This video demonstrates how to paint a mime 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 white face paint and create an outline of the face. Fill in the outline with white face paint using a sponge over the eyes and lips as well. Fill in lighter parts with a medium brush to create an even finish.
Step 2: Use a small brush and the black face paint and add lines around the eyes. Create high eyebrows with black face paint and add a black heart to the cheek.
Step 3: Use a medium brush and red face paint to create red lips on a portion of the lips. 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.
