This video demonstrates how to paint a tiger 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: Start with sponge and use some orange face paint to create base on the nose, cheeks and the middle of the forehead. Create ears over the eyebrows with a medium brush and orange face paint.
Step 2: Add yellow face paint in the middle of the face with a sponge to create dimension for the tiger face. Use a medium brush and white face paint and paint above the lips to make a muzzle, over the eyelids and above the eyes for the tiger's ears.
Step 3: Using a small brush and black face paint a tiger nose and add lines above the lip and add a few dots around the muzzle area. Again using a small brush and black face paint, outline the top of the tiger ears and add a few lines as hair in the middle. Add triangles on the outside of the mask to create stripes on the tiger.
Step 4: Use a fine brush and some black face paint to add whisker. Add a little highlighting with white face paint on the nose. Add some opal glitter on the nose and eyes and cheeks.
To Store Your Face Paint: Store the face paint with the lid closed. The face paint should last 18 months after 1st opening.
