Load your #4 brush with Wolfe Black and begin making a slight “S” shape to form the eyebrows.

Load your 1/4″ Flat brush with Paradise Red followed by Paradise Black on one corner of the brush. Begining in the corner of the eye, you will be painting a half egg shape that will extend to the eyebrow and down to the outside corner of the eye. You will then need to load your #4 Round Brush with Paradise Red and paint in the lips and nose.

With your #4 brush still loaded with Paradise Red, extend the mouth  up on each side of the lips with jagged strokes. Add “drips” to the inside and outside corners of each eye.

Lightly load your #4 brush with Paradise Black and begin adding details such as forehead and eye creases. You can also add some black to the mouth area in a random pattern.

Let’s get that face nice and dirty now by adding yellow and red from your Ben Nye 6 color Death wheel.  You can smear red on your lips to give it a really grungy look. Add Mehron Stage Blood to the mouth and corners of the eyes.

Add some Mehron Stage blood to your stipple sponge and begin using scraping strokes on the face. Take your #4 round brush and dip the brush in water. You will be adding the water to each color under the eyes to make each color run. Now it will look like your clown is crying a rainbow. You can follow up with some veins using your #4 brush and the grey from your Death wheel.
