This video demonstrates how to face paint a pumpkin cheek art 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: Using a medium brush, make a circle with orange face paint on the cheek for the pumpkin. Use a small brush and brown face paint to make a stem.
Step 2: Use a small brush and light green face paint and draw the leaves around the stem. Again using a small brush and black face paint add stripes on the pumpkin and outline the leaves and the outside of the pumpkin.
Step 3: Highlight the stripes on the pumpkin with white face paint. 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.
