skeleton face paint diy

After making the skeleton costume here is an attempt at making an accurate skull with face paint to line up with the hat. This was the best photo i had but it was before a little bit of detail was added.

I used the Rainbow Face Painting Kit from amazon. Pretty happy with the kit. You might want to have a few more brushes then the one it comes with. I mostly used a 1/2" brush to do the large spaces. Then used a fine brush to make the sutures and blended them into the white.

The tips I have are:
The best way to go is to take a look at a real skull image while painting.
Start with the white and add the black after.
Feel the cheekbone, jaw and eyes to correctly make the shapes.

Accurate Skeleton Costume

This is my best attempt at making a realistic skeleton costume.

I am painting on with speedball screen printing ink overlay the correct anatomical landmarks. In this photo you see the sternum and clavicles painted with the bottom of the ribs marked in chalk. All that I really bought is a pair of small black gloves and a white hat.

Close up of hands and chest for accurate and scary skeleton costume.

Oh man I wish I had thought of buying the glow in the dark ink instead
