This video demonstrates how to paint a monkey 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 light brown face paint and paint an outline of the center of the monkey's face around and through the middle of the face. Make a backwards "B" shape on the left side of the face and a "B" shape on the right side of the face. Fill in the outline with a sponge. Cover the lips and the eyebrows.
Step 2: Outline the monkey face with dark brown face paint with a medium brush.
Step 3: Use a medium brush and black face paint, add bushy eyebrows. Use small brush to add smaller lines to fill in the eyebrows.
Step 4: Use a small brush to make a small line on the outside of the nostrils with black face paint. Make a monkey mouth: add lines to the outside of the mouth and darken the lips.
Step 5: Use a small brush and add white for highlights to the dark brown area. Add some 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.
