This video demonstrates how to paint a leopard 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: Using a medium brush and yellow face paint, and create the ears and then outline the entire face; use a sponge to fill in the yellow face paint leaving space around the eyes.
Step 2: Use a brush and put orange face paint in the middle of the face to add dimension.
Step 3: Take a medium brush and apply white face on the eyelids, and over the eyes including the eyebrows. Add white face paint above the top lip with a medium brush to create a muzzle.
Step 4: Add black face paint to the nose with a medium brush. Add dots and lines around the muzzle and add whiskers.
Step 5: Using a medium brush, add black face paint in open circles (like the letter "C") to make leopard spots. Fill in the center of the circles with white face paint with a small brush. And add a little 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.
