Video Tutorial: Purple Cartoon Octopus


Cartoon animals are fun to face paint, but octopuses are amusing in particular because there is a great deal of artistic flexibility with their many arms sprawling all over the place (or face). I hope this crazy octopus splatted on the side of the face will be popular with the kids in your line this year.
