This video demonstrates how to face paint a frog 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 and white face paint to create the body of the frog on the cheek. Start with two eyes and a long oval for the mouth of the frog. Add the feet and splayed legs and then the lily pad on which the frog is sitting.
Step 2: Use light green face paint and a medium brush to fill in the body and legs of the frog. Use a medium brush to fill in the lily pad with dark green face paint.
Step 3: Using a small brush and black face paint add a mouth and eyes and outline the lily pad. Use red face paint and a small brush for a tongue, and add a fly in black face paint at the end of the tongue. Add green glitter.
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.
