Airbrush How-To’s



When working on the skin, it is recommended that Body-Art Colors be airbrushed at 20 psi or less.

  1. Select Body-Art Colors and Body-Art Stencils.
  2. Clean the skin thoroughly with 70% Isopropyl alcohol.
  3. Remove the backing sheet from the stencil and apply it onto the cleaned body area.
  4. Using your Iwata airbrush, apply colors to your design.
    Overlap colors or designs – be daring or discreet.
  5. Finish with Medea Setting Powder for long lasting wearability from 2 – 5 days.


  1. Choose a tattoo design outline and color scheme.
  2. Clean the skin area using a cotton pad dampened with 70% Isopropyl alcohol.
  3. While the skin is still damp with alcohol, apply the tattoo design, ink side down to clean skin. Keep tattoo transfer sheet wet with alcohol and gently pat down design using a combination of the alcohol pad and forefinger to transfer the ink onto the skin. Remove the backing paper, leaving the design outline on the skin.
  4. Once dry, use Medea Setting Powder to set the design outline. Using a small paintbrush, paint on the colors into the design.
  5. Finish with Medea Setting Powder


  1. Following these steps will prolong the life of your Body-Art or Temporary Paint-On Tattoo.
  2. Use Medea Setting Powder before bedtime and the first thing in the morning. Also, apply powders before and after showers. Powder whenever possible!
  3. Avoid contacting painted area with oils, lotions or conditioners. Also avoid using soaps or oils on or near the painted area.
  4. When washing hair, rinse away from painted area so that shampoo or conditioner residue won’t cascade over the design.
