This video demonstrates how to face paint a bumble bee cheek art design:
General Tips: Apply the lighter face paint colors before starting on the darker colors.
How to Use a Face Paint Brush: To load face paint on the brush: dip the brush into a bowl of water and mix it into the face paint to pick up the face paint. Apply the face paint brush in smooth even strokes.
How to Use a Face Paint Sponge: To load face paint onto the sponge: add water to the face paint sponge and dip into the face paint. Make sure that the face paint has a creamy consistency. Remember to try to use the minimum amount of water. First smear the face paint on then dab the face paint with the sponge to get an even opaque coverage.
Step 1: Add two circles with a medium brush on the cheek with yellow face paint, one for the body of the bee and one for head. With white face and a medium brush paint add two wings to the bumble bee.
Step 2: Using a small brush and black face paint, make the stripes across the yellow body of the bee and add a stinger. Then make the face of the bumble bee, the antennas, and outline the wings with black face paint.
Step 3: Add some highlights in white face paint with a small brush and add opal glitter for effect.
To Remove Face Paint: Remove the face paint with mild soap and water with a washcloth, baby wipe or paper towel. Remember to keep the face paint out of the eyes.
To Store Your Face Paint: Store the face paint with the lid closed. The face paint should last 18 months after 1st opening.
