This video demonstrates how to paint a zebra 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: Load white face paint on medium brush and paint zebra ears above the eyebrows, then create the outline of a zebra over the rest of the face and fill in using a sponge with white except for chin and upper lip.
Step 2: Use a fine brush and black face paint for the mane in the center of the forehead and put black face paint on the upper lip and chin. Blend it in on the side a little bit.
Step 3: Use a medium brush and black face paint to create stripes with a variety of triangles from the outside of the mask. Add stripes above and on the ridge of the nose. Add black face paint stripes above the eyebrows. Paint the eyes with black as if it were eye liner.
Step 4: Use a fine brush to outline the muzzle with black face paint, add a little highlighting 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.
