I'm getting more confident with freehand stuff, what works and what doesn't and how to control the glue. I'm super pleased with how this turned out!

Very nice. How long did it take? What would you charge? I love free hand as well but it just takes too long at a festival.

Hey Lauri,

I'm not sure how long it took exactly? I wasn't watching :p Not really super long though, I find the longest part of freehand is waiting for the glue to dry!!

I'm trying to push this more and more at festivals, and people are responding really well, and I start at $15 for freehand stuff (the price of my largest stencils) I'm still trying to figure it out too :p but since my market is adult oriented music festivals thankfully I get more of the higher priced pieces, and more time to play with them Smile

I'm looking forward to doing some adult stuff this summer. I have a bar next to my downtown restaurant and I just got my neon glitters. If I can stay (awake:sleep: ) after work, I think I would have to real audience for doing neon glitter tattoos for the bar crowd. We'll see.

It's really lovely. Can you tell us what, if any problems you ran into while doing it?

You did a great job. Did you use a cone, brush, etc.? I am starting to experiment with freehand, too. I was looking at the Ybody pink glue cones and thinking I could probably make them myself with a different/cheaper glue, but I'm not sure what glue would work best, probably a thicker glue.
