How to Paint a Skull and a Mardi Gras Mask
In this 30-minute artistsnetwork.tv video workshop*, Brian and Nick Wolfe (co-authors of the Extreme Face Painting book from IMPACT Books) will show you how to paint a fiendish skull and a friendly mardi gras mask, step by step. Along the way you'll learn tips for detailing and adding dimension to your faces, when and how to paint with a sponge or a brush, and more. Follow along with this preview to make your skulls look more angular and emaciated--shading black on top of all the darkest darks will push these areas deeper into the head, making the lighter areas pop even more and giving dimension to the skull.
Made up of 50 step-by-step demos, the Extreme Face Painting book by Brian & Nick Wolfe is set up in two sections--one half features friendly subjects (like birds, puppies and princesses), while the other is a fiendish array (like vampires, zombies and mummies).
