This easy Watercolor Floral Face Mask project only requires a few supplies, and is ready to wear in no time! First make sure your mask has been washed and dried (without fabric softener).
Before getting started on decorating your face mask, it helps to secure it to a nice rounded object to fully stretch it out and help it remain stable as you decorate it. Here are The Colorventurer’s tips on how to create each flower shown:
Cabbage Rose: Using the fuchsia Fabric Marker (or color of choice), start by drawing a small swirl shape, then create a few curved lines around the swirl to expand the flower. Switch to another color to add dimension to the flower design with a few more concentric curved lines. With the green marker, draw leaves on either side of the cabbage rose. To add dimension to the leaves and to give it that watercolor effect, use the yellow marker on the edges of the leaves.
Daisy: Draw a yellow center with the yellow Fabric Marker, then make petals around it with the fuchsia or other desired marker color. Use the purple marker to draw thin lines onto the petals. Lastly, add some leaves to the flower with the green marker.
Cistus: Draw and fill in the flower's petals with the orange Fabric Marker. To create the dots in the center of the flower, simply tap the red and fuchsia markers around the center of the flower. Complete the flower with some leaves.
Tulip: With the yellow Fabric Marker, create the center of the tulip, then leaving a small gap between each section, draw the top and outside petals on both sides. Next, with the orange fabric marker, fill in the gaps. Add a stem and leaves with the green and yellow markers.
Snapdragon: Draw a stem with the green Fabric Marker, then with the yellow fabric marker, create a swirl at the top of the stem. To add some dimension to the flower, take the red marker and add some smaller swirls within the yellow—the color will blend out into the yellow of the snapdragon.
To make the flowers pop once the mask is dry, accent the designs with Dimensional Paints in either coordinating colors, or contrasting shades if you’re feeling extra bold! Let dry completely.
