Final 2

Blacklight Pop ArtThe “pop art” art movement emerged during the 50’s which paved way to a very unique and enticing kind of art and design. Surely, it would look good as a face paint design for Halloween!


We recommend Graftobian ProPaint Metallic/Neon Palette for this design.

You may also get all the face paint colors used in this tutorial in one kit. Choose from either the Graftobian Makeup Kit or the Diamond FX Makeup Kit.


Tips: Always start with a clean face. Make sure that all paints, tools and the work area are all clean. Prepare everything you need before you start.
