Clown face painting (step by step)

Clown face painting is fun and in this case was painted quickly under time pressure using Kryolan face paints. Note: It is helpful to have a head band to keep the models hair of the face. Various color combinations could be used. The artist was trying out some of the UV enhanced colors which don't show up well in the photos.

Step 1

Start by choosing a bright red for the enlarged smiling lips and paint in this area. Then also choose a bright color for the nose and enhance the nose.
