This video demonstrates how to paint a peacock 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: Make a mask around the eyes with a medium brush and outline the eyes with light blue face paint. Don't paint on top of the eyelids.
Step 2: Use a medium brush and light green face paint to add feathers at the top of the mask (feathers are like small ovals on the perimeter of mask).
Step 3: Use a small brush and dark blue face paint to add "eyes" in the middle each feather--leave a little opening in the middle of the "eyes" for another color to come. Using the same small brush and black face paint and add a dot in the middle of the eyes in the feathers. Add small lines at the top of the feathers in black face paint - give them a "feathery" touch.
Step 4: Add a peacock head on the bridge of the nose with black face paint. Continue with the black and line the mask. Take some white face paint and a small brush and highlight the "eyes," the peacock and all around the mask. Add some eye shadow: using a medium brush and light green face paint cover the eye lids. Then take a small brush and black face paint and line the eyes and add eyelashes. Add opal and blue glitter for sparkle.
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.
