Amazing...! o.o And I have all this paint around the house, too...! xD

#4 Krethes on 10 years ago

O___O See...now this makes much more sense than using eye shadow. -bookmarks-
Youji eyebrows are stupid and blue, so this shall come in handy!

Thanks a lot, november.eyes! I was just thinking a bit earlier if I should make my eyebrows white for Ryohei, and how I could. ^_^ I think I will go ahead and do it, and use your method.

...I literally just got back from buying eyeliner and eyeshadow to do my eyebrows with >_<
Oh well, it was only $4.20, I guess I'll try both and see what looks better =] Thanks for the tips!

[edit] By the way, by 'school glue' do you mean like... That white glue that dries clear?

Yes, the kind that comes in a bottle. The kind everyone uses in primary school to make arts and crafts XD

School glue = PVA glue, in case you want to put that in your tutorial for reference. :3

#9 Jequila on 10 years ago

Ah, that's what I know it as, PVA =]
Gave this a try, worked nicely. I'm trying to find a way to cover my eyebrows to make them smaller like Axel's. Tried the foundation, concealer, powder trio, and it worked ok, as long as you put on enough layers of glue to get it smooth like skin, rather then lumpy with hair. You could still faintly see them though... So I'll see what else I can do :B Any ideas?

#10 november.eyes on 10 years ago

It might just be my misunderstanding of ArtAttack, but I was under the impression that PVA glue was glue with water mixed into it? Was I wrong?

Ah, as I mentioned above, concealer doesn't look to pretty overtop the glue, because concealer itself isn't too thick (so it doesn't clog pores). Infact, it's rather see through. Have you tried a skin colour paint yet?

Make sure your paint isn't too watery as the more watery it is, the more layers you'll have to paint on (hence why tempura and watercolour paints don't work at all).

Hope that helps :)

Just my 2 cents:

I have BLACK eyebrows and NOTHING works to color them, not the colored mascara, not the Ben Nye hair color, nothing.

I have faked it in the past with a colored pencil, but tomorrow is AX and my new wig is silver. So I figured I'd give this a try...

It worked really well! I wore the glue/ paint for the last hour and just washed it off. Everything worked fine and it washed off easily with a tiny bit of scrubbing and some soap.

So I'll be trying it tomorrow and hoping it holds up for the con.

Thanks for the tutorial =)

-smacks head- why didn't I think of that? Though I'm not sure if I'll be able to mix my coloured skin >w<;; I'll experiment later today and see what happens. This is a really great method =D

Oh, and you might be thinking of water based. PVA is a water based glue, so it cleans up with water :) Hence why schools use it, it's cheap and easy to clean x3

^_^ thanks i been searching for another method cause the eyeshadow thing doesn't work for me X_X and now i found it :D
must try it .. as soon as i get glue XD

#14 KittyCanuck on 10 years ago

You can also use a school gluestick instead of wet glue. A gluestick is usually used in these eyebrow-covering tutorials. ^_^ You don't have to wait as long for it to dry.

Yeah, they just really like mixing PVA glue with water in Art Attack. :P

I think it's just a difference between the names they call it in different countries.

I will try this method though some time. Make sure it's washable though lol
