This video demonstrates how to paint a pirate 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 medium brush to put black face paint around one eye to create the patch. Use a medium brush to outline in black face paint. Use white face paint and a small brush to highlight the patch.
Step 2: Make a line with a small brush and black face paint to connect the eye patch. Add black moustache on the upper lip and a goatee on the chin with a medium brush.
Step 3: Add white face paint to make skull on the cheek. Create two circles to create the skull. Then create the crossbones with white face paint (two circles and a line). Outline the crossbones and skull with a small brush in black face paint. Highlight the patch with white face paint.
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.
