This video demonstrates how to paint a dog face 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: Paint around the one eye with white face paint using a medium brush. Make a white spot on opposite cheek. Then add white face paint over the top lip to make a muzzle.
Step 2: Using black face paint and a medium brush, paint the other eye and opposite cheek in black face paint. Then use a small brush to make a round nose in black face paint.
Step 3: Use a small brush to outline the muzzle in black and add whiskers and dots in black.
Step 4. Use red face paint with a medium brush to create the tongue. Outline the tongue with a small brush in black face paint. Add opal sparkles 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.
