DIY Temporary Tattoos: Draw It, Print It, Ink Itby Pepper Baldwin
Thinking about trying a brand-new look, but without the commitment? Here's all the info you need to design and create personalized temporary tattoos! Try out a design for a permanent tattoo, create a unique look for a special night out, design buzz-worthy wedding favors, or incentivize your kids to eat their veggies with a reward scheme. Comprehensive practical information explains how to draw patterns to express your individual style or adapt designs from the web, and shows you how to print your creation onto temporary tattoo paper. Plus, inspirational galleries cover a range of classic and contemporary tattoo themes, including Celtic symbols, animals and flowers, lettering, ships and mermaids, stars, and holiday motifs. DIY Temporary Tattoos has all the know-how you need to completely transform your look (even if it's just for one night!).
This unique book offers an alternative to people who aren't quite ready to commit to a permanent tattoo. Baldwin, a designer and retailer of temporary tattoos, covers a lot of considerations for a successful temporary tattoo in her first book. The focus is on creating your own tattoo designs with discussion on placement, size, and composition. The book takes readers from original creations to tracing an existing pattern or use of online offerings. Once the creation is printed onto temporary tattoo paper, directions follow on how to apply and treat the tattoo for longer wear. Baldwin's great instruction includes thumbnail pictures for steps in the process, and once the technique is learned, the possibilities abound. Half of the book comprises an inspirational gallery, and some illustrations include a QR code (quick response code) to access designs online. VERDICT There is nothing else quite like this title, which fills a niche. Highly recommended.
