I painted for three years with just Snaz and never had an issue and would like to keep it that way - but to each his own! Not trying to start trouble, some time down the line we'll all find folks with allergies and it mostly won't be our fault. I paint a lot of babies, little things, so I need a second 'kit' to keep them safe. I'm new to this Forum and FP is a sideline for me unfortunately. I just do what I can do, like we all do, and I'm not an authority I'm too lazy to do that. Just trying to keep it simple for me (even tho if you saw my kit you'd think I was Hollywood bound, lol. Eats all my profits!!)

skylark I think your design is good. I'd concentrate on brushwork - do you anchor a finger someplace so you can draw your brush along as it's stablized by that finger? If you do that, your hand and arm will create 'arcs' that look really natural.
I'd also try making different sized dots. You have them in the right place, but if you notice the really slick butterflies (as well as the ones in nature) have random-sized dots. Try it and see.

Right ponygirl. I have used the tips and created this one. Again it is OK but will need a lot more practice. Kids would probably love it but I can see all the places that I could improve. It would probably be a bit easier on a face that is not mine. Very Happy

This is gorgeous, I really struggle with the more realistic style of butterfly. You have done a great job!

Britty, what are the colors in the little girls butterfly? Is it bright blue and hot pink or dark pink? I love the contrast! I'm trying to get ideas for split cakes Smile

Inspired by Daizy. This is one that I did on my 2yr old this morning. She is a little wrigger so some of the lines are not as neat as I would like but that is the joy of woking on a moving canvas.

Here is a quick butterfly I did yesterday. I've got a VBS on Friday and I wanted a quick 2 minute butterfly and this is what I came up with. I still think I would like some dark purple on the outer, but I can tweek it in the future.



The colors were inspired by Britty, but she used a SF Aqua cake. This is just 2 colors of Paradise Wink

The design was inspired by Daizy's butterflies and googled butterflies.

I also see Kelly's avatar which reminds me of it as well.

If anyone else feels it looks like theirs, please feel free to add your name, too. Razz Laughing
