Temporary Tattoo Ideas From Real Dried Flowers
Probably aged people can remember the past times, which lacked of tattoo art designs. There were many simple ideas for doing fake tattoos, which were welcomed and used to distinguish you and make an inspiration for your peers. And the time when tattoos became popular and common, there were few risky people who would apply some pictures on their bodies.
Hence, we have found this article an interesting one, as it includes cool ideas for having painless and temporary tattoos with natural basis. Emily Geraghty who loves creating original content for the digital audience, suggests 3 main tutorial steps to get the work done.
Step 1: Buy your flowers!
Emily used two potted African violets: one with pink flowers and one with dark purple, as well as two red carnations for a bright pop, but you can use any colors you want.
2. Express-press your flowers!
Instead of sticking the flower buds in a book as we did in the past, Emily dried them out in 30 seconds with a microwave. She put her flowers face down on a paper towel on top of a plate, then put another paper towel on top of the blossoms, and then pressed them down with another plate.
Emily noted that the red carnations kept a lot more of their color during the drying process, and were more solid than the violets after coming out of the microwave. She mentions that it’s secret to take all the delicate petals off the hot paper towels immediately, and transfer them right-side-up to a dry paper towel.
3. Apply your petals!
In order to affix the ready flowers, Emily used brush-on eyelash glue. She painted a little bit on her skin and carefully patted the flower into place. On petals that didn’t quite stick, she used the eyelash glue like Mod Podge and decoupaged them into place over the petals. After she finished her design, she sealed the flowers by spraying them with hairspray. The result is amazing!
