Belly Painting time...

Some of you may know...I love face painting. I usually do it for the Carnival's and the 4th of July Celebrations here in town. But rarely, and I mean RARELY, do I get to paint on a pregnant belly!



But this weekend, I did! And it was so fun, until the pregnant woman let one rip and I had tears streaming down my face. AHhaha....

There are lots of different things you can paint on bellies; pumpkins, basketballs, etc. But we went with the more traditional...baby with a placenta!!!

Step One: Paint a skin colored blob with some blueish background.



Step Two: Add a placenta and some white cloudy stuff in the amniotic sac.



Step Three: Outline with Black. (Black makes ALL the difference!)



Step Four: Add shadows.



Step Five: All done. And I call it, "A noodle on a belly!" By Maija



Very cool if I do say so myself! hahaha.

It completely helps if you have a willing belly to paint though. Thanks Elsa.

Maija,

That is so cool...what a special gift for the baby, too.

You are so talented that it's scary. Everything you do is beautiful, seriously.

Wow, that is awesome! I would love to have someone paint my belly when I'm pregnant next time. It's such a special time with baby, because once he or she is born you have to share them with everybody.

Great job.. you are very talented!
My husband did a watermelon (cut, so you could see the inside) on my belly when I was expecting my youngest. It was fun!

That is so cool! You are so darn talented. That makes me sort of hate you a little bit.

Okay, come over to my blog and look at this homemade chicken plucker thing I found on Youtube.
