Construction themed parties can leave you searching the internet, trying to find designs you can feature. When I had to prepare for one this week, I spent some time researching construction photographs, and then I put together some cheek art and masks which I thought might be speedy enough to paint for a party, but would look good on the face. I hope this simple construction design will help you put something special on your board if you happen across this theme in the future.

In the video, I said to paint a triangle in the center of the forehead, but I meant to say diamond. (Evidently I’m shape-challenged. It’s kind of like a person who reverses left and right when giving directions.) You can also use a triangle, since it’s common to see triangular construction signs, but the diamond is what I choose for this design.

Happy painting!
