1. First, starting with the white face paint and a medium round brush, draw an outline of the Iron man design on the face. Paint a line going across the eyebrows, then paint two squares around the eyes, connected to that line. Paint a square shape in the middle of the forehead.  Paint lines going from the corners of the mouth, and up over the cheek bones.  Add the outline under the chin and connect to the rest of the design.
