Recycling My False Lashes

Recyling False Lashes

As you can imagine over the years I’ve used up a lot of false lashes. Generally I’m not a fan of throwing things away if I can avoid it. There is almost always a way to recycle things, maybe even turn it into a little piece of art? So today I want to show you the eye art pieces I’ve been creating over the past two years and how to make them.

Most of the time I use watercolours to make these, but I’ve used acrylic paints, even coffee! I love waiting till I’ve collected enough lashes, then just sitting down, picking up whatever medium takes my fancy and letting my hands do the thinking.

The Collection

What I used: The Works Canvas Pack • Watercolour palette • False Lashes • Clear Nail Varnish


If you want to see how I put together the custom water colour palette I have a blog post about it here. Like I mentioned before, you don’t have to use watercolour, you can use whatever you want. You could even use makeup if you wanted? Actually, let’s make this into a challenge. If you liked the idea behind this videos what medium would you like me to use next?

    I absolutely love them. Could you possibly draw one entirely with pencil? Or maybe even melted wax?
    You are so inspirational.
