For the past few weeks I have been finishing up my finals for school. It has been a time consuming process but I am so happy with the projects I was able to create! For my photography class final, I decided to focus on painted illusions. I shared one of the projects with you already here. Today I thought I would show you a few more that I did using just hands.

All of the designs were done with face paint. As I have mentioned in the past, it is important to use the correct paint when working on people. You can find all kinds of face painting supplies in my Amazon store (ps…this is an affiliate link). I did mess around with the final pictures using Photoshop, as that was part of my photography class. I love that program as I can use it to jazz up my painted designs.

Which one is your favorite? Do you like the pretty or the scary!!??
