  1. Starting with the white face paint and the 1 inch flat brush, start to paint half of the face white.  To activate the paint, add a tiny bit of water and work into the brush. To get a nice consistent edge, start at the top of the forehead and drag the brush down the middle of the eyes, nose and across the mouth to the bottom of the chin. Do the same for the forehead. Starting at the same spot as before, drag the brush across the forehead, following the curve of the face. Fill in. You might have to do two to three layers of white paint to get an even coverage.
  2. Next, using the medium filbert and the red face paint. Fill in the lips.
  3. Next using the round #0 brush, and the black face paint, start to create the black checkers. Start at the edge and drag across the face to make diagonal lines. Make sure they are evenly spaced, about an 1.5″ apart. It may help to use a ruler to make the lines. You can line it up at starting on the inner side, and then with the outer edge.  Make sure to use a very light brush stoke.
  4. Next using the 1″ brush or the filbert, whichever is more comfortable for you, start to fill in. Make sure to start and the edge and drag down for even coverage. Go nice and slow and the quality of the work will show. Happy Jestering!
