Arachnids - Scorpion Face Paint by Ulianka

Posted by on

This incredible scorpion face paint design by Ulianka is just out of this world! Follow along with step-by-step instructions to recreate this look!

With one stroke technique make your own scorpion in just a couple of strokes.

1. Sketch out a white 3D coffin shape using a point brush. This will allow to hold a proper shape for a scorpion.

2. With a 1/2 inch brush to fill across the top of the body, then the rest of the body. Used my own one one stroke out of white brown and black.
