The BEST BIGGEST Butterfly blog ever! by Silly Heather
Butterflies have been one of the most requested face painting designs since the beginning of face painting. The butterfly design has evolved from a cheek art, to a breathtaking design that can be remixed a million ways. I have been collecting butterfly faces for years and my goal is to keep on adding to this blog for years to come. So that if you are ever in a butterfly slump this can be your go to eye candy. If you have a butterfly image you want to contribute please email it to me at
I hope you enjoy and refer back to this blog when you need a butterfly boost! Keep on scrolling ot the very bottom for helpful links to videos and tutorials on butterflies
