How to Face Paint a Frankenstein Monster

Classic Frankenstein is a Halloween Staple. There are many ways you can change it up, add stitches, have the bolts on the neck too. I like this design because it’s simple, fast and easy, and you get scary results fast!

1. First, grab you an adorable cute little one, and cover their face with green face paint, using half of the hydra sponge.

2.Next, add two white square on the cheek, in line with the corners of the mouth, using the #4 round brush. Then add a bolt on each temple. The bolt is a circle with a rectangle coming out of the middle, pointed towards the eye. Outline the bolt with black using the #0 round brush.

3. Using the hydra sponge half, dip in black paint, using very little water. Sponge black paint into eye sockets, and on chin.

4. Finally using the #4 round brush, add hair on the top of the forehead. Start at the top of the head, and push the brush down in a quick motion. Repeat until you have plenty of hair. Add some lines coming out from the inner corner of the eyes, and add wrinkles to the outer corner of the eyes.  Outline the stitches on the cheek, and paint a thin line going from the stitches to the corner of the mouth. Now your cute little one has turned into a mad Frankenstein!
