Painting with Bubbles – Divine Fingerprint (Rainbow + Gold) Time Lapse

I wanted to continue exploring a new art medium using bubbles and food colouring which I started last week (link below). This time I used much more, like ridiculously more food colouring for the project so it would not be so washed out and transparent. I hope you like it as much as I do, because it turned out fantastic.

If you have any requests, feedback or replies (written or video), please post them below. I would love to hear from all of you.

Painting with Bubbles – Instructions & Time Lapse

I you haven’t been watching my previous videos I have been inspired like crazy by the things I’ve found on Pinterest, so checkout my Handi Mandi TV Pinterest Page to see what I’ve pinned. If you like something you find, repin or let me know in the comment below if you want me to make a video on it.
So this week I’ve experimented with painting . . . using bubbles, yes, bubbles. It works best with food colouring, you can also use liquid watercolours. I stress liquid, because the paint won’t dissolve and it’s not enough colour saturation as it is with the food colouring. You may want to mix your own blend of bubble mix as it may not be ‘soapy’ enough depending on the brand you purchase. I’ll looking forward to exploring this medium more next week.
If you have any feedback or requests, I would LOVE to hear from you, so sound off in the comments below.

Handi Mandi TV – Make-Up Look – Minimal Classic

I’m continuing the focus on Make-Up/Beauty trends that transition from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter. This look is for a subtle eye if you want to do the purple, brown, burgundy, red lip forecasted for this upcoming fall or any dramatically coloured lip. It’s a double eyeliner, starting black and a subtle colour on top.
Tips:
* The more subtle the colour you choose for the second eye-liner, the more your lips pop out as they will be the center of focus
* You can match/contrast the colour of your eyeliner to your lip colour to create cohesion/levels (respectably)

A special thank you for all my birthday wishes from friends and family and a sneak at some of the bargain hunting I did the day before at the mall. Finally, I give you guys a little taste of the design I’ve been working on [second Behance link, illustration called ‘Uchben Hatsutsil (“Ancient Beauty” in Mayan) ‘]

This is where I walk you through all the images that I used for inspiration and give you a look at how my mind works in developing my designs and how I do my research for each fashion illustration that you can find on my Behance portfolio.

Watch me colour my hand-drawn fashion illustration using Laurentien pencil crayons and drawing pens. Learn some of the techniques I use to add definition and depth to the illustration and the techniques to make it stand off the page. Bring your patience and passion, because although it’s a 12-13 minute video it took hours to do. Patience + Passion = Perfection.
