Easy Monster Mouth Face Paint Design

Ah little boys love to be scary!  My son has grown up around face paints, and has been painted many times, so much so, that now I have to persuade to let me practice on him! This is a rare occasion! Special, just for mom because it’s her favorite holiday, Halloween!
Although now he only goes for shorter sessions. On a wiggle scale of 1 to 10, I give him a 8. So this was a quick wiggly session. I would expect the same of the average boy his age.


Medium #4 Round Brush
Small Round #1 (1/16″) Brush
High Density Hydra Foam Sponge

paper towels or cloth
water container
(optional) Fine Mist Spray bottle with water
optional) Baby wipes

Colors used in this picture:

Black Face Paint
White Face Paint
Yellow Face Paint
Brown Face Paint
Red Face Paint

1.  Using a hydra sponge cut in half and yellow face paint, cover the entire face lightly by dabbing evenly, avoiding eyes.

2. Using the white paint and a small round brush, paint the outline of where you want the mouth to go. Going over the nose, and covering a large amount of the face, can really make it scary!


3. Fill in the middle of the mouth using red, and white for the teeth.  Make sure to get the lips and around the nose. He did very well with this, considering his wiggle factor and how ticklish those areas are for people.


3. Add black to the middle of the mouth, blend into the red. Then, add more rows of teeth.


5. Using brown, and yellow, add shading to the teeth. Add a line of red around the mouth as well.

6. Finally, using black and a small round, outline the teeth. Do your best to add as much detail as Mr. Wiggles will allow.  As patience was wearing out on our little model, I went ahead and quickly added some details around the eyes, some angry eyebrows, and some wrinkle lines.

And he’s off, out the door to play with neighborhood friends!  Happy Halloween!
