It may sound a bit strange at first, but hear us out. bump painting is starting to be a ‘thing’ and we can see why. That big beautiful bump is the perfect blank canvas to get creative. Body painting in general is increasing in popularity, a quick Google will bring up a huge array of styles, so why not embrace the bump and get creative. You may have to rope in a friend or loved one here, particularly as bump gets bigger or you could even get the professionals in. Why not spend the day being pampered, painting and then end with a fantastic photo shoot – amazing! When decorating your bump make sure you opt for non-toxic face or body paints to protect baby from any nasty toxins or why not make your own – take a look at this recipe from personalcreations.com, but do use natural food colouring and pregnancy safe lotion. If you are pregnant over a holiday season, why not have some fun – you could paint an elf at Christmas or decorate your bump like a present. If over Halloween why not incorporate your bump into your costume, or why not take it to another level like this couple and get TOH to replicate your favourite painting / drawing on your bump but only using your guided instructions, what could possibly go wrong? We would love to see your decorated bumps so do share them with us.
