DIY Halloween Face Paint 23 Oct

facepaintIt’s nearly that time of year when things get a bit spooky and there’s usually a party or two and scary outfits are needed.  We thought we’d try the snazaroo out and do a freaky face paint design.  This was done in about 30 minutes and is a great way to get dressed up without buying a whole outfit.

For this we used:

Snazaroo : The Scary Collection

Gel Blood

facepaint21.  We asked Ben to have a go at painting Matt as he’s an amazing model maker and part of The Meat Collective, so we thought he’d be a good person to do the face painting. Ben used the sponge to paint on the green base colour.
