This video demonstrates how to paint a lion 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: Use a sponge to put yellow face paint over the entire face except the chin and around the eyes over the eyebrows. Make ears with a medium brush and yellow above the eyes.
Step 2: Use white face paint and a medium brush to create the muzzle (above and below the mouth) and paint the eyes.
Step 3: Use a medium brush and brown face paint to create the mane of the lion in the middle of the forehead. Also use a medium brush to add fur to the outside of the mask.
Step 4: Use black face paint and a medium brush to add a triangular kitty nose. Add a line down on the upper lip and three dots on either side. Continuing with black face paint and a small brush, add whiskers and outline the top of the eyes, some fur and the mane. Add some highlights with white face paint and a small brush. 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.
