Our temporary tattoos are originally meant to be fake tattoos worn on people like you and me... Yes, perfect. But they also have other uses, here are a few examples… among a large number of possibilities.

Here on a Venus bust. The tattoos are resistant to time provided you apply a transparent varnish after having applied them.

Not bad is not it? The bust was made with the "La vie en rouge" ephemeral tattoo board.

And finally, let's go for a little tutorial.

How to achieve this?

First, go to a flea market (physical or online), you will surely find a soliflore. What is this ? A vase for a single flower, a porcelain hand. If it is not white (it happens), spray it a bit (outdoors please) and let it dry well.

Seen from above, it looks like this (the hand is hollowed out to contain the flower).

After having applied the tattoo of your choice (here a flower from the Blue Valley plate), it is absolutely necessary to apply a transparent varnish with a brush. For what? So that it stays in place once and for all! (Like a real one in the end..)
