Rhinestone Pasties - the showgirl essential
Am I right? An absolute essential for your outfit, whether you be burlesque showgirl or pole dancer, one must have a pair of sparkly pasties.
Sparkly pasties are like frosting on a cake. It adds a little extra something to what's underneath.
Have you ever wanted to make your own, but don't know where to start? Well I can help with that... with the Whitelane pastie template planner.
For many years, I would "wing it" when it came to planning out a pair of pasties for a client or just my own creative diversion. And needless to say, my nature that tends towards careful planning was at odds with this method. So I had a conundrum to solve.
As I use a specially moulded pastie base, I had to *gasp* cut into a prepared base and sketch out the shape of a 3 dimensional object onto a flat surface, sectioned into eighths. The image below is the result of this.
It may look overwhelming, but its based on the simple concept of a mirror image around the eight wedges, such as this.
I tend to plan out ideas with Illustrator these days (to save picking up stray rhinestones out of the carpet), but it works just as well with a printed copy.
