Sports Facepainting 101

The coolest fans at the Super Bowl are definitely the ones who have dressed up with their face painted. But that can also backfire! If you don’t know how to do a good facepainting job, people might look at you like an ordinary clown. Here’s some advice to make sure you get the respect every hard core football fan deserves.

Sponge and Spread

First of all, to spread out a nice base layer to get rid of all your skin tone, use a sponge and spray it with some water before you load it up with paint. Now you can completely cover your face (and body if you dare), quickly and evenly. Use dark paint if you want to look scary and lighter paint to keep things light.

Eyes and eyebrows are key to a successful paint job. To get into those tight corners in between your eyes and your nose, you have to squeeze the sponge to make it smaller. Now look up when you are ready to do your bottom eyelid and close your eyes when you paint your top eyelids. To make sure the eyebrows don’t make your paintjob look amateur, press down harder to get through the hair.

Now you’re ready for your details. When you’re finished your base layer of paint, let it dry.  Be patient! The last thing you want to do is let your colors mix. Once it’s dry, you can paint on the lines, letters, team logo, numbers of the details of what you want to paint.

Impressive Ideas

Don’t have any ideas for something to paint? Is the team logo too hard to paint? Don’t worry… usually if a team has three colors, and if you paint those three colors in any way across your face with sharp edges and a strong base coat, you’re gonna look cool. Here are some great facepainting jobs:
