Skeleton Face Paint Project

Level: Easy

What you'll need:

  • Face and body paints: black and white
  • Sponges
  • Paint brushes
  • Water in a spray bottle
  • Water to rinse the brushes and activate the paint


Note: Rinse colour from your sponge between steps.

Step 1- Spray water on your sponge to dampen it. Load it with white paint and apply all over the face in tapping motion. Leave the space around the eyes.

Step 2- Spray water on your sponge to dampen it. Load it with black paint and apply on the eye lids and around the eyes

Step 3- Load your brush with black paint and frame the black eyes to make them look neat and crisp. Use the same brush to create a curvy line on both sides of the face starting from the temple down under the cheek bones towards the teeth line. Also paint a U-shape hollow on the nose.

Step 4- Load a damp sponge with black paint and tap on the temples and the cheeks under the cheekbones to create the black hollows

Step 5- Load a clean brush with black paint and draw a line from the centre of the lips towards each cheek hollow. Flick the brush up and down to create short lines coming from the main line to form the teeth.

Step 6- Load a dry brush with just a little bit of black paint (add no water or just tiny bit of water) and create shadow lines above and under the eyes, above the cheek hollows and on the teeth. Your skeleton face painting is now ready!
