    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • stylus or pencil
    • tracing paper
    • transfer paper
    • scissors
    • #10 flat brush
    • #1 liner brush
    • Silhouette electronic cutting machine

    • foam finger



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Use a pencil or stylus to transfer the finger detail pattern on the foam finger. Hint: If you press hard enough, it will carve it a little bit so you can still see after you paint over it.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Use a #10 flat brush and Black Tie to fill in all of the hand except for a small border of the foam. Rinse brush.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Use a #1 liner brush and Silver (Metallic) to paint on all the finger details from the pattern already transferred.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Use the Silhouette machine and Con-Tact paper to cut your choice of words in your favorite fonts to fit the foam finger. (I used Con-Tact paper so it would stick to the finger for better stenciling results.) Remove the adhesive backing of the Con-Tact paper stencil and place firmly on the finger.
    8. Use a cosmetic sponge to pounce on Cotton Ball as a basecoat.
    9. Instruction #5
    10. Use a new cosmetic sponge to pounce on Lipstick, leaving the hatch-tag Cotton Ball for interest. Remove the Con-Tact paper stencil.
    11. Instruction #6
    12. Use a liner brush with Cotton Ball to outline the words. Rinse brush.
    13. Instruction #7
    14. Use the handle end of the same liner brush dipped in Silver (Metallic) to add polka dots in every other letter. Re-dip handle for each dot to keep a consistent size. Wipe off the handle end.
    15. Instruction #8
