Face Painter Stacey Perry Alligator Tutorial

I recently face painted for a store’s grand opening. After 9 days of painting, I chose some of the top requested and loved designs to share with you. For this week, I will be showing you my Alligator Eye Eater tutorial. Let’s get started.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Global Fun Stroke Amazon
  2. Paradise Berry Red
  3. Wolfe White
  4. Wolfe Black
  5. 1/2 inch Angle Brush
  6. #2 Round Brush

The application:

Load your 1/2″ Angle Brush with your Global Fun Stroke, Amazon. Begin on top of the eye and paint in the alligator’s nostrils, snout and eye sockets. continue the stroke around and then under the eye. You will want the darker color to be on the outside.

Continue painting the alligator’s body down the side of the face as pictured above.

Next, begin outlining and detailing the alligator using your #2 brush loaded with Wolfe Black. You will also be adding some “scales” to his back.

Finish by painting his claws, nostrils and eye details.

This design is fast and is perfect to use for a big event when you have a long line of kids waiting to be painted. When you have more time to spare, you can easily add water, fish etc…

Let us know if there’s anything special you would like to see from us in future tutorials and demos.

Until then… live, love, paint!
