Cry for Dawn

Super easy tutorial forĀ 3-D designs you can apply to skin.
I wanted to tears for my Dawn costume to really stand out, so I made them with dimensional paint! You can also make 3-D tattoos, scars and any kind of skin art this way.
1) All you need is saran wrap, Tulip dimensional paint and your design printed out if you aren’t doing it freehand
2) If you are doing an intricate design, tape your printed or drawn design on something like a small box or piece of cardboard then cover it with the plastic wrap
3) Trace your design with the dimensional paint. Go slow and make sure your lines are nice and thick. You can use any color as long as the bottle says “dimensional.” I always use Tulip brand, which can be found almost anywhere- JoAnn’s, Michaels, Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, etc.
4) Let dry overnight and peel off when ready to use
5) Apply to skin with spirit gum and just peel off when you are done! Design can be reused if you stick it back on any kind of plastic surface
