You don’t need paint to make art! Choose whatever you want: blush, eyeshadow, flowers, toothpaste, and even iron! Watch our new video to learn awesome lifehacks for drawing! Redhead is worked up! She found an announcement of a competition for the world’s most original painting and drawing lifehack! A creative artist like her absolutely has to participate! You can draw with colored pencils, or with colored pencil shavings! Draw a ballerina silhouette. Sharpen a pencil.
Make the ballerina’s tutu out of the shavings. Redhead has sharpened so many pencils that she has enough material to fill a whole canvas! She blows away the excess — and the ballerina gets an amazing tutu! A low-cost idea for a ballet costume! Stephanie also wants to participate in the contest. Stephanie decided to use live flowers instead of paint! Draw a lovey-dovey couple.
Attach two small roses instead of heads. Now her picture will bloom and flourish! Redhead is trying to come up with a way to make a beautiful portrait! Easy! Use makeup! Print out a template of a face. Rub dry makeup powder over it. Color the neck and ears. Use matte brown eyeshadow for the hair. Use the same eyeshadow for the cheekbones, temples, edges of the nose. Sculpt the face. Apply blush to the cheeks. Brush shadows onto the eyebrows.
Use your fingers to rub three shades of highlighters onto the eyelids. Make shimmery eyeshadow. Color the eye with green eyeshadow and an applicator. Line the lower lid. Rub coral-tone eyeshadow into the lips. Secure the picture with a hairspray. Redhead is honing her skills as a makeup artist! What a realistic portrait! This portrait’s makeup is perfect! Stephanie can make one picture using acrylic paints and watercolors! She united the two techniques! Dampen watercolor paper with water. Apply watercolor swirls. When the paint dries, outline flowers using acrylic paint.
Use a wooden stick to make dots in the centers. Paint soft lines on the petals. Fill the whole paper with flowers. Stephanie’s paper is covered with beautiful blooming flowers! This painting is simple, but a great addition to her portfolio! Let’s try using an iron instead of a brush! We’ll need crayons and a hot iron. Carefully coat the surface of the iron with the crayons. And make a print on laminated cardboard. Mix different crayon colors on the iron to make swirls and gradients.
Iron the whole sheet. After you’re done, just wipe the crayon traces off. Smooth out a masterpiece! It turned out so beautiful! Stephanie wants to try using weird materials! All’s fair in art and war. She looks through the things she has. And chooses toothpaste! Let’s get some colorful construction paper. And white toothpaste. Draw dandelions using a synthetic brush and the toothpaste. Add thin fluffy details with a skewer. These dandelions are shining with cleanness and good dental hygiene!
Usually, Redhead uses blush on her lips! But not today! She’ll use blush instead of paints and brushes! Pick out two old blush you don’t use anymore. Use an old makeup brush to draw long, flowy hair. Finish the hair with a thin brush. Add blush hearts. Trace contours with the toothpick and black COLOR. Redhead made a romantic portrait without using any paint! Just good old makeup! Stephanie accidentally spilled paint on her drawing! But she’s a real artist, so she sees something interesting in the stain!
Use acrylic paint to make bright colorful spots on a printed-out template of a face. Accent different parts. Make colorful strands of hair. Color in the background. This stained portrait quickly turned into stylish pop art! The more colorful spots, the better! Stephanie can turn anything into a painting! But doing it alone is boring! She calls Redhead! The assignment is to make an interesting dress out of unusual materials! Let’s get started! Print out a template of a girl in a dress.
Color her hair, face, and body with colored pencils. Cut one edge off of pink Q-tips. And glue them to shape the dress. Start at the bottom. Overlap each following layer. Cover the top of the dress with the centers of the sticks horizontally. Attach the cotton as decoration. The girls show off their creations! Whose idea is better? Q-tips of toothpicks? We’ll use toothpicks on the next template. Cover the whole dress. Attach short pieces to make it look like moving fabric. Add a thread belt.
I hope this toothpick dress isn’t as prickly as it looks! Do you have anything softer? Cover a third dress template with Oreo crumbs. Sprinkle them onto the surface after coating it with glue. Add white accents with flour. The girls worked hard and the result is amazing! All three dresses deserve awards! Stephanie drew a regular picture! But she can make it funnier using an optical illusion! At first, the cat was on the floor, and then it became part of its owner! Print out a funny picture. Put parchment paper on top. And trace it with a pencil. Move the picture slightly. And re-draw the cat away from the owner.
Turn the parchment paper over and shade it in with a pencil. Put the parchment paper onto a clean sheet. And transfer the drawing onto it. Trace the outline of the man. Then transfer the cat onto his knees. Color the picture with a black marker. Redhead drew a different picture using the same technique! The plot is simple: a man is holding a black cat. But the man is so bald! Redhead quickly places the cat on his head! It looks like an Elvis Presley wig! This black cat must be good luck!
A sweet banana inspired Stephanie to draw her favorite animated characters! Sketch out a Minion picture in pencil on a banana. Color the drawing with gouache. Paint eyes, the goggles, a toothy smile, and blue overalls. Accent Minion with yellow gouache. Stephanie drew her beloved minions! Now she won’t get bored in her studio! She can always chat with these banana lovers! Redhead is out of ideas. Time to snack on a tangerine! Hmm, there’s an idea! Put half a peeled tangerine on a sheet of paper. Draw jellyfish tentacles coming from it. Redhead’s artistic powers transform a tangerine into a citrus jellyfish.
Although it won’t swim far away! Stephanie loves space and stars! So she decides to create it on paper! Make a circle on watercolor paper. Paint it in with watercolors. Make loose swirls. Get white acrylic paint on a brush. And sprinkle it over the planet. Paint stars with the brush. Link the dots into constellations. Making a new planet is easy! Especially if you have the right paint for the job. Why does Redhead need so much painter’s tape? Is she renovating her house? Or is it just a new art lifehack?
Make a painter’s tape frame on a sheet of watercolor paper. Draw a citrus fruit in the center. Cut drops out of painter’s tape. And stick them wherever you want seeds on the drawing. That’ll keep them blank without using white paint. Paint the drawing with watercolors. When dry, remove the tape. Define the outlines with a thin black pen. All done. Redhead can’t take off the final piece of tape! Finally, the fruits are ready! Redhead decided to try a life hack from the internet! Let’s use yarn! Draw a snail.
Glue yarn onto the drawing. Use multipurpose glue. That’s how Redhead decided to draw a minimalist snail! It’s an easy way to use yarn for art! Stephanie gets a similar idea, but instead of yarn, she uses a woven cord! Draw a pattern on thick paper. And glue the cord onto it. Stephanie made a textile drawing! An elegant cord pattern!
