Welcome to the second installment of my blog post about Face and Body Art bling. If you missed the first, exciting installment you can read it here!
If you remember, I was attempting to start a movement away from the use of plastic-based bling clusters by face and body artists, and towards biodegradable ones (I’ve decided to call them BioBling).
Encouragingly the response has largely been a positive one, with requests about the materials I used. These are what I have experimented with so far and been pretty happy with:
Although my technique is quite rudimentary, I mentioned last week that i was sure we as creative people would quickly come up with advances. And I was not disappointed!
Please allow me to introduce you to Anne Savigny-Belléard, artist and owner of Les Pinceaux de la licorne face painting who tagged me in a post today to show me her version of BioBling. I’m going to make her BioBling Star of the Week!
Here’s what she posted:
The bling (apart from the heart of course) is made from paper using quilling. For those unaware of the technique, here’s a couple of informative websites to check out:

I think this idea will be revolutionary! Here’s why…
Quilling can get addictive! I bet many creative face and body artists are already familiar with the technique, , and what a great, relaxing accompaniment to a glass of wine or the telly in the evening.
What’s not to love? Thank you so much, Ann for sharing your new discovery.
I can’t wait to hear about all YOUR BioBling ideas. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Maybe we can get enough people interested to start a Facebook support group for swapping ideas and developing new ones.
Thanks for checking in. Have a wonderful week!
