This video demonstrates how to paint a fox 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: Load medium brush with orange face paint and outline the top half of the face in orange to create a mask around the eyes: make fox ears above the brows, and bring the mask around the cheeks and mouth. Fill in the outline of the fox with orange face paint and a sponge.
Step 2: Use a medium brush and white face paint and make a white muzzle above and below the mouth, paint over the lips with the white.
Step 3: Color in the ears with a medium brush and white face paint--make two small triangles inside the ears. With the same brush and white, paint the eyelids.
Step 4: Take a small brush and black face paint add a black nose to the nose tip. Add black lines to outline the chin of the muzzle. Add whiskers by creating a zig zag line in black face paint on the bottom half of the face with lines and a small brush. Add eyelashes for a girl fox by drawing eyelashes from the corner of the eyes in black face paint. Use white face paint for creating white hairs for detail on the ears, cheeks and eyelids. 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.
