This video demonstrates how to face paint a dinosaur 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: Use a small brush with white face paint and trace the outline of a dinosaur on the cheek: first the head, a long neck, two little arms and a long pointy tail.
Step 2: Use light green face paint to color in the dinosaur on its head, back and tail with a small brush. Use a medium brush and dark green face paint to fill in the arms, stomach and legs.
Step 3: Use a small brush and brown face paint and add dots on the back and tail. Then use black face paint to add a few more dots, a mouth, an eye and outline the dinosaur. Add green sparkles.
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.
