1. Starting off with the Metallic Baby Blue Face Paint, and your round #4 brush. Activate the paint, by adding a little water, and mixing the paint with your brush. Load your brush with the paint, and begin to draw an outline of a crescent moon shape, on the cheek or arm.

2. Next, using the white face paint, and the same brush, (Make sure it’s rinsed well!) Start to paint clouds on the sides of the moon shape. You can do this style of clouds by painting medium to small round circles that overlap each other.

3. Next, using the #0 round brush and the black face paint, start to outline your design.  Make spiral shapes on top of the circles, letting them overlap and intersect each other, as much or as little as you would like.

4. Finally, using the #4 round brush, and the white face paint, add dots in and around the moon, to add stars. Add a few sunbursts too.
