STEP ONE | DRAGON BODY OUTLINE
Start the design off by creating two circles, one larger than the other, with a round brush loaded with black paint. Then, create a long, turning line coming down from the larger circle. At the bottom of this line, paint two small strokes to establish the base.
STEP TWO | DRAGON SPIKES
Using the same brush, create spikes coming from the established base by pressing and quickly releasing the brush throughout the stroke. Use this technique to complete the details of the dragon head, including the spikes and mouth.
STEP THREE | RED DETAIL
Using the same technique, create colourful strokes on the inside of the base lines and between the spikes. This will add extra detail and make the design stand out. Use this same brush and paint to give the dragon an eye on the bigger head circle.
STEP FOUR | PREPARE YOUR BRUSH
Using a double loading technique, load the round brush with yellow paint, and then lightly dip the end in red paint.
STEP FIVE | DRAGON FLAMES
Using the double loaded brush, repeat the stroke technique used earlier to create flames coming from the mouth, dipping the brush in red paint occasionally when needed.
Tips to make your next dragon face paint design even better
