How To Paint A Batman Mask On Your Face

Your rating: None
Batman is a popular superhero especially amongst young boys and also grown up men. If you plan to go to a party dressed as Batman, you could easily paint a Batman mask on your face. Instead of wearing a Batman mask that looks the same as everyone else, you can have your own unique look. It won’t take you long to do and heads will turn when you walk into the party.
What you'll need: 
Black face paint
Face wipes
Wipe the face clean with face wipes. Dip the brush in black face paint to create the bat body and head. Use black paint to draw an upside down triangle from the bridge of the nose to the tip of the nose. Draw a small roundish head from the flat part of the drawn triangle. Draw thin black triangles from the sides of the drawn head. This will be the bat ears. Colour in the drawn parts in black.
Draw a black long curve at each side of the face. This will be the outside edge of the bat wing.
Join each curve to the top and bottom of the drawn bat body. For the upper wings you should draw a shallow ‘w’ shape with curves. The curves and points should be pointing towards the forehead. This will make it easier to draw the curved wings. For the lower wings you should draw an ‘m’ shape with curves. The curves and points should be pointing towards the nose and the corners of the top lip.
Once the outline is finished you can fill it in with black paint and brush. You can leave a little area around the eyes paint free if you want.
Your Batman face is ready and you can wear your Batman outfit with it.
This is a simple and basic Batman face mask to paint for a child or adult. You can vary the design in many ways. For example, you can paint a yellow oval shape over the top part of your face first. Then follow the same instructions as above and just draw the bat image smaller. Once you’ve drawn the image, you can outline the oval yellow shape or leave it. This will look like the Bat Signal in the Batman film painted on your face. Enjoy being the talk of the party; Dark Knight.
To paint it for a girl, you can paint the bat design on a pink background or any other colour.
You can be as decorative as you want with the design of the wings. Use you imaginations and experiment.
