This video demonstrates how to paint a skull/skeleton 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: Apply an outline of the skeleton in white face paint with a medium brush. Use sponge to fill in the face, except over the eyes with white. Please make sure the white is filled in well.
Step 2: Use grey face paint over the eyes with a medium medium brush. Then use black face paint over the grey then blend the edges of the eyes with white face paint.
Step 3: Take a fine brush and using black face paint create a line from top of the mouth and the side of the lips, also outline the nostrils in black 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.
