Experience level: Beginner/Intermediate

Sharks are an absolute favorite among boys at a face painting party or large event, So with a little twist of the wrist i’ll show you how to make a very fast shark with a one stroke brush and split cake. I will show you different ways to either leave it “as-is” or simply if there’s not a big line to add a little more on to the painting.

Preparations:

1: Make sure your person is clean of oils or sweat

2: Get your items you need in front of you within reach.

3: Have Fun!

Tools used:

¾ One Stroke Brush

#2 Round Brush

Colors Used in This Tutorial:

Blue Shaded One Stroke Split Cake

Diamond FX Black

Diamond FX White

Application Steps:

1: Load your brush

2: Make 2 lines like shown, Then

make an additional line on the first line you’ve made

(these are markers for a later stroke technique)

3: Now with a swooping motion slightly turn your brush like shown and lightly let go at the end with a point

4: Now repeat the step for the bottom jaw and end where you left off from step 3

5: Next you make a “U” shape for the tail where you ended with step 4.

(Like Shown)

6: You now add the dorsal fins to your shark.

(if you have a very long line I would had a black dot for the eye and some white teeth and stop here)

7: If you do not have a line feel free to start with this step! With your #2 round brush you begin outlining your shark, adding gils and the eye.

8: With your now washed out #2 brush you begin adding your white highlights and teeth(i’ve added a mean and happy version of the shark).

9: If you have time feel free to add some bubbles and swish motions tear drops for movement!
