How To Paint An Easy Spider-Man Face

Your rating: None
If you are a superhero fan and Spider-Man is your favourite, this face design may be just for you. You can easily paint your face into Spider-Man at home and it’s suitable for Halloween parties or dressing up events.
What you'll need: 
Red face paint
White face paint
Black face paint
Face wipes
Clean face with face wipes. Dip a sponge in the white face paint. Paint around the eyes with white paint and start from the corner of the eyes and paint just under your eyebrow as well. Make sure you follow the natural shape of your eyebrows and extend it to the edge of the face. It should look like a large teardrop shape and this will give you a Spider-Man eye shape.
Dip another sponge in the red face paint. Paint the rest of the face with red paint including the mouth.
Now it's time to create the web effect. Dip the brush into the black paint. Outline the eye shape with black paint. Draw a cross shape from the centre of the face. Draw curved lines from the middle of the cross point, they should look like the letter X but wiggly shaped. Make sure the lines all meet at the same point in the centre.
Start drawing curved lines in between the lines you’ve just drawn. They should look like bow shaped lines pointing into your face. Finish curving your web and make sure the lines are symmetrical.
That’s your Spider-Man face done. You can wear a Spider-Man outfit to complete the look if you want.
This is a very simple face paint to do yourself and you can vary the design or colour. You can have a blue Spider-Man face for example.
You can paint your Spider-Man face just above your mouth for a different look.
