How To Paint A Dalmatian Dog Face

Your rating: None
Dalmatians are cute looking dogs that are adored by children as well as adults. If you’ve watched the movie 101 Dalmatians you can see why people find Dalmatians so charming. You may be such a fan of the film that you want to paint your face into a Dalmatian for a party. It’s a very simple and cute dog face that you can easily do at home.
What you'll need: 
White face paint
Black face paint
Red face paint
Bowl of water
Face wipes
Wipe the face with face wipes. Dip a sponge into the white face paint. Cover your face in white paint but leave one eye area unpainted for now.
Dip sponge in black face paint. Cover the unpainted eye area in a thick black eye patch shape. Paint a black eyebrow on the other eye. It should end up looking with one eye with a black patch and the other eye plain white with a black eyebrow.
Paint random big black spots on your forehead and cheek area. Paint the tip of your nose black.
Paint your top lip black and paint a triangle above the top of your lip that reaches your nose edge.
Paint a black curve from the corners of your mouth and paint tiny dots within that area. This will define the muzzle more. Paint thin black small whiskers from the tiny dots. Wash out black paint in bowl of water and wipe off excess water on tissue.
Dip brush in red face paint. Paint your lower lip in red paint and draw a red curving tongue at one side of you mouth. Colour in the tongue with red paint and draw a thin black line in the centre of the tongue.
Your Dalmatian face is now ready. You can add a Dalmatian outfit to it if you want.
You can change this look as you see fit. You can add more detail to the Dalmatian design if you want.
You can paint the top half of your face in a Dalmatian design for a different look.
