Mica, glimmer or shimmer tattoos (depending on your supplier) are created with stencils, acrylic adhesive and cosmetic mica OR use the glue and draw on using the squeeze bottle, a tiny hand rolled cone or paint brush!
The stencils are made of 3 parts, (simple stencils without many tiny pieces are sturdy and can be re reused several times). Clean the skin with an alcohol pad and peel off the backing of the stencil. Apply the stencil set to the skin and peel off the top clear layer. leaving the stencil on the skin.
Apply a THIN and even layer of acrylic adhesive (this is a medical/cosmetic glue used for prosthetics and contains no latex). Allow to dry to a clear tack and then brush mica directly onto the glue. Using a brush or finger rub the mica into the glue for good coverage and adhesion.
Gently peel off the stencil, if you remove it carefully and don't tear it you can reuse it! Stick it back on the stencil paper and save for another time. Less glue is better - thin even applications will create a longer lasting mica tattoo!
