This video demonstrates how to paint a zombie 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 sponge and coat the face with white face paint. Then fill in the outline using more white. Put on lightly.
Step 2: Put on yellow face paint lightly with a sponge, blending in without making it too bright. Coverage doesn't have to be perfect right now; effects come later.
Step 3: Use grey face paint around the eyes with a medium brush. Add a little bit of black, also with a medium brush, to shade the eyes. Blend it in a little bit. Use white face paint and a medium brush to make teeth around the mouth. Add red face paint to paint the side of the mouth with a medium brush.
Step 4: Take a small brush and black face paint and make lines around the mouth and outline the teeth. Now, make cracks all over the face with black and a small brush. Use white face paint with a small brush to highlight the cracks. Brush lightly with a medium brush and white and then add a little bit of black for the eyes.
Step 5: Use stage blood on the cracks and the cheeks with a small brush. Make drips to make it scary.
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.
