"Lipstick on a Mirror" effect with BC... or any other medium you think would work better?

I've yet to try anything, but want some jumping off points when I do. I was thinking of smearing it with my finger, a popsicle stick, a dowel...

oooor, could I get away with just using plain 'ole lipstick?! It is only going to be on the board so no one will be eating it, or any part of it. Obviously I know that lipstick is generally not intended for consumption but I can't help but wonder about it's exact toxicity (or lack thereof) when it's used so close (and often enters) the mouth.

And BTW this project is for family, nonpaid.

Off too Google I go..

I think that considering no one will eat the part where lipstick is needed, you should just use plain old fashioned lipstick or use red luster dust, lipstick with obviously look best! icon_smile.gif

I'd go with gel colors smeared with your finger or a q tip.

Haha! I can't even imagine that any of us at one time or another has NOT eaten (either on purpose or by accident) some amount of lipstick. And we all turned out okay, right?! Hehe.

I'm psyched though because I actually did some research and found that WetnWild lipstick (the cheapie 99cent stuff.. only stuff I use!) is lead-free and considered Non-Toxic. Walgreens, here I come! icon_smile.gif

However..... if anyone has any suggestions, or objections, please don't hesitate. Thanks!

Rylan... that is a good idea and I hadn't thought of it. Perhaps if I add more gel than BC I can get the color saturation I want along with the opacity of lipstick...?

Yes cupcakedeco, that sounds like a good idea.
