You might think I'm crazy, but I think it is time for a puff paint revival sans the sweatshirts and old man t-shirts. It is a little bit of amazing to see just how many different colors of puff paint there are. There's glitter, gloss, turquoise, and about 50 different shades of pink. I don't remember ever seeing so many different colors back in the 80s-90s which kinda puzzles me since I haven't seen a lot of puff paint out on the streets. Maybe the closet puff paint enthusiasts are hoarding it and wearing their creations alone at home Buffalo-Bill-in-Silence-of-the-Lambs style. It's a mystery to me.
Regardless, the variety makes it perfect for creating your own stick-on body jewelry and avoiding the $5 a pop commercial variety which can get a bit spendy and isn't entirely gratifying. The advantage of making your own body jewelry with puff paint is you can create little candies and mini pieces of art to apply to your face/body that can be thrown away without guilt and that won't smudge with sweat.
