White Lace is so elegant and looks great in the summer on tanned skin, perfect for any occasion. Follow these steps to paint your own lace glove design!
Begin by marking out of the centre of hand and arm with dots spaced every few inches, using a Round Number 1 Brush and White Facepaint. This will take some practice, and depend on the size of the arm. You can use the same brush for the whole design.
Next link up the dots with teardrops and swirls to make a shape like a diamond.
Continue to use the central dots as a guide and add flowers.
Add teardrops around the lower "V" shape and also coming from the centre flower on the hand. Then add leaves around flowers and on fingers.
Keep building the design by adding swirls and teardrops. You can also fill spaces with dots, just have fun with it!
Once you are satisfied with your design, you can begin linking up the teardrops and flowers etc. You can continue with the round number 1 brush like I did, or a liner brush or 0.5.
These lines need to be thin, as you want the to appear as stitches holding the lace together.
Clean your brush thoroughly and dry with a towel so it's still slightly damp and load with Black Powder, now add shadows below until you are satisfied.
Finally reload a number 1 brush with Diamond FX white and add highlights where needed.
This design would also work well if you added glitter or gems, very beautiful at a wedding!
