i went to chicago yesterday...the day itself was hell, but i did manage to get to the art muesuem. Smiley anyway, while i was there, they had a display on old victorian furniture and sliver and stuff. i myself am not really a fan of furniture, but i went anyway. i was looking at a sign and it said something about these little pieces of paper that victorian people used to cover blemishes on thier face. it said the thin paper was shaped like stars and such. this is where the phrase 'starry eyed' came from because two little stars in the corners of the eyes symbolized passion. or something like that. i thought it would be cool, so i made some. theyre on both sides of my face, but im just showing one side, because *suprise* both sides look the same!


i think the regular computer paper that i used was too thick. i think i will try this with tissue paper. the stars are attached to my face with rubber cement. it actually works pretty well, and comes off nicely. o, and i colored over the stars with sliver reflective sharpie.

haha! what a crazy idea! But it looks awesome! In middle school we used to stick those metallic star stickers on our faces by our eyes, but they didn't look that cool.

I Love that!  It's really pretty and makes you look like an anime character.  They sell a special glue for your skin for gluing jewels and stuff like that.  It stinks way less than rubber cement and safer too.

Yes..
Don't use rubber cement. It's  not made to be used by your eyes, and could damage them.
Buy the glue for putting on false eyelashes, or spirit gum. It comes right off, and is safe to use around your eyes.

that's a cool idea. =] Thanks for sharing.

I was talking to my mom on the phone the other day and i was said "i put stars on my face with rubber cement! they look pretty cool!" and she was like: "get that rubber cement off your face right now! its not good for your skin!" ah, mothers. anyway, im too cheap to buy any kind of other glue at the moment  Undecided. maybe ill try flour and water...like paper mache, except not. i dont think that will hurt my face, will it?
