How To Make Confetti Cakes!




Do you have some dried up, old, or seldom used paint lying around and just taking up space? Don't toss it out! Turn it into a fun, new confetti cake! Or, do like I did below, and make a whole palette of them! I turned an empty Tag palette into an assortment of confetti cakes, including bright colors, a neon cake, blues, greens, pastels and metallics!


Confetti cakes are great for adding fun textures and color combinations to your designs. Here is a video of how to create your own! Scroll down for some examples of what you can do with them!



Here are just a few ideas of things you can use confetti cakes for. But, the possibilities really are endless...


A pastel cake works great for Easter eggs! Just load a round sponge and pinch the top half to create an egg shape!
Really any color combination of confetti cake can make a cool looking gemstone. Want to learn more about painting realistic looking jewelry? Check out my book, "Jewelry for Face & Body Artists!"


Lollipops are a fun design that you can use confetti cakes for! Make it even more festive with some chunky glitter gel!

A confetti cake made up of different greens works great for creating a scaly texture for your snakes, dragons, dinosaurs and Ninja turtles!

Another example with the green cake...a turtle shell!
