You can also use a school gluestick instead of wet glue. A gluestick is usually used in these eyebrow-covering tutorials. ^_^ You don't have to wait as long for it to dry.

Yeah, they just really like mixing PVA glue with water in Art Attack. :P

I think it's just a difference between the names they call it in different countries.

I will try this method though some time. Make sure it's washable though lol

Oooh, I will definitely have to try this - dark brown eyebrows going to white! I'm not relishing the thought of completely covering them up with the eyebrow wax and then trying to cover THAT stuff up too *ugh*

This is amazingly helpful. Thank you :'D
I was fretting over how to make brown eyebrows blond xD I knew paint would work, but the glue thing is brilliant :3

I need to try this as soon as I get home from work. I have tried everything on my thick black eyebrows and nothing has worked yet. Thanks for posting this!

I just tried this on the underside of my arm and it works great for tatooes, too. I rubbed and rubbed it and it didn't come off, but peeled off completely when I grabbed the corner of the corner of the glue. I don't know how well it would hold off against sweat, but if you don't pick at it you should be fine. I'm going to use this method for Belldandy's tatooes.

Tatoos, yes If you've seen my temporary tattoos on the Marketplace, that's just ink implanted into medical adhesive :3

For eyebrows... It just looks too fake for my tastes ^.^;; Tried it once, too cartoony, even with natural colors.

A world so hollow it's breaking my heart

I have really thick dark eyebrows as well. I've used nose/scar wax to cover them in the past, but it doesn't work so well. I'll have to try the glue method now.

Not sure about the acrylic paint, but I'll experiment with it.

Thanks! I never would have thought about this. ^^

I do have to try this out myself...I'm Asian and have quite thick black eyebrows, so I'll give this a shot when I get some acrylic paint and schoolglue (man, I have every other paint except that and I claim to be an art major...XD) Thanks for the tutorial!
